VIDEO: Artie Lange on Joe Buck


Artie Lange hijacked Joe Buck’s new HBO show from Brett Favre on Monday night. That’s not the way the premiere of “Joe Buck Live,” the successor to “Costas Live,” was supposed to go. Lange, a comedian on Howard Stern’s Sirius satellite radio show, stealing the spotlight from Favre, the quarterback who keeps coming back?

The bookend to the show was a panel show featuring Artie Lange, the actor Paul Rudd, and Jason Sudeikis of “Saturday Night Live.” The latter two need not have shown up for this as was Artie Lange staging a hostile takeover. His scatological, homophobic, insult act was delivered with a sort of blithe and gleeful explosiveness that threw Joe Buck a bit. This 10-minute trap on the stage at the Equitable Center’s auditorium in Midtown Manhattan was unlike any live TV Joe Buck had ever practiced with Tim McCarver or Troy Aikman.

As Artie Lange was popping off, Joe Buck said, “I was thinking, ‘How much longer do we have in the segment?’ I thought that spending time on a treadmill felt long, but that was eight or nine minutes turned into an eternity. But it’s cable. You can get away with it.”

Artie Lange is a fucking hack. Buck should have known better.

How dare Artie Lange "hijack" this great show.
I wanted more generic, scripted bits about "oh this is us in a picture when we were young.. let's have a hug." Talk about fucking hacky.
