Moesha Deniese Mitchell is teenager who soon became an adult, learning various issues to do with love, sex, relationship and family. Following her mothers death Moesha looked after her father Frank Mitchell (William Allen Young) and brother Myles Mitchell (Marcus T. Paulk) She jealous of her new step-mother Dee Mitchell (Sherly Lee Ralph) who seemed to be taking over her role but the two have gotten to know and understand each other. Mo's friends Kim Parker (Countess Vaughn-James), Niecy Jackson (Shar Jackson) and Hakeem Campbell (Lamount Bentley) have made it through teenage adventure-hood with Moesha into becoming mature adults. When Countess Vaughn James left the series to do with Mo'Nique on her own show called "The Parkers" which was the "Moesha" spin-off, Ray-J came along to take over the show and became the new cast member of the show.

Together, the "vending machine king" and his friend and employee Milsap, who has followed the Hughleys to the suburbs, make life difficult for their tall, loud, very white neighbor Dave.

    Mo'Nique and Countess Vaugh star as the mother-daughter family of Nikki and Kim Parker, in this spin-off of the hit UPN sitcom, Moesha. This time around, Kim and Nikki enroll into Santa Monica Junior College in Santa Monica, California. While Kim was initially bothered by the thought of her mother attending college with her, she eventually came to accept it, and they both grew closer because of the experience. Then, there was Nikki; she got pregnant with Kim in high school, which forced her to dropout during her senior year to raise her daughter (she went back to receive her high school diploma, as seen in an episode of Moesha), and eventually never went to college---until now. Nikki is known most-notably for her never-ending pursuits after SMC professor, Stanley Oglevee (Dorien Wilson). Throughout the entire series, Professor Oglevee denied Nikki's request for love; but as we know, that never stopped Nikki. The show became a huge hit with UPN's viewers, as did its predecessor. In 2004, after five years and 110 episodes, The Parkers ended its series run. Throughout its five seasons, the series, along with its cast members, have been nominated for 11 NAACP Image Awards; it has won five, with Mo'Nique winning four as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2001, 2002, 2004, and 2005 for her role as Nikki Parker. Dorien Wilson won an Image award in 2004 as Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. In 2002, Yvette Wilson was nominated as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.moreless

    UPN (ended 2000)
    Dilbert is a cubicle dwelling employee for a large soulless corporation. Each episode the show goes on many adventures that will leave you waiting for more. One simple phrase to describe Dilbert would be laugh out loud. The comical adventures that each story have are very well written by expert writers and voiced by an astonishing cast. The series is mainly about the main character Dilbertand his daily life at work. Although it is not always your typical days events that happens at the office. One of the many features this office has are little people living in the basement who apparently steal the company's markers and uses them to get high. Story lines expand from the world coming to an end for Y2K to the Dogbert trying to enslave the world! Dilbert truly is a show that you only see once in every 30 channels! Characters: Dilbert: Dilbert is your average "tech buff." He has a dog named Dogbert who frequently out-wits him. When push comes to shove you will most likely see Dilbert on the ground. He is an engineer, but often questions if he was meant to have that career. Often he tries to get his own office away from the fellow employees, but every scheme fails for one reason or another. Dilbert is the average struggling guy trying to get by at work one day at a time. Dogbert: Dogbert is not your average dog. In fact he is nothing like a dog at all. On the outside he may look like "man's best friend", but on the inside he wants to rule man. In many episodes Dogbert tries to control the world, but in each episode his scheme fails for one reason or another. Although Dogbert may seem cute and fuzzy he is far from it. The relationship is basically the opposite between Dilbert and Dogbert. Though these two often disagree on many matters they always have each other's back….or at least most of the time. Pointy-Haired Boss: He's every employee's worst nightmare. He has the laziness of Homer Simpson and the wacky comments of Peter Griffin. When those two are mixed watch out! Although he is often away from work he is the boss and as the boss he has the most power at the office. Now stupidity and leadership don't always work well together so just when you thought you figured him out he will surprise you with some wacky antic! Alice: She is one of Dilbert's co-workers. Being the only female employee in the department, she puts up with a lot. Occasionally the guys at work may step out of their place, but she will always take care of that with some violence. Her cubical is located to the left of Dilbert's, but that doesn't stop her from making frequent visits. Certainly Alice is a force not to reckon with. Wally: He is every employee's worst nightmare! He is very lazy and only goes to work just to be there thus receiving his pay check. He tries to use schemes to receive quick cash, but usually they don't work. He later learned in the series that trying to save up sick days for early retirement doesn't always work. The lesson learned in that was that over a period of time those days expire. Over all Wally is pretty much a small guy with a big mouth that frequently gets him in trouble. Broadcast history: Mon: 8:00 PM - 8:30 PM Tue: 8:30 PM - 9:00 PM Like many great shows Dilbert was short lived, but its memory lives on in eternity. Now, many are able to watch Dilbert on DVD and relive every wacky memory that the show has to offer. Not only has Dilbert become one of the most famous comic strips like Garfield, Peanuts, Blondie, etc. etc. but has become somewhat of a "hope symbol" to the daily working person. So pop the DVD in and let your bones ache from laughter! Dilbert is based off of the hit comic strip series of the same name created by Scott Adams.moreless

    Malcolm McGee (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) is a responsible and sensible 20-something who ends up sharing a Kansas City apartment and a business venture with relentlessly enthusiastic tow truck owner Eddie Sherman (Eddie Griffin). A fast talker with outlandish frenetic energy, Eddie's charming schemes always seems to get the two into hot water. But no matter what the situation, these opposites always end up bailing each other out -- even if they drive each other crazy. When the guys unexpectedly became recipients of a considerable sum of money, Malcolm and Eddie decided to buy not only the old Irish pub below their apartment, but the entire building, including Eddie's garage, as an investment. As new bar owners, the guys gave the place a facelift by turning it into a sports bar and renaming it McGee's. There, they hang out with local regulars, including Tim (Jaime Cardriche), a gentle giant working as a male nurse, and Nicolette (Karen Malina White), the motor-mouth police academy cadet with a love-crazed obsession for Eddie. As Malcolm manages McGee's and Eddie tries to bolster his fledging one-man/one-truck towing operation into a fleet, success for these two could be as simple as staying out of trouble.moreless
