10 Things We Learned at ABC’s 2015–2016 Upfront Presentation

12 May 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At ABC's upfront, a few truths held true: Constance Wu can steal any show, diversity is TV's favorite new buzzword, and Montel Jordan still makes every woman in the room dance. Ahead, the Things We Learned at the network's presentation.ABC isn’t scared of diversity, and it really wants you to know.Jimmy Kimmel devoted a lot of his set to jokes about diversity, namely: how much ABC has it! “We’re doing very well now that we started acknowledging that minorities exist,” said Kimmel. “Except The Bachelor, we’re going to keep that one white.” The network is adding two other sitcoms led by nonwhite actors to its roster: Uncle Buck, a black reboot of the John Candy original, starring Mike Epps; and Ken Jeong’s Dr. Ken. (The network played this up by having Epps and Jeong “confuse” one another as the stars of Black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat. »

Critics’ Choice TV Award Nominations Spotlight Justified, Silicon Valley, and More

6 May 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ah, the Critics' Choice Awards. Or more accurately, "what you wish the Emmy nominations looked like." Like the Emmys, HBO features heavily in the list this year (27 nominations), but unlike the Emmys, so does the very deserving FX (16 nominations). Even the CW gets a look-in here, along with individual and fantastic series like Wolf Hall (PBS) and Rectify (Sundance). The list may still not be perfect, but it's pretty darn close. The 5th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards, held by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, will be broadcast live on May 31st at 8 p.m. on A&E. Check out the full list of nominees below: Best comedy series Broad City (Comedy Central) Jane the Virgin (The CW) Mom (CBS) Silicon Valley (HBO) Transparent (Amazon) Veep (HBO) You’re the Worst (FX) [caption id="attachment_410423" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Fox[/caption] Best actor in a comedy series Anthony Anderson, Blackish (ABC) Chris Messina, The Mindy Project (Fox) Jeffrey Tambor, »

Save This Show: Why We Need More Fresh Off The Boat

22 April 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It may be overreacting to start a campaign for ABC to renew Fresh Off the Boat since its ratings have actually been decent throughout the season, and ABC hasn't renewed any of its shows yet. But just in case there is any doubt, it's essential to make a case for the fact that this show both needs and deserves to stay on the air. There is, of course, the fact that this is finally a show about an Asian-American family. In the series' penultimate episode of its first season, "Dribbling Tiger, Bounce Pass Dragon," Jessica (the exceptional Constance Wu) spends most of the episode convincing her two youngest sons, Emery (Forrest Wheeler) and Evan (Ian Chen) not to pursue the dead-end career of acting. "They'll never put two Asians together on a TV show," she says to them. Then in the end, the family sits down to watch Margaret Cho »

Fresh Off the Boat Recap: All Hail Jessica Huang

24 March 2015 8:43 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Week after week (well, at least the weeks that Fresh Off the Boat airs; I was surprised at how much I missed it last Tuesday), Constance Wu’s performance as Jessica continues to be the highlight of the series. There’s something fiercely effortless about Wu’s on-point delivery and the way she routinely and deftly navigates Jessica Huang. With less skilled writing and acting, Jessica could easily fall into the trap of a stereotypical overbearing “Tiger Mom” (which could do more harm than good when it comes to representation) but instead, Jessica is sweetly stern, with clear motives for everything she says and does. And, as we learned with Louis in “Showdown at Cattleman’s Ranch,” these motives mostly have to do with ensuring that everyone in her family is happy and successful. The greatness of “License to Sell” (besides the obvious Beastie Boys reference in the title, of »

Fresh Off the Boat: Cancel or Keep the New ABC Sitcom?

3 March 2015 7:41 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The alphabet network has had mixed luck launching new sitcoms this season. Manhattan Love Story and Selfie have already been cancelled due to low ratings while Black-ish is on track to be renewed for a second season. How's Fresh Off the Boat been doing? Does it have a chance at returning next fall?

On Fresh Off the Boat, a Taiwanese family moves from Chinatown in Washington, DC to Orlando, Florida. They open a steak restaurant and experience serious culture shock while pursuing the American Dream. The family members are played by Randall Park, Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, and Ian Chen.

Fresh Off the Boat: Season One Ratings

25 February 2015 12:32 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

This season, ABC found ratings success with their new sitcom Black-ish and is sure to be renewed for a second season. How will Fresh Off The Boat perform? Cancelled or season two? We'll have to wait and see.

On Fresh Off the Boat, a Taiwanese family moves from Chinatown in Washington, DC to Orlando, Florida. They open a steak restaurant and experience serious culture shock while pursuing the American Dream. The family members are played by Randall Park, Constance Wu, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, and Ian Chen.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

If you were to turn to the dictionary entry for “dead tired,” the illustration accompanying the definition would probably look a lot like the survivors on The Walking Dead did this week. They were exhausted, hungry, dehydrated and, worst of all, demoralized. But then, something happened that promised to change everything. Wanna know what that something was? Keep reading…

The Performer | Constance Wu

The Show | Fresh Off the Boat

The Episode | “The Shunning”

The Airdate | Feb. 10, 2015

The Performance | Fresh Off the Boat’s sassy matriarch Jessica Huang sees the world a bit differently than most.

She prefers the Black Friday-esque hustle and bustle of Taiwanese markets to the quiet, fluorescent-lit grocery stores of Orlando, Fla. She’d rather enjoy a heated game of poker with her Washington, D.C. girlfriends than gossip with suburban Rollerblade moms.

5 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Fresh Off the Boat premiered Wednesday with 7-plus million viewers and a positive response from audiences and critics alike. However, for a juggernaut like ABC, that's still a lot of eyeballs missing from a show that just may be the best new comedy of 2015.

The series opens with the Huangs moving from Washington, D.C., to Orlando, Florida, so that patriarch Louis (Randall Park) can fulfill his dream of opening a steak restaurant. As he goes all-in in his embrace of the American Dream, »
