Cedric the Entertainer Gets His Own TV Show

The latest in a string of news involving networks snatching up pilots and pitches as the threat of a writers' strike looms, ABC has greenlit a comedy series with Cedric the Entertainer playing the lead. The untitled show will feature Cedric as "a man who has always been the proud breadwinner for his family and has difficulty adjusting when his wife's hobby turns into a multimillion-dollar enterprise."

It sounds like Cedric's vehicle will utilize similar humor as that in "King of Queens," with several "Queens" writers leading the project. Hollywood Reporter continues:

With the Cedric project, ABC also is returning to its roots of such multicamera domestic comedies as "Roseanne," "Home Improvement" and, most recently, "My Wife and Kids" and "According to Jim," which have worked well for the network.

I'm kind of looking forward to this because I actually enjoy Cedric the Entertainer sometimes. He got people to include "the Entertainer" with his name, for Pete's sake! I last saw him play a great supporting character in the Don Cheadle movie Talk to Me, so I think I'm ready for more of the Cedric.

Cedric, Cedric...I'm sorry but I am soo not a fan. Does any else remember his other failed sketch comedy show where he opened the show each night with a song. He gets the big L for Lame-o. His humor is funny to only my nana.

Oh good. Let's hope it's an actual sitcom instead of that lame variety act he sprang on us a few years back.
