Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, and Dana Carvey Watch 20-Year-Old Home Improvement Promo That Shows Why Their Show That Followed It Failed

Too Funny to Fail: The Life & Death of The Dana Carvey Show” is a Hulu original documentary featuring the creators, cast, and executives recounting the strange history of “The Dana Carvey Show”. The show brought together a group of future comedy giants before they became giants, which included Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, and Bill Hader. In the documentary, these comedians recount their time on “The Dana Carvey Show” by exploring the show’s creation, which came from the minds of two Saturday Night Live alum.

In this clip from the documentary, Carell, Colbert, and Carvey watch the 20-year-old “Home Improvement” promo that was a prime example of why “The Dana Carvey Show” failed in just one season. The “Home Improvement” promo featured a special episode which was expected to make every TV household cry, until it was juxtaposed with and ad for “The Diet Mug Root Beer Dana Carvey Show”. “Home Improvement” was a family show that parents could watch with their kids, which is partly why Carvey’s sketch show failed in the time slot. The cast and creators of the show explore this and other failures in the Hulu documentary.

"Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.
