Default Did anyone watch this 1993 Comedy that was also cancelled after one season?

It was called "Getting By" which premired on NBC in fall of 1993 and the cast members were

Bud from the Cosby Show-"Deon Richmond

Romeo from Steve Harvey Show-"Merlin Santana

Cindy Williams

Telma Hopkins



I watched it recently and it was a watchable show I think. On the same level as Family Matters and Step by Step.

I sure watched a lot of TV in 1993. I seem to remember all these shows. Cindy Williams and Thelma Hopkins were friends who lived in a house together with their kids. I thought it was a really cute show.

I remember a show called "True Colors" about a black man who married a white woman. I believe she had a girl and a boy and he had two boys. I know it didn't last very long.

It doesn't seem like it lasted 2 seasons, I think they moved it around a lot or I just stop watching it.

I think that's all of the good shows that I can't think of that didn't last.

I though "Getting By" was a pretty good show and was dissapointed when it was cancelled. I did however catch reruns of it a couple years ago on AmericanLife TV. They aired Getting By reruns every Saturday night for about a year. I wished I had taped some of them.
