Nobody watches "Jake and the Fat Man." (2:11)

IS JAKE AND THE FAT MAN.

WHICH I WAS READING IN TV GUIDE

JAKE AND THE FAT MAN IS THE ONLY SHOW IN TV HISTORY

THAT HAS NEVER BEEN TAPEDBY ANYBODY, ANYWHERE.

( laughter )

YOU KNOW?

( applause )

THERE IS NO RECORD ANYWHEREOF A V.C.R. EVER BEING SET...

TO RECORD JAKE AND THE FAT MAN.

YEAH, THEY ALL SAID

"HEY, WE'LL CATCH HIMSITTING DOWN NEXT WEEK."

( laughter )

YOU KNOW,OLD WILLIAM CONRAD, MAN

THAT'S THE CAT WHO PLAYSFAT MAN, YOU KNOW.

HE'S BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME.

HE'S THE VOICE ON THE FUGITIVE--

YOU KNOW, THE ONE THATTALKS ABOUT THE FUGITIVE--

AND HE'S MADE A LOT OF MONEY.

IT'S OBVIOUSHE DOESN'T CARE A LOT

ABOUT A LOT OF LITTLE,PETTY THINGS ANYMORE, YOU KNOW

BECAUSE HIS AGENTPROBABLY CALLED HIM THAT DAY

AND SAID, "LISTEN, WILLIAM,I GOT A SHOW FOR YOU," YOU KNOW?

"ONLY THING IS, THEY WANT TOCALL YOUR CHARACTER 'FAT MAN.'"

AND HE SAID, "HEY, THAT'S COOL."

"I'LL TAKE IT.

"JUST PUT INTHE CONTRACT, THOUGH

'NO MORE THAN TEN STEPSIN ANY ONE SCENE.'"

( laughter )

"ALL RIGHT?

BECAUSE JAKE WILL SAY, "FAT MAN,THERE'S A BODY OVER HERE."
