In "The French Take Woodland," Jacques Chirac calls a poker hand with three 9s and two queens a full house, "queens over nines"; similarly, Robert Evans calls a hand with three 9s and two kings "kings over nines." In proper poker terminology, the three of a kind is "over" the two of a kind. Therefore, the two hands described should be called "nines over queens" and "nines over kings." See more »

So of course, I expect it to be cancelled, and am taping episodes already. I have been a loooong time fan of Law and Order, and rarely miss a show, but I have blown it off for Kid Notorious.
This show is bold and daring and that's one reason I love it. They aren't afraid to make fun of anyone--actresses, agents, singers, rappers. Maybe their "peeps" have put out the bad press.
One naysayer on IMDB praised the unfunny Crank Yankers. Well, what can I say to that? "A chacun son gout." So don't spoil this for us.
Several people said that it has inside jokes. I DISAGREE! Who needs to be a Hollywood insider to know that Hollywood churns out garbage because of agent-engineered deals and box-office perception? Who needs to be a Hollywood insider to know that actresses have everything lifted and tucked and collagened? Or that said actresses drop and pick up projects on a whim? Aren't such stories the entire contents of People Magazine and Entertainment Weekly?
In the first episode, the "mafia" come after Kid to get back their investment in a movie. He reinvests it in a musical version of The Godfather, featuring rappers Kid meets in jail. Who doesn't know that turning perfectly good movies into musicals is the rage these days, or that these adaptations are sometimes ridiculous? Isn't the idea of The Godfather as a musical with rappers funny? I think it's hilarious. Maybe you just have to really enjoy movies, or maybe you have to have a good sense of irony.
One person mentioned a joke, "This is one of the most remote villages in the world...hey, look, I got full bars on my cell phone!" Now, what's wrong with that? It's exactly the type of joke you'd find on The Simpsons, about the omnipresence of technology and/or the importance people place on having it that way.
I laughed at this show as much as a good Simpons episode (unfortunately, not as frequent as they used to be). It's a really funny show. It makes me laugh out loud. The pacing is fast and the jokes are funny. I hope it makes it to syndication.
I know that network tv listens to the whims of viewers, but Comedy Central usually knows better.
