Are We There Yet? coming to TBS, and bringing Terry Crews with it

Terry CrewsTBS started the 100-episode order with the Tyler Perry family of sitcoms. And now they're at it again with a similar offer on the table for a television adaptation of Ice Cube's film Are We There Yet? Even better, they've nabbed Everybody Hates Chris' Terry Crews to play Nick, the role Ice Cube played in the film and its sequel.

Crews was always the funniest character on Everybody Hates Chris, and seeing him as the fish out of water marrying into an instant family should give him plenty of opportunity for laughs. It's nice to see that shows featuring predominantly African American casts are still being developed somewhere since they've left network television completely now with the cancellation of The CW's comedies.

With a ten episode commitment to start and that crazy back 90 order pending ratings, I have a good feeling that TBS might just have another Perry-sized hit on its hands. Who knew that when the networks gave up on family sitcoms, TBS would be there to pick up the baton.

I loved Crews as "President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho", porn super-star and five-time ultimate smackdown wrestling champion!
