It's as simple as this--FOX was scared of this show, which is why it didn't last a full season. It would appear that they thought this sitcom with dramatic undertones was too raw for audiences to deal with. The South Central area of L.A. was in the news a lot during that time. Rap musicians were always referring to it in their songs, and it had a nationwide reputation for being a violent neighborhood. I guess FOX saw something it could captialize on, but the heat was too much for them to take. This was another failed sitcom for Larenz Tate, a good actor who had previously appeared on "The Royal Family". Hopefully, the few show that were produced will show up on video or DVD one day. It was worth watching.
