The Scene: Sisters on The Small Screen

This week marked the debut of two new shows feature two fabulously funny women of Color! Monday marked the debut of the latest comedian to tackle a nighttime talk show, comedian Mo'Nique!

After successful hosting stints on the BET Awards, the cable network has dubbed Mo'Nique the "Queen of Late Night". Reviews have been mixed so far, which is to be expected since Mo'Nique's persona can be loud, outrageous, and larger than life. But it is definitely worth giving a shot.

Next up, comedian and "The View" co-host Sherri Shepherd debuted her new sitcom "Sherri". "'Sherri' centers around a newly single mom, paralegal and part-time comedienne/actress who tries to get back into the dating scene and move on with her life after divorcing her cheating husband. Sherri finds solace and support among her girlfriends at the office while juggling her hectic life." "Sherri" is in a sneak preview week on Lifetime this whole week at 7:00pm EST before moving to its regular time slot on Tuesdays at 10:00pm ET/PT.

Have you had a chance to check out either of these new shows? Do you think either of them will see a Season 2?

I did catch Mo'nique and was so happy to feel that energy she brings, people can say what they want but Mo'nique will keep it 150...real recognizes real and the haters can step tp Chelsea Lately but I am so glad to see there is something meatier on late night that contains humor and content I can relate to
Didn't get to catch Sheri but wish her the best just happy to see some of our sisters of size and color make moves and have opportunitites to be on the samll or big screen.
Times certainly have changed, we are seeing more and more shows geared towards us beautiful people of size although some may dispute that we are being utilized in a negative light but I believe that as with all things in it's early stages we have to overcome some bumps in the road but soon...more roles for us in and out of Hollywood where we are the leading lady, the love interest, the hero, the activist and NOT GIlBERT GRAPES mother!
