the asians on tv: new fall 2012-13 shows



I've been meaning to post this for several weeks... So the new fall television season is well underway, and that means we're seeing some Asian faces on new shows. Well, I watch a lot of TV, and as you know, I am particularly interested in seeing more Asian folks on the tube. So...

For your reference, I have compiled a running list of Asian actors in the starring casts of new scripted prime time network television shows. Some of the shows have premiered, others won't be on until midseason, and some actually have already been canceled (like I said, I meant to post this sooner).

Check it out:
