Why Is the New Yorker Like a Teacher on Vacation?
It seems to take me about a week nowadays to get through a profile in the New Yorker, so I apologize if this has been blogged to death, but in reading the profile of Boondocks cartoonist Aaron McGruder, this passage stood out:
"Most of the time, though, they work on the pilot for Fox. It's been twenty years since 'Fat Albert,' the last black animated series on a major network, went off the air, so the prospect of 'The Boondocks' going to prime time is significant."

Apparently nobody at the New Yorker is a very big fan of Eddie Murphy's "The PJ's", which actually aired in prime time for various stints from 1999 to 2001 on Fox and the WB, unlike Fat Albert, which was a Saturday morning staple, except for a few prime time specials.>
