Trivia

According to Alfonso Ribeiro, he did not enjoy working on the series because LL Cool J created a poor working environment. Ribeiro stated that LL was focused on his music instead of the show. Ribeiro did not want to return to the series' fifth season because he did not want to work with LL any longer. When LL heard this, he apologized to Ribeiro and the two remained friendly while they worked on the fifth season. See more »

An absolute NBC turned UPN classic!
18 May 2014 | by (Fairfax, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

"IN THE HOUSE," in my opinion, is an absolute NBC turned UPN classic! I haven't seen every episode, but I still enjoyed it. It's hard to say which episode was my favorite. However, I think it was always funny when a mishap occurred. I always laughed at that. If you ask me, it was nice that all of the main characters had stayed with the show throughout its entire run. It seems that no one stays with a show throughout its entire run. Everyone always gave a good performance, the production design was spectacular, the costumes were well-designed, and the writing was always very strong. In conclusion, if some network ever airs it in reruns again, I hope you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
