Comic DL Hughley is clearly a funny guy. Smart too. Yet when he tries to put his talent in a a vehicle other than standup, it never quite comes together. Remember his wildly uneven CNN show, "DL Hughley Breaks the News"?
Which brings us to "DL Hughley: The Endangered List" (11 tonight, Comedy Central), his one-hour "social experiment" or satirical documentary about the comic's quest to get the black man on the endangered species list. Once again, there are moments of sharp observation, humor, even poignancy. But it, too, is more parts than the sum of those parts, a great idea that doesn't quite come together.
