Bill Engvall's gentle sitcom is filled with sweet stereotypes
Toledo Blade - Toledo, OH, USA - Stand-up comedian Bill Engvall wasn't widely known until he teamed up with Jeff Foxworthy and other fellow comics in 2000 as part of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which proved to be quite a success, spawning a handful of movies and a spinoff TV sketch comedy series.

"When I was in fifth grade, all I wanted to do was to make the class laugh," chuckles Foxworthy. "Now, I'm a grownup, and someone's payin' me to do it!"

And, he notes, he'll continue to draw a paycheck for cracking wise, as the quiz show that has kids and adults testing their knowledge has been picked up for a 32-episode, sophomore-season run. Not that the program's success is any big shock to Foxworthy, who'll be
