WHERE: ABC

BOTTOM LINE: Who the hell knows? ABC’s publicity department doesn’t know how to cobble together a decent first look? I’m blown away with the randomness. That being said, I love Ross and am happy to see her getting work. Anderson is annoying, but always has been. It could do well bridging the gap between Modern Family and Nashville, but I don’t know… just depends on how Cosby-ish they decide to go.

blackishWhat do you think, gonna watch it?
