It doesn't officially premiere on the network until Wednesday, September 24, at 9:30pm, but I just discovered (really by chance) that the first episode of ABC's new Kenya Barris half-hour scripted comedy, titled "Black-ish," is actually available for Free on iTunes. That's right, for Free. I went to ABC's website to see if they uploaded it there, so that I could embed it here, but no luck there; so iTunes it is. Did I mention it's available there for Free? Starring Anthony Anderson, and produced by Laurence Fishburne’s Cinema Gypsy production company, the series is based on Barris' own life (loosely), and follows an upper-middle class »

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 has some sage advice for anyone (idiots) looking to get a golf ball tee'd off their no-no special place ... leave it to the pros.The "Eating America" host was at Lax this weekend when he told TMZ Sports the reason he agreed to participate in the stunt was because the guy holding the golf club was a professional ... unlike the infamous video of a Playboy playmate getting her butt severely bruised by some amateur. »

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.

The guy who smacked a golf ball off the crotch of NHL star Tyler Seguin has a history of using celeb groins as tees ... in fact, he once took his driver to Anthony Anderson's man-zone ... and we've got the video. The guy wielding the club is Todd Keirstead -- a trick shot specialist who's been a professional golfer for 19 years. But before he whacked from Seguin's nether regions at a charity event in Dallas this week, »

Hollywood and the sports world played together nicely for Espn’s 2014 Espys award ceremony. The mixture of stars, stand-up comedy and speeches at the annual telecast at L.A.’s Nokia Theatre created a light yet sometimes highly emotional atmosphere during Wednesday night festivities.
Rapper and one-time “Saturday Night Live” host Drake hosted the live broadcast and took jabs at several of the champions being honored in his opening monologue.
Before the night’s events, Drake warned that he would not hold back any punches with his jokes, but did not intend any of them to be mean-spirited.
“I definitely think that hip-hop is a little more malicious than what any host is going for,” Drake said of how his music career would influence him as a host. “I think we’re not trying to end people’s careers or make people feel bad in any way. So our night, »

ABC had their Television Critics Association presentation on Tuesday, and we were there to get the latest scoop on their new fall TV lineup. Panels for Shonda Rhimes's new Viola Davis show, "How to Get Away With Murder" and the Anthony Anderson comedy "Black-ish" were among the highlights. What were some key takeaways from the network's big day?
1. ABC is "bullish" about Wednesday
So says ABC president Paul Lee, who was particularly enthusiastic about its comedy block that day this fall. "I personally believe 'The Goldbergs' is going to be discovered by a lot more people this year," he noted. There was a lot of love for the '80s-set comedy, which will now air between successes "The Middle" and "Modern Family."
2. There's a push for diversity
Lee also talked about the network's diverse programming."It is a mission statement to reflect America," he explained. "In a way it's »

How do you have a meaningful conversation about race and culture in a network television comedy? Calling your show "Black-ish" is one way to start. The ABC comedy starring Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross and Laurence Fishburne follows "Modern Family" this fall and provides a rare (for network TV) look at an affluent black family -- complete with four kids and a live-in grandpa played by Fishburne. And while race is right there in the title, both creator Kenya Barris ("The Game") and executive producer Larry Wilmore ("The Bernie Mac Show," "The Daily Show") promise the "family" element is even more important, as they explained during the show's presentation at the 2014 TCA summer press tour. "I know race is a big part of it and we're not running from it, but this is a show about culture," Barris said. "It's a show about what it's like to raise a family during a different time. »

Since pilot season, people wondered how a show called “Black-ish” could make fun of race so overtly and still get a green light from ABC. The show's creator distanced the comedy's core subject matter from race. “This show has so much less to do with race than it does culture,” Kenya Barris said. “Race is talked about less than ever before. My kids know this. Miley Cyrus is urban. Justin Bieber is urban. And in some ways, we can call them ‘black-ish.'” Also read: ABC's Paul Lee Predicts Success for New Fox Chiefs Dana Walden and Gary Newman “Black-ish »

ABC has one of the most diverse fall programming slates in TV history, and critics want to know why.
At the Television Critics Association press tour Tuesday, ABC chief Paul Lee fielded questions from reporters pushing for a more detailed explanation for why ABC greenlit three ethnic family comedies (Anthony Anderson’s Black-ish, Cristela Alonzo’s Cristela, and Eddie Huang’s Fresh Off the Boat, coming midseason), plus another drama series starring a black actress, Shonda Rhimes’ How to Get Away with Murder.
“We’re taking a very good step along that journey,” Lee told critics at the Beverly Hilton on Tuesday. »

"If you look at shows now that seem to lack diversity, they actually feel dated. America doesn't look like that anymore, and people want to see an America that looks like where they live." This was ABC entertainment president Paul Lee at his press tour executive session, discussing by far the most notable aspect of the network's freshman lineup of shows for next season. Just among the newbies debuting in fall are "Black-ish," starring Anthony Anderson as an affluent African American executive who's worried his kids are losing touch with their culture; "How to Get Away with Murder," ABC's latest Shonda Rhimes-produced series, starring Viola Davis as a criminal law professor; "Cristela," starring Latina comedian Cristela Alonzo (who also created it); and "Selfie," a "Pygmalion" riff that casts John Cho in the Henry Higgins role. Among the shows on the bench for mid-season: "Fresh Off the Boat," about an »

Generally one of the most elusive of TV executives when it comes to TCA press tour candor -- The CW's Mark Pedowitz is a worthy challenger -- ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee may or may not have been saved by the success of "Resurrection," which somewhat salvaged a dismal spring of replacement failures. Now Lee and ABC are looking forward to a fall that lacks a clear presumptive hit, though presumptive hit status only did a little for "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." last year. And probably "How To Get Away With Murder" has the pedigree to succeed, while "Black-ish" has the lead-in to succeed. Click through and follow along for Lee's full discussion of why the ABC Brand is still strong and why we're overstating the network's struggles last season. 10 a.m. We started today with ABC Family -- No, "Bunheads" isn't coming back »

Tiger Woods still has another 20 years of golf left in him ... and Will Win Again ... so says golf junkie Anthony Anderson. The "Black-ish" star -- who also hosts "Golf in America" on the Golf Channel -- was leaving Lax yesterday when we asked if he thinks Tiger will ever regain his pre-divorce, skeezer-heavy, championship form. For the record, people have been Trashing Woods in the media -- his former swing coach says he simply doesn't care about the game anymore. »

The captain of The Matrix’s Nebuchadnezzar hovercraft is great at fighting in slo-mo and giving exposition. But is he funny? The answer’s a definite “yes”—at least, according to Anthony Anderson, who stars with Laurence Fishburne (a.k.a. Morpheus) in the upcoming sitcom Blackish. “Laurence started out on Pee Wee’s Playhouse back in the day,” the actor told Essence magazine at this past weekend’s Essence Fest. “People forget about his sense of humor and his comedic timing and abilities.”

What can’t the great Melissa McCarthy do? The 43-year-old actress—whose style of go-for-broke physical comedy is at once wild and grounded, brash and vulnerable—opens movies. She gets awards love.
