Family Matters (1989) became the longest running American primetime scripted series when Murphy Brown (1988) ended on May 18, 1998 and retained that status until its final episode on July 17, 1998. It was succeeded by The Simpsons (1989), which has held this distinction ever since. Family Matters (1989) was the last remaining such live-action series to have premiered in the 1980s. See more »

I've loved this show for a really long time. I thought that the entire family was great and Urkel was the best nerd I have ever seen. And the thing is, Jaleel White isn't a nerd! I've got a problem with this show though. Where did Judy go? Why did Rachel move away and Richie stay. First, I didn't really care for her but she just disappeared. Second, it would be quite strange for a little boy to stay with a different family than his mother with no sickness or harassment.
Overall the show is great and could've made the top 5 on my favorite shows but the two things knocked a half point off. Rating *** out of ****.
