American sitcom pokes fun at baby-sitters from Tobago

Women from Trinidad and Tobago who work as "nannys" or babysitters in the US, were a brief topic of discussion in a recent episode of American sitcom, "Black-ish", aired on ABC.

But while Trinidad gets a thumbs up, the script does not favour Tobago too well, in a humourous opening dialogue.

An episode that was aired last week, began with a discussion about the need to find a nanny, as characters played by actor Anthony Anderson and actress Wanda Skyes sit around an office table with other workers, discussing where to get a nanny.
