Everybody Hates Chris is an American period sitcom television series that is based around the troubled experiences of comedian Chris Rock as a teenager. The show's title parodies the popular CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, and is set from 1982 to 1987. However, Rock himself was actually a teenager from 1978 to 1984, having been born in 1965.
The show was created by Rock and Ali LeRoi and was originally developed for Fox, before being passed over. It was then picked-up by UPN where it aired for its first season in 2005, but later moved to The CW, where it aired its remaining three seasons. In 2009, Rock announced that the series' end had matched up with his own past and he felt it was time to end the show.
Everybody Hates Chris received critical acclaim. The American Film Institute selected Everybody Hates Chris as one of the best 10 television series of 2007, stating that the show "provides a very real look at growing up in America - a challenge that demands a discussion of race and class often absent from television today."Everybody Hates Chris was named one of the Best School Shows of All Time by AOL TV.Common Sense Media's Marjorie Kase and Shanel Walker & Emily Kofoed gave the show 4 stars, and said it was "a prime example of how to take serious issues and approach them in a humorous yet thought-provoking way. The series is innovative, funny, and stereotype-defying - enjoyable for teens and their parents."
