Like Family premiered on WB on September 19, 2003. When two families - one black, one white - share the same house, they discover that their differences are definitely more than skin deep. Tanya, Ed and their teen kids are a middle-class African-American family who open their doors for an old friend who is down on her luck. Newly single Maddie and her 16 year-old son Keith just need a place to stay until they can get back on their feet. What sounds like a perfect arrangement soon becomes non-stop tension (and laughs) as the two families argue about everything but skin color!
