Family Matters (1989-1998)
Family Matters was a sitcom that originally aired on ABC from 1989 to 1997 and then on CBS from September 1997 to July 1998. The show was a spin-off from ABC's hit show Perfect Strangers. It revolved around a black middle class family in Chicago and its nosy neighbor Steve Urkel. The Steve Urkel character, played by Jaleel White, was only suppose to be a one-time only character, but viewers gravitated toward the clumsy nerd. Through the years, the show rode the wave of success of Steve Urkel. The Urkel character was so popular in real life that he had his own cereal and doll. In 1999, TV Guide ranked Urkel #27 on its list of the "50 Greatest TV Characters of All Time".
