Apparently, the original concept of “Family Matters” was a blue collar version of “The Cosby Show.” However, the show was very bland, and on the verge of being cancelled. One episode, featuring Jaleel White, guest-starring as the character, Steve Urkel, reinvented the show.
Steve Urkel quickly became the show’s main character, with the family being the supporting cast. The popularity of Urkel left Judy Winslow, the youngest child (Rudy) exiled from the show. “Family Matters” continued as if she never existed, as she was last seen at the grandma’s wedding.
As Twitter does, a debate over the worst 1990s sitcoms has emerged. It is a heated discussion that has seen classics like “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Martin” being dragged. Those hot takes led to the more conventional discussions, such as “Family Matters,” and it’s received an epic dragging, causing fans to come in and defend Carl Winslow (Reginald VelJohnson), and the Winslow family.
