Surf or Stay? ABC's 'black-ish'

Surf or Stay? ABC's 'black-ish'
ABC Hilarious-ish? Disappointing-ish? We're anxious to hear your thoughts on the season premiere of black-ish.

While we certainly commend ABC for its diverse fall line-up (and let us tell you, you are certainly in for a treat with the midseason series Fresh Off the Boat), we're just not finding the sitcom to be half as funny as its Wednesday night companion, Modern Family. That being said, it's difficult to judge from a first episode and there are certainly moments of promise. Andre's children, for example, are particularly adorable and funny as they quickly defy their father's sudden demands for the family to be more "black." We also enjoyed seeing fresh-faced Yara Shahidi, who we interviewed and featured as part of our fall TV preview
The network obviously sees a lot of potential by positioning its comedy heavyweight as the lead-in, but will that be enough to bring in the audience and keep this show afloat?
