NBC announced today that it renewed both Young Rock and Kenan for a second season.

“It has been a true joy to watch Dwayne Johnson & Kenan Thompson on NBC every week and see families connect with their relatable, entertaining and heartwarming stories,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Programming, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We’re thrilled to renew both of these shows for another season and can’t wait to see more from Dwayne, Kenan and the incredibly talented casts and producing teams behind each of them.”

It will be interesting to see what stages of DJ’s life they will take on next season. Although, I am biased for them keeping up with his life in college.

When it comes to Kenan, I can’t wait to see how they move forward after the season finale’s cliffhanger. I am assuming there will be a time jump that will take place. However, I could be wrong.

Either way, I am happy both sitcoms will be back.


The Rock says he’ll run for President if we want him to

The Rock has been teasing us that he will run for President of the United States for a few years. He even took it as far as his fictional future self running for the position on biocom Young Rock.

Therefore, Piplsay polled 30,138 people and asked them if he should run. 46% said yes, he should. When DJ saw that, he wrote, “Humbling 🙏🏾🤯. I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club – but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people 🙏🏾💪🏾🇺🇸 ”

Willie Geist wanted to hear the answer from the horse’s mouth, so he asked DJ during an interview for a future Sunday Today segment. “So I do have that goal to unite our country. And I also feel that if this is what the people want, then I will do that,” DJ told Geist. “But I am passionate about making sure that our country is united because a united country, as we know, is its strongest. And I want to see that for our country.”

If anyone can unite us, it is him. People on both sides of the political spectrum go to see his films. Therefore, they should both support him. He has my vote, and I will campaign for him as hard as I can. Mostly because I like him and partially because I can say I went to college with the President of the United States. It is much more admirable than saying I went to the same high school as Jared Kushner.


The Rock responds to 46% of people wanting him to run for President

The Rock has joked about running for President of the United States. The joke has gone as far as his fictional future self running for office on his NBC biocom Young Rock.

Well, Piplsay thinks it is such a good idea that they polled 30,138 people to see if they agreed. Did they? Almost half of the people who responded said yes.

Has this convinced DJ to give it a go? “Humbling 🙏🏾🤯,” he wrote. “I don’t think our Founding Fathers EVER envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy joining their club – but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve you, the people 🙏🏾💪🏾🇺🇸 ”

I hope DJ does it. He has my vote. Does he have yours?


Young Rock becomes an action star tonight
April 6th, 2021 under The Rock. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on NBC, Old Rock, who is running for President of the United States, is dealing with the repercussions of choosing his VP (Rosario Dawson) on Young Rock. He tells Randall Park he is always loyal to his partners in crime, and he started doing that during his days at the University of Miami.

Since his grades are down, the coach tells him he has to get an on-campus job if he wants to stay at UM. He gets a job checking the emergency phones on campus to make sure they all work.

His co-worker becomes his partner-in-crime. That is because Hopkins tells him they can spend the day watching action movies instead of working. Side note, DJ, says he is a fan of Sylvester Stallone to his friend. What neither of them mentioned is that Sly went to UM for a little while before he got kicked out.

Back to the show, one of the reasons why they are able to goof is because no one checks on their work. That is until now. There is a woman who is going to check all of the phones to make sure they work. If they don’t, then he will get kicked out of school like Stallone.

Therefore, he and Hopkins go on a mad dash to check all of the phones before she does. Can they do it?

You might ask, why do I know that factoid Stallone. That is because I went to UM with DJ. Therefore, I have a lot of problems with tonight’s episode because it is full of a lot of inaccuracies. Now, you won’t know that because you didn’t go to school with us. But I don’t know why DJ allowed it to be done this way. Things that are so simple to check and ask. They mention things that did not exist on our campus, like a quad. I mean, they did do a good job of finding a school in Australia that kind of looks like our college, but it wasn’t. And I get that. But I don’t get why they made such simple errors. But I am too close to the story.

Now, I have been close to other stories that have been adapted to a screen. For example, The Newsroom gave me flashbacks to my days at CNN, and it was traumatizing. Reliving a scandal that haunted the network was not easy. Aaron Sorkin did not work at CNN (I am so grateful he did not include our meeting at the news network on the show), but he did a better job with accuracy than DJ is doing with his show.

There I said it. I am sorry, DJ, I support you, but I cannot support this episode.

Has anyone else experienced this with a production that is based on a period of your life that you lived? Tell me how I can let it go.


Young Rock goes to the University of Miami tonight

Tonight at 8p on NBC, it is time for DJ (Uli Latukefu) to go to the University of Miami in Young Rock.

His freshman year starts off amazing, but then he runs into some trouble. That trouble gets him in even more trouble, and there is only one person who can get him out of it.

A lot has happened to DJ since we saw him at 15, and he gives us an update on all of it. He lets us know what is happening with his grandmother (Ana Tuisila) and his parents. How will his mom (Stacey Leilua) handle being away from her only baby? His dad (Joseph Lee Anderson), on the other hand, loves telling everyone who his son is.

Can he live up to his dad’s expectations? You have to watch an episode that shows the transformation of Little Dewey into DJ the man.

I was looking forward to this episode because I also went to UM. It didn’t disappoint, and it brought back some nice memories. UM was good to me and The Rock, just like Young Rock is good to us.

When you are done watching Young Rock, stick around for Kenan at 8:30p.
