Participants: Jon M. Chu, Filmmaker; Eddie Huang, Writer, Director, and Chef; Ken Jeong, Actor, Comedian, and Producer; Susan Li, FOX Business Correspondent; Jeremy Lin, NBA Champion; Olivia Munn, Actress and Activist; Charles Yu, Author, Interior Chinatown.

This series began as The $10,000 Pyramid and saw inflationary incarnations that included top prizes of $20,000, $25,000, and $50,000, and I think in some ways, at its best, it is the most exciting, purest game-show ever.
Fresh Off the Boat and Dr. Ken may take place in different cities and different time periods, but that’s not stopping the stars of the shows from appearing on the other. The ABC comedies both feature predominantly Asian casts, which was unheard of until Fresh Off the Boat debuted last year. Then, last fall, the network debuted Dr. Ken, which stars The Hangover star Ken Jeong as a fictionalized version of himself. Since then, the shows have had several cast crossovers — Dr. Ken’s TV son, Albert Tsai, has appeared several times on FOTB, while that comedy’s youngest kid Ian Chen recently did a cameo on the Dr. Ken. Now, the dads are getting involved.
The doctor is in the Fresh Off the Boat house! ABC’s two Asian family sitcoms are crossing over again, with Dr. Ken star Ken Jeong making a guest appearance on Fresh Off the Boat in May.

Overhearing co-star Jonathan Slavin (who plays nurse Clark) gush about his boss’ work ethic, Jeong sidles up with an explanation: “It is all about F.D.D., functional day drinking. Mine starts with, ‘We used to scope so well together and now your hands are so shaky…’” Related: ‘Dr. Ken’: First Look at TV Siblings Ken Jeong and Margaret Cho Before you prep yourself for a very special episode of Dr. Ken, know that Jeong is not in any danger of needing rehab.
