# 8 Living Single
Aired on Fox August 29, 1993 – January 1, 1998
This was the Black Sex And The City and we didn’t even know it. Four girlfriends, two guys, living in a brownstone in New York. All somewhat successful. Dating, sex and friendship remained a constant theme week after week. Produced by Yvette Lee Bowser, Living Single became one of the most popular African-American sitcoms of its era, ranking among the top five in African-American ratings in all five seasons.
RUNNER UP: Martin
Aired on Fox August 27, 1992 – May 1, 1997.
Like Living Single, Martin also aired on Fox around the same time period and is credited with being one of their top shows. The crazy antics of Martin Payne including his love life, friendships and job, kept viewers laughing for five years.
