Everybody Hates Chris

Is anyone going to watch this? Will it be any good? It looks reasonably funny on the commercials

It's on UPN tonight, I think 8 PM ET

It looks really good...but it's on the same time as Survivor.

^I know there's a conflict with another show, but I have seen the ads for it and it does look funny, I'd like to watch. Maybe I should crank out the VCR........

I thought it was cute, not rolling on the floor laughing or anything. The father reminded me of how my father was w/ money so that was amusing I guess

I think it has some potential but it won't last unless it really improves.. get past stereotypical behavior, have more character development

Agreed. It has potential, but it needs to figure out exactly where it's going, and not try to get there too fast.

I thought it was very good. Loved the bit with the fight and Ebony and Ivory playing in the background. Hee!

UPN is where crummy shows end up.....
so for a show to have its premiere on UPN, they can't have high expectations for themselves...

I loved it. Yes, most of the characters need development, but c'mon, it was only the pilot. The "ghetto snob" mother and strong father already seemed quite developed for parents on a family sitcom.

And it was doing some slightly edgy stuff for a sitcom: The signs, Chris Rock's narration (loved that "He used the same excuse ten years later. And it worked!" line when he saw his friend kissing Ebony.) Chris being robbed while he was walking around in love. His dad thinking Chris is talking about the neighbor when Chris wanted to talk about Ebony ... lots of great stuff.

This is one of my favorite new shows of the season. The parents are firm, yet loving and the kids are real without any of the obnoxious precociousness that usually plagues kid actors. The young gentleman who plays Chris is a true find!
