    This is a counter to brother Rich's thread, which black shows were a waste of airtime? My list:

    1. The secret Diary of Desome Pheifer
    2. Homeboys from out of Space
    3. What's Happening Now
    4. The Wayans Brothers
    5. The Jamie Foxx show
    6. Cedric the Entertainer Presents

    I liked these two. Both shows brought all of the creators into better things. They made me laugh, had good ratings and helped the Wayans, and Jamie grow in their professions.

    4. The Wayans Brothers
    5. The Jamie Foxx Show

    They didn't play up the life ( Doctor, Attorney ) like Cosby did on his show.
    They portrayed themselves as working class, inspiring singer ( Jamie ) , restaurant and news stand owners. ( The Wayans )

    Cosby's show had a sterilized appeal that never seemed real. His first show the Cosby show he lived in a modest home. That wasn't a good show either but he portrayed things closer to what many could find believable and true.

    I never heard of some of these shows.

    I would opt for The Parkers mainly because it SO stereotypical of black women.

    The Wayans Brothers was straight buffoonish, and Jamie Foxx's show was wack! As for as the "realism" of the Cosby show. I know plenty of black doctors married to black lawyers. I don't know why so many black folk seem to think that was unrealistic. We all know there are black doctors, just as we know there are black lawyers...who do you think these people are going to marry? The janitor who takes out the trash in their office?

    I agree... in fact my life especially during my teenage years reflected this as the community I came from was made up of mostly affluent blacks.

    The Cosby show showed a side of black life rarely talked about in the media.

    Exactly Karma...I'm not trying to classist, but most people usually marry within their social-economic group. A doctor and a lawyer are in the same economic group!
