Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance concludes tonight, and Steve says he’s not sorry.
Tonight, FOX’s drawn-out practical joke of a series My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance concludes tonight at 9 p.m. ET. The big fat obnoxious fiance himself plays off the pain he caused. Steve tells TV Guide, “We put the Coys through a lot, and I certainly felt guilty at times, but it is a practical joke!” If that excuse doesn’t work for you, he adds, “[Regardless of] them being sweet people or not, if it’s all within the framework of a practical joke, I didn’t feel as bad about it as you might imagine.” Right before his show concludes, the two-part series The Littlest Groom concludes at 8 p.m.
