    Is anyone gonna give this show a chance?  It looks like it could be interesting. I wonder how provocative the show will get.

    The pilot is free on iTunes and I watched it. It is good so far it is a little preechy but I think they just want to set it up. Fishburne is great and Anderson is pretty good too. I love his wife too played by Tracee Ellis Ross. I’ll give it a chance. It works well in the ABC Wed. Family line up of The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, and now Black-ish. I love the real diversity of the families

    It’s suppose to be good. Currently has a 84 out of 100 on Metacritic. Could see it being an award show magnet

    I don’t know if it will be an awards magnet. I think it will suffer The Middle and The Goldbergs’ shadow cast of Modern Family that only one family sitcom will be welcomed with open arms awards wise. Fishburne could get some attention as the vetern turning to comedy like Andre Braugher was this year but I think Anderson will have alot to prove if he wants to crack into the Best Actor race

    I’m interested to see this one. Good to see Tracee Ellis Ross back in a high profile role, I know Anthony Anderson can be solid, and Laurence Fishburne as a sitcom grandpa? Come on!

    Let me get this straight: the b is lowercase and there is a hyphen in the title?  You are making it hard to love you, black-ish!

    Laurence Fishburne is billed as a special guest star, so maybe he can get a nomination.

    This had a few fun and cute parts, but was not funny enough to keep watching, even with the good reviews.

    So will Fishburne be like Cloris Leachman in Rasing Hope where they are there in pretty much every episode but still considered a guest actor?

    I think so.  He said that the only way that he was allowed to be on both Hannibal and this show this year was if he did not have regular status on either.

    The pilot was pretty good Anthony Anderson was great in it and it is nice seeing there actually be a good TV sitcom with an all African-American cast

    Grade: B-

    Anderson and Ross worked together well. Some funny lines. Fishburne had the funny line about “you’d be better off watching Roots”- I liked that the most.

    I initially had zero interest in this show, but was convinced to try it by good reviews.  I liked the pilot a lot.  I found it funny, and it worked well as a setup for the rest of the show (though, yeah, it would get annoying if there’s this level of “we need to be more black!” in every episode).  I like the different perspectives from the three different generations.  Good casting, too.  I’ll definitely keep watching.

    I’m glad people gave it a try, though being after Modern Family, it’s no surprise they would have, despite the off-putting title.  Oh boy, ABC.  Who wants to watch shows called black-ish and Selfie?

    Off-topic – but what’s the best site you all use to see ratings compiled for series weekly?  I’m trying to find the best holistic database to just keep up with it and track how shows do weekly over the first month or two of the TV season.
