A new family comedy, "Black-ish" is coming to ABC this Fall. Anthony Anderson will star along with Tracee Ellis Ross and Laurence Fishburne.

Here's the description:

Andre Johnson has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow, four kids, and a colonial home in the 'burbs. But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? With a little help from his dad, Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future.
I can say that this will be the first network comedy I'll be tuning into in years. The previews look hilarious. Take a look.

God I miss 90s sitcoms. Fresh Prince, Parent Hood, etc. They didn't have to try the shows were relatable yet funny. 

Now shows just try.....so hard to be funny. *sigh* 

If I watched it would only be to watch Lawrence and Tracy....Anthony go too serious so his "funny" doesn't seem genuine anymore and the kids are annoying.

I don't like the name. Not too keen on the concept either. I think some of the episodes would be repetitive. I just watched the trailer on youtube and feel like I've seen the whole season. I didn't find it funny either. Then again, I don't find many of the comedies showing on tv these days funny. :/

Interesting.

a couple positives:
• nice to see something a little more positive and not RHOA ratchet
• Its cool that its on ABC
• Tyler Perry doesn't appear to be involved

Will it be funny? I don't know but I wasn't digging the Game like that either but I like that show a lot now.

Seems like tumblr wrote the spec for this.

A lighthearted comedy where a charismatic cast of non-threatening black people ponder what it means to be black in a supposed post-racial America. I see the subtext all around this.

I'll watch. I love the leads.

I wasn't feeling the title Orange Is The New Black. Almost wrote the show off by the title alone.

Did not see the clip.

But I will try most things once before I offer an opinion.

Interesting.  I never thought it referred to race.

I never thought it was talking about race either

That saying has always been around when talking about what the new color of the season is

Its borderline coon-ish. I'm surprised I'm the first to say this.
