Artie Lange late night spot

Hoboken pseudo-celeb Artie Lange inked a deal with Fox this week. Who knows what’ll come from it. I wonder if the deal had some conditional terms that would protect them in case it bombs like his movie Beer League did. A lot of people (online at least) seemed to have enjoyed the movie. At least they’ll make their money back and more once it releases on DVD on January 2nd.

Fox Considers Howard Stern Sidekick Artie Lange for Late-Night Role

artielange.jpgHoward Stern sidekick Artie Lange is the newest name under consideration by Fox as it looks to expand its late-night presence.

The Mad TV alum has signed a new development deal with Fox, and among the possibilities Lange has discussed with Fox as part of the deal include a new late-night talk show, a new sitcom, or being cast into an existing sitcom.

After launching weekly Saturday late night show Talk Show with Spike Feresten this season, Fox is actively looking to develop either a companion piece or another show that could eventually see them move back into the weeknight late night battle.

Lange acknowledged the deal Wednesday morning on Stern’s Sirius Satellite Radio program.

A Fox spokesperson confirmed the deal Wednesday morning.

It doesn’t. It was a suggestion. Sheesh, you gotta love these comment sections, everyone always looking to pick a fight!


Where does it mention that he would do the show in Hoboken? No wonder we have a town hall packed with “Cloven-hooved greedheads”…noone in this town pays attention to the details!


City Bistro or LUA would be the on site spot if Artie were to do it in Hoboken…
