T. J. HOLMES: My New Favorite Show And I Haven’t Even Seen It Yet

by T.J. Holmes

It’s only been on the air a couple of weeks, but “News One Now” is my favorite show on TV. Yes, it’s moved to the top of my list, ahead of “The Walking Dead,” “PTI,” and “Family Guy.” And, here’s the thing: due to a combination of cable company issues at my new home, I haven’t even been able to watch “News One Now” yet.

Roland Martin’s new show is the only national daily news show on TV dedicated to African Americans. That’s a big deal. And, I understand better than anyone just how big of a deal it is. (You’ll just have to trust me on that.)

Of course, African Americans have the same hopes and fears about their families and careers as any other American.
