Watch Offset and Cardi B Do Anything—Like Translate Their Lyrics—for 'Clout'

Watch Offset and Cardi B Do Anything—Like Translate Their Lyrics—for 'Clout'

Contrary to popular belief, I’m actually pretty damn old.

Sure, the gift of melanin means my black has yet to crack, but I’ve been in bed by like 8 p.m. every day this week, my sciatic nerve is well past its prime, and I have no idea what the hell “no cap” even means.

So I’d like to take the time to thank Kiari Cephus and Belcalis Almanzar, better known to you young whippersnappers as hip-hop...

Katt Williams Will Bring His Freshly Permed Follicles to the Set of <i>Black-ish </i>in New Role

Comeback King Katt Williams is on a roll—and he has a new role.

“It’s Katt’s big chance, maybe his last chance at a real comeback!” a source told In Touch. Though the comedian has been previously plagued with drug and crime issues, the source also added that Williams is “sober, he’s on his best behavior and the cast loves him.”

Just recently, Williams was arrested for allegedly assaulting a...

Malik Yoba Will Reprise Role in ‘New York Undercover’ Reboot at ABC

While I’ve made it my mission in life to ignore the resurrections of Murphy Brown, Full House, and other televised ghosts from primetime past, we finally have a reboot I might actually watch.

While we’ve previously reported that New York Undercover will be making its triumphant return in the near future, Variety reports that a familiar face will be returning as well—that of detective JC...

ABC Passes On New York Undercover Reboot, but It Could Return to Original Home at Fox

ABC Passes On New York Undercover Reboot, but It Could Return to Original Home at Fox

Looks like Eddie Torres’ (Michael DeLorenzo) so-called return from the dead may not be so smooth. But, there’s still hope.

According to Deadline, ABC has decided to pass on the pilot of popular 1990s cop drama reboot New York Undercover. However, all hope is not lost, since its studio, Universal TV is shopping it around.

It’s upfront season—as in, when TV executives gather to market their...

ABC Can't Get Enough Black-ish, Renewing Hit Show and Adding Spinoff, Mixed-ish

Take Rainbow, Tracee Ellis Ross’ eclectic character from Black-ish, but make her a teenage.

That’s the concept behind the popular ABC sitcom’s spinoff prequel, Mixed-ish, which the network just handed out an early series order for, according to The Hollywood Reporter. ABC also confirmed it’s renewing the hit comedy for a sixth season.

Here’s what we know about Mixed-ish so far:

Reverse Aunt Viv? Tika Sumpter to Portray Young Rainbow’s Mama in Black-ish Spinoff

Reverse Aunt Viv? Tika Sumpter to Portray Young Rainbow’s Mama in Black-ish Spinoff

Fans of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will never forget the moment Aunt Vivian joined Team Lightskin after having a baby. Is that a WebMD side effect, by the way?

Well, the flip side of that is happening with ABC’s Black-ish. Sort of.

Per Deadline:

Workaholic co-creator Anders Holm, The Haves and the Have Nots star Tika Sumpter and Arica Himmel (Before You Know It) lead the cast of Black-ish‘s...

Baby Bow? Black-ish Prequel Based on Tracee Ellis Ross' Character May Be in the Works

Black-ish is spinning off! Well, it may be ... again.

Grown-ish, the ABC sitcom’s Freeform spin-off focusing on the college life of Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi), has been quite successful. So, the parent show may be birthing an additional baby, so to speak.

According to Deadline, executive producer Peter Saji is in talks to cook up a prequel to Black-ish centered around Rainbow Johnson (Tracee...

‘Black Like Us’: Black-ish Finally Tackles the Elephant in the Room—Colorism 

Black-ish certainly has a way of evoking conversation on social media—its Season Four-opening “Juneteenth” episode is the best and most recent example of that phenomenon. After a recent conversation with its showrunners, I have a feeling this Tuesday night’s episode will do the same.

