Even Jamie Foxx can’t get a show to a second season Netflix

Jamie Foxx thinks he is indestructible, but he is not. That is because Netflix decided to cancel his show Dad Stop Embarrassing Me after just one season.

I had high hopes for the sitcom because it also starred his In Living Color castmate David Alan Grier. However, the latter was not enough to save the forgettable show.

It is so forgettable that I binged it, and I honestly cannot remember anything about it. Except that Foxx was up to his old schtick, and it doesn’t work in 2021.

Let’s be honest; we are all so over awards shows. They are all the same thing; they leave us disappointed. However, there is one that won’t do that. What is this award show that will leave all of the nominees happy?

“BREAKING NEWS: Actor, comedian David Alan Grier has created an annual acting award called The David to awarded to himself for his best work done by himself Trophy.”

He has my vote because he was the best part of Dad Stop Embarrassing Me on Netflix. Not only does he deserve The David, but the statuette is also perfect for him. He can proudly display will all of his other awards.

Before David Alan Grier was retired in The Cool Kids, he was in the military craving Burger King. He looks the same now as he did when he was 32 in that 1989 commercial.

Before David Alan Grier taught his sons how to be Black on The Carmichael Show, he had to learn to be Black in Beer. How funny was the 28-year-old actor in that 1985 movie?


David Alan Grier plays Jamie Foxx’s dad in Dad Stop Embarrassing Me

Back in 1991, Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier worked together on In Living Color. Now 30 years later, they are reuniting on Netflix’s Dad Stop Embarrassing Me.

Instead of playing equals as they did on the sketch show, this time around, Grier is playing Foxx’s dad on the sitcom. I would love to know how that phone call went. Did Foxx call him and say, “Dude, I have the perfect role for you on my new show.” Then he told him what it was. Grier was like, that won’t be believable, so Foxx told him to grow a big bushy grey beard. Do you think it worked?

The sitcom is not just about them. Foxx plays a successful businessman and bachelor who suddenly becomes a full-time dad to his daughter Sasha (Kyla-Drew). He is going to need all the help he can get, and he will get that from his dad and sister (Porscha Coleman). But who is going to help Sasha adjust to all of them?

We will just have to tune into Netflix on April 14th to find out. I don’t know about you, but I will be watching because that trailer had me laughing out loud.
