Confirmed- Everybody Hates Chris Over At The CW

As we first reported several weeks ago, it looks like Chris Rock has officially announced that he has planned to end the TV show Everybody Hates Chris, the show based on his early life after four seasons.

Everybody Hates Chris hasn't been picked up for a fifth season and the comedian plans to make it easy for bosses at the CW by ending the current season with a fitting finale.

As reported by several sites today, Terry Crews, who plays Rock's dad in the series, says, "Chris Rock didn't graduate high school and started comedy when he was, like, 17 years old. Our Chris (Tyler James Williams) is now a sophomore in high school, so the timing is lining up pretty well. Once he becomes a comedian, the show's over."

And Williams, who is currently pursuing a film course at New York University, admits he's happy with the ending of the show, which is unofficially planned for May 8.
