Fresh off the boat

Tonight, comedy Fresh Off The Boat premieres on ABC, with two new episodes airing at 8:30 and 9:30PM before the show moves to its regular timeslot in ABC’s deadzone – Tuesday at 8PM. Critics love the show and the Wednesday telecasts are designed to get it exposure on ABC’s big comedy night. The 9:30PM episode was scheduled before Empire began slaying everything in its path from 9-10PM on Wednesdays. Last fall, The Goldbergs season two premiere delivered a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating at 8:30PM. The black-ish series premiere garnered a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating, benefitting from following the season premiere of Modern Family which earned a 3.9 adults 18-49 rating. So how do you think the show’s premiere episode at 8:30PM will fare? Make your predictions!
