Premise

The deadpan Rat Packer played an unmarried showbiz publicist in this sitcom's first season. But an overhaul of the show in the second year (with a title change to `The New Joey Bishop Show') turned the character into a married talk-show host and stand-up comedian. Celebrities appeared as themselves---guests on the fictional talk show. In its final season, the series moved to CBS, where it was broadcast in black and white (after being in color on NBC for three seasons).

MIXED-ISH - In "mixed-ish," Rainbow Johnson recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family in the '80s and the constant dilemmas they had to face over whether to assimilate or stay true to themselves. Bow's parents Paul and Alicia decide to move from a hippie commune to the suburbs to better provide for their family. As her parents struggle with the challenges of their new life, Bow and her siblings navigate a mainstream school in which they're perceived as neither black nor white. This family's experiences illuminate the challenges of finding one's own identity when the rest of the world can't decide where you belong. (ABC/Kelsey McNeal)
