You are correct, I'm not saying MEN wouldn't enjoy ADW, i'm just saying it's a TV show that had WOMEN in mind when it was created. Just like Sanford and Son was geared toward men but women still find it funny except for my mom-lol

I understand where you are coming from but my brothers and I loved this show as well as other guys that we went to school with back in the day and we all talked about what happened on the show early friday morning. So I am confident that there was a widespread male audience as well. Heck, Fraiser is airing on Lifetime and the cast predominantly consists of men.

Okay now Solomon, this is the part where you argue.

It was a show geared towards college aged and high school kids, male and female. Black universities across the nation seen an increase in school registration when ADW was at its height.

I agree with that cause it is the truth. Women and Men watched the show.

It's back on The N (mornings.)

The show is a bit female centric, but not as much as the other shows on either Oxygen or Lifetime. The men in a ADW weren't second characters or weren't ever "othered."

Dude... your POV is sometimes borderline sexist. You think showing any sign of emotion, empathy, sympathy, etc. is bad thing that should be looked down upon. Being a brickwall isn't a prerequisite to being a man.

The show is produced by a woman... that doesn't make it a show about women. You can't forget about all the other men involved in the creative aspect of the show... the writers, directors, Bill Cosby, etc.

I'm sorry the show just had a FEMININE FEEL to It.

Thank You!!!

There were male cast members as well and there were many episodes that were about them. So I don't see how it's "Women programming."

This show did have a female slant to it- but variety is the spice of life- Sanford and Son and the Wayans Bros were definitely male slanted shows so why not a female slanted black series? But in TVResearcher's defense as much as I liked this series I always felt that the male characters were a bit less developed than the women.
