Show Summary

Living Single was a situation comedy that centered on the lives of a group of six African American friends living in (or near) a Brooklyn brownstone. The series focused on the personal and professional lives of each character, as well as their relationships with one another. Khadijah James, editor and publisher of the urban independent monthly Flavor, shares an apartment with her sweet but naive cousin Synclaire, an aspiring actress who works as Khadijah's receptionist; and her longtime friend Regine Hunter, an image-conscious boutique buyer with a fondness for gossip and wigs. Maxine Shaw, a sharp-tongued attorney and Khadijah's best friend, stops by frequently to share her unique insights and make sure the girls' refrigerator isn't overstocked. Living upstairs are Overton Wakefield Jones, a friendly handyman who holds deep affection for Synclaire; and Kyle Barker, a handsome funds manager whose constant verbal sparring with Max does little to mask their obvious sexual attraction. Living Single was the winner of two NAACP Image Awards as Outstanding Comedy Series, in 1996 and '98. Living Single airs on Oxygen weekdays at 3 & 3:30 PM and 6 & 6:30 PM.

  • I am to the point.

    GREAT!!!!
  • MOST television shows today are not worth watching. This show was a clear exception! Yvette Lee and the cast and crew of "Living Single" really excelled with their commitment to warm comedy and to mature, INTELLIGENT WRITING! Here's to all of you!!moreless

    "Living Single" is a mature, INTELLIGENT, comedy dedicated to real-life issues between six friends. It puts to shame the present day trash disguising itself as television entertainment. The writing and acting of "Living Single" is high quality and polished. It is not for the immature who'd rather look for America's next "model", or watch "reality shows" about "reality shows". Watching this show creates the experience of "hanging out" with a few friends in New York. It is fresh, warm, funny, and very touching. Congratulations to the writers, cast, and crew of one of television's FEW shows that spells "excellent"! It is one of a SELECT few shows that I continue to watch and treasure. I will definitely add this to my library. Thank you, "Living Single". Take a well-deserved bow.moreless

    The show was great! It had a lot of fun loving characters. It was all abot a group of friends that lived int the same Brownstone (except Max)who were trying to find love! Khadijah was the leader. She owned a magazine Flava and was known as the Mother of the group. Max was the hardworking attorny who was also a mooch. Sinclair was Khadijiah's easy going cousin. Regine was the materialistic girl who looked for love in all the wrong wallets. Kyle was the self absorbed stockbrocker and also Max's love interest. And Overton was the simple minded handy man and also Sinclair's love interest. They made a great show which will always be one of my favorites.moreless
  • Not bad.

    Loved this show and it may have been the reason why I never watch Seinfeld when it was on its original time slot. I just started to watch the reruns every morning. I wake up at 6:00 AM and watch two episodes back to back. Is a nice way to start the day. I now appreciate how well produced it was and I am proud of everyone in that show. They all did a fantastic job. If you watch, you realize it goes beyond of race or color. You don't think they are African American. You just think they are good friends. They are all unique and I can't decide who is my favorite. You identify with the characters. They are not too pretty or neurotic. They are your own friends, neighbors and coworkers. The message was positive and it remains fresh.moreless
