'Chappele's Show', starring Dave Chappelle, proved its staying power
this season by being the highest rated show on [basic cable] television
for the Wednesday, 10:30 pm timeslot. The 'Chappelle' audience also grew
by 55% since the first season to an average number of 3.1 million viewers.
Being that this is one of my favorite half hours of comedy [especially
the second season], it seems this growth to be only too natural. Most
people should agree that Chappelle has found his groove and, therefore
created/wrote skits for SE2 that completely over-threw prior skits from
A few of the skits that deserver honorable mention:
Belonged to the first episode (#201) of the season. Chappelle acts on
a parady of the Samual Adams beer commercials while also playing off the
stereotypical Samuel L Jackson character.
Also part of the first episode (#201) of SE2. Chappelle shows how much
cooler video looks when it is put into slow motion.
Belonged to the second episode (#202) of SE2. Chappelle explains that
Gallagher sold off his show to his brother and now to a black man; hence,
black Gallagher. Gallagher uses weapons instead of a mallet.
Belonged to the second episode (#202) of SE2. Chappelle, proving that
he is indiscriminatory on who he chooses to make fun of, picks on himself
as he grows up.
Belonged to the fourth episode (#204) of SE2. An instant classic! Probably
one of Chappelle's all time best skits with the discovery of story teller
Charlie Murphy. Charlie Murphy discusses hanging out with Rick James back
in the days.
Belonged to the fifth episode (#205) of SE2. Another classic showing the
power behind Charlie Murphy and his 'True Hollywood Stories.' Charlie
discusses playing basketball against Prince..
Belonged to the sixth episode (#206) of SE2. Short and hilarious as Dave
details how Lil John (Jon) must be in real life by how he acts in rap
Belonged to the ninth episode (#209) of SE2. Dave finds out he impregnated
Oprah and is now incredibly rich. He quits his job and then moves in with
Belonged to the ninth episode (#209) of SE2. Dave discusses why he cannot
be on a jury as he will never find a black person to be guilty. Trials
include OJ, R. Kelly, M. Jackson, and Blake.
Belonged to the tenth episode (#210) of SE2. Dave is Puff Daddy as he
figures strange quests for his rappers.
Belonged to the twelth episode (#212) of SE2. Dave demands a raise and,
thinking he is unreplacable, quits the show. He is replaced with Wayne
Brady who does a great 'Training Day' parady with Dave.
Belonged to the thirteenth episode (#213) of SE2. Dave shows the differences
there would be if Bush were black.
The only problem that still remains with 'Chappele's Show' is the musical
guests. They need to polish that off or remove the segment entirely from
