Wikipedia, handy little site, has a link about Black sitcoms that lists what looks like…all of them. My favorites…
1970s: Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids, Good Times, The Jeffersons
1980s: 227, A Different World, Amen, The Cosby Show
1990s: Desmond’s, Family Matters, Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, In The House, Living Single, Moesha, Martin, Out All Night, Roc, Sister Sister, South Central, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Parent’Hood, The Parkers, Thea
2000s: All of Us, Eve, Girlfriends, Half & Half, My Wife and Kids, That’s So Raven, The Bernie Mac Show
Basically nothing that started after 2002 is on my list…
I would love to see some Black sitcoms with the quality-level of the past and, well…more scripted dramas that includes great Black characters (since I can’t recall a drama that was primarily casted Black, off of the top of my head). As for the latter, I have “Olivia Pope” on Scandal. I tried to like “Eric Foreman” on House M.D. (which just had the series finale), but they made his character like a less humorous, less unique version of House, which just made him seem uncomfortable. I don’t watch Grey’s Anatomy or Private Practice (though I love Rhimes’ work on Scandal) so I don’t see the Black characters on those. There’s “Morgan” on Criminal Minds, and “Sam” on NCIS LA that I like.
Right now, I am in a “I can still physically live in the present but enjoy things from the past” mode. People get snarky with me about my love of TV reruns or anything 90s, but no one gets mad when a senior rather listen to Aretha on vinyl instead of Nicki on Pandora.
Why won’t the younger folks let me be great! I can be nouveau nostalgic, within reason. I still listen to current music (Janelle, Esperanza), watch current shows (Scandal), watch current films, look at current photography, visit current exhibits at museums etc. Doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the goodies of the past.
