TBS to count down the year’s funniest ads


Of all the “Best Of…” lists issued at the end of the year, one that has really captured the attention of comedy fans is TBS’s special Funniest Commercials of the Year, now entering its sixth year.  Comic actor Kevin Nealon (Weeds, Saturday Night Live) will return to host this year’s one-hour compilation, which will be shot in various locations throughout New York City.  In addition, viewers will once again be invited to go online to TBS’s VeryFunnyAds.com to watch and vote on their favorites from a list of 10 finalists.

The show, which premieres Tuesday, 12/15 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), will feature 50 different commercials from around the globe, many seen for the first time on American television.  In addition to Nealon serving as host, the special will feature cameo appearances to be announced later.

Ten commercials have been chosen as finalists to be voted upon by viewers.  The finalists will be available for viewing online at VeryFunnyAds.com from Nov. 15 – Nov. 30.  Votes will then be tallied, with the #1 “Funniest Commercial of the Year” unveiled at the end of the special after a top-10 countdown.
