Kenya Barris, the creator of black-ish, thinks his show black-ish should win an Emmy this year. He could be biased.
The Black-ish spin-off that Jezebel superstar Kara R. Brown left us for to become a staff writer has a new title and it’s Grown-Ish, as in (if I must explain): “This is grown people’s ish/shit.”
My favorite family show Black-ish made a misstep with last night’s episode, which featured Chris Brown in a guest role as a cliché rapper named Rich Youngsta, an appearance that served no purpose.
A Black-ish spinoff starring the eldest daughter, Zoey, is reportedly in early development.
Black-ish transformed last night’s iconic Trump episode, “Lemons,” into a play-by-play rundown of the country’s emotions and passions on and after election night, and as usual the points made were comedically poignant and often brilliant. But I’m still grappling with how the episode ended.
Just three months after receiving her first Emmy for her work on ABC’s Black-ish, Tracee Ellis Ross has received her first Golden Globe. After nearly two decades appearing on television (she starred in BET’s highly successful Girlfriends for eight years), it’s about time.
Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth made a cameo as herself in last night’s episode of black-ish, the topic of which hit close to home for many of us—white privilege and white people benefiting from nepotism.
In episode two of its third season last night, Black-ish tried to carve through the idea of atheism and religious hypocrisy among black people, and while it did so in unprecedented fashion for a primetime family show, it’s a shame there was little room to be more offensive.
Apparently, Stephen Colbert loves asking cast members of the TV show Black-ish what such a bizarre, incomprehensible word could mean. He’s heard “black” before, and the colloquial add-on “ish,” but combined? Luckily for him, Tracee Ellis Ross has both patience and the desire to promote her show.
In any discussions about diversity, people of color tend to bear the burden of the conversation when it should be the other way around. Black-ish creator and writer Kenya Barris was openly perturbed about this issue during a recent panel.

Whenever I see a kid pop up in a film or TV show I’m watching, I’m usually like, “Whoa, kid, get off my screen.” Because most children are terrible actors. They don’t understand the craft.
Despite becoming a cultural phenomenon at home, shows like Empire aren’t attracting the same number of viewers abroad, leading some to believe that the world just isn’t ready for African American stories outside of America. But it’s not that simple: the business of television is changing.
Sunday night’s episode of The Carmichael Show opens with talk of a condom breaking, after which the show’s lead, Jerrod Carmichael, excitedly supports his girlfriend Maxine taking a Plan B pill. Later, he consoles his mom, who hates the idea, telling her, “Stop acting like we’re killing a baby. We’re not. We’re…
Part of me was hoping that Wednesday night’s episode of Black-ish would give me the Magic Words: the exact right things to say to my daughter when she starts asking me about institutionalized racism. It didn’t, because, really, how could it?
Conversations about “nigga” tend to sputter to a stop. Inevitably, generational divides and stout beliefs come into play, but the focus is always on who gets to say it and why. We then debate about whether these debates, as prevalent as the word itself, are even worth having. They definitely are, especially when done…
There’s a chance Obama could be making a future appearance on the show Black-ish. Anthony Anderson told E! he was petitioning for the president and first lady to guest star. “They watch the show. They love it. We know them so we’ve been dealing with them and their people and hopefully they’ll say yes.” Anderson found…
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s married life is so fascinating that it’s now inspired a sitcom. Love is alive, sheeple.
In an episode that graciously skated around party politics, Wednesday night’s Black-ish took on the notion of the rare Black Republican. The problematic issue at hand: Junior joining the Young Republicans Club.
