The new debut of the Asian-American sitcom, Fresh Off the Boat, has started a conversation of Asian-Americans in tv. This is one of the first successful Asian-American sitcoms since the 90s. So here is a of list seven Asian-American television shows that didn't quite make it in television. Some of these shows only lasted one season and some never lasted at all. Hope you all enjoy!
