<EM>Everybody Hates Chris</EM> Everybody Hates Chris

Yeah, I think that one white kid likes him, but that's about it. And look at him now: Chris Rock, funniest person in America. Chris starts off seeming like a cool kid, unless those posters on his wall are his brother's  then I hate him. Anyway, I'm feeling all the shout-outs to the '80s (the good '80s). Let's just say the soundtrack for this pilot probably cost more than the narrator. But let's not get all emotional; I did laugh, and we have much to discuss....

I never laughed out loud, though, and it's not because I was annoyed about the title. And certainly not because I read that the show received a seal of approval from some Family Friendly Programming Forum. In other words, it was clean. Real clean. But funny and real. I'm afraid of Terry Crews' Papa Rock, but "Unplug that clock you can't tell time when you sleep" is funny forever. I hate to love Tichina Arnold's Mama Rock, even with her Most Valuable Quote: "I will slap the caps off your knees." I feel for Chris (Tyler James Williams), who had better learn to be funny at school. And how 'bout them racial walls, people? Chris is indeed giving us what we need more of: laughter about everything. For a family-friendly seal, they are really pushing it. About time. We need to laugh, y'all, and quit hating. Sorry. What I mean is, see, well, who honestly hasn't ever been "outblacked"? Man, that was funny. I sure hope most of these Chris stories are true.
