Family Matters is an American sitcom about a middle-class African-American family living in Chicago, Illinois, which ran on national television for nine full seasons. The series was a spin-off of Perfect Strangers.
I really had no idea Family Matters was a Perfect Strangers spin off. Consider my mind blown.
Also, Family Matters is the second-longest running sitcom with a mostly black cast. Family Matters had 215 episodes, The Jerffersons had 253. The Cosby Show had only 197, yet somehow 201 are in syndication.
I love it when stuff like this happens.
I used to hate Jimmy Fallon the same way I hate Dane Cook. Well, a little less. Dane Cook is the worst ever. I didn’t like Jimmy Fallon in movies, I didn’t like him on SNL, and his work on Weekend Update was deplorable. However, since he’s had his own show, I’ve seen a lot of Jimmy Fallon that I’ve liked. Dane Cook stays in the dumpster, but I’m welcoming in Jimmy Fallon with open arms. A couple weeks ago, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake gave us The History of Rap, spot on verses from important hip hop songs of the last 30 years. Here he is with spot on impersonations of about 10 comedians. Skip to 1:25.
