90s Black Sitcoms, Ranked

The Cosby Show, what has long been considered the greatest black sitcom of all time, celebrates its 30th anniversary in two weeks. That the show’s legendary run is marked by a return to a more diverse television landscape this fall seems fitting: NBC, ABC, and FOX, along with other networks, will debut a variety of shows that cast minority actors in lead roles (several are women of color). This push for more nuanced programming brings to mind the 1990s, a decade known for its rich portrayal of black life through shows like Living Single and Roc. Here, a completely indisputable ranking of black sitcoms that aired between 1990 and 1999.

What’s up with these privileged suburban kids wanting to be hood?
Kids that were fortunate to have both parents in their life…
Kids that had a meal on their table every morning and night…

Y’all don’t know struggle; going to school just to get a meal that was my life. Thrift store and hand-me downs
That was my life

Seeing niggas get wrapped up in that trap life that your favorite rappers love to tell fables about.
Or watching family member get hooked on drugs…
That hood life ain’t so sweet….


It’s funnier if you read her texts
