If 'Fresh Off The Boat' had the 'Full House' theme song

Season five premieres October 5 as part of ABC's re-launched "TGIF" lineup.



The Huang family is back! Fresh Off The Boat returns for its landmark fifth season on October 5, premiering in its new Friday night time slot, holding down the re-launch of ABC's iconic "TGIF" programming block.

And it appears they're fully embracing their Friday night responsibilities, invoking one of TGIF's flagship legacy shows, Full House, for a funny bit in this week's premiere. In this scene, Louis imagines his family by way of a beloved 1990s family sitcom's opening credits -- complete with the Full House theme song.

Yes, that's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. In this week's episode, entitled "Fresh Off The RV," Louis buys an RV from the Los Angeles Lakers great, with the excited hopes of driving across the country to promote the release of Jessica's new novel. Meanwhile, Emery and Evan are concerned about Eddie after Nicole tells him that she's moving to New York, and he seems completely unfazed about losing his best friend.

Inspired by a true story, Fresh Off the Boat stars Randall Park as Louis Huang, Constance Wu as Jessica Huang, Hudson Yang as Eddie Huang, Forrest Wheeler as Emery Huang, Ian Chen as Evan Huang, Lucille Soong as Grandma Huang, Chelsey Crisp as Honey and Ray Wise as Marvin.

Fresh Off The Boat airs Friday nights at 8:00pm on ABC.
