New Season in Review: Black-ish a Truly Modern Family

Black-ish

Comedies with an actual point of view are as rare as they are welcome — especially in a fall awash in mediocre new cookie-cutter romantic comedies. Even in a better season, ABC's provocative and very funny Black-ish (9:30/8:30c) would stand out for its broad and biting satire of an uneasily post racial society seen through a very modern-family prism. (It's also about time ABC scheduled a smart family comedy after its multiple-Emmy-winning champ Modern Family.)

Fall Preview: Meet the Hilarious Black-ish Trio

Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Laurence Fishburne

It's a weekday morning on the Black-ish soundstage, and Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross are made up as if they just rolled out of bed: Ross's hair is a crazy mess and Anderson's pajamas are in wrinkled disarray. In other words, they resemble an average, frazzled American couple waking up to a noisy family, ready to face another day at their demanding jobs.

Anthony Anderson Eats America for Food Network

Anthony Anderson

To call Anthony Anderson a foodie is a bit of an understatement. The 43-year-old actor has competed on Food Network's Chopped, judged episodes of Iron Chef America, and has vowed to go to culinary school. "Within the next couple of years," Anderson specifies. "The kids will be off at college, the bills will be paid, and I won't have to worry about anything except how I'm gonna make this Alfredo sauce from scratch." So when Food Network was pitched the idea to tour the U.S. in search of the nation's coolest food festivals, they had the perfect host in mind. "I said, 'That's right up my alley, let's make that happen,'" Anderson recalls. The result is Eating America With Anthony Anderson, which premieres Monday, July 28 at 9/8c.

Critic's Notebook: ABC at TCA

John Cho, Karen Gillan

The verdict is still out regarding ABC's middling batch of new shows for the fall — as often happens, many of the network's more tantalizing projects are being held until midseason — but as ABC stepped into the TCA press-tour spotlight on Tuesday, the vibe was unusually positive because of one overarching hot-button issue: diversity. (For more ABC news, go here.)

Is Black-ish the new Black?

Want a bar mitzvah but aren't Jewish? Comedian Anthony Anderson can help.

The star of ABC's upcoming comedy Black-ish, which premieres Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 9:30/8:30c, was faced with that question when his 12-year-old son expressed a wish for the Jewish coming-of-age ritual. "I looked him in the eye and said, 'That's not our culture, but I will throw you a hip-hop "bro-mitzvah."' I trademarked the name," Anderson said at ABC's Television Critics Assocation fall previews on Tuesday.

Weekend Review: About a Boy, Fisher Sneak Peeks, Downton Finale

Minnie Driver, David Walton, Banjamin Stockham

This week's gold-medal question: Can NBC reverse its spotty track record when it comes to using the ratings boost of the Olympics to launch new programs? (Remember the Summer 2012 debacle when the network interrupted the flow of London's Closing Ceremony to inflict Animal Practice on an unwilling captive audience?)

The news is better this weekend, during the closing nights of the Games. The comedies getting a sneak peek are considerably more entertaining than Animal Practice — what wouldn't be? — and they won't air until after that night's Olympics packages are finished.

First up is NBC's best new comedy of the season (including the star-driven disappointments that flopped on Thursdays this fall): About a Boy, airing Saturday night at approximately 11/10c before moving to its regular time period next Tuesday at 9/8c. This charmingly offbeat ... read more
