Small Fortune

NBC’s ‘Small Fortune’ and a Big Mistake

Now of course this whole set up is pretty silly, but so is The Masked Singer and that is still a lot of fun to watch. Small Fortune is about as much fun as it is to watch someone else play pinball.

The cast of "Kenan"

Kenan Thompson is Funnier than His Show

Now given his own show, his humor is even more subtle. At least in the pilot episode. That might have more to do with the fact that his character is still grieving the death of his wife. It’s hard to make that type of character funny. But I’m not convinced that the show is playing to Thompson’s strengths.

Young Rock

‘Young Rock’ is Self-Indulgent in a Good Way

Imagine the meeting with NBC execs telling Dwayne Johnson that they want to make a sitcom based on his life. I’m sure his response was a simple, “Okay” with that toothy grin of his. Or better yet. He proposed the idea to them! Either way, Young Rock is another self-indulgent project featuring the former wrestling star. This would be really annoying if he wasn’t just so likeable.
