Everybody’s favorite mother figure is joining one of our new favorite shows, “black-ish” as, you guessed it a mother.
Jenifer Lewis is joining the cast as Dre (Anthony Anderson’s) overbearing mother, Ruby.
The network described Ruby as such: “She smothers pork chops with gravy, Dre with love, and would like to flat out smother Rainbow [Dre’s wife, Tracee Ellis Ross], who feels the same way about her.”
Lewis will make her first appearance later this season.
“black-ish” which airs directly after the Emmy darling, “Modern Family,” drew 11 million viewers last week during its premiere and retained 96 and 85 percent of “Modern Family’s” viewers.
I happen to love the show and after the premiere I was thinking Lewis would be a welcome addition.
