    well i have own canada, and that show did not air, why do we always get ripped off?

    I watched the show last night & it wasn’t bad at all…. Since there really isn’t any drama’s on tv that feature more than 1 black person on tv anymore, i can understand why its doing so good. Back in the 70’s, 80,s 90,s they had a lot of black oriented comedies & drama’s. Tv should be for people of all races, not just one.

    Good show…I enjoy it. People complain about the acting but it is no worse than some of the other shows that is doing okay. I’m not so caught up in the acting because he has casts that have not been in the game for years, but the plot is what gets me and its been good. This has caught the eye of a lot of AAm who otherwise was not watching her network.
