Wanda Sykes Gets Talk Show

Bout damn time. Wanda is funny ya'll. I'm talking about milk coming out your nose kinda funny. I love a girl that calls it like she sees it (and the way she sees it is always right). In a recent press release, the official announcement finally came. Wanda's show will premiere on November 7 at 11:00 PM. The show will air every Saturday night at 11:00 PM on Fox. I can't wait. I guess that means MadTV is being cancelled. Oh well - they haven't been funny since Deborah Wilson left the show.

I'm so excited about Wanda Sykes getting a show. Her's is a voice that is needed on television right now. She speaks what many of us are feeling. Even though the show may only air once a week, it makes me excited about watching TV again. Lord knows I don't have a reason to watch it right now (well I do have Real Life Housewives of Atlanta - that's the bomb).

Wanda, I am wishing you much luck on your new show. I will be tuned in every Saturday night to see you. I want to say thank you for being the funny lady that you are. Thank you for making me laugh so hard that I shed a few tears. Thank you for bringing awareness to gay bullying and namecalling. Thank you for coming out and representing the black LGBT community so well. You are an inspiration to many.

But before I go, let me recap. We got a Black U.S. President. We got a Hispanic woman on the Supreme Court. Now we have a black lesbian with her own TV show. Child, we done overcome and somebody forgot to tell me. America - go head with your self.
