Summary of TV Show

Family Matters is an American sitcom about a middle-class African American family living in Chicago, Illinois, which ran for nine seasons. The series is a spin-off of Perfect Strangers, but revolves around the Winslow family. Midway through the first season, the show introduced the Winslows' nerdy neighbor Steve Urkel (played by Jaleel White), who quickly became its breakout character and eventually a main character. Family Matters aired from September 22, 1989, to September 19, 1997, on ABC, and on CBS from September 19, 1997, to July 17, 1998.

With 215 episodes, Family Matters is the third longest-running U.S. sitcom with a predominantly African American cast, behind Tyler Perry's House of Payne and The Jeffersons.
