Blackish is a ABC Hit!
Congratulations to the cast of Blackish for pulling in great ratings for ABC during its debut!
"Black-ish" stars Anthony Anderson as an Andre, advertising executive whose success has left him alienated from his roots — as his father (Laurence Fishburne), who never misses a chance to bring up his part in the Civil Rights movement, never misses a chance to remind him. Early on, we see a fantasy sequence where a tour bus swings by Andre's sumptuously appointed (and, of course, sparkling white) house to give tourists a glimpse of "the mythical and majestic Black Family."
