HEY YALL

Anyone getting the false allegations e-mail claiming NBC did not properly promote the UNPREDICTABLE MUSICAL Jamie Fox because there wasn't enough white musical guest appearing? Couldn't be more false. Promo was done right there on their website and isn't this the same network that aired the Cosby Show and all black cast from 1984-1992? The e-mail claims they did wrong by putting the musical up against and already established American Idol? And so what? What is your take on all this? Just another way to create drama.

Do you have a copy of the e-mail you can post? Otherwise, I can't really comment.

And welcome to the boards!

ETA: This is the wrong forum for a message like this. snopes spotting is for mentions of snopes in the news. This message belongs more in the Entertainment forum.

With no research whatsoever, it seems reasonable to guess that Kanye West is one of his surprise guests. KW didn't exactly endear himself to viewers when he made his comments during the hurricane telethon a few months back. Add to that the protests over The Book of Daniel, and KW's appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone with a crown of thorns would make it understandable if they chose not to promote that particular guest star.
