Who IS John O’Hurley?

On Thanksgiving Day at noon, he’s the silver-haired host of The National Dog Show on NBC, a job he’s held for nine years. He’s also written a couple of dog tale-oriented books.

JOHN O’HURLEY podcast excerpt: “The head of NBC Sports gave me a call. I picked up the phone and he said, ‘Woof! Woof!’ And that’s how it started nine years ago.” 

And he’s been the host of the daily “Family Feud” game show.

Still can’t place him?

How about his amazing performance on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” in 2005?


Okay, okay, try this one on: John O’Hurley played Elaine’s boss, clothing catalog entrepreneur J Peterman, as a recurring character for several seasons on “Seinfeld.” The joke was that Peterman was based on a real person and a real company.

But what happened later was no joke: when the J Peterman Company bounced in and out of bankruptcy, it was the pretend Peterman – John O’Hurley – who stepped in as an angel investor to save the real Peterman.

True story, folks!
