**Please note that the criteria for this list [173 items] is not as well-defined or stringent as that of the movies list.**
Gap Year (2017- ) – Whites and an Asian girl take a trip to China (of course there’s no Asian male). They all go to a bar. Asian girl is treated unfairly by evil Asian-male bartender. When the Asian girl gets a banana-drink, they all think it’s an insult of the girl being a “banana” even though jokes about this were made prior; in reality it was drink for another client. White girl, who made a “banana” joke, comes to the rescue; this angers another evil misogynistic Asian male. Another case of Evil Asian Male Misogyny.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (2015- ) – Ki Hong Lee as accented “Dong Nyuen” who’s good at math. Also they have the audacity to shit on organizations that ask for better portrayal of Asians, and depict Asian men as overly insensitive. Fuck Tina Fey.
Difficult People (2015- ) – Casts straight John Cho as gay male. Erasure of Straight Asian Male Identity.
The Last Man on Earth (2015- ) – Amateur Asian pilot “Lewis” dies during his maiden voyage. Asian guy always dies.

Dr. Ken (2015- ) – One of the worst Uncle Chans in existence plays a doctor (stereotype).
Silicon Valley (2014- ) – Jimmy O. Yang plays “Jian Yang” (Perpetual Foreigner) who is unable to socially function and is extremely clueless all the time. Basically inhuman object for making jokes.
How to Get Away with Murder (2014- ) – Erasure of straight-Asian-male identity.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2013- ) – This entry does not add to the list count, as it is a developing story. Will be updated. An Asian-Male Extra was allegedly refused food on set; all the others got food and they mocked him. Better source. Lawsuit pending.
2 Broke Girls (2011- ) – Asian man depicted as extremely unmanly and undesirable (emasculation, asexualization). This show is famous for this amongst Asian men.

Making it in America (2010- ) – Title sequence features stereotypical Old Asian Cook.
The Middle (2009- ) – Matthew Moy as incredibly stereotypical foreign exchange student “Takayuki.”
The Big Bang Theory (2007- )- “Chen” is a stingy waiter at a Chinese restaurant in one episode. In another, Sheldon believes the restaurant’s tangerine chicken is deceptively being presented as orange chicken (stereotype of Chinese messing with food; knock-off stereotype). Sheldon also speaks Mandarin to him and Chen can’t understand him.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (2005- ) – In “Flowers for Charlie,” the Asian man (Jimmy O. Yang) “Tang-See” is more or a less a prop for comedy. He’s a scientist (stereotype) with a thick Chinese accent. The actor in real life has no such accent. Charlie Day speaks gibberish Chinese to this man.
Mock the Week (2005- ) – One of the performers says Korean meatballs are the “dog’s bollocks.” Wildly clever, but still relies on stereotypes. At least it was clever.
Arrested Development (2003- )
Ahn-Young” is over-used as the butt-end of a joke. Treats him like an accessory.
Also features William Hung. ”
Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000- )
The title of the episode “The Korean Bookie” is, no doubt, a racist callback to the film “The Killing of a Chinese Bookie” (1976).
In the episode Bobby Lee plays an accented Asian man who is suspected of eating a dog, which causes trouble for the protagonist.
In another episode, the show makes fun of Japanese cooks. Larry David then goes on to otherize an awkward Japanese guy by making a big deal about bowing and how people “in this country” don’t do so anymore.
He also makes a reference to a “big penis“; his reasons for doing so are obvious in this context.
The man also becomes extremely shifty and nervous as soon as Larry David prods further into the Japanese man’s grandfather being a kamikaze pilot (of course he was). Larry also calls the Japanese grandfather “chicken” for failing to die as kamikaze pilot.
SNL (1975- ) – Asian jokes to this day. Oh, and several instances of white-washing. Bonus: This skit involving parents touring Harvard only includes whites, African-Americans, and South Asians, but doesn’t include East Asians. lol.
Dave Chappelle: Deep in the Heart of Texas (2017) – Chappelle (married to a Filipino), excludes Asians from the racial “hot seat.” Essentially implying our racial plights are not worthy of mentioning, as they don’t even exist. Brought to you by Netflix.
Ali Wong: Baby Cobra (2016) – Asian woman tells the world that she fucked white men before marrying her Asian husband. Even a homeless one. Basically, outing herself as bananarang (an Asian woman who only has sex with white men in her youth, then settles down with a financially secure Asian man). Brought to you by Netflix.
Mad TV (1995-2016) – Bobby Lee is the proto-Ken Jeong. Sometimes he brings along his brother into this mess.
Make Happy (2016) – Bo Burnham rhymes “Mandarin” with “Mandolin.” An intelligent wordsmith like Bo Burnham would have known that he was doing (implied lallation). He also uses trope of the Chinese otherization (because the farthest thing from Western civilization is China). Brought to you by Netflix.
Community (2009-2015) – Sr. Chang and his Channerisms.
Glee (2009-2015) – Asian obstetrician (associating him with the feminine) “Dr. Wu” (Chinese) is stereotypical irritable and serious that sometimes gets threatened with malpractice lawsuits and tends to his bonsai tree (Japanese) to relax. He is played by Kenneth Choi (Korean).

