In the vast post-mortem of "Joe Buck Live," there's been an uptick of interest in Buck's previous comedy-interview effort — those slightly encouraging Bud TV interview specials from 2007.
It's amazing that it was just two years ago, when Fox was supposed to the lucky recipient of the more unbuttoned Joe Buck, that Emeritus questioned if he was "quite limber enough to pull off a late-night gig." Well, now we know. Of course, if your opinion of Joe Buck pre-Lange jiz-chesting was not favorable, you were probably just as annoyed with Buck's casual, let's-drink-tallboys-in-the-back-of-a-taxi efforts for Bud TV. And, yes, I might have accidentally smoked PCP-laced weed out of a gravity bong this morning, but I don't think these interview segements were actually that bad.
