  1. With elements of "Wonder Years," "Cosby" and the "The Jeffersons," but also a spirit all its own, "Chris" is a sitcom that finally makes the family funny again.
  2. 100
    Sweet but never treacly, nostalgic but never dishonest, startlingly frank about race and always painfully funny, Everybody Hates Chris is the sitcom for which the networks have been yearning for the better part of a decade.
  3. Much of the charm in this show, as well as the humor, comes from Rock's ability to vanquish political correctness in favor of a candid but affectionate look at the past.
  4. 90
    The kid is funny, the mom is funny, the dad is funny, the stories are funny, and Rock's voice-over is fantastic.
  5. [It has] a rich mix of sharp observant humor and a sure feel for the family dynamic.
  6. Should appeal to fans of Rock and to viewers who long for a family comedy reminiscent of "The Cosby Show" (albeit with a sharper edge).
  7. 50
    What's missing here are the big laughs, despite Rock's clever narration.

Great show the father is hilarious How ironic that everyboidy loves Raymond is hated by people but everybody hates Chris is loved by people.

Anyways great showi give it a 11 if i could but instead i gave it a 10. Expand

    Not very funny. On top of that, the script is full of rascism.
