As for "The Tracy Morgan Show," here's how NBC describes the series (via press release):

Morgan stars in the sharp-edged family comedy as father, husband and small-business owner Tracy Mitchell, who, with his beautiful, no-nonsense wife Alicia (Tamala Jones, "Head of State"), share their modest apartment with their two kids, 13-year-old Derrick (Marc John Jefferies, "The Haunted Mansion") and 7-year-old Jimmy (newcomer Bobb�e J. Thompson). While at work at his auto garage, Mitchell is responsible for his other more dysfunctional family of mechanics -- Spoon (John Witherspoon, "The Wayans Bros.") and Bernard (Heavy D, "The Cider House Rules"). Every day, they remind Tracy of the headaches of running a business as they contend with neighborhood characters and would-be customers such as Freddie (Katt Williams, "The Friday After Next").

David M. Israel and Jim O�Doherty are the executive producers and writers of the series, a joint production of Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, Broadway Video Television and NBC Studios.
