Did anyone else catch the series premier of the Chocolate News? I was blown away by how bad this show was. The opening monologue showed a tiny bit of promise, in that I agreed with it, but it wasn’t funny. Who thought it was a good idea to open with a [very unfunny] skit about Maya Angelou? Don’t open your show with a skit about a woman most of your target audience has probably never heard of.
The acting was bad.
The character of “DAG” has nothing going for him.
The Rodney King riots? The east coast/west coast feud? Come on, can you get a little more irrelevant? Someone who is a senior in high school now was one year old when the LA riots happened. ONE. He might not have ever even heard of them.
The “N-word Peace Treaty” was a very cheap knockoff of Chappelle’s “Racial Draft”.
David Allen Greer was on Howard Stern yesterday and they were saying the show got great reviews, but I’m finding that hard to believe. I’m going to have to look for those reviews now.
What a horrible show.
