Post The Orlando Jones Show?

In a somewhat unexpected turn of events, Reuters is reporting that the FX cable network plans to launch "The Orlando Jones Show" this coming June. Information on the show is seemingly non-existent at this point, but we'll be sure to keep you abreast of any new developments.

Thumbs Up

Can't wait. Orlando proves that "MADtv" can have cast members become big stars too

Awesome! Actually, I think that I read a longer article about this awhile back, let me see if I can dig it up.

FX huh? Sounds cool to me. Hopefully it'll do well with the ratings.

Heart why is it surprising?

"In a surprising turn of events"? I don't see what's so surprising. Just because Orlando wasn't a stand-out on MadTv doesn't discredit his ability to be funny. He's going to do just fine. And if you don't think Orlando can pull off starting trends, just remember, "7up yours!".

Default Re: why is it surprising?

Actually, that comment was in reference to Orlando's decision to take a cable show after playing several lead roles on the big screen. I don't doubt that he can pull this off -- I'd just like to see him doing bigger and better things.

Yeah, Orlando was so underrepresented on the show those first two seasons.. as were Debra and Artie (before he left mid-season I mean). But he was great. Remember that sketch from season one where he played that hunter that killed zoo animals? And the season two one where he claimed the couch farted? lmao!

Oh, I remember that sketch... Wasn't it a "Coffee and Dana" segment?

Hehehe... Gross-out humor can be really funny sometimes. Scatological humor was even funny on SNL several seasons ago. Of course, that's not the case now, but you have the memories.

--Reality Check

(Tovah: Oh now Belma baby-- I gotta ask yo' now: Did you make this Chocolate covered butter stick?

Belma: OOh, girl, you know I did. But I made it with that lightly salted butter. You know we do gotta watch our high blood.

Tovah: OOh, baby, this is so good I outtta bust 'ya in da head with a car engine!)

Reality Check: Dreamin' of Denzel Washington...

(my favorite Reality Check sketch)