New York Undercover Is Getting a Reboot. Here Is Where Detective Eddie Torres May Have Been, Instead of Dead

New York Undercover Is Getting a Reboot. Here Is Where Detective Eddie Torres May Have Been, Instead of Dead

It looks officially official: New York Undercover is coming back. A deal has been struck for a pilot production with ABC. If you’ll remember back in the ’90s, New York Undercover was a FOX television show, following Martin and Living Single on Thursday nights in that murderer’s row of black television watch-hood. The show followed the lives and detective work of NYPD Detectives J.C. Williams...

The Midterms Makeover: Donna Brazile’s Glam Squad Talks About Her Epic Transformation

Black women were big winners during the 2018 midterm elections, but there was one we couldn’t keep our eyes off as the results rolled in. After keeping a slightly lower profile since the fallout following the Democratic National Committee debacles of 2016 , Donna Brazile reemerged with a stunning new look last Tuesday, replacing her well-known cropped curls and typically fresh face with a...

Unemployed Comedian Comes Up With Another Excuse for Valerie Jarrett Tweet: 'I Thought the Bitch Was White'

Unemployed Comedian Comes Up With Another Excuse for Valerie Jarrett Tweet: 'I Thought the Bitch Was White'

Updated Friday, July 20 at 1:34 PM EDT: Well, here’s a predictable plot twist.

TMZ reports Roseanne Barr will host her own “talk show” on her YouTube channel—and that clip of her screaming about how she thought Valerie Jarett was white was just a sample of what’s to come.

She’ll be talking to close friends and family, so fans (or whoever’s going to watch this never-ending dumpster fire) can get...

Michael Cohen to Trump: I'm Ready to Flip Like the Last Black-Owned Home in a Gentrified Neighborhood

Michael Cohen to Trump: I'm Ready to Flip Like the Last Black-Owned Home in a Gentrified Neighborhood

On Monday, depending on what you believe, President Donald Trump’s longtime personal fixer Michael Cohen is either ready to flip like Simone Biles doing an Olympic floor routine or he’s still sending smoke signals to Trump to pay for his attorneys if he doesn’t want him to sing like Rufus featuring Chaka Khan.

Cohen told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, “My wife, my daughter and my son have my...

ABC Is Trying to Figure Out How to Keep Profiting Off Roseanne’s Brand Without Involving Roseanne: Report

ABC Is Trying to Figure Out How to Keep Profiting Off Roseanne’s Brand Without Involving Roseanne: Report

ABC canceled Roseanne on Tuesday after its star Roseanne Barr sent out a tweet saying that former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was the child of the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. Although Roseanne would later claim it wasn’t, everyone with a brain knew that the tweet was racist, and ABC acted accordingly.

The network—more specifically, ABC Entertainment President Channing...

The Top 7 Moments We Did Not See Coming on This Week’s HTGAWM

The Top 7 Moments We Did Not See Coming on This Week’s HTGAWM

You can't touch Annalise (or her crew), and after another intense episode of How to Get Away With Murder, we discovered seven moments that reveal why you can't touch them. You can dive into the recap, but the short answer? You can't even come close to them because so much of what they do comes straight up out of the blue, and you didn't even see them coming.

Roseanne Doesn’t Normalize Trump-Supporting Racists. It’s a Documentary

<i>Roseanne </i>Doesn’t Normalize Trump-Supporting Racists. It’s a Documentary

Although I might be in the minority of black people, I am willing to admit that I love ABC’s reboot of Roseanne. I haven’t watched a single episode—nor do I plan to—but I like the idea that it exists.

As one of America’s foremost wypipologists, I didn’t enter this field of study because I find white people fascinating. Instead, I have always believed that the study of race and racism in...

‘I Gotta Go. And I Can’t Take Her With Me’: A Mother’s Love on This Is Us

‘I Gotta Go. And I Can’t Take Her With Me’: A Mother’s Love on <i>This Is Us</i>

Somehow, I didn’t realize that This Is Us had returned to my Tuesday nights. The last episode I saw was THE episode where Jack [CENSORED]. You know what? “[CENSORED]” means died. Bought the farm. Kicked the bucket. And any other euphemism for dying you can think of. Anyway, on Facebook, I saw somebody mention this past Tuesday night’s episode, so I promptly logged out and then watched the...
