At first glance, the show sounds promising, but beware people of the world. What lies ahead could very well be a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Chris Rock has certainly staked his claim as one of the greatest stand-ups of all time with his early HBO specials, most notably Bring the Pain. His early standup was so strong in fact that when we hear he's involved in being the creative vision for a project our immediate thoughts are "Great, this could be something really smart and funny."

Upon further review however, nothing could be further from the truth. The sad reality is the Chris Rock of 2005 , along with co-conspiritor Ali LeRoi, are more likely to give us Head fo State or Down to Earth than something groundbreaking.

He's the new Steve Martin and another example of what can happen to a comedian when you start making insane money and become disconected from people who tell you when you're not funny.

We'll keep our fingers crossed though.
