Kevin Nealon Weeds
Six years after suburban housewife-turned-widow-turned-pot dealer Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) first surfaced on Showtime on the series Weeds, the Botwin family is finally breaking out of pay cable and moving to TV Guide Network. And star Kevin Nealon couldn’t be happier.
“It’s fantastic that more people will be able to see it because I know a lot of people have not seen it,” star Kevin Nealon tells TVGuide.com. “It’s going to be so much more accessible.”
“Weeds Awareness Week” welcomes Weeds to TV Guide NetworkSince debuting in 2004, Weeds
has garnered a Golden Globe award and an Emmy, and has already been renewed by Showtime for next year. But Nealon almost wasn’t involved with the project, he says. “When I first heard about the script, I thought, ‘Oh I don’t know if I want to be involved in a stoner kind of a show.’ I had done that before,” he says. “But then I read the script and it had great writing and great characters.”
Check out videos from Weeds
Beyond the show’s title and many references to marijuana, Nealon says the series is about family and survival. “The fans can relate to a lot of these characters,” he says.
“They know people like this and I think people wonder, ‘How would I survive if I lost my husband? What would I do or what wouldn’t I do?’ That draws people into watching it.”Luckily for Nancy, she has many friends to turn to in her time of desperation. And one of her best assets is Nealon’s Doug Wilson, a city councilman, accountant and, well, giant stoner.

“Doug Wilson is readily available for Nancy to help out. He becomes like a pawn for her,” he says. “The biggest surprise about Doug is how dense he is. He never learns. He tries to get what he wants and always chooses what’s best for him.”After six seasons, Nealon is still surprised about the fan recognition the series receives.
It’s even surpassed the attention he gets for his nine-year stint on Saturday Night Live, he says.”I always wondered if there would be a show that I would do that would take the place of Saturday Night Live and it’s become Weeds,” he says.
“It’s just been a really fun ride from the get-go and just so exciting that it’s been picked up every year and more and more people are watching it. … It’s a great escape.”TV Guide Network is launching Weeds Awareness Week to launch the series starting Sunday, Oct. 17. A six-day marathon of episodes will run Sunday through Friday from 9 p.m.-2 a.m.

Kevin Nealon On ‘Man With A Plan’, Stand-Up Comedy & Johnny Carson
Published: March 1, 2019
(CBS Local)– While many people know Kevin Nealon as a TV and movie actor, all he ever wanted to do was stand-up comedy. The co-star of “Man With A Plan” has been in the stand-up comedy game for over 35 years and is back at Caroline’s On Broadway in New York to perform this weekend. Stand-up will always be Nealon’s, first love.
“I love stand-up because it’s what I started out doing even before the acting came along and Saturday Night Live,” said Nealon in an interview with CBS Local. “I never stopped doing it for almost the last 40 years and I love it.
Nealon is best known for his stint on Saturday Night Live from the late 1980s into the 1990s. The former Weekend Update anchor now hangs out with Matt LeBlanc on CBS’s hit sitcom “Man With A Plan.” Nealon has a tremendous amount of experience in the TV world but didn’t have much with sitcoms before this program.
“I don’t have a ton of experience with traditional sitcoms, I’ve done a few of them, but they didn’t last that long,” said Nealon. “This one has been a great experience. The writers are great and the show is really funny.
Matt LeBlanc is so intuitive, smart and insightful when it comes to sitcoms. He knows structure and characters and knows when the scene is not working. He watches out for everybody and knows everybody’s lines.”
In addition to his work on CBS, Nealon also hosts a YouTube series called “Hiking With Kevin” where he hikes with his celebrity friends in California. These experiences produce a natural high for the actor, but it doesn’t even come close to the feeling he had when he performed on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson for the first time in the 1980s.
“That was the highlight of my career to this day, even more so than Saturday Night Live,” said Nealon. “I remember it like it was yesterday. It was such a monumental time for me because I had been doing stand-up for six years. I had never been so nervous. I walk out to my spot on that shiny black floor and I forgot my act. I couldn’t remember how it started. The last clap dies down and then I remembered it.”
