Okay, so wait: y’all know I have a wholly unnatural obsession with Cedrick the Entertainer, right? I mean, I’m not stalkerish or anything like that, but that man cracks me all the way up whenever he opens his fool mouth. I live for his stand up: yes, I watch Kings of Comedy whenever it’s on TV and I was one of apparently the few who dug Cedric the Entertainer Presents, and I seriously plan my mornings around when I know he’s going to join in as a guest on the Steve Harvey Morning Show. Yes, I know. I have issues. So you know how excited I am about tonight’s Season 3 premiere of his hit sitcom, The Soul Man. Indeed!
Even better: tonight’s show, starring Cedric alongside Niecy Nash and Wesley Jonathan, is LIVE. Not just Lakeside”All the Way Live,” but actually live, as in, the cameras are rolling real time and those nuts could do anything without benefit of do-overs and editing magic, which means tonight’s show is going to be extra. And dig it: Betty White and Brandy will be stopping by, with a few other special guests sprinkled in to make the premiere unforgettable.
Want to up the fun factor? Join me as I team up with Lamar and Ronnie Tyler of BlackAndMarriedWithKids.com and a few of your fav bloggers as we fete Cedric and The Soul Man with a Twitter party. The online soiree kicks off a half hour before the show premieres, and continues while we talk about Soul Man and our favorite characters until the episode ends at 11:30 PM.
We had a blast last year when we celebrated the Season 2 premiere of The Soul Man on Twitter, and this year will be yet another party ran all through by the time we finish laughing, joking, gossiping and gabbing about Cedric and the crew in celebration of The Soul Man’s season 3 premiere.

About The Soul Man
From the creators of Hot in Cleveland, The Soul Man revolves around Cedric “The Entertainer’s” character, Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine, an R&B superstar-turned-minister, who takes over as preacher of his father’s church. Niecy Nash (Reno 911!) stars as the reverend’s wife, Lolli. The pilot also features John Beasley (Everwood) as his father, and Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You) as his younger brother. The character of Reverend Boyce originated on a second season episode of Hot in Cleveland, in which Cedric guest-starred. Season 3 premieres March 26th at 10:30 p.m. EST/9:30 C on TV Land.
