March Madness: Broad City vs. Blackish

We posted our Gr8ful 8 Saturday, revealing the four matchups against the remaining eight shows. In our top left quadrant are Broad City and Blackish, two comedies unlike the other.

Blackish is a family sitcom on ABC, following the standard family format and using it to present comedy on race, gender, and class. Broad City is a sitcom in the vein of sketch, using odd situations to emphasize the feminist struggle.

Both do well with fans and critics, though only Broad City has resulted in a fan getting kicked off a plane.

Episodes of Blackish and Broad City are available online. Vote for your favorite shows here. Results post Friday!
