Alan Thick back on TV with REELZ show

TNS Published: November 27, 2016 4:00 AM

Alan Thicke will be back in the thick of things when he hosts "Entertainment Weekly Presents: '80s Stars -- Where are They Now?" (long enough title?) on REELZ starting Nov. 30.

Thicke, who starred in "Growing Pains" and hosted his own talk show, says he's done standup comedy too.

"But that's really not my background. It's one thing to be witty or clever or fast. It's another thing to have the rhythm that's involved in the art -- and I do consider it an art -- of standup comedy. Those guys succeed where the rest of us fail. I was very successful in daytime in Canada with a (talk) type show because of the ability to react, be light on my feet and have a quip and whatnot -- but not to have to score all the time yourself -- being able to share spotlight with your guests."
