Asians on TV! Lots of them! Here's another one of these articles on the growing, significant number of Asians on prime time television in high profile roles, citing the usual recent examples like Sandra Oh on Grey's Anatomy and Masi Oka on Heroes: Asia Major. There's a quote in there from everybody's favorite Asian American media activist Guy Aoki, who's been around long enough to see big changes. While there's still a long way to go, you've got to admit we've seen a great deal of the progress of the last couple of years. Like Margaret Cho recently joked, "It used to be that you might find one Asian guy on a show, if we were lucky. Now sometimes there's actually two!" (Okay, it was a lot funnier when she said it.)
