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 »

Great show but two big questions
1 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

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 ****.
