Renew Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell

It's not hard to see what Chris Rock sees in W. Kamau Bell. He's funny, political, and smart as hell. But it's more than that - W. Kamau Bell needs to be on TV. More to the point, America needs him on TV.

Which is to say, few on TV are willing to speak truth to (and about) power like Kamau. From his opening takedown of Missouri Representative Todd Akin in episode three to his man-on-the-street "stop and frisk" interviews, Kamau brings a perspective that is sorely missing from late night comedy. That Kamau is an articulate, well-educated, and socially conscious young black man is important -- the dearth of these voices in the mainstream is deplorable, and FX has done the world a great service by elevating one of this demo's best and brightest. But similarly important to note is the breadth of his appeal, the many different kinds of people Kamau's comedy reaches, and his ability to start important conversations after the show is over.

Totally Biased is the kind of TV that needs to be on TV. FX should renew Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell for another season.

      I was hooked on Mr. Bell as soon as I saw his presentation on the Sikh killings. It was powerful while at the same time being respectfully humorous. I prefer his show to Russell Brand.

      This show is important to me because Mr. Bell brings forth a fresh and insightful perspective to today's politics. Also, more importantly he is funny and very entertaining.
