"Everybody Hates Chris" -- well, not as much as they hate Joey...

I wonder what bar the execs at NBC spent all night at after learning Must See TV Thursday was wounded by -- of all networks -- UPN! Of course, UPN had "Everybody Hates Chris" by Chris Rock and Ali LeRoi, and all NBC had was the sorry excuse of a show called "Joey". I wonder how Fox feels as "Chris" -- the show they passed up on -- beat out "The O.C."

It's a very good show that worked almost perfectly right out of the gate. (Pilots are expected to be somewhat awkward, as everybody -- the writers, the actors, and eventually the viewers -- are just learning who their characters are.) I can only hope that the show can maintain itself at this level throughout the season.

Now, anyway, if you couldn't see the show (it did air against Survivor, after all), Google is streaming it until Thursday on Google Video.
