Whatever happened to The Facts of Life cast?

Yahoo Tv Blog has a post about the cast of the tv series The Facts of Life.


The Facts of Life aired on NBC from 1979 to 1988.  The setting was the Eastland School for Girls in Peekskill, New York.  The series starred Charlotte Rae, Kim Fields, Lisa Whelchel, Nancy McKeon and Mindy Cohn.


I enjoyed reading about the cast members and what they’re up to now but this little item caught my attention:

Five years after “Facts” wrapped in 1988, Kim joined Queen Latifah and Kim Coles in the cast of another popular sitcom, “Living Single,” FOX’s African-American answer to “Friends.” It ran from 1993 to 1998.

FOX’s African American answer to Friends?  Since when?  It’s obvious that Living Single never received the media hype that Friends received.   Living Single started airing August 1993.  Friends premiered on NBC in  September 1994.  Maybe Friends was the Caucasion answer to Living Single.
