Neil Patrick Harris,
The Winslow family is a pretty normal family except for one thing, their neighbor Stephen Urkel. A genius and klutz Steve makes some really weird inventions while driving the Winslow's insane. Written by
When ABC delayed making a decision to renew the show for a ninth season, CBS made a deal with Warner Bros. Television to renew the show for a ninth season, which would be its last. The show's producers hoped for a 10th and final season on CBS, but the ratings for the 1997-98 9th season were so bad that the network ended up canceling the show and airing the series finale with no fanfare during the summer season. In a nod to the stillborn plans to have Steve and Laura get married in a 10th season, the series finale did have them getting engaged. JoMarie Payton decided to leave the show when it moved networks from ABC to CBS because she didn't like how the show overemphasized the Steve Urkel character. Payton agreed to appear during the first half of the ninth season, after which she was replaced as Harriette Winslow by Judyann Elder. See more »
In the first episode, outside of the front door is a little hallway leading outside. From the second episode on, the hallway was a porch. See more »
I've never tried out for athletics before and the equipment list says that every guy should wear a cup.
Well, I didn't have one. So, is it all right with you? I'm wearing a Bart Simpson's mug.

I've loved this show for a really long time. I thought that the entire family was great and Urkel was the best nerd I have ever seen. And the thing is, Jaleel White isn't a nerd! I've got a problem with this show though. Where did Judy go? Why did Rachel move away and Richie stay. First, I didn't really care for her but she just disappeared. Second, it would be quite strange for a little boy to stay with a different family than his mother with no sickness or harassment.
Overall the show is great and could've made the top 5 on my favorite shows but the two things knocked a half point off. Rating *** out of ****.
