    Fine tuning meaning tuning out the host!!

    By nikkip37, Feb 25, 2008

    I would love to give this show a higher rating but due to the racial comments made by the host of the show I can not allow myself to do so. I would give the show an 8.5 but I will give the host a 3. Comments like real women are usually black women don't sit to well with me as a real caucasion woman. I rate hime higher than I should considering the fact he may just be an ignorant man with double standards when it comes to racial related views. It's unfair for me to not fully be able to enjoy a show I like because of the deaf ear people tend the have when racial comments are coming from the other direction.moreless

    Black Entertainment culture...live and uncut, on stage.

    Is it any wonder that this show began televising in 1987? The dawn of the New Jack Era? It makes sense and completely figures. It is great that TV One has added this show to its lineup in a syndicated fashion, however it should seriously consider making this available via DVD instead. Some amazing performances are available on this show...which are always live. It would be great to see the New Kids On The Block perform here, as it was great to see Jodeci, Guy, Al B. Sure and LL Cool J rock this stage during the New Jack Era. Vanessa Williams, Sinbad, Steve Harvey, and others have all had hosting duties. This is Black Entertainment culture...the African-American variety, on stage. Live and uncut.moreless
