    Did anyone watch his new show on CNN last night? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

    Jahari,
    I asked myself that same question, along with, why now? I didn’t watch the entire show, because I couldn’t take it. I was unable to appreciate his BLACK humor. Possibly due to the sensitive times we are in with this election. However, I’ve never been a fan of Hughley, because he seems to luck up when it comes to funny material. I came to that conclusion after watching one of his stand up performances, where I may have laughed twice.


    Bootzey,
    IOM… I believe it was a calculating decision to air his show during the election. I could be wrong, but the thought crossed my mind. So based on that, I think after the election CNN is going to hang Hughley out to dry. But, I could be wrong... did I said that already?:)


    Anyhooo, thanks you both for sharing your thoughts… its appreciate BIGTIME!:)

    Be Blessed!

    twas not funny...and no more informative than regular cnn...
    DL is only funny when he is cracking on people...
    if they wanted a black comedian to talk about politics they should have gotten
    chris rock imho...

    I saw his debut - wasnt amused, but thought "ok.. it's big time for him.. perhaps he is nervous" etc

    I also couldnt imagine what he was thinking hooking up with CNN, of all networks, and at election time. Puppeteering has never been so blatant. smh.

    I caught a little more earlier this week, surprised it was still running. DL is a B comedian. He is not an interviewer: you gotta know what's going on. He is not a host: A host sidekicks his own shows by bringing on the funny guys.. so why is he still there?

    This could make or break the man, but he's got to get off CNN.

    Stick a fork in me...

    cause I'm done! I gave it 3 episodes and can take no more!

    Zulile

    It does come across as if he feels he's out of his element.
    Who knows, perhaps he's watching playbacks and sees maybe
    it wasn't a good decision to take the gig.

    Sometimes we think we be looking good, til we walk pass a mirror...
    "dayum, what was I thinking when I put this ensemble together?"
    and then get the heck out of it! 'Cept bruthaman Hughley signed on
    the dotted line, now he has to ride the bumpy road to the finish.

    And like you said,

    Thanks for engaging yall!:)
