Everybody Hates Chris has slowly gained steam since it premiered in 2005, and reruns of the comedy series have been picked up by Nick at Nite as part of a four-year deal beginning in 2009.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network is believed to have paid between $300,000 and $350,000 per episode for the series motivated by comedian Chris Rock’s childhood experiences. It stars Tyler James Williams as the scrappy oldest of three kids in Brooklyn, NY, in the 1980s. Other stars include Terry Crews, Tichina Arnold, Tequan Richmond, Imani Hakim and Vincent Martella.

Now in its third season, Everybody Hates Chris is executive produced by Chris Rock, Ali LeRoi, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky, and Don Reo. The series has already been sold to several stations nationwide for broadcast syndication, which also launches in 2009.

Check out this clip, which I think appeals to everybody in one way or another:
