So there was basically gentrification (sort of) in regards to black sitcoms and white sitcoms took their places....good post

The last couple of years black television shows have been pretty good. Don't expect sitcoms to be like the 90's cause those types of sitcoms are pretty outdated in the new generation of television. One of the reasons I didn't care for The Carmichael show and don't expect Marlon's show to last long. Insecure and Atlanta are kind of the way to go with how tv shows are formatted these days.

For a hot minute it was pretty terrible though cause the only constant black representation on tv were reality shows and Tyler Perry shows.

The shows nowadays just don't have that appeal or flavor that the throwback joints used to have. The Carmichael Show was the only show that I really, really enjoyed.

Atlanta...couldn't tell u anything about it after the second episode.

Binge watched the first season of Insecure once and have no interests in returning to it...Show is really jus Girls for black people..

Black-ish is aight.

It seemed to me that this type of content, the networks don't want to be seen. ...

Most images of black men are gay, weak, or incompetent or just out right evil ....which is why i don't partake

What people are looking for are good shows that don't have to be centered around drugs (Snowfall, Power, etc.).

We have enough drug stories out. Let's get to some regular every day sh*t. That's why a different world was so great, regular everyday sh*t for a college student. So many could relate and still do relate. That's why Power will never be, but a decent show to me.

All I watch is 90's black sitcoms, but I need my dose of Married With Children and Good Times too.

There was money in black sitcoms. I think they stopped because eventually, black empowerment or black perception changes when you can allow them to be seen in a positive light and I think society at large doesn't want that.
