In the Superior Donuts episode “Error of Admission,” Franco (Jermaine Fowler) is delighted to hear that he’s been accepted to his dream school. But then he finds out that his boss Arthur (Judd Hirsch) included his ethnicity on the application. Franco wanted to get into the school based solely on the merits of his art. The ordeal forces Franco to consider giving up his admission.
