“Awkwafina is Nora from Queens” airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. on Comedy Central. AP

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Nora (Awkwafina, the comedian, rapper and movie star – “The Farewell,” “Crazy Rich Asians”) lives at home in Flushing with her grandma (Lori Tan Chinn, “Orange Is the New Black”) and her dad (BD Wong, most recently, “Mr. Robot”). She’s struggling to figure stuff out, or how to move out, but jobs are hard to come by. At least grandma and dad are patient. This series – which Comedy Central just handed a second season to – is based on the life of Nora Lum, aka Awkwafina.

MY SAY: “Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens” poses one of the great questions of our time, specifically this one: Will millennials watch a TV show with commercials in it?
