Fox After Breakfast

Show Summary

For a year, Fox was part of the morning show bandwagon. Set in a big apartment loft in New York City, host Tom Bergeron along with a short-lived hostess named Laurie Hibberd would interview guests.

There were also the 4 "road warriors" (later trimmed to 3) that reported features all over America.

Nancy Giles was the "unseen" (later seen starting in November) announcer & for comic relief to delight both adults & kids, Bob the Puppet (a big worm; voiced by Al Rosenberg).

Unfortunately, Fox fired Laurie, then Bob the Puppet (near Christmas) followed by Tom Bergeron. Nancy was now the sole surviving hostess of the show until August 1997. she was replaced by (and the show renamed) "The Vicki Lawrence Show".

  • More Like a Reality Elimination Show

    I liked Fox After Breakfast when it first started out. Bt through the months, Fox made lots of cuts & eliminations, it ended up becoming The Vicki Lawrence Show.

    My favorite was the mascot, Bob the Puppet. The little worm that brought smiles & laughs to the guest stars. He was the J. Fred Muggs of the 1990's. But I'll never forgive Fox for firing the mascot off the show, and of all days, near Christmas! What a bunch of scrooges!moreless
  • It wasn't broke, but they fixed it anyway

    "Fox After Breakfast" was a revamping of the far superior "Breakfast Time" on the fX network. Unfortunately, in transferring the show to Fox, the powers that be steadily removed everything about the show that made it worth watching. Although the new announcer, Nancy Giles, was a talented actress and comedian, she simply couldn't take the place of beloved "Breakfast Time" announcer Jim Kocot. Jeff MacGregor made a good new road warrior, but those who had been eliminated were missed. And the shortening of the show to an hour made everything too rushed.

    Then, when the show wasn't working as it ought to have done, instead of restoring what worked initially, the powers that be now began eliminating people: first co-host Laurie Hibberd, and then Bob the Puppet, after which any of the show's originality was gone for good. Before too long even Tom Bergeron was gone, and the show became the Vicki Lawrence show, which died a quick death.

    If "Fox After Breakfast" had maintained the quality of "Breakfast Time," it might still be with us. But in trying to fix what was never broken to begin with, the Fox executives managed to destroy a show that was, indeed, a breath of fresh air in the mornings.moreless
