Chocolate News is pretty terrible. The sketches are often full of sad stereotypes and poor attempts at humor, and generally – there just isn’t much in the way of news. The show’s only 30 minutes – it only airs once a week – why can’t we get more of David Alan Grier in his element – delivering commentary on the actual news?
Vodpod videos no longer available.
I only watch the first two minutes of the show – cuz that’s where all the chewy goodness is. David Alan Grier is actually highly talented, and it kinda hurts to see him in some of the sketches [as previewed in commercials]. I hate to use the word, but, buffoonery comes to mind. I hold out hope that the show will progress into what I’d like it to be, but who knows? I’m one of the few who even watch.
I think there’s potential for the show to fill a real niche – were it to live up to the 2min intro. Maybe it’s still early days. Here’s hoping! [seems to be a lot of that going around…:)]
