Well That Was Quick -- Netflix cancels Jamie Foxx's sitcom
 

 
Well That Was Quick. I watched only the first episode and had to turn it off. Hopefully he got a bag off it...

Netflix, in its merciful benevolence, has finally granted the desperate, exclamation-point-capped pleas of Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! Which is to say that the streaming giant has pulled the plug on the single-season sitcom, which starred Genuine Movie Star and Certified Oscar Winner Jamie Foxx, returning to the TV comedy roots that helped jump-start his career. Per Deadline, the series was based on Foxx’s own relationship with his daughter, Corinne; both Foxxes produced on the series, which co-starred Kyla-Drew as the embarrassed daughter-proxy in question.

Netflix aired all eight of Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!’s extant episodes—which, we feel perversely motivated to note, are all named things like “#YeezysAndShrimp” and “#n*pplesOrNuts”—back in April of 2021. Said episodes introduced the world to Brian Dixon, a perfectly relatable cosmetics company owner who just happens to look and sound a great deal like Certified Oscar Winner Jamie Foxx. (Not that Foxx confined himself to this single role; he also played a series of one-off characters with names like Rev. Sweet Tea and Cadillac Calvin.) The series co-starred sitcom royalty David Alan Grier as Foxx’s father, plus Porscha Coleman, Jonathan Kite, and Heather Hemmens

Truth. I don't even get into Mike Epps like that, but watched one episode which turned into a four hour binge. I was surprised how well that concept worked, especially considering the cast. They all get props from me.

I feel like it was too expensive for them or Jamie wanted more money or something. My daughters watched the show and it was consistently on Netflix top 10 and top 10 shows like it’s first month.

n*gga laugh tracks were always FOR n*ggas with short attention spans. it's literally to direct the viewer on when to laugh.

stop yelling at clouds
