Intelligent and heart warming

This is exactly the kind of show where writers and actors should receive high paying salaries and have the public behind it. All About The Andersons proves that you can be funny, strong, stern, tactful, hard, resourceful and loving all at the same time. The onslaught of half witted sitcom humor on TV this season is healed by the "Fosse-esque" slapstick that Anthony Anderson and seasoned vets Roz Ryan and John Amos apply to this seemingly real family that they have created for your and my enjoyment week after week. Kudos to Aimee and the young gem Damani. This is a show that could survive the long haul and is a definite TIVO weekly if your a night worker- lets hope The WB pays attention.

I think this will be canceled. It's never listed in the top 120 weekly(viewer wise), and I don't think the jokes are funny enough. I might laugh once, but its probably more of a chuckle. The cast is great, but it's wasted talent. I'm thinking this will be canceled sometime soon, but I don't know, because Whoopi was originally supposed to be canceled after tracy morgan, but it wasn't and got nominated for best new comedy for peoples choice awards. I'm confused. anyway, i wish this luck(thanks to the cast). but I'll only get on a kick of watching it if the jokes get funnier.

ALL ABOUT THE ANDERSONS- **1/2 out of ****

TV-PG: swearing.

well, it's okay but poor John Amos is wasting his talent. It's not as funny so I predict it'll be canceled for Fall 2004. I adore the cast but not enough funny stuff. Let's hope they have more to come...

Completely Whack

I got the chance to see the new family sitcom about a African-American family that adopts a white kid into their home--with hilarious results. This series wasn't funny to me and it will be cancelled very soon. This is a complete waste of good talent gone to the dogs here,and it shows. The only thing that is holding this comedy show up by the pants is no other than actress Holly Robinson-Peete,who is struggling here. But here was gets me........................

1. Who put actor Anthony Anderson here?

2. Whatever happened to actress Roz Ryan after her stint on "Amen"?

3. Why did it take network executives 28 years to find a good sitcom for actor John Amos? Reason? The last sitcom he starred in was Good Times as father figure James Evans---back in the mid-70's.
