Hometown son Eddie Huang's show Huang's World, long a web viewing staple, premieres tonight (April 28) on Viceland, Vice's new cable channel. (We've written about Eddie, uh, a few times before.) This'll be the second season of Huang's World and the first on "real" TV.

Here's the trailer; catch the first episode at 10 p.m.: 

Here's a link to the full web ep of his show from last season focused on Orlando – definitely worth a watch, if only to see the inside of one of those Windermere McMansions we all drive past on the regular.



Also, check out the cover art for his new book, Double Cup Love (out May 31) below, and stay tuned for our review of the book in our May 25 issue. Huang described his inspo for the cover to Vulture like this:

"I started imagining what it would look like if Grimace from McDonald's overdosed on Actavis but right before he fell out got stabbed by O.J. and then run over by an Uber Pool — or no, a Chevy Volt Lyft. Grimace would get bodied by a Chevy Volt Lyft and then mumble passages from the book with his last breath: words about epic love, race in America, the motherland, opiates, Fast Food Formalism, and a takedown of the sharing economy."