How I Met Your Mother (2005-2014) – Ted Mosby does quasi-Yellowface.
The Office (2005-2013)
What white “creators” do not seem to get that is, even if you preface a joke with an understanding that it’s racist, if you make the joke at the expense of Asian men, it is still racist against Asian men.
In this knock-off of the British original, the main lead is inspired by Mr. Yunioshi from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961).
And in another scene, all kinds of subliminal Asian emasculation rears its ugly head (plus “ironic driving joke”).
“Ironic” racist jokes are racist jokes. If you stab me ironically, I am still bleeding as I would if I were stabbed.
Chuck (2007-2012) – “Harry Tang” is generally just a bad human being. Easily manipulated, blames others, is a worry-wart, and is smug after he gets promoted. Tang is promoted by an black-male character because he and Tang’s wife had an affair. Of course, Tang doesn’t know, and unidirectionally loves his wife as the cuck he is. He antagonizes one of the main characters.
Scrubs (2001-2010) – Asian man of very small stature plays “Trang.” He is a stereotypical Asian medical student. The fact that he slept with an attractive white woman is meant to be funny to audiences.
Jimmy Carr: Telling Jokes (2009) – Asian L-R joke.
Jeff Ross: No Offense (2008) – This entry does not add to the list count. Watch the excerpt here.
Mind of Mencia (2005-2008) – In one episode (S4E8, 2008), Asian man (Matthew Moy) is literally credited as “short man.”
“Hoshi” is a UFC trainer. When Pete reveals that Hoshi was an assassin, he berates him in Chinese.

Just Shoot Me (1997-2003) – Making out with an Asian man is “having Chinese” (source).
The Nanny (1993-1999) – Asian eye joke about Asians at a fucking funeral (source).
Kramer drops coins in front of a Chinese restaurant, as pointed out by hapa redditor. Sickening attempt at slyly (they are master at this) recreating the “How do Chinese parents name their children? They throw their pots down the stairs-‘Ching,’ ‘chang,’ ‘chong.'”
In another episode, a whole subplot is dedicated to mocking the antics of Kramer and some Japanese tourists (perpetual foreigner). It’s no surprise when the Asian men are objectified as objects of comedy (example).
Additinally, Opium is called “Chinaman’s cap” (source).
The Weird Al Show (1997) – The Asian actor who played “Long Duk Dong” here plays a stereotypical martial artist. With an overblown accent… even though the actor speaks perfect English.
Gilligan’s Island (1964-1967) – Man in Yellowface beat up by white woman (source).
American Crime Story (TBA) – This show does not add to the list count. Season 3 will be dedicated to the story of a half-Asian Filipino serial killer. As if the Yellow Peril garbage in media wasn’t already enough.
13 Reasons Why (2017- ) – Asiatic guy “Zach Dempsey” is an antagonistic bully on the show; in one episode, he emotionally abuses the white female lead “Hannah” for refusing to go out with him (this episode was directed by a Chan. I wonder if the cruel bastards made him do this). It was one of the reasons she killed herself. Was pretty funny how Asian guys thought this was going to a be good role.
Tomorrow, When the War Began (2016- ) – More detailed blurb coming soon. Aussie show masturbates to fantasies of the Asian Invasion for the continent’s natural resources necessary to feed their growing population. *Dies from too much irony.* Token Asian man treated like shit.

