Living Single - At a time when Friends and Seinfeld dominated television ratings and pop culture, Living Single was groundbreaking because it was a prime-time network series portraying six Black 20-somethings trying to make it in New York. The show, which ran for five seasons, premiered 23 years ago today, so we decided to check in on the cast and see where they are now.(Photo: Sister Lee Productions, Warner Bros Television Productions)

Queen Latifah - It hasn't been hard to keep track of what Miss Dana Owens has been up to in the past two decades. The New Jersey rapper became America's sweetheart through a series of well-received films, hitting a peak with her Oscar-nominated performance in 2002's Chicago. She also signed a lucrative contract with Cover Girl and continued to make strides in music. These days, Latifah is playing media mogul with a successful production banner, Flavor Unit, and an upcoming talk show.  (Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images)

Kim Fields - Already a household name by the time she assumed the role of would-be diva Regine Hunter in the series, Fields continued to appear on television in shows like One on One and HBO's The Comeback. But she really hit her stride behind the camera, directing episodes of such beloved shows as Kenan & Kel, Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns and BET's Let's Stay Together.

John Henton - The Cleveland native dovetailed his role as handyman Overton Jones into a series regular role on UPN's The Hughleys, on which he starred for four years. Henton's life was nearly brought to a tragic end in 2000 when he suffered a major car accident that left his face deformed and his legs and stomach seriously damaged. Through extensive surgery, Henton's face was reconstructed and therapy helped his other injuries. Since the accident, Henton decided to slow his life down and spend time with his children.(Photo: Amanda Edwards/Getty Images)
