Who’s Watching Fresh Off the Boat?

BY: GURU JAY 


Who’s watching Fresh Off the Boat? Last night I tuned in and wasn’t disappointed. If you want to be entertained, check out Fresh Off the Boat.

I see Dr. Ken regularly. Now, Fresh Off the Boat is my new favorite sitcom. This season, the Fresh Off the Boat crewmates are rocking in the same boat. No one is jumping ship either because tides are running high.

ABC is doing a good job catering to a diverse population. Modern Family, The Goldbergs, and Blackish are cornerstones of the established TV network. With a little more marketing, Fresh Off the Boat could improve its ratings.


I believe Constance Wu is a beautiful Asian actress. If I were running this show, I would broadcast her image and likeness everywhere. Also, she’ll get more lines under my production and direction.

It’s difficult trying to increase a TV show’s ratings. It’s a brutally competitive business.  The best way to boost ratings is through innovation.

Like many comedy shows, Fresh Off follows a formula. If we add a variable, then we should expect a different outcome. Maybe, adding a few more recurring characters can do the trick. For instance, comedian Margaret Cho (Dr. Wendi) plays Ken Jeong’s sister.

Right now, Randall Park (Louis Huang) and Hudson Yang (Eddie) carry the weight of the TV show. I don’t propose changing this father and son dynamic. However, we must utilize all of our available resources in order to produce the most profitable situation.

I promise you’ll have fun watching Fresh Off the Boat because of all the creativity. The latest episode was called “Huangsgiving.” Constance Wu’s character (Jessica) was chosen by her mother to “host” Thanksgiving. I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it. You can watch the full episode by visiting hereGive thanks.
