The Dana Carvey Show
- 1 Season
As the Dana Carvey Show nears its 20th anniversary, it has somehow become more celebrated for the careers that it may have launched then the career it almost ended. The Dana Carvey Show only lasted eight episodes, with only seven of them airing on network television. Dana Carvey was of course the star of the show, coming fresh off a very successful stint on Saturday Night Live. The Dana Carvey Show was to be something similar to Saturday Night Live, with Carvey as the star. The show crashed and burned, thanks in no small part to some of the bizarre sketches that made the final cut. One of the more famous bizarre sketches included Carvey as Bill Clinton. Emboldened by high approval ratings, Carvey's Clinton dared to share with America the fact that he had genetically engineered teats with which he could nurse a baby, three puppies and a cat. Absurd indeed. Co-starring with Carvey were some names that went on to have careers that you could argue have eclipsed Carvey's. Names like Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell appeared with Carvey in sketches, and the writing staff consisted of Louis CK, Robert Smigel and Bob Odenkirk.
