Friends was actually a copy of a UK show... living single had a very different audience.. so this whole "stole" thing is garbage.

The point is, Living Single was a huge success if you remember. (If you are too young, look it up). It was booming, and the network seemingly intentionally cut Living Singles white viewers off from the show by putting it against a White carbon copy knowing damn well that was going to take Living Singles white viewers.

There was no real reason to do that. Not even Marvel and DC will release movies on the same fu*king date. You space that sh*t when you have similar competing projects.

They sabotaged those black shows once they were ready to k*ll them off and go after those white viewers. Those shows didnt have the biggest white Audiences, but they did have some. And the networks k*lled that sh*t on purpose.

Truth. The WB lineup with the wayans bros., the steve harvey show and a couple of other shows as bad as they were (see homeboys from outta space), it was k*lling it and wb just shut it down one by one for no reason (it wasnt low views either) then changed the station name to CW. I remember Living single, Martin and New York Undercover on Thursday nights as that 2hr. block on Fox. Mad Tv on Saturday nights and in Living color on Sundays

I think the programming made sense

As I recall fox Thursday was very black and a perfect alternative to the very white NBC lineup.

Living Single came out first

I didnt realize it at the time but Martin/Living Single was the FOX lineup and Seinfeld/Friends was the NBC lineup on Thursday.

sh*t was probably owned by the same guy

Theres a lot of funny white shows and I can appreciate a lot of humor but friends is pure trash wonder if you have to be a white yuppie to get the jokes. Living single wasnt for me either.

I know for a fact black people don’t watch friends, so anyone even debating friends exposing themselves


I watched a few episodes but that sh*t is unwatchable.
Well...



I tried watching Friends to see what all the hype was about...sh*t was trash.

Big bang theory also trash.

What I'm saying is it was the first time we saw an all black cast hanging out as "friends". Even tho Martin and Gina was together.

I use to watch Friends in highschool only because it came on after Seinfeld on the WB. So the TV was already on, but at no point was I ever like, "damn, I missed an episode of Friends..."

Friends is the booty version of Living Single.
