Add The Sinbad Show on to that list. I would like to see Getting By again, too.

I dont think they would add Getting By because it's not all black. That show has 3 white characters, 2 or 3 i think.

They have aired shows with white characters...Boston Public is an example.

So why do you think they never added the Jeffersons?

TV Land has had it. Could be exclusive to them.

The Jeffersons have been on Nick at Nite/TV Land since 1999. It joined TV Land full time in 2002. It is expiring after next August (2009)...but they have renewed it a few times already, so they might again.

Let's not forget One in a Million with Shirley Hemphill should they reconsider airing it after pulling it the last time. I would love to see it!

I'm excited to see that Where I Live and South Central are coming to the lineup.

I would like to see the following added:

Cleghorne (1995 short lived WB sitcom featuring Ellen Cleghorne as a single parent dealing with her meddling parents).

Thea (we know that BET had it but never really did nothing with it)

Julia (the 60's sitcom featuring the first black woman in a lead role. Never saw it but heard many good things about it.)

Baby I'm Back (short lived Demond Wilson CBS sitcom from 1978)

Redd Foxx Show (ABC 1985)

The New Odd Couple (ABC 1982)

Homeroom (BET aired the reruns to this back in day, not sure if this was a network television show or a syndicated only show. It featured a black guy as a teacher and storylines revolved around his classroom life and personal life).

The Show (Fox 1996, features Mystro Clark as a star of series where we see behind the scenes of. It would remind one of The Game without sports but in the TV world.)

What's Happening Now (it ran for three seasons but has not been seen in serious syndicated reruns in a long time. It would be nice to see all of the seasons)

My Brother and Me (Nickelodeon 1994) If they ever wanted to go family friendly, this would be a great addition.

The Watcher (UPN 1995 features a rapper as a guardian angel. I think Sir Mix A Lot played in this show. This was the first black show on UPN before Moesha).

More to come

Out All Night should be a perfect candidate as Patti LaBelle already has a show for them and is seen on All of Us. I loved the Preston Episodes, too bad Fox gave it a bad night (Saturdays). What was Rhythm and Blues about?

I never saw it but it was a workplace comedy about a black radio station.

"Sons and Singers" sounds interesting too. Would love to see Esther Rolle in it.

I, recently, saw the opening credits for Shirley's show "One in a Million". It looked like fun from the little it showed.

I'd love to see Julia again - I saw it once as a kid, in reruns, but I remember very little abou it. It might be a bit old for TV One's tastes, though.

I wish they'd add 227 back to their lineup.
