Girlfriends (TV Show): 2000-2008

This post is dedicated to the fans of the television series Girlfriends. The show, created by Mara Brock Akil,  aired for eight seasons, starting in 2000 until it was cancelled in 2008.

I appreciated the diversity of the characters, centering around four black women. published this article entitled, "The Demise of the Black Sitcom," which highlights the struggles that shows with predominantly black casts have faced.

"In 2008, the series "Girlfriends" - a staple of UPN and The CW networks for a combined eight years - was unceremoniously cancelled. The program, which centered on the lives of four young black women (a story often never told in Hollywood), "Girlfriends" became one of the highest rated shows among African-Americans aged 18-34. By 2008, however, the show was dumped by the network. "Girlfriends" never received a proper series finale, angering many loyal fans."

Girlfriends -
So why was the show cancelled?
