Because this is in a 2010's board and hardly any of us remembers this. According to my research this block lasted from 1989 to 2000 so wouldn't anyone care? Certainly not me. It also doesn't help that you didn't tell us what "TGIF" stands for. I'm going to assume it means "Thank God It's Friday" but maybe I'm wrong.

Well, I for one certainly remember it. It was successful for most of its run during the aforementioned years. And yes, the acronym "TGIF" does traditionally stand for "Thank God It's Friday", but in this case it also stood for "Thank Goodness It's Funny" (as stated by the ABC network, since all programs featured were sitcoms).

And yes, there've been attempts to reboot/revive the block, but not many viewers seemed to show interest in it.

True that... they were among the programs that were popular within the TGIF block. O0 Although "Full House" was taken out of the block in 1991 to make way for new show "Step By Step." I also was an avid watcher of Family Matters and Step By Step during the 1991-92 season. (Also, in early '95, I even went to the WB Studios to see a filming of one Step By Stepisode.)

TGIF was a big thing when I was a kid/pre-teen. The media is trying really hard to resurrect the magic of old media by bringing by the 90s but it ain't gonna happen. The 90s was the last age (as far as we know) where everyone was more or less on the same wavelength. Those days seem to be over.
