Trivia

Originally Telma Hopkins was cast as Ruth, but Bill Cosby gave the role to Phylicia Rashad. Some believe it was in hopes of recapturing the magic The Cosby Show (1984) had, but it was because Hopkins didn't react well to Cosby's tendency to ad-lib. See more »

Bill Cosby, Phylicia Rashad and... Madeline Kahn!
20 January 2000 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

No, this show is not as good as The Cosby Show and its quality has been varying in the past few years. However, four years away from weekly TV screens did not diminish Bill Cosby's ability to make us laugh, or his chemistry with Phylicia Rashad. Both are in fine form. Doug E. Doug is funny in this often, as well, but by far the most invaluable member of the cast was the late, great Madeline Kahn, who has apparently been overlooked for her work here as she was overlooked so many times in her life. Her effortless, hilarious form of ditzy comedy really helped the show a lot, especially in the first season. It was great to see the cast pay tribute to her in a recent episode, which featured many hilarious clips showcasing her. Without her, who knows how the show will end up?
