NEW YORK (AP) _ Struggling with the ratings and harsh critics, Magic Johnson brought in a new sidekick.

Comedian Tommy Davidson, an original cast member for ``In Living Color,'' has been added to ``The Magic Hour.''

Johnson's original sidekick, comedian Craig Shoemaker, was fired after publicly complaining that the show was an embarrassment and ``an absolute nightmare.''

Davidson also had roles in ``Booty Call'' and ``Ace Ventura II: When Nature Calls.''
