I'd like to think that in 2014 we could all agree that fish-out-of-water comedy based on race has been done to death. It's not edgy. It's far from unique. It has to be very good to be even close to funny. It's the television equivalent of a black stand-up comic starting a joke with "So white dudes be like..." It's hack, is what it is. So when I heard the title of Anthony Anderson's latest series, I was already assuming the show would be highly missable. Then I sat through the trailer, and my suspicions were immediately confirmed. Anderson had a big ol' swing-and-a-miss with NBC's largely horrendous Guys With Kids, and I expect that this upcoming ABC series will meet the same fate.
