Rider Strong on Why 'Boy Meets World' Remains So Beloved Today

Despite lower ratings in the '90s, the actor says he's "Shawn Hunter forever" thanks to the sitcom garnering a passionate fanbase from reruns on Disney Channel

While Boy Meets World is one of the most beloved '90s shows today, one of its stars was extremely wary of its television legacy. Too Late actor Rider Strong (who you remember as Shawn Hunter, the troubled teen and best friend of Cory) tells Fuse the show didn't have competitive ratings during its original run, but is beloved today thanks to cable reruns.

Strong adds that it's "really fun" to be involved in Disney Channel's reboot Girl Meets World and to bring a new generation "the same show, the same situations, doing the same style of scripts and the same kinds of jokes."
