Everybody Won't Hate Chris

"Everybody Hates Chris," the fall's best new comedy, premieres tonight on TV's least-watched broadcast network (8 p.m., UPN, Channel 38). Chris Rock has turned his childhood memories about attending an all-white high school into a funny and sweet (believe that!) "Wonder Years"-style comedy about an African-American family in the early 1980s. The writing is great, and so is the acting. On any other network, this would be a Top 20 hit. But not any other broadcast network would let this show use the "N" word?

New tonight
One to watch, and one to skip: Mandy Patinkin stars in "Criminal Minds, another police procedural on CBS (10 p.m., Channel 12). But don't bother with "Love, Inc." an unwatchable dating service comedy on UPN (9:30 p.m., Channel 38).

Back tonight are "CSI," a one-hour "Joey," "The Apprentice," "ER" and "Cuts."

Better late than never on this topic... I don't hate Chris, I love Chris. I was curious how this show would hold up. So far each episode is as good as the last.

It seems to me that the language hasn't been as harsh as it was in the pilot. Either that or I'm just getting numb to it...
