    Sherri is so desperate for a career, she is in that 'YES!' mode to absolutely anything people float past her. The horrible decision to take on this sitcom may cost her dearly. Any entity considering her for star roles will most certainly see this show and second-think their use of her. While she does as so many black comedians do, exaggerate the blackness for comedic inflection Sherri is so desperate for a career, she is in that 'YES!' mode to absolutely anything people float past her. The horrible decision to take on this sitcom may cost her dearly. Any entity considering her for star roles will most certainly see this show and second-think their use of her. While she does as so many black comedians do, exaggerate the blackness for comedic inflection (a staple of sitcoms ever since the phrase "what choo talkin bout Willis?!" was uttered in the 80's) she shows little comedic timing beyond that 'character' voice she uses when trying (desperately) to be funny. Even when she is dancing around Hot Topics on The View, she turns to her inner-city tone and accent in order to deliver a cheap laugh when needed. Her normal persona is actually quite well-spoken and articulate, but she seems intent on suppressing that side of her. Trust me sistuh, there ain't no room in Hollywood for anothu silly sistuh! We gots those ever-where. Be yo self girl!! Expand

    I would give this show a 10 - only because Poker Face by Lady Gaga was in it. But i can't go for that, so i will give the show a 9 - cause it was HI- LARIOUS.

    A ridiculous attempt at mainstream sitcoms; and that's saying a mouthful when you consider the quality of mainstream sitcoms, or lack thereof. Sherri Shepherd is painful to watch as she attempt to deliver sassy one-line 'zingers' in hopes of eliciting side-aching belly laughs from what the show's producers expect to be wide-eyed, adoring female viewers.

It's a swing and a miss and sadly I can't even recommend a "check it out for yourself" suggestion. Expand

    The show is too close to a comedy routine to be successful, although future episodes may feel less practiced. But whether or not the show makes it, one thing is clear: Sherri Shepherd is a star. An original.
  2. Shepherd is appealing and rattles off a few good zingers. But viewers will find more wit and spark during The View's ''Hot Topics'' than in this generic comedy.
  3. Sherri is a slip of a comedy, an appetizer yearning to be the main course.
