Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Christine loves Red Lobster. She's been working the early morning shift at the gym, so her body clock is off. She's been going to bed too early, so she gets Matthew to let her tad along to a party. Meanwhile Big and Little Ritchie try to bond.moreless

    This episode had more "laugh-out-loud" moments than any other episode I've seen! I think the writers are finally finding their stride. They also need to use Wanda Sykes more. She can be funnier than the lines they give her. Her performance has been great so far, but it could even do more to improve the show. I think this show has HUGE potential to be hilarious one day. It would also help to add more supporting characters i.e., Christine's mother, or another sister perhaps. Big Ritchie has gotten funnier. Maybe they should go out even further on a limb and allow Blair Underwood's character and Christine's to go on an actual date.moreless

      Matthew: Well, most of it happened after 9:00PM, so you were in bed.
