List of African-American TV shows, including TV shows loved by African-Americans. This list contains TV shows black people love, whether the shows are current or from the past or contain an all-black or only partly black cast -- from any genre. From sitcoms to dramas to reality shows, these are the shows African-Americans love. Vote your favorites up.

 The lack of black television shows of any genre has been consistently noted, but as the 21st century rolls on, the state of African-American television shows signs of improvement. Television has come a long way from “The Cosby Show,” which is often considered a breakthrough moment in African-American TV. Today, all-black sitcoms, reality shows, and dramas are more readily available, from reruns of classics, including “Martin” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” to current shows, such as “Basketball Wives.”

 Of course, TV shows African-Americans love don’t just include those with all-black casts or those specifically aimed at the demographic. In fact, Nielsen ratings from 2012 show that a few series black people love are also enjoyed by all demographics. Examples include “NCIS” and “60 Minutes.”

 What are your favorite African-American TV shows? Which shows are most loved by black people? Are they classics, such as “The Jeffersons” or “Living Single”? Or are they just entertaining TV, including “Modern Family” or “South Park”? Whether the shows portray life in the African-American community or provide an engaging viewer experience, these TV shows African-Americans love keep viewers returning to their television sets.

List Criteria: TV shows with strong black audiences - all genres and from all time periods
