To find out why so many people clicked with the sitcom, ETonline caught up with Second Generation star Tatyana Ali. "The show is fresh," she explains. "The guys and Maya are a tight knit crew and they stick together. Reading the scripts, I really wanted them to succeed. I think people watching feel the same way. I also laughed like crazy."
And to prove her point, we've scored an exclusive clip from Tuesday's all-new episode, featuring 7th Heaven alum, David Gallagher. "David is so amazing on the show," Ali tells ETonline.
"He plays one of Maya's love interests. Our first scene together was hilarious! I thought I knew exactly how I was going to play it, with Maya totally in control of the situation. He pulled out a line reading that caught me so off guard, I actually tripped over a chair when I walked away! I haven't seen the episode yet, but I hope that's the take they used because it's perfect for the scene." Watch!
Second Generation Wayans airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. on BET.
