"In a '90s kind of a world, I'm glad a got my girls."

Below is the synopsis of "Living Single," per IMDB.

Follows the lives of several single male and female roommates and friends in 1990s Brooklyn, New York.

Queen Latifah spoke out and said "Living Single" inspired "Friends." But Black Twitter got involved and accused "Friends" of whitewashing and ripping off "Living Single." The shows are both set in New York and built around twenty-somethings navigating their way through relationships and careers—having each other's backs along the way. (Hmm...)

"Living Single" premiered in the fall of 1993 and remained a top five sitcom among black households for all five seasons. The show definitely resonated. "Living Single" followed six friends (four women and two men) who all live in a Brooklyn brownstone together, and highlighted their struggles and triumphs within their love lives and careers.

Viewers fell in love with all six characters. Khadijah James (played by Queen Latifah) was a fierce and independent but often times stressed magazine owner. Synclaire James-Jones was Khadijah's kindhearted, but eccentric cousin and receptionist to Flavor magazine. We all have a friend like Maxine "Max" Felice Shaw—strong, smart and successful, but she doesn't cook; Max stayed in her friend's fridge. Kyle Barker was a clean-cut brother and stoke broker who was always at Max's throat; it turned out the two were in love with each other. Overton "Obie" Wakefield Jones was a good dude, Synclaire's love interest, and the building's handyman. And then there's Regina "Regine" Hunter—the pure definition of what it means to be black and boujee.

The Tylt will take the small risk of speaking for every millenial and Gen Xer who grew up watching the sitcom: We are happy that Hulu will FINALLY begin streaming "Living Single"! Netflix who?

"Well, we thought about this in a variety of ways, but the basic idea is I would play myself..."

Below is the synopsis of "Seinfeld," per IMDB.

The continuing misadventures of neurotic New York stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his equally neurotic New York friends.

Jerry Seinfeld recently told DeGeneres a revival is possible. Entertainment Weekly's Nick Romano writes:

When talking about Seinfeld‘s future potential last year with ET, Seinfeld remarked, “Why? Maybe it’s nice that you continue to love it instead of us tampering with something that went pretty well.”
Perhaps Seinfeld changed his tune. Perhaps there is a possibility of the hit sitcom (currently available on Hulu) becoming the latest to join the TV revival bandwagon. (Stranger things have happened.) Just don’t hold your breath.

"Seinfeld" is considered a show about nothingness, often just showing the shenanigans of everyday life in New York City. While "Seinfeld" clearly resonated with adults in the ratings, '90s kids were most exposed to "Seinfeld" in syndication. At one point, it was nearly impossible not to find a rerun of "Seinfeld" on cable at any point in the day. This entire bracket may be an easy win for "Seinfeld." Maybe.
