Storyline

Considered by many to be CBS' answer to the "Cosby Show", Charlie & Co. followed the Richmond family, headed by dad Charlie, played by funny-man Flip Wilson a blue-collar worker and his wife, Diana, played by Gladys Knight. Though it was seen as more realistic and relateable than the upscale Huxtable family, Charlie & Co. was not able to latch on to the public the way Cosby had. Written by <journal101@yahoo.com>

Not so bad
22 July 2002 | by athomas1See all my reviews

This show wasn't so bad, as the previous reviewer would let you believe, but come on, it was going up against The Cosby Show. I liked it because it focused on more than just the kids in the show and some of the episodes were pretty darn funny.
