The title of Bob Saget’s book, Dirty Daddy: The Chronicles of a Family Man Turned Filthy Comedian, shouldn’t surprise anyone who’s familiar with his career. But his answers to our Pop Culture Personality Test will. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

Tom Bergeron is stepping down as host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, leaving the coveted spot open (hey, it’s about as steady as a showbiz job gets). When thinking of who should replace him, our minds immediately went to Bob Saget, who hosted the show from 1989 to 1997, but then we thought: What if every Full House star — not just Danny Tanner — was eligible for the position? After all, this has already been the year of Full House reunions with Saget, John Stamos, and Dave Coulier’s multiple TV appearances together and the upcoming Candace Cameron Bure/Scott Weinger guest spots on The Neighbors.
To further this recent wave of Full House nostalgia, here’s our evaluation of the host abilities of each Tanner (and honorary Tanner): READ FULL STORY
It was a full house last night on Watch What Happens Live.
In addition to John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier — who’ve been making the press rounds together in anticipation of their Super Bowl commercial this weekend — DJ Tanner herself, Candace Cameron Bure, stopped by the clubhouse to help host Andy Cohen quiz the guys about what they remember regarding the details of their 1988-1995 sitcom. As evidenced by knowing what DJ’s full name is (Donna Jo), clearly John Stamos finds himself drawn into the near-constant reruns more than he lets on.

First, the men of Full House reunited in an Oikos Super Bowl ad. Then Wednesday night, they gathered together once again to give us the reunion we really wanted: Bob Saget, John Stamos, and David Coulier reprised their Full House roles in a skit on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where the three helped quell Jimmy’s fears about leaving for The Tonight Show.
If you didn’t know, you might think it’s a clip straight from the hit ’90s show– except for the whole Jimmy-Fallon-replacing-Michelle-Tanner part. Uncle Joey spouts out some Popeye jokes, Uncle Jesse gets defensive about his hair, Danny gives some sage advice, and the three band together in a rendition of Elvis’ “Teddy Bear.” Jimmy goes to bed feeling better about leaving Late Night and reminisces about the good times he’s had as host, and we’re left wondering why the trio never appears in our bedrooms to sing away our nightmares.

John “The Milkman” Stamos, Dave “The Paperboy” Coulier, and Bob “The Evening TV” Saget aren’t just former Full House castmates — by all appearances, they’re also legitimately close pals who were truly thrilled to reunite for a 30-second yogurt commercial. Evidence: Yesterday, the trio had a bromantic night out on the town in New York City…
I’ll give you a hint: Think dudes… and San Francisco… and something tailor-made for the 20-something demographic.
No, Dannon Oikos pitchman Stamos isn’t teaming up with the cast of HBO’s Looking for a new Super Bowl ad. Instead, he’s apparently joining forces with a few guys near and dear to his heart. You might just say he’d like to shoot commercials with them… forever.

The moment we heard that Jack Black was this year’s honoree at the infamous Friars Club roast, we expected a good show. What we didn’t expect was that Al Roker and Bob Saget would become the target of more jokes than Black himself.
During Friday’s roast at the midtown Hilton in New York City, roastmaster Bob Saget kicked off the evening, which would end up targeting Jack’s guests even more so than Jack. And while most of the insults were funny, there were a few topics that got old fast. Yes, Al Roker pooped his pants. We get it. Yes, Jerry Lewis is very, very old. And so is Gene Simmons. And The Beach Boys. People get old, OK? And finally, yes, we understand that both Jack Black and fellow comedian Artie Lange are overweight. Can we move on yet?
Once everyone got past the weight and age topics — they never got past the Al Roker joke — the show started to pick up. The event, which was filled with the occasional video message from the likes of Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Shirley MacClaine, Matthew McConaughey, and Will Ferrell (as Ron Burgundy), ran smoothly.
Richard Marx even got up on stage and performed a Tenacious D song in the middle of the roast, which was bizarre, but somehow worked. And other than a few very distasteful digs at comedian Artie Lange for stabbing himself, the show was full of insults that had the crowd — and even Black — in hysterics.
Here are the top 15 zingers of the roast:
Best Digs at Jack
“Jack Black. That’s what Kim Kardashian does every night.” -Bob Saget
“He’s not your typical leading gnome.” -Bob Saget
“[Jack] prefers to be left alone, which is why he made Nacho Libre.” -Sarah Silverman
“Next up Jack is starring in Kung Fu Panda 3, cause he always goes back for thirds. Roger Ebert was going to review that movie but he took the easy way out.” -Jeff Ross
Best digs at Bob Saget
“Anyone who’s seen Bob’s stand-up knows it’s nothing like Full House. He played a sweet dad for Full House; he plays a terrible comedian for a half-full house.” -Sarah Silverman
“Thank you, Uncle Jesse.” -Amadeo Fusca
“I was so nervous for the roast today I wanted to go over my lines. Bob Saget snorted them all.” -Amadeo Fusca
“Bob is currently on a stand-up tour of colleges, and it’s just nice to see someone not killing at a school these days.” -Jeff Ross
“Do you know the myriad of emotions you go through when you find out you’re going to be the second lead in an MGM comedy then immediately find out it’s being directed by Bob Saget? It’s like finding out your 12-year-old star quarterback son is being recruited by a big college coach, and that coach is Jerry Sandusky.” -Artie Lange
Best Digs at other attendees
“These aren’t comedians, actors, musicians and a studio head. These are Jerry’s pall-bearers.” -Bob Saget on Jerry Lewis
“If you want to see more of Oliver [Platt], he’s in a different canceled show every year.” -Bob Saget
“You’re a bad actor Richard. You make Ice-T look like Sidney Poitier, let’s be honest.” -Amy Schumer to Law & Order: SVU’s Richard Belzer
“I loved you in Slumdog Millionaire.” –Amy Schumer to Padma Lakshmi
“What a turnout: Dee Snider, Debbie Harry, Joan Osborne. Last time I saw these three musicians together was in a $1 CD bin.” -Jeff Ross
“Is this a roast or a charity concert for shingles. The Beach Boys. Don’t you think it’s about time you change the name of the band to something more age appropriate, like The Grateful Dead?” -Jeff Ross
