Since Black-ish‘s historic debut on ABC, being the first black sit-com to grace the airwaves in five years, it has held its high esteem both in the black community and the entertainment industry alike. The show equally acknowledged “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show‘s” cherished cultural position in a season 2 episode, entitled “Twindepence,” which aired on February 18th, 2016.
Jenifer Lewis‘ character, who plays the mother of Andre (played by Anthony Anderson), exclaimed that she “just programmed all [her] AM church stations and [her] Rickey Smiley!” on all the presets on the car radio. Such a reference on a primetime television show, whose reach is undeniably wide, certainly confirms the significance of The Rickey Smiley Morning Show in homes (and cars) nationwide!
