black-ish First Look: Wanda Sykes Takes Charge, Faizon Love Moves In

black-ish‘s Dre better straighten up and fly right, because there’s a new boss in the office… and she’s played by Wanda Sykes.

The exclusive photos below, from the Dec. 2 episode (ABC, 9:30/8:30c), show the New Adventures of Old Christine star as Daphne Lido, the ex-wife of Dre’s firm’s founding partner. When Daphne gets control of half of the company and decides to become a strong presence in the office, she quickly calls Charlie’s work ethic into question. Whose side will Dre choose: the new boss lady or his old pal?

It’s not like things get any easier at home, either. Dre’s childhood friend Sha (played by Faizon LoveThe Parent ‘Hood) comes to stay at the house for a few days, leading Bow to think he’s taking advantage of Dre’s generosity.

    Is this a permanent addition to the supporting cast?

    • Tom says:

      I really hope it’s a one shot guest stint because I normally can’t stand her. She was good on Alpha House and in Clerks 2 but normally she’s just too abrasive for my tastes

      • David4 says:

        I somewhat agree. She is great, but in small amounts. I hope she will just pop up from time to time. The show is nearly perfect as it currently is.

        • Skyler says:

          She was hilarious in The New Adventures of Old Christine. Looking forward to seeing her in the show. Should be interesting.

            Thank for your comments. We really don’t care for her. She’s the same on EVERY show! I hope Charlie will come back!!

    I absolutely love blackish!!! I certainly hope and pray that Wanda Sykes is not a permanent fixture. Not a fan at all.
