Preview tonight’s black-ish Christmas episode “Black Santa/White Christmas,” airing at 9:30pmET on ABC.
The Thanksgiving episode of black-ish was awesome, particularly because of the relationship between Mama Ruby Johnson (Jenifer Lewis) and Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross). I thought these two were hilarious together. By the end of the episode, I was hoping Mama Ruby would come back and we would learn more about her backstory. Well, wishes come true because Ruby will also be spending the Christmas holiday with the Johnsons! In tonight’s episode “Black Santa/White Christmas”:
Certain that his annual office Christmas party needs a black Santa, Dre goes out of his way to fill the red suit, even though the head of HR already got the job. Meanwhile, Bow doesn’t feel like competing with Ruby over who cooks the big holiday dinner. (via TV Guide)
Take a look that this sneak peek from tonight’s show–Dre (Anthony Anderson) is pretty adamant about the importance of having a Black Santa. Bow and Ruby don’t necessarily agree with Dre, but they certainly bond over another figure in pop culture:
I appreciate Dre’s thoughts that all kids should be able to see a Santa that looks like them. Of course Jack (Miles Brown) and Diane (Marsai Martin) add humor to the scene (as they do) by making sure that even though Dre might be Santa’s helper, the “real Santa” will be bringing the gifts on Christmas Day. And you know I’m 100% agreeing with Bow and Mama Ruby about how Idris Elba would be a SENSATIONAL James Bond 😉
