Thus ends my Everybody Hates Chris reviews

everybody hates chrisMy reviews of Everybody Hates Chris didn't garner many responses, though that never bothered me much. It's a smart and funny show and I was happy to write about it every week, even if it didn't get the recognition shared by your Ugly Bettys, My Name is Earls and other comedies from the big networks.

Unfortunately, I have to stop reviewing the show, because we're not allowed to write about black people on this blog -- I'm kidding! Really, that was a joke. Actually, the honest to goodness reason I can't write about Everybody Hates Chris is that the CW has been removed from my cable lineup because of some corporate nonsense I don't fully understand, nor do I plan to understand it because I only care about the shows themselves, not whatever bureaucratic B.S. is keeping the CW off my TV.

Usually when I stop reviewing a show it's because I've grown tired of it or I feel I've said all that can be said about the show. This is the first time a show has actually been "taken" from me. I imagine this is what it's like to have your own child kidnapped -- and then later returned alive and well with a note on their sleeve telling you can't watch the CW anymore.

Anyway, it was fun while it lasted, but like all good things, this one had to end. Thanks for reading my reviews, and here's hoping Everybody Hates Chris keeps going so I can continue not reviewing it for many seasons to come.

This show started with a lot of noise but the change in network and the sloppy shift to Monday but a encore showing Sunday nites before the 7pm start time was not advertised. The CW has been a mess all season and I'm not surprised it's being dumped by yhe carriers. Enjoyed your comments, reviews and wish you well.

Great.

Yet another show you guys won't review.

Soon, it's just gonna be Idol updates by semi-literate ex-contestants and non-articles (see 24 spoiler posting below).

Thanks for making my visit to TVSquad more & more unnecessary.

Lets go two miles up the street to Sinclair Broadcasting HQ. It is still on Comcast over here in Baltimore. There was a dispute because Sinclair wanted to be paid by Comcast to redistribute the feed.

Sorry that you lost the CW, Adam. But don't confuse comments with readership. I don't comment as much as I used to, but I still read everything. :-)

It seems like you have a lot of pretty obvious solutions to your crappy cable company. Is there another reason you don't want to do the reviews anymore...?

Can't you pick up the CW with rabbit ears?

Well that too, but cable companies screwing people over isn't anything new. The CW is new and you would think would have had made agreements to have the channel shown.

But yeah, both suck.
