Blackish was not the first African American family on TV, but it is one of the few that are aired on a prime time TV channel (Uwire). After the success of Blackish, ABC created shows that focused on other races. Jane the Virgin is a successful comedy about a woman becoming pregnant while still being a virgin. Fresh off the boat is about Chinese family who relocates from Chinatown in Washington DC to Orlando.
It is refreshing to see minority shows on Channels, other than Lifetime, TLC, BET, VH1 and centric. Most minority shows are reality shows that paint people in a negative light. Love and Hip Hop (Bet), Shahs of sunset (Bravo), or the show places into stereotypes, Queen of the South (USA), and the Tyrant ( FX).
