Cedric the Entertainer,
This has been one of the best sitcoms ever to be shown on television, starring a likable and highly-talented all-black cast. Thea Vidale, an underrated comedienne, heads the sitcom as in-your-face mama Thea Turrell, a widow who is struggling to raise her four kids with the help of her sister and brother-in-law. With her trademark one-liner of "See ya'!", Thea is charming, witty, and wonderful all at the same time! The show also features a young Brandy Norwood (aka Brandy) who later went on to top the pop charts as a vocalist and the sitcom star of "Moesha"; and a young Jason Weaver who lent his voice along with Jonathan Taylor Thomas as Young Simba in "The Lion King" and also co-starred in Steve Harvey's sitcom "Me and the Boys." Little did Norwood and "Thea" alum Yvette Wilson know that two seasons after the sitcom's cancellation, they'd be co-starring together in "Moesha." ABC cancelled "Thea" way too quickly, giving it only six months on the air and forcing "Thea" to lead-off an iffy Wednesday night lineup directly slotted opposite "The Nanny." This is truly one that got away!
