Trivia

Andy Berman, who plays Dennis, the bellhop, was a main character during the first season. However, the syndicated versions of this show remove his name and image from the opening credits, making him to appear as a recurring character. This is probably due to the fact that his character disappeared after season 1, and wasn't seen or mentioned afterward. See more »

An absolute WB classic!
23 July 2007 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

"THE JAMIE FOXX SHOW," in my opinion, is an absolute WB classic! I haven't seen every episode, but I still enjoyed it. It's hard to say which episode was my favorite. However, I think it was always funny when a mishap occurred. I always laughed at that. If you ask me, it was nice that all of the main characters had stayed with the show throughout its entire run. It seems that no one stays with a show throughout its entire run. Everyone always gave a good performance, the production design was spectacular, the costumes were well-designed, and the writing was always very strong. In conclusion, although it can currently be seen on BET in reruns, I hope you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
