for once can hollywood put attractive full-black women on tv and movies!!! i know for a fact theres some beautiful sistas the industry can find out here. if the likes of lela rochon, robin givens, teresa randle, alysia rogers and aj johnson can be on tv back in the 90'sand look gorgeous,then im sure the PTB can find more chocolate dimes to be in hollywood. but i also notice how when they hit it big with be lusted after by non-black men they started casting them with more roles with them as well,oh i forgot they became competition to the standard european beauty thats pushed all over the world starting here.

I can't stand this ho nicy nash or whatever this ho's name is, after how she ambushed gary coleman I have had this ho on *side eye* status every since, but I like cedric he's funny as hell I might watch. why can't Martin Lawrence get a show? they got all them damn useless, talentless hacks and even though they recently canceled 17 of those idiotic ass yt shows, its still too many of them on. I can't believe those ho's canceled CSI Miami now I won't here david caruso and his killer one liners. that was the only show that did not deserve the chopping block and I need Martin to get a damn show!! he would also make a great ensemble to this cast.

No. You don't bring something as serious as the Church into a comedy sequence it just doesn't work with they use a similar concept using a Synagogue and a Rabbi? No. Spirituality is not meant for comedy.

Cedric ..he's all right. With his wanna be proper ass.

I might watch the show to see if it's good or not.

@1:42pm

Haven't you heard of the 1980s sitcom, Amen? It was a comedy show centered around a deacon, his daughter, a young preacher, and a few members of the church.

I Do My Thing In Action said...

Ced is still one of the funniest cats out there. And Niecy Nash is sexy as hell to me. I'll definitely be giving it a look. I hope it does well.

Bee Gee said...

Only problem I have wit Ced is the nigga switch character several times in the movie. Anybody that watched that Johnson Family Vacation bullshit feel me. One minute this nigga would be talkin' like Theo Huxtible, the next like DayDay. wtf

----------------------------------------
They're lucky if this show is half as funny as Amen was. I'm rooting for them, though. I like Niecy Nash and Cedric the Entertainer and so does white America, so we'll see..

Bee Gee do you have to use the "N" word in every one of your post! You comment like an intelligent dude but please baby! The N word makes me forget everthing you may be trying to say! I know your followers will give me hell for this but! I ain't trying to start a beef wit cha! I'm just saying sweetie!

You ever met him? how about some positivity or keep it pushin'? life going that bad for you? so fuck it shit on everything and every one, check yourselves. You a demon on this earth or angel? which side cuz sounds like most of y'all are full of hate for a stranger. for real?!

People keep asking why Martin can't get a show. Love That Girl on TVOne was his show and it was awful. I watched it to support it but it wasn't good at all. I think people want another Martin (the show) but I doubt that can be redone.

ON TOPIC: I like Cedric the Entertainer. I'll watch.

That game show Cedric did was awful! Hopefully he can shine with this sitcom!

@5:35 you are so ignorant! I also hate the N word! I respect BeeGee for not getting cocky with the commenter! Grow up and stop acting like you're mom and dad! This generation is going to dissolve quickly from assholes like yourself!

Dude on the left's still a cutie. Nice to see him in something again. Was he in Sister Sister, Moesha or both? Is he the one that said to Tia and Tamera, "once you walk out that door don't come back no mo?". I'm sure it's him. I like Ceddie and Neicey Nash too.

To the commentor up top, the only person in this post filled with hatred. Is Nubians dumb non spell checking ass.

LMAO! I was going to post a simple, "huh?", but yours is more accurate. Add 8:31 to that, because it seems to be a contradicting post. Anywho...
Cedric's my home boy, and he's funny as hell. However, this proper accent has got to go. He's funny as himself. Someone mentioned Johnson Family Vacation. Gawd aweful movie, but he was funny as hell as Uncle Earl! And remember the cafeteria lady? Hilarious.
Niecy Nash. Another STL home girl. I like her. She needs to stop trying to look so European though. Can't hide those ethnic features, girl. May as well play it up.

Co-sign. That show was TERRIBLE. I'll keep watching 'Martin' re-runs when I can catch them.

@9:43
How exactly is Niecy trying to look European? The weave? If that's the case, many black women are also guilty.

Anonymous said...

Yes, I also peeped the cutie pie on the left. He's been fine for a long time.

Neicy shole do know how to keep a damn job! This bish got mo shyt goin on! Ain't mad atchu girl! This mess prolly gone get canceled but Niecy will cash them cheques!!! #tisall #sipstea

Mmmm. I always love seeing Wesley Jonathan

Anonymous said...

I stand corrected it was Flex Alexander who said the "walk out the do" line on Sister Sister not Wesley Jonathan. Wesley's still a cutie though. Anyhoo, whatever happened to Flex? I miss One on One.

@1:13pm & 9:43pm... shut up!!! for what cause you damn sure didn't make a point and i wouldn't be surprise if you 1:13pm was co-signing yourself. however neicy is a sellout coon who co signs for whitey after dissing gary coleman like that i was saw what time it was on her part,play along to get along, is something i wouldn't stand for i don't care what your color is,a spades a spade,call that ish out for what it is. as for the comment about black women 12:29pm made i co-sign to the tenth power cause neither one of these broads on the sitcom is pretty or average looking and mainstream hollywood don't want competition for their european standard of beauty.

Anonymous said...

@1:33pm...nubian, after what neicy did to gary i no longer like her, that was foul. along with anyone white she'll diss any black their dissing and praise who they praise,mainly someone white,her ass kissing is what got her to where she is. i don't give a damn who signs my check, anyone who deserves to be put on blast wouldn't get a pass from me,no matter the skin color.

Martin has his own live studio audience show in production with a Major network....and by MAJOR I don't mean TVLand. Big ups to Ced though, one of the main reasons why The Steve Harvey show was worth watching.
