NICK AT NITE LAUNCHES AWARD-WINNING FAMILY COMEDY EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS LABOR DAY, SEPT. 7

NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2009 � Nick at Nite, the home of the modern-day family comedy, launches Everybody Hates Chris Labor Day, Sept. 7, with an all-night marathon from 10:00 p.m. � 6:00 a.m. (ET/PT). The award-winning series, inspired and co-created by actor/comedian Chris Rock's real-life childhood experiences, then joins Nick at Nite's primetime line-up on Tuesday, Sept. 8, with back-to-back episodes airing nightly from 10:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Nick at Nite has acquired all four seasons (88 episodes) of the series from CBS Television Distribution.

The half-hour series stars Tyler James Williams ("Unaccompanied Minors") as Chris, Terry Crews ("The Longest Yard") as Julius, Tichina Arnold ("Martin") as Rochelle, Tequan Richmond ("Ray") as Drew, Imani Hakim as Tonya and Vincent Martella ("Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo") as Greg.

Everybody Hates Chris aired from Sept. 2005 to May 2009 on UPN/CW and is inspired by Rock's real-life childhood experiences.

Uprooted to a new neighborhood and bused into a predominantly white middle school two hours away by his strict, hard-working parents, Chris struggles to find his place while keeping his siblings in line at home and surmounting the challenges of junior high. This responsible, resilient adolescent brings a distinct, funny spin to his everyday trials and traumas, in the critically acclaimed, single-camera comedy. Everybody Hates Chris has earned an NAACP Image Award� for Outstanding Comedy Series, as well as Golden Globe� and People's Choice Award nominations.
