Is The Black Television Series Dead?

June 4, 2011  |  

Remember the days of “Martin” and “Living Single” and “In Living Color”? Of course you do. Those were our shows and they were our shows. You know what I’m saying? We loved the shows because they featured black casts but more importantly we loved the shows because they were funny, fresh, relatable and entertaining.

Is that still the case today? We might be entertained by a show, but does that make it quality television? A writer over at Hello Beautiful argues not. She says that while there is no shortage of black people on television she would never even consider buying a DVD of shows like “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne” or “Single Ladies”.
