    Watched the pilot and hated it. Had to talk my wife into giving the second episode a look. Made it about 10 minutes in and cancelled the SP. Awful show.

    First of all, in my opinion, the show is made up of a bunch of supporting actors with no one capable of carrying a show.

    I didn't identify with anyone and didn't find anyone I liked.

    It feels like since Fresh of the Boat is a good show, they thought "Hey, let's make another show about an Asian family". They are trying to bake a cake by looking at the finished picture without knowing what the ingredients are.

    My wife likes more sitcoms than I do, so she watched this without me. She said she made it to the first commercial break and then bailed on it.

    I thought it was a bit forced and contrived, with a lot of clich├ęs. But at the same time, some of the jokes were funny when he was being sarcastic. I'll watch it a couple more times.

    The show is cheesey and nothing great, but I enjoy it. I've seen the first 2 episodes and will stick with it for now.

    This series feels like something that would be on TV Land.

    I bet the lead has had a deal for his own show for a while now, due to his fame from the Hangover movies & Community. I think the Fresh off the Boat idea is a bit simplistic.

    I'm still watching. I like the humor. I thought this weeks Halloween episode was hilarious. Clear up to the end. The end had me literally laughing out loud.

    Gave it a couple of episodes and then bailed. Mildly funny at times but mostly painful to watch. Too many shows on the DVR to waste time on this one.

    I like Ken Jeong, but he's best taken in small doses. Like in over-the-top movies. Where he can really let go.

    I still think it is getting better and better. Terrific Halloween show.

    It has been picked up for a full season.

    I think the comedy has picked up a bit and the show has settled in.