Bates Motel (2013- ) – Asian man incompetent and enforces stereotype.
Elementary (2012- ) – Show about WMAF that features Asian male criminals (source).
Sherlock (2010- )
“The Sign of Three” is one of the better episodes, but it devolves into portraying Asian men as the perpetual foreigners/tourists, while also shitting on little people.
This is relatively mild, however. The show is simply a bastion of anti-Asian-male racism:
“The Blind Banker” is probably the worst offender. It portrays Asian men as being misogynistic, cruel, inhumane, of small stature, having “small feet,” weak, unfair, corrupt, servile, tourists, alien, having accents, emotionally sterile, willing to kill family, easily influenced, and, as usual, being violence fodder.
Like several Western works, they have a fixation with the Asian male eye (3 counts), and this episode also manages to evoke The (literally!) Yellow (spray paint) Peril.
Ancillary to all this, on “The Great Game,” an Indian man is killed off for committing the crime (or at least that’s what is to the white writers) of dating a white woman.
In “The Hounds of Baskerville,” a hapa male is nothing but gullible (such an unoriginal anti-Asian-male trope), while in “Many Happy Returns,” Asians are just mystical monks and Indian men get the credit for a white man’s work (lol!). Additionally, in “The Empty Hearse,” Asian men are portrayed as conventionally unattractive criminals/”rats.”
Should I even bother watching the fourth season after this?

He is assisted by a mentally-ill college student and former student “Nathan Chow.”
Asians all hang out with each other… and kill people.

CSI: Cyber (2015-2016) – Asian man stalks daughter.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001-2011) – Reference to Asian man who uses prostitutes.
Lost (2004-2010) – Daniel Dae Kim as “Jin-Soo Kwon” (Perpetual Foreigner). Also, perpetuates stereotype of “Asian Male Misogyny.”
The Pacific (2010) – Muricans kill Japs. The finer points of the capacity of cruelty of all humans is lost. Seriously, go check the audience response to seeing Japs getting killed yourself. HBO mini-series. Apparently they’ve ridden the Yellow Peril train too; the focus groups have given a thumbs up to this, which is why more studios are investing in them.

Hawaii Five-O (1968-1980) – “Wo Fat” is based upon Fu Manchu.
Bonanza (1959-1973) – Chinese are killers and misogynistic.

Limitless (2016- ) – White man out-musicians an Asian man.
Man in the High Castle (2015- ) – Adaptation. An Amazon Original that explores the question: ‘What if the Allied Powers lost WWII?’ Japanese are amoral antagonists, and they’ve taken over the West Coast (Yellow Peril). Very sly way of peddling Yellow Peril, as this is an adaptation of 60’s novel. But why adapt it? Now? Because focus groups ate up Yellow Peril.
Sense8 (2015- ) – Features a misogynistic Asian man who don’t value his daughter as much as his son and commits suicide, an emasculated Asian men getting beat up by his sister, and is lazy and also embezzles money, and the Asian sister who falls for the sins of the father and brother. Read more at Kulture. Brought to you by Netflix.

Z Nation (2014- ) – Asian men are all idiots or foreign. Asian women are humanized. Typical disparty.

Black Mirror (2011- )
“Black Mirror: White Christmas”? More like “Yellow Peril.” White man gets “his” woman stolen by a lying Asian man.
This is not the only Yellow Peril episode. See “The Entire History of You” (according to these writers, millionaire perverts had to be Chinese) and “Playtest.” Along with shitty portrayals in “Nosedive” and “Hated in the Nation.”
Lmao. 6/13 eps, basically half the show.
Seriously, fuck this show.

Hemlock Grove (2013-2015) – Erasure of straight-Asian-male identity.

In another episode, Asian MIT Professor “Neil Chung” goes crazy, focusing on strange equations, and kills people. He shoots his gun at the white female protagonist, but is killed by her.

The robot is ultimately destroyed and vanquished. Note that Steve Park plays another character who fumbles with a white woman in a major way in the Coen Brothers’ Fargo (1996).
Family Guy (1999- )
Seth McFarlane’s career is built on shitting on Asian men. Zero satire.
You have to be mentally deficient to not see that when Seth McFarlane shits on non-Asian-male minorities, he pokes fun at racists and racism. Whereas for Asian men, he is racist and participates in racism. It is quite clear that he believes that Asian men to be a subspecies of humans.
The single most insulted group (sans satire) of people on this show are Asian men.

