Chris Rock Ending “Everybody Hates Chris”

Chris Rock is ending Everybody Hates Chris, but not because of cancellation:

Funnyman CHRIS ROCK is planning to end the TV show based on his early life after four seasons. Everybody Hates Chris hasn’t been picked up for a fifth season and the comedian plans to make it easy for bosses at America’s CW network by ending the current season with a fitting finale….…Actor Terry Crews, who plays Rock’s dad in the series, says, “Chris Rock didn’t graduate high school and started comedy when he was, like, 17 years old. Our Chris (Tyler James Williams) is now a sophomore in high school, so the timing is lining up pretty well. Once he becomes a comedian, the show’s over.” And Williams, who is currently pursuing a film course at New York University, admits he’s happy with the ending of the show, which is unofficially planned for 8 May (09). He tells TV Guide magazine, “An envelope arrives (with his high-school equivalency results), but before we find out the results, we fade to black. If it ends here, we ended it the right way.” Rock agrees: “It might not be a bad way to go.”

The show’s been a pretty good example for the black community. Nice mix of comedy and culture. We’re just thankful the show will end on it’s own terms and not by the demands of those damn executives.

    @ hater
    he wasn’t showing poor black people he was showing a hard working black family and the struggles they went through growing uo in the “hood”. My family was like that we lived in coney island projects but my moms was a teacher and my pops worked for con-ed. they work their asses off to get us out of the hood. i think this show was great and it was dead on with a lot of things! too bad but I really wont miss it that much

  • http://www.bossip.com Toucheaway

    What a show! I loved the depiction of a family headed by a hard working black man and an idealistic and hard working black woman, because that’s how I grew up. They weren’t poor, they were hard working people. I’m going to miss it.

    there’s nothing wrong with that.

    there’s poor family’s all over, but what counts are the laughs, the love, & the hugs to get you through.

    dope show…def one of the best “black shows” in a while.

    a nice brake from the senseless bafoon-croonery.

  • shaunie

    Hate to see the show go but all good things must come to an end.

  • bet

    I loved the show and I am really going to miss it. The CW has no idea what to do with a Black oriented show. They threw away Half and Half, Girlfriends, and now The Game in on the line. Black oriented shows need to be on the major networks, CBS, ABC and NBC in order to get a wider viewership. The CW just uses the Black shows for the built in audience. They use the hell out of us and I am tired of it.

    I hate the CW. Ever since the merger of WB and UPN all the good black shows have been taken off the air. All of us, Half and Half, Girlfriends, One on One( which was during a great season finale when Brianna and Ray J had slept together I really wanted to know what was going to happen) I swear if they take of The Game I would go crazy!!!! I love Derwin Davis. The so called “white shows” are stupid azz hell but seem to keep coming back every season. They are all the same about a group of rich, snobby, coked up brats. And what the hell is up with that stupid show Reaper. A waste of a good time slot…

  • neutralparty

    well if it’s not reality tv people aren’t interested

  • Hotstuff

    I love this show. And they weren’t a poor family nor rich, they were a middle class homeowning family

  • ~`* MISS TOYA *`~

    i love this show… perfect example of a hardworking black family! Hate to see it go!!

  • Its6amHoGetOut, I dont hate people from the deep south, you can tell from my post's, what i hate are stereotypical, ignorant ass, bama, uneducated, unemployed, fat, nappy weave wearin' stretchmarked, fat toe'd nothing bitches. Respond if you one of them.

    Shame on all you people who supported that UPN (united plantation network)every show on there was shitty.

  • Small Fries

    DAM! DAM! DAM!

  • CF98

    I for one enjoyed Everybody Hates Chris and hate to see it go but considering it is based on his RL it makes sense for it to end now. I’ll miss Chris/Greg’s friendship especially. Despite Chris being black and Greg being white their friendship was believable and I’ll miss it.

    I’m just relieved its getting a finale.
