In an Archive of American Television interview, Malcolm-Jamal Warner revealed that he was frustrated making this show, because he felt that the producers of the show were catering to black stereotypes in order to cater to UPN's urban audience, which Warner (due to his experience with The Cosby Show (1984)) felt were easy and not necessary. Despite this (and tensions between him and co-star Eddie Griffin) he stayed on hoping that the shows modest success would guarantee a good syndication deal once the show reached one hundred episodes. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled twelve episodes short of that goal.
