Kathy Griffin To Host World’s Funniest Commercials On TBS

Emmy®-winning comedian Kathy Griffin is set to host the latest edition of TBS’s popular Funniest Commercials franchise when she heads to Las Vegas for WORLD’S FUNNIEST COMMERCIALS: HILARIOUS LIAISONS.  The one-hour special, featuring more than 50 comedic ads centered on relationships, is set to premiere Sunday, March 16, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).  It is being produced by Robert Dalrymple Productions in conjunction with TWI.  Dalrymple and Steve Mayer serve as executive producers, with Paul Miller directing.

“For this relationship-oriented special packed with hilarious commercials from around the globe, we are delighted to have the biting wit of the one-and-only Kathy Griffin,” said Ken Schwab, senior vice president of programming for TBS and TNT.  “And what better place for her to host from than the marriage capital of the world, Las Vegas.”

WORLD’S FUNNIEST COMMERCIALS: HILARIOUS LIAISONS will explore the conflicts that arise in relationships as depicted in comedic commercials from such companies as Amstel Light, Axe, Bacardi Silver, Budweiser, Geico, Diet Dr. Pepper, Levi’s, Motorola, Starburst, Subway and Toyota.

Each year, TBS presents several specials showcasing comedic commercials from around the globe.  The Funniest Commercials of the Year specials give viewers the chance to vote on their favorite ads, with the results unveiled in a year-end special.  Funniest Commercials of the Year: 2007 delivered more than 5 million viewers for its premiere telecast.

In addition to the Funniest Commercials specials, TBS also offers VeryFunnyAds.com, an extremely popular broadband destination featuring a treasure-trove of comedic ads.

Chicago native Kathy Griffin is probably best known for her critically acclaimed reality show My Life on the D-List, which last year took the Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program.  She is also known for her four-year stint on the NBC sitcom Suddenly Susan, with Brooke Shields.
