The Demise of the Black Sitcom

August 13th, 2008 9:15am EDT
The Bernie Mac Show
African Americans have come a long way in a relatively short time in the entertainment industry. From Hattie McDaniel becoming the first black actor to win an Academy Award in 1939 to the trailblazing success of Sidney Poitier in the 1960s, African Americans have consistently broken through show business barriers on the march towards equality. As Frederick Douglass once said, "Without struggle, there is no progress."

Over the years, progress was certainly made in Hollywood, especially on the small screen. In fact, the year 1990 saw a great influx of black talent on television. That...

Bad Dads & Rad Dads On TV

June 13th, 2008 8:44am EDT
The Brady Bunch
Back when television was young, TV fathers were portrayed as all knowing and in control. Fathers knew best. They dispensed unchallenged wisdom. They were calm and smiling and never seemed pressured by any circumstance. They were always clad in a shirt and tie, even while relaxing at home.

The TV fathers of the 50s and 60s had a ready answer for their children, all who sat with rapt attention to the father's every word. "Gee, Dad," said Wally of Leave It to Beaver, "I never thought about it that way." The Brady kids would also express the same types of revelation after a counseling ses...

CW Hopes That New Lineup, '90210' Can Provide Spark In 2008-09

May 14th, 2008 11:32am EDT
Jennie Garth will star on 90210
It's been a rough couple of years for the CW. While execs tout victories in certain small and obscure demos, the fact remains that the network regularly gets outdrawn by more than one basic cable network. Despite that, there was a sense of optimism as the network unveiled its 2008-2009 schedule yesterday.

Like with ABC, there were few surprises on the CW schedule. Most of the established shows will be returning, and those that were canceled will not be missed (with the exception of dear departed "Aliens in America"). Even "Reaper," which has been on the bubble for nearly the entire...

Where Are They Now?: 'A Different World'

February 14th, 2008 11:00am EST
A Different World
"A Different World," a half-hour sitcom about students at fictional Hillman College, was on the air from 1987 to 1993. It was the creation of Bill Cosby and originally served as a spin-off venue for then Cosby kid Lisa "Denise" Bonet.

However, it wasn't until Lisa Bonet was booted from the show (due to a pregnancy) that "A Different World" really took off in popularity. Fueled by a core ensemble cast of likeable characters - Dwayne, Whitley, Freddie, Kim, Jaleesa, Ron, and Walter - "A Different World" was in the top 10 shows in the Nielsen ratings for five of the six years it aired.

Some football films have rousing, rough-and-tumble-scream-at-the-TV football action. This is the "Football Factor." They're just like watching a game with two great defenses.
