BET Adds Jamie Foxx Show, Wayans Bros. and In Living Color

Besides The Parkers and Girlfriends, BET is not showing any sitcoms at all. In the past they have aired so many good series, such as 227, Amen, What's Happening!!, Thea and even Sanford. Looks like they are going to get back on the right track this fall. They have finally released their fall line-up, and it will include sitcoms The Wayans Bros.,The Jamie Foxx Show and the sketch comedy In Living Color. All three series have not aired recently, but all have started to come out on DVD. Foxx will air in the mornings and a full hour at midnight. Wayans Bros. will just air in the mornings while In Living Color gets the post-primetime slot in the 11 p.m. hour. To view their fall line-up, which starts October 3, click here.

While this is excellent news, we hope they add more and be more like TV One. Some black sitcoms that I can think of that need some airtime include Gimme a Break (Nell Carter) and Webster (Emmanuel Lewis).
