    Has anybody else watched this show? What do you think?

    An old school style sitcom, about the Carmichael family.

    The show has only 6 episodes, but it hits some current issues such as the Black lives matters movement and gender identity, while maintaining comedy.

    My favorite part about the show is the parents played by Loretta Devine and David Alan Grier. They really make the show hilarious with their comedic timing. I hope this show gets renewed for a second season.

    I've watched a few episodes on Hulu. Its a cool show. Anything with Loretta Devine is usually pretty good. I recently saw the brother Lil Rel when he came to Ohio. He was funnier in person of course. I thought he was a little extra on the show but it was still definitely pretty funny.

    I wasn't expecting to like it, but Loretta Devine and DAG can do no wrong in my eyes. They make the show.

    I finally remember who this Carmichael guy is...

    I saw his HBO stand up special (directed by Spike Lee) that was pretty bad. Not the directing, the jokes. Super dull, pretentious and unfunny.

    Then he got to his "gay" section where he talked about gay marriage and dudes coming out of the closet...I just wasn't feeling him, not to mention he started the jokes on the premise that gay men are effeminate and that's their problem. I stopped watching it halfway through.

    I may give this show a chance, its been renewed for a second season...but I'm def not in a hurry now, lol

    Nick, he's definitely not the funny one in the show anyway.
    Like I can think of a moment where every other main character made me laugh. But him, I can't.

    i love the show, thought Carmichael isn't really funny, the other characters are what make the show funny and watchable. he has his moments but overall the rest of the cast is what draws my attention.

    Absolutely loved the show. Loretta Devine and David Allen Grier are truly the stand out cast members and the basis of the "funny" that's in the show. I love wholesome sitcoms like that. Cheesy, but in all the right ways.

    I just saw a preview about this show and decided to watch it when it came on.

    I'm somewhat disappointed by this because I know NBC could have done better. Jerrod Carmichael is not funny to me, not a good actor and should have let someone else play him in the show. Loretta and David Alan Greir are above this cast, imo, and i kinda hate seeing them with people who arent up to par with them. The ex-wife is great though.

    But comedic timing seems off at times, the writing is sketchy and Jerod really sucks. And I had to remind myseld i wasnt watching a tyler perry show sometimes.

    On a positive note, I like that they broached a good subject matter, and from what I 4ad about the show, they cover topics others won't.

    I just watched one episode. I will give it another shot. Loretta and David are awesome.
