Aliens are coming, good news for Chris?

A new pilot called Aliens in America has been picked up by what will soon be known as the CW. The comedy will focus on a shy nerdy kid living in a small Wisconsin town whose mother invites an exchange student to live with the family. The mother hopes the new friend will help her son become more popular, but the exchange student turns out to be Muslim. Sounds like another wacky comedy about cultural differences. Right now there's just not enough information to get me too excited about this show, but who knows, it could be good. The best news to come from this, however, is that the show is being described as a possible companion to Everybody Hates Chris, meaning Chris Rock's sitcom may actually make the transition to the CW after all. Very cool, says I.
