Family Matters (1989-1998)

Sassy elevator operator Harriette Winslow and her middle class family were the focus of this Perfect Strangers (1986-1993) spin-off.  Family Matters had a modest debut but things really started to matter ;-) with the introduction of the next-door neighbor to end all sitcom next-door neighbors - nerdy, accident-prone Steve Urkel.  Proving popular with audiences, Family Matters soon became The Steve Urkel Show a phenomenal hit and Harriette and her family got the shaft (see what I did there?)  Actress Jamiee Foxworth resorted to a career in porn after her character was simply written out without any explanation.  That must of been harder to swallow than...well, you know.
