Nick at Nite has purchased the basic-cable-TV rights to the CW's Everybody Hates Chris.

The family sitcom, which is based on comedian Chris Rock's Brooklyn upbringing, will start airing on Nickelodeon's prime-time programming block in the fall of 2009, joining other such sitcoms as Home Improvement, George Lopez and Roseanne. I have to be honest: I've never seen Rock's sitcom, though I've heard great things from my TV-critic friends. Plus, I have faith in the taste of the folks over at Nickelodeon, who, over the years, have brought us reruns of The Facts of Life, Diff'rent Strokes, Mad About You, The Cosby Show, Murphy Brown, Family Ties, Growing Pains and Designing Women.

Which begs the question: Which current sitcom would you like to see on Nick at Nite? My vote: While it's technically not a sitcom, Brothers & Sisters packs more laughs into each one-hour episode than the average season of According to Jim. Your turn.... - Mickey O'Connor
