Tonight fans of TLC were introduced to a new show called "Best Funeral Ever." This show aired as a special on TLC before but is now a series. On Dec. 2, Dallas News was able to talk to the undertaker and he wants everyone to know that this show is not fake.

The boss John Beckwith Jr. says that only about 100 out of 3,000 funerals a year are wild and crazy ones. They are willing to do different things with funerals though and a lot of places won't do all of this at their facility. Tonight fans saw a casket going down a bowling alley and people dressed up as breakfast food.

TLC came to him with the idea of the show because of his reputation. John says that you can't fake laughter and tears and that fans get to see what the camera catches with this show. He wants everyone to realize this is not just another fake reality show and it is real.

"Best Funeral Ever" airs on Monday nights on TLC. Please like my Facebook for the latest in entertainment news.
