Cedric The Entertainer & Damon Wayans Jr. Got New Shows … On CBS (Yes, The Network’s Going Black!)

It’s Upfront Week starting Monday when the five broadcast networks give the first sneak peek to their new shows for fall. But CBS is so excited about two of its new shows that it’s already announced their lineup. (Since CBS has had a bit of a rep of being a network that’s doesn’t invest in diversity, this is probably a really smart move!)

According to Deadline, Cedric The Entertainer is starring in Welcome To The Neighborhood, a comedy where he plays a guy who’s not to keen on his overly friendly new neighbors – oh, let them bring over a bundt cake!

Damon, whose project is still untitled, will play a guy who lives with a Harry Styles‘ inspired roommate. And yep, the One Direction alum is on the production team.

Of course, for fans of The Big Bang Theory (which we say appeals to all ethnicities), tonight is its big 11th season finale! Amy and Sheldon are finally getting married, and guess who’s coming to dinner – their entire families! Guest stars include Kathy Bates, John Ross Bowie, Mark Hamill, Courtney Henggeler, Lauren Lapkus, Laurie Metcalf and our fave Wendy William‘s sub Jerry O’Connell. Catch it tonight, Thursday, May 10 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
