Talkshow with Spike Feresten is an Americanmarker talk/sketch/variety television program on Fox starring Spike Feresten. It was originally aired between September 16, 2006 and May 16, 2009, making it the longest-running late night talk show in Fox's history. Unlike most late night talk shows in the United States, it was only aired on Saturday nights.

Show information

Writers include Joe Furey, Jeff Cesario and Adam Felber.

Some of the regular sketches on the show include "Idiot Paparazzi", where photographers hit the streets and take photos of people who vaguely look like famous people; "Comedy for Stoners", comedy visuals specially designed for someone who might be stoned; "Tomorrow's Headlines Today", when Spike reads fictional headlines ("Ford Lays Itself Off", "Al Gore Melts", "NBC Pre-cancels Fall '07 Lineup" The release of "Tyler Perry's, Why Do I Even Bother Naming The Movies As Long As It Says "Tyler Perry's" In Front of It", etc.) from Sunday's paper from various newspapers; sponsors for the show (such as Pitters beer, a very flammable beer sold in a breakaway bottle, with an AIDS test on the label, etc.), and "Backfat Sponsorship", where Spike uses one of his writer's (seemingly Felber, although not identified) backfat to advertise Fortune 500 companies (Red Bull, PS3, and Ign.com).

On May 7, 2007 Fox renewed Talkshow With Spike Feresten for a 2nd season, making it the longest running talk show on Fox.

From January 17, 2009, to February 21, 2009, the show had a six-week test run of hour-long episodes airing an hour earlier than usual; this comes in the wake of the recent cancellation of MADtv. As of the December 13th, 2008 show, Talkshow with Spike Feresten is broadcast in HD.

In May of 2009 Fox cancelled the show after three seasons, the longest-running late night television show in the history of the Fox network. The program remained on the air in repeats until the start of The Wanda Sykes Show on November 7, 2009.
