Storyline

Considered by many to be CBS' answer to the "Cosby Show", Charlie & Co. followed the Richmond family, headed by dad Charlie, played by funny-man Flip Wilson a blue-collar worker and his wife, Diana, played by Gladys Knight. Though it was seen as more realistic and relateable than the upscale Huxtable family, Charlie & Co. was not able to latch on to the public the way Cosby had. Written by <journal101@yahoo.com>

What was Flip thinking? or CBS?
25 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot believe that anyone has anything good to say about this show. It was BEYOND bad. Just seeing Gladys Knight trying to act is painful enough (I can't understand why anyone who can sing with such feeling can be such a horrific actor but...) I remember when this show debuted. it was clear that CBS was trying to make it's own Cosby Show clone and even the COs himself mentioned how he felt hurt by his old friend Flip Wilson doing this to him. The writing was pitiful, the acting was from bad to worse and there is nothing memorable (in a good way) about this misfire. Be glad it isn't on any video format and pray it stays that way.
