In the latest "let's put a wacky person in a crazy scenario and bask in the hilarity" news, A&E announced today via press release that Full House pushover/The Aristocrats filth-mouth Bob Saget will be returning to TV next year on Bob Saget's Strange Days (working title). It's a documentary series that plops Saget down in what the press release "fascinating worlds around the country"—like a Harley Davidson gang, a fraternity, and a group of Amish people—and… well, we'll have to see. It's like 30 Days minus the manual labor, and plus a guy who creeps everyone out when he appears on Entourage.
The release claims the show "will reveal hidden corners of the real America and the real Bob Saget, who is even funnier and more relatable when just being himself than any other role he’s ever played." It raises the question: Does America not know the real Bob Saget? As someone who's interviewed him and seen him perform stand-up live, I can attest to the fact that, as much as I could glean from that kind of scenario, he seems like a genuinely funny, nice guy. So perhaps there's more to the man than meets the IMDB. As always, The A.V. Club finds itself in the "cautiously optimistic" camp.
