Black-ish season 1, episode 17 airs tonight on ABC.
Things begin to fall apart, in more ways than one, when Dre’s 40th birthday approaches. As Dre worries that he’s getting too old to be cool, Bow and Ruby compete over getting him the best gift, while the kids face their own present dilemma.
Andre “Dre” Johnson (Anthony Anderson) has a great job; a beautiful wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross); four kids and a colonial home in the ‘burbs. But has success brought too much assimilation for this Black family? With a little help from his dad (Laurence Fishburne), Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future.
Black-ish season 1, episode 17 airs March 25 at 9:30 p.m. EDT on ABC.
