Bob Saget Keeps Silent on Lori Loughlin’s College Admissions Scandal on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Bob Saget Keeps Silent on Lori Loughlin’s College Admissions Scandal on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

A scheduling coincidence nearly resulted in an uncomfortable interview on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” but Kimmel and guest Bob Saget pointedly avoided the biggest headline of the day.

Saget was already scheduled to appear on Kimmel’s show when news broke of Lori Loughlin’s alleged involvement in a national college admissions cheating scandal. And when the show began, Kimmel didn’t hesitate to address the subject in his opening monologue, spending several minutes on it.

“Loughlin would have gotten his daughters into USC through the rowing team, even though his daughter had never rowed a boat,” he said before showing a fake doctored photo of Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia, rowing on a lake. “How the school fell for these Photoshops, I don’t know.”

But when Saget sat down to chat with Kimmel, the conversation had nothing to do with the scandal.

Saget did, however, open up about her recent wedding, which several of her co-stars attended as guests.

“John Stamos, of course, was there just to try to show us that he was better looking” than the bride, Saget joked.

Saget and Loughlin’s names have been linked for more than three decades: The two began working together on “Full House” in 1987, and in 2016, they became co-stars again in the “Fuller House” reboot.

Loughlin turned herself in to the FBI on Wednesday.
