Just Jordan is an American television sitcom that aired on Nickelodeon as a part of the network's TEENick lineup. The series debuted on January 7, 2007 and was canceled on April 5, 2008 with 30 episodes produced. Reruns aired on Nickelodeon and TeenNick until December 26, 2008. BET also aired reruns of the series until 2009. After several years, reruns made a short-lived return on MTV2, with only 6 episodes airing on October 16, 2016.
The show follows the exploits and actions of Jordan Lewis, who has moved to Los Angeles from Little Rock. He has to work in his gruff grandfather's diner, and survive with a silly younger sister, a critical cousin, and his over-protective mom who seems to know all his misdeeds before he even conceives of them.
The first season of Just Jordan had 13 episodes, and ran from January 7, 2007 to August 10, 2007. The second season, which was filmed in front of a live studio audience, began September 16, 2007 and ended on March 2, 2008, with the two-part episode "Picture Me Rollin'". The third season saw only three episodes produced, which were later added to season two. Production of the series was halted due to the 2007–08 writer's strike, with Nickelodeon making the decision to cancel the series. In all, the second season had a total of 16 episodes.Jordan James Lewis (played by Lil' JJ) is 16 -year old who is the main character of the series.

Jordan's new love interest is Autumn Williams.
Joaquin Osmando Montez (played by Eddy Martin) is the best friend of Jordan Lewis. He is planning a career in politics (just like the rest of his family other than his dad who is a police officer) and does not like to make mistakes because they might end up on his "permanent record". He is counting on Jordan and his other friends to make him more "social".
Tony Lee (played by Justin Chon) is Jordan's other best friend, and sometimes rival. They began as rivals on the basketball court, but when Tony took a job at Grandpa's restaurant Jordan and Tony became best friends. Tony and Jordan are constantly competing for girls, especially Autumn, Jordan's new interest.
Tangie Cunningham (played by Raven Goodwin) is Jordan's cousin and his toughest critic. She is concerned that Jordan's image will have in cool in the big city of L.A. Tangie is obsessed with Tony and one of her main goals is to pass Oprah Winfrey in fame and in wealth. She has a crush on Tony as seen in all of the episodes so far.
Monica Lewis (played by Kristen Combs) is Jordan's 9-year old little sister who has him tracked down 24/7. Jordan doesn't mind his sister and always wants to know what she is doing and how he can help. When Jordan began ignoring her in the episode "Air Jordan" she asked Tony to take her to school. She has two dolls that look like her called "Ponica" and "Shonica". She loves to watch her portable dvd player, and eating chips. Her nickname is Mo-Mo.

He often falls for Monica and will buy anything for her.
Tamika Newsome (played by Chelsea Harris) (Season 1) was Tangie's best friend and a girl that Jordan has a major crush on. She developed a crush on Jordan because he was acting like a thug, but then she realized that she really didn't like bad boys. She went out with Jordan for a while, then broke up with him. Tamika was a nice girl, but she wasn't as interested in Jordan as Jordan was interested in her. She doesn't return in the second season because she moved away.
