YMMV / Everybody Hates Chris

  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: This show is very popular with Brazilian audiences. Absurdly popular. Teenagers actually quote the show in every possible instance.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Greg was shown to wear costumes as pajamas. One of them included a Robin costume. A few years later, his actor, Vincent Martella, would do the voice of the teenage Jason Todd in Batman: Under the Red Hood.
    • In the series finale, Chris' mother mocks Chris for trying to justify going for a GED by pointing out Bill Cosby got a GED because Bill Cosby was a comedian. In recent years, it's a pretty good thing she didn't want Chris to be like Bill Cosby
  • Ho Yay: At least, this is how 2 different pairs of girls view a couple of passionate arguments between Chris and Greg.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Now when you see Julius, you'll probably be thinking "That's the Old Spice "POWER!" guy!"
  • The Scrappy:
    • Everybody hates Tonya. And that fact is not even a joke with the show's title.
    • Other characters seems to have this kind of treatment just for being a complete dick with Chris. Examples are Caruso and Miss Morello.
    • Rochelle's snobbery, short temper, immaturity, and such can become incredibly grating at times. Not to mention it makes it pretty clear where Tonya gets her behavior from.
  • Take That, Scrappy!:
    • Anytime Tonya gets busted.
    • When Julius gives Rochelle a classy shut up when he revealed that he made a credit card account so he could buy their wedding rings. May count as a Crowning Moment of Awesome.
  • The Woobie: Chris, of course. He feels like he is in Drew's shadow all the time, his sister is a brat, his parents discipline him more than plenty, and he always gets picked on all the time.
