A ‘Blue-Collar’ Jennifer Lawrence

“Blue-collar” comedians Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall will reign over Tuesday’s primetime line-up on GetTV starting October 11. Not compelling enough to get you watching the over-the-air channel? How about the chance to see movie stars Jennifer Lawrence and Haley Joel Osment in early TV roles?

Lawrence appeared in all 31 episodes of The Bill Engvall Show, which ran from 2007-2009 on cable’s TBS. Engvall stars as ”a family counselor who is rarely able to understand his own family,” which includes his teenage daughter, played by Lawrence.

Osmont meanwhile plays Foxworthy’s young son in The Jeff Foxworthy Show, which aired on ABC in 1995-1996 and NBC in 1996-1997. In 40 episodes, explains IMDB, Foxworthy plays “a fish out of water living in Indiana with his Southern ways and humor. Eventually he takes his family back to Georgia and reconnects with his eccentric relations.”

Starting at 8 pm ET each Tuesday, GetTV will air three episodes of Foxworthy, followed by three episodes of Engvall. Visit GetTV’s “Get the Channel” page to find out where you can watch locally.
