Hangin' With Mr. Cooper debuted as an interesting comedy with a good cast.
It was much stronger and tolerable when Mark Cooper (Mark Curry) shared his house with roommates Robin Dummars (Dawnn Lewis) and Vanessa Russell (as Holly Robinson).
But when the second season rolled around and Robin was replaced by Mark's cousin and her child - the show seemed less appealing.
It was never a strong competitor but it still warranted a worthy storyline - yet with the addition of a few characters the show seemingly lost a little of its leverage. By the time the cast and crew decided to call it quits, the fat lady had been singing for quite some time.
