The Carmichael Show

The Carmichael Show is NBCís follow to the ill-fated Mr. Robinson. Like itís predecessor, NBC is kicking out 2 episodes a week, I guess to Ďfití it in to a summer schedule. The Carmichael Show is different than the Mr. Robinson, but that does not make it better. Itís a little better than Mr. Robinson, but that is not saying much.

Carmichael felt like it was trying too hard and being preachy. There is a lot of similarities to the 70ís All In The Family. Except, times have changed and I donít think audiences find that kind of humor appealing any moreÖ or least in a sitcom. I really didnít care to much for the characters. I love David Allen Greer and he always cracks me up. He did fine here and actually I think the show was material beneath is usual good stuff.

While the show gets into some edgy material with politics, religion, racisim and other meaty subjects, itís just shotguníd and hope something sticks. Unfortunately the comedy revolves around the subjects while trying to maintaining balance for the audiences