The Eric Andre Show (2012- ) – Asian man (as hulk) used as object of comedy on account of race. It’s even more funny because of his race.
Conan (2010- ) – Way too many Asian jokes. Featured Triumph the Insult Comic, talking about tiny Asian penises in front of foreign Asians.
Tosh.0 (2009- ) – Pretty sad and amazing how people think these shit-tier Asian jokes are funny.
Holland’s Got Talent (2008- ) – White man displays one of the most unplanned racist moments on Television against Asian man.
Real Time with Bill Maher (2003- ) – Bill Maher claims that the racism of Oscars is the the fault of Asians.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! (2003- )
He airs a clip on his show of a kid saying we should kill all the Chinese, which he thinks is funny. Not surprised considering his gf Sarah Silverman doesn’t think “chink” is a real slur.
He and his audience also think the Chinese man being beaten and dragged off the plan is funny. In fact, it was so funny, they made a parody United ad where Matt Damon plays Dr. Dao (sorta). I kid you not, the white savior quasi-white-washes Dr. Dao; I found it disturbing that they actually used an audio clip of Dr. Dao screaming near the end. They would have never done this if the passenger wasn’t an Asian man. The video, btw, was on the YouTube top-trending list.
It was also problematic how he asked Randall Park where he was from (Perpetual Foreigner stereotype).
The Amazing Race (2001- ) – Stereotypical Asian man Vanck Zhu is selected because showrunners know that stereotypes of Asian men sell well (season 29, 2017). For example, he studies in the car during the show. It’s working; people love bashing this guy.
The O’ Reilly Factor (1996- )
In 2016, a segment on the show called “Watters’ World” shits on the Chinese with outdated stereotypical jokes and cutaway gags from movies like Karate Kid. You can clearly tell that, like all Westerners, Watters doesn’t see Asian men as human beings.
In 2017, you got O’ Reilly laughing about a Chinese man that was unfairly targeted and bloodied. Would he have laughed if the man was white or black? He’s anti-black, but he would have at least maintained his composure and would have verbally said that the whole thing was funny due to its absurdity.
Australia’s Got Talent (2007-2016) – Aussies shit on Leon Lee.
American Idol (2002-2016) – William Hung. It’s crazy how whites still think this is funny.
Chelsea Lately (2007-2014) – Implies Asian penises are small (source).
Colbert Report (2005-2014) – Colbert pretends to be Asian man. Several anti-Asian jokes.
Late Night with Conan O’ Brien (1993-2009) – In an episode from 2001, the network asked Sarah Silverman to change a joke using the word “nigger” to “chink” instead. This bit was aired.
Ruth Jones’ Easter Treat (2011) – Tim Minchin feminizes China (which has been going on since the time of the ancient Greeks) in an “ironic” joke. Elements of Yellow Peril also included.
Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher (1993-2002) – Bill Maher doesn’t think using the word “chink” is a big deal.
89th Academy Awards (2017) – Jimmy Kimmel shits on Matt Damon for working with the Chinese. Mentions bit about “Chinese ponytail[s],” ignorant behind the discrimination involved with queues.
88th Academy Awards (2016) – Chris Rock mocks Asian children, while Sacha Baron Cohen makes a joke about Minions being Asians because they’re tiny, work hard, and have small “dongs.” For the Chris Rock joke, the Oscars issued a non-apology (aka insult).
ESPY Awards (2015) – Ken Jeong tells everyone he has no body hair and has a small dick. Brought to you by ABC.
MTV Movie Awards Reloaded 2003 – You are expected to scoff at the Asian man (Key Master) for showing heterosexual interest in women.
The Pioneer Woman (2011- ) – This entry does not add to the list count. White woman presents Asian wings to everyone, prompting someone to say, “I don’t trust ’em.” She says she was just kidding and presents the “real” (Murican) wings, and says that she would never dish out the punishment of feeding everyone Asian wings.
Good Eats (1999-2012) – Read the excellent reporting on Kulture. It’s not yellowface as they claim, but it is anti-Asian-male. Fuck Alton Brown.
