    So basically it’s a reboot of The Steve Harvey Show.

    I did not like when this man would sing a tune on The Office, so I’m a bit doubtful. Hopefully a great supporting cast can back up the already talented Robinson.

    I’ve actually been very excited about this pilot, so this is great! I hope it doesn’t put either Community or Parks & Rec in jeopardy, but it most likely will. Still, I’m excited to see this!

    Really don’t like him. His OFFICE character was annoying and mean.
