The Jeff Foxworthy Show is the name of two short-lived television series starring comedian Jeff Foxworthy and based on Foxworthy's stand-up comedy routine. The show aired from September 12, 1995 to May 5, 1997.
The first series aired on ABC during the 1995-1996 season, but was cancelled after one season. NBC picked up the show for the following season, but it was again cancelled after one season. In the first series, thinking his routine was "too Southern" for a national network, they based his sitcom in Bloomington, Indiana.

When the show moved to NBC, in addition to the casting changes, the show's production changed. In the first series, the show was recorded on tape; the second season was shot on film. In the second series, the show was set in a fictitious town in Georgia, based on his hometown in the South, and the series was given a redesigned opening and theme.
Haley Joel Osment was the only other actor besides Foxworthy to make the move to NBC with the series, and Jeff's wife Karen was the only character that carried over with Jeff and Matt. Jonathan Lipnicki was added to the cast as the Foxworthys' other son Justin.
