Actress-Comedian Mo’Nique premiered her new late night talk show, The Mo’Nique Show, last night on BET for an hour filled with celebrities, comedy bits, a performance and her signature yelling.

The show had good guests, Steve Harvey and Monica appeared on the pioneering episode and an okay performance from Jeremih. Steve and Monica were great and Mo’Nique’s banter with the two guests was good too but I couldn’t handle all the yelling.

Part of Mo’Nique’s funny charm is that she’s over the top, charismatic and down-to-earth yet another part of Mo’Nique is her ability to make you cringe and turn the volume down on your television. Others agree, Twitter accounts proved it. Even comedian Lil Duval tweeted that he had to turn the television on mute and read the captions. He could’ve been joking, but it sounded like a great idea.

Yet despite Mo’Nique’s constant yelling through the show, it seems to have a good premise. For the first episode, it wasn’t bad. Pretty good, actually. The show has potential with a little bit of fine tuning.

The Mo’Nique Show comes on nightly at 11 p.m. Tonight’s guests are Tiny, Toya and Faizon Love. Fizz and Boog will perform. Hmm, don’t know about that performance though.

 So, check it out and let us know what you think!
