“Girlfriends,” which was created by Mara Brock Akil, has been cancelled by the CW and won’t return in the Fall of 2008. Honestly, it hasn’t been as good since Toni left, but it was still one of the few shows on television that featured Black women…and I watched it every week! The writers kept it real…every week they touched on topics that actually affect us…and were real about how we deal with them. I didn’t feel like the characters were just White characters played by Black women…they were really Sistahs. Honestly, I’m also going to miss watching what Joan had on…her gear, bags and shoes were BAD every week!
“Girlfriends” leaves the air as the longest running live action comedy show currently on television, having 172 episodes in the can. Both ”The Game” and “Everybody Hates Chris” were renewed. I will truly miss my “Girlfriends”! [E!online]
