Some folks have had enough of the Thanksgiving leftovers. Others have had enough of Kanye West. Fans are wondering if he’ll bounce back. Well Larry Wilmore did so as he’s back doing scripted shows with ABC. Lee Daniels is doing it too with a new TV show set to debut. Their 24K magic’s not done yet.

According to USA Today, Wilmore said in a statement “Disney took a chance on me as a young writer years ago and so I’m thrilled to return to the Mouse House. I hope my room still looks the same.” Wilmore and Daniels give us a kind of ‘brandorama feeling’ that might make you wanna up your game next year.

After an almost two year stint on Comedy Central, Wilmore got the boot. He’s best known as a writer and producer with show credits that include HBOs Insecure and ABCs Black-ish. The message from Wilmore and Daniels is in how they hustle their way, day after day until the next door opens and career goals pay.

Daniels has a new TV series for the breakout star in us. It’s a case of going after those ‘someday dreams.’ There’s no guarantee in life like death and taxes. But Daniels knows about having a ‘someday attitude’ to keep pushing & believing. He’s even getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to prove it!

So Wilmore’s show might have been cancelled but he’s ready to get back to what he loves. This includes writing/producing new projects, supervising others and mentoring new talent. It might seem like their time is spread thin but Wilmore and Daniels can relate to that ‘lovey dovey’ feeling you get when you ‘do you.’

Some folks have had enough. Thanksgiving leftover gettin’ kinda touch. Others hope Kanye goes away. He’s taking fans for play. Wondering if he’s over and done. Or just the childish fun. Wilmore doing shows again for ABC. Daniels doing big again in TV. That’s why their 24K magic doesn’t come for free.

According to USA Today note. Wilmore’s back in his trench coat. Saying Disney once took a chance on him. A young writer years ago on a whim. Thrilled for return to Mouse House set. Hopes room still looks the same, bet. They give us a kinda ‘brandorama feeling.’ For upping our game next year to the ceiling.

After an almost two year run. Comedy Central told him show was done. Best known as writer and producer. Show credits on Insecure and Black-ish palooza. Showing us how they hustle their way. From sun-up to sundown day after day. Until next door opens and career goals pay.

Daniels with new TV series on deck. For the breakout star in us, heck. Case of going after ‘someday dreams.’ A staple for winning teams. No guarantee like death & taxes. But a someday attitude is what he waxes. To keep pushing for more, believing the same. Even getting a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame.

So Wilmore might have gotten the boot. But he’s found new heights to shoot. Getting back to his old time sake. To mix passion and grow his stake. New projects and mentoring up-and-comers. Supervising tomorrow’s go-getters. Seems like a lot as dreams come thru. A ‘lovey dovey’ feeling so just ‘do you.’

There’s a new ‘B’ in town..that’s Samantha Bee. She’s the recent late night host and the only female in the ranks. Meanwhile, back in Harlem USA, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is launching a new Charter school in his hometown. They’ve found new wind beneath their wings for hitting the sweet spot & lifting street value.

In a press statement Combs said “I want to impact the lives of young people in my community and build future leaders. All our children should be able to pursue their dreams. That is something I can impact with this school.” Diddy has gone from ‘good to gush’ by turning his career milestones into dream projects.

Before getting her own gig, Bee worked with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show for 12 years. Combs as the all-time rapper is teaming up with noted Educators to bring a new slice of success to students. They have used their early days in showbiz to figure-out how to crack the code or break the mold in media & music.

It’s that same tenacity that he hopes to bring to students. Maybe what works for connecting smarts to hearts might be the same as what’s helped him go from rapper to mogul. It’s in reaching people where they are and taking them to a place where whatever it takes to win, feels good. That’s the real hotspot.

The buzz around Bee these days is whether her rise will help to expand the club of female late night hosts. When asked about Stewart’s role she said “He gave me the platform for me to teach myself.” Maybe that’s how Diddy sees this effort as the next frontier in his quest to flex more eagle-high dreams.

