Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Unamed Title Episode

    After some solid episodes, by season 6 standards this one was a bit off. Will tries to prove his worth by getting a dismissed juror from trial that Phillp is judge on Hilary's show. They find him at a barber shop. It was funny that the guy was going to charge Will extra because of the ears. They convince him to go on the show and well you guess things go. I did enjoy after the guest on Hilary's show said "Isn't that right Will Smith" and the camera pointed toward him. They try to apologize and yes same result. Eventually things come to a conclusion. Will's last apology is over the top and fits him.moreless
