ABC is desperate to boost ratings for Black-ish spinoff Grown-ish, starring Yara Shahidi as college freshman Zoey Johnson. The first 2 episodes received low ratings and negative reviews, mostly due to Yara's annoying narration and all around bad acting by her supporting cast.
A New York Times' TV critic says Grown-ish is "still finding its identity" -- that's the mark of death in TV critic lingo.
So ABC/Freeform is pinning their hopes on a new character: Cassius "Cash" Mooney, played by tall, dark and handsome newcomer Abraham D. Juste.
Abraham, who goes by the nickname da'Vinchi in real life, plays a star shooting guard on the basketball team at Zoey's mythical California University. He instantly catches Zoey's eye when he asks for directions to the library, and the two hit it off.
Episode 3 of the Black-ish spinoff Grown-ish picks up where episode 2 left off with that cliffhanger "U UP?" text to Zoey (Yara Shahidi) from Aaron (Trevor Jackson) at 2 A.M.
Zoey and Trevor hook up at a dorm party where she shares her first ever tongue kiss. Zoey and Aaron slow grind to rapper French Montana's "Unforgettable".
Afterwards, Zoey receives another early morning booty call text from Aaron.
ABC's Black-ish spin-off, Grown-ish, debuted to low ratings on Freeform, ABC's Family Network, on Wednesday. Freeform aired 2 episodes of Grown-ish, starring Yara Shahidi and Francia Raisa, as college students trying to make their way in the world.
The new series drew low ratings despite heavy marketing and promotion on major network talk shows and popular social media platforms.
Grown-ish follows 17-year-old Zoey Johnson (Shahidi) as she leaves home and heads off to college where she and other millennials party, chase boys, talk politics, and tackle social justice issues.
Instagram model Cassie was spotted showing off her toned bikini bod while hanging out poolside at her luxury hotel in Miami. Why isn't she at music mogul Sean Combs' Star Island mansion, you ask? The reason she's not there is because his kids are there. And if his kids are there, that means his baby mamas are there. And Cassie is still not invited to be a part of their clique. It's a lonely life being a kept Instagram model.

Actress Meagan Good was spotted arriving at a hair salon in Beverly Hills. Meagan spoke her mind on the news that former President Barack Obama asked a Caucasian woman to marry him before he met Michelle Obama. "Oh… Nice," Meagan responded. Then she suggested that if Barack Obama had married his white ex-girlfriend, it wouldn't have killed him at the polls. Obama's ex-girlfriend, Sheila Miyoshi Jager, claims was "hell-bent on marrying an African-American woman to benefit his political career." But we already knew that.

Actress Yara Shahidi attended ABC's Black-ish FYC event at Television Academy in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The 17-year-old was accepted to every college she applied to. Not to take anything away from Yara, but pretty much everyone is accepted to IVY League schools or prominent HBCUs. There used to be a strict criteria for admission to the top schools. But thanks to the whiny Democrats, colleges accept everyone to avoid hurting the feelings of sensitive snowflakes. The standards for admission are so low now. It won't be long before colleges stop issuing grades altogether. Everyone will graduate simply for showing up.