There’s a new ‘B’ in town. With enough honey to go ‘round. That’s Samantha Bee from Comedy Central. Now with her own TBS portal. Meanwhile back on the Harlem block. Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs brings new school house rock. Both with new wind beneath their wings. Hitting sweet spot and street value things.

In press statement saying he wants to impact. Lives of young people as a ‘hood contract. To build future leaders and teams. So that kids can pursue their dreams. Something about doing it in school. Where learning is the main rule. He’s gone from ‘good to gush.’ So he wants kids to feel the same rush.

Before getting her own show. Bee worked in Jon Stewart’s comedy row. Spent 12 years doing funny bits. Now she’s ready to do the hits. Combs as all-time rapper’s delight. Teams-up with Educators in the fight. Bringing kids a new slice of success. To crack the code or break the mold after recess.

Same tenacity he hopes they gain. Knowing how to channel the pain. What works for connecting smarts to hearts. Helped him go from rapper to mogul parts. In reaching people where they are. Taking them to place of a star. Doing whatever it takes to win. A real hotspot that pops a grin.

Buzz around Bee is if her rise. Will expand the club or reach the wise. Female hosts in late night ranks. And some women in their spanks. When asked about Stewart’s mentor role. Kinda wants to say ‘bless his soul.’ It’s how Diddy sees his next milestone. Eagle-high dreams to stepping stone.

Theme:–The Year of ‘Brandemonium’
Where Hopes & Dreams Become Real on Breakout Teams” (Old-School Flava)

Those ‘in the know’ say Family Feud has seen bigger ratings in recent years. Some think it’s gotten new life with Steve Harvey as the latest host. The show airs on weeknights in regular season rotation as well as in syndication. How does Harvey juggle all this work? He says it’s in taking care of your temple.

Harvey knows something about a diet makeover and workout schedule. He takes seriously the idea that what you put in is what you put out. But that doesn’t just apply to his body. It’s also about feeding the soul. He produces maximum results in life because he knows your “temple gifts” can look good on you.

He’s normally decked-out in the finest suits. Things match and coordinate in ways that would make a mother proud. However, when you look past the outward appearance, you realize there’s a spiritual calling at work. This is how you make big G (o-d) look good which puts everything in place as it should.

When in doubt of the next career move, be sure to at least pack purpose for the ride. Where there’s purpose there’s a sense of serving some greater good. While Harvey’s work is multi-media, he also gives back through his foundation by partnering with others to mentor boys from single-parent households.

Between the start and end of the day Harvey finds ways to make folks laugh. He seems to be having the most laughs himself on The Feud. He makes a living doing these gigs because his passion goes to work for a paycheck. Your passion is in how you ‘do you’ such that others might say, “damn, you’re good!”

Where Hopes & Dreams Become Real on Breakout Teams” (New-School Flava)

Those ‘in the know’ see a shift in gears. Family Feud’s ratings up in recent years. Some think Steve Harvey gave it new life. He’s the latest host dressed sharp as a knife. Airing weeknights in regular season rotation. Also seen in cable syndication. With many jobs in his spoke. Taking care of his temple is no joke.

Harvey knows about a diet makeover. Doing his regular workout is no pushover. Serious about the idea of what you put in. So that what he puts out makes folks grin. Not just about biceps and your core. But also about the soul’s dujour. Bringing max results in the making. As “temple gifts” look good for the taking.

Normally decked-out in the finest suits. Things paying off in his life fruits. Looking cool to make a mother proud. Even if other’s love to hear him loud. Going beyond his outward flair. You see a spiritual calling in the air. That’s about making big G (o-d) look good. Having things in place where it should.

When in doubt of the next career move. Think about putting purpose in the groove. Where there’s purpose there’s a sense of serving. Some earthly good for a greater rising. While Harvey’s work is multi-media happy. Little he does seems to be crappy. Like mentoring boys on not being sappy.

Between the start and end of day. He makes people laugh in some way. Laughing himself silly on The Feud. Not to be seen as acting rude. Making a living with these gigs. His passion goes to work for a paycheck jig. Passion is how you might burn like wood. Even making others say, “damn, you’re good!”

Tip: Packing purpose for the ride means spreading your gifts so that your 9-to-5 is as good as it gets.
