Family Matters Plot

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, 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 nine seasons, Family Matters is the second longest-running U.S. sitcom with a predominantly African American cast. It follows The Jeffersons, which aired for 11 seasons. In terms of the number of episodes, Family Matters is ranked third after The Jeffersons and Tyler Perry's House of Payne.
