To say that House of Buggin' was an In Living Color rip-off is ridiculous. To go that far, then you'd have to say that In Living Color is/was a rip-off of Saturday Night Live and SCTV. Just because In Living Color was a show made by minorities (which I, myself, am), that doesn't make the idea of their show any more original. Saturday Night Live is mostly watched by whites, In Living Color was mostly watched by blacks, and House of Buggin' was mostly watched by Latinos. Simple. To say it was a rip-off of ILC is just pure ignorance.
Latinos needed a show like this since all you see on TV are Caucasian and Black television shows. And even though there aren't a whole lot of Black television shows, there's still more than what Latinos have. John Leguizamo is a comedic genius, and his timing is well planned and methodical. He's a versatile actor, so he can do both comedy and drama. The same can't be said about the Wayans brothers who are excellent with comedy, just not drama (although we haven't seen them do drama, really).
Anyway, I thought it was a great show and should have lasted longer. Like someone said in another comment, the show wasn't advertised in many cities and it wasn't advertised as much as In Living Color was. Comedy Central should dish out the money and pick up the episodes. I'd definitely watch those again!
