TV is not the same. Everywhere you turn, there are a bunch senseless drama-filled shows featuring wild, loud and out-of-control characters, particularly African American women. What happened to quality television, you ask? Shows that kept our interest with more than just he-said-she-said, hair-pulling and scripted nonsense? Take a look at these 11 shows that many consider classics and most-likely wish were still alive and rolling.
The Cosby Show
Probably the most cherished African American sitcom to ever hit TV, “The Cosby Show” was the epitome of black love, family and positivity. The fashions were colorful and fresh, and the storylines never got stale. Who didn’t wish Heathcliff Huxtable and Clair were their parents (or for at least the weekend)? Still garnering praise and reverence nearly 30 years later, it will forever be considered a classic.
