Storyline

In her sixth year of law school, Cristela is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate. She's stuck straddling the old culture she's trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she's trying to embrace in her professional career. Breakout comedian Cristela Alonzo stars in this hilarious comedy about laughing your way down the path to the new American dream. Written by ABC Publicity

Ruined the show
9 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the better new sitcoms that made a change for the worse tonight. I really enjoy the family moments the best. The one liners are witty and humorous. Cristela is a welcome new face to evening entertainment and the mother and sister add a truly fun touch to the entire show. The addition of Rosanne was a tremendous mistake. The want to be comedian took all of the comedy out of tonight's show. I hope this was a one time appearance so the show can resume its roll as a good evening sitcom. I have had my DVR set to record it in the event I wasn't available to watch it but if Rosanne is a continuing cast member I will stop watching all together.
