From The Columbus Dispatch

In a TV world with The Cosby Show as a distant memory, TBS has quickly become the home of minority-driven comedy.

Actors of various ethnicities are found on the broadcast networks and the biggest of the cable outlets, often playing characters in ensemble dramas such as Grey’s Anatomy — although some (such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, which stars Laurence Fishburne) cast nonwhite actors in leading roles.

In comedy, however, diversity seems to have hit a wall, especially since the demise of UPN.

The recent Fox sitcom Brothers was quickly pulled from the schedule after disappointing ratings.

So, these days, the new TBS block of minority-oriented programming stands virtually unopposed.

It was that momentum that led Ice Cube, the rapper turned actor turned TV producer, to take Are We There Yet? to TBS.
