Bergeron Confirmed That He Is Internet hosting a Sport Present
Bergeron was a visitor on the Sept. 13 episode of Bob Saget’s podcast, “Bob Saget’s Right here For You.” The 2 are longtime associates, courting again to when Saget appeared as a visitor through the 20-year celebration episode of “America’s Funniest Movies,” which Bergeron was internet hosting on the time.
Naturally, they touched on Bergeron’s upcoming new internet hosting job, which the previous “Dancing With the Stars” host remains to be protecting pretty quiet about. However Bergeron did affirm one huge element — it will be a recreation present.
“I gained’t provide the title of it. It’s a recreation present and it is rather paying homage to one thing I’ve achieved previously in some features,” teased Bergeron.
He additionally revealed that they shot a pilot for the sport present again in June and they’re awaiting phrase from NBC that they’ve been picked as much as sequence.
“We’re ready to listen to if it’s picked up. We’re listening to, as one does in Hollywood generally, there’s ‘nice buzz.’ However I’m a New Englander, it’s not actual till it’s actual,” stated Bergeron.
He additionally stated that he considers it a “good signal” that “another NBC show called and asked [him] if [he’d] be available to come by and do a little cameo.”
We don’t know which sitcom he’s showing on both, however we positively agree with Bergeron that it’s signal about the way forward for his new recreation present — NBC will definitely be cross-promoting the sport present alongside the sitcom cameo.
Bergeron Mentioned It Was ‘The Greatest’ Feeling to Be Again On a TV Set
In telling Saget about filming the sport present pilot, Bergeron stated he was capable of make the crew giggle and that was “the perfect” feeling.
“The nicest factor for me … was to get again on a stage and know that it was nonetheless enjoyable, that I might nonetheless break up the crew. It’s vital to me that the atmosphere be good for everyone, that everyone’s having time,” stated Bergeron. “We shot on a Monday and Tuesday again in June and the perfect response I obtained … one of many younger manufacturing assistants got here as much as me and she or he stated, ‘All people’s having
such time. And it’s a Monday!’ and I believed, ‘That’s the perfect. That’s the perfect proper there.’”
He additionally stated that at this level in his life, he doesn’t should work, so it’s good to have the ability to do one thing just because it’s so gratifying.
“At this explicit level in my profession, I’m simply seeking to have time. I don’t actually need to host something anymore. The one purpose I agreed to this explicit venture that we did the pilot for was who got here and requested me if I’d have an interest and when Harry Friedman reveals up, who’s the Obi-Wan Kenobi of that style, and he’s enthusiastic about it, that was a fairly persuasive argument and we had a ball, we actually did. So I’m hoping it will get picked up,” stated Bergeron.
In case you don’t know, Friedman was the longtime govt producer of each “Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune,” so he has fairly the sport present pedigree. We’re a bit stumped as to what the present is, nonetheless. We thought it is likely to be the reboot of “Password” that NBC picked u, besides that was already picked as much as sequence and Bergeron has stated they’re ready to listen to about being picked up.
We also thought it might be “The Wheel,” a U.Okay. import that incorporates a superstar panel, which might be how the present is “very reminiscent” of one among Bergeron’s previous reveals — he beforehand hosted “Hollywood Squares,” which featured a panel of celebrities. However Michael McIntyre, the host of the U.Okay. model, has already been introduced because the host for “The Wheel.”
So, that is both one thing that has not leaked in any respect but, or it’s Derek Hough’s new dance show. Hough has confirmed that it’s a TV present and Hough’s presence would most assuredly go a great distance in getting Bergeron on board, we’d suppose, in any case of their years working collectively on “Dancing With the Stars.” And the dancing side can be “very reminiscent” of “Dancing With the Stars.”
However a dancing present additionally doesn’t sound prefer it runs in Friedman’s vein. So we’re actually wracking our brains about what this could possibly be. Hopefully, we’ll know quickly!
“Dancing With the Stars” season 30 premieres Monday, September 20, 2021, at 8 p.m. Japanese and Pacific occasions on ABC.
