Comedian Michael Blackson said he’s always keeping tabs what his competition is doing!

AfterBuzz TV covered the 9th Annual Pre-Grammy’s Manager’s Brunch and reporters Drew Jones and Nakia Monet talked with some of the industry’s biggest names about what they watch on TV.

First, we chatted with Ghanaian actor and comedian Michael Blackson, and he let us know that he uses TV strategically, to suss out the competition!

“I like to watch my competitors, Dave Chapelle’s new [Netflix] special, Eddie’s Murphy’s stuff,” he told reporter Drew Jones.

And of course, like the rest of us, he’s watching Atlanta on FX.

We also caught up with Blue Williams, the Founder and CEO of Family Tree Entertainment, who gave a nice shoutout to one of the CW’s most underrated shows, All American. Of course, he also shouted Succession, Billions, Power, and his wife Vicky made SURE to highlight 2019’s Queen Regina King for that amazing Watchmen performance.

Next, Steve Lobel, CEO of A2Z Entertainment and “weworking,” let us know that he’s most excited for the Super Bowl, and guess what…he’s a Giants fan. Speaking of football, he, like the rest of us, watched that CRAZY Aaron Hernandez documentary on Netflix.

Finally, April Q Russel, the SVP of Strategy and Development for Family Tree outed herself as a true TV fan, naming three incredible shows she can’t get enough of this year: Queen Of The South, Empire, and Power. Like the rest of you Power fans, Host Nakia and April both immediately asked the same question: “who shot ghost?”
