The Rule Of Threes

Continuing with my quest to act on all Rules Of Three, no matter how mundane...

While at a birthday party of Tamara's, a friend of hers glowed about how much she loved Tracy Morgan. The only good actor on SNL, she said. I said I heard he had a sitcom coming up. She got really excited.

Then Peter elbowed me at a commercial and said, "This kid looks really funny." And the promo for the Tracy Morgan was on tv, and he was talking about his son. And he's right, he's funny.

Then I just read an article on salon with the following excerpt:

Look. I've got TiVo. I don't even watch commercials. But at some point I checked out one of these promos and now I'm addicted and can't wait for this ridiculous show to hit the air. Tracy Morgan plays a family man, blah blah blah, who cares? But he's got this incredible kid playing his son. Usually I can't stand smart-ass child actors, but honestly, this kid defies description. Remember how Gary Coleman had exactly one expression, the pouty lips thing he did when he said, "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?" Well, this kid on "The Tracy Morgan Show" is like a cross between Webster and Jim Carey. He's the hammiest little freak I've ever seen, and I can't wait to check out his stupid show.
So, there you go. Consider yourself enlightened.
