All in the Family
Are re-runs of this show shown on any channels in the USA or is it regarded as too embarrassing to now show on TV?
TVLand runs it. Embarrassing? The networks should be embarrassed by all the NEW crap that runs.
I always loved the show and have a few seasons of it on DVD. I think it should be aired more.
Glad to see it has some support. It is hard to imagine anyone would think todays garbage compares well to it.
I loved Edith and Archie and it seemed to show real life.
Classic Saturday night television lineup:
All In the Family
Mary Tyler Moore Show
There will never, ever be another lineup as solid as that again.
Edit: I forgot where MASH fell in that lineup. Maybe there before the Jeffersons?
Here's a bunch of interesting promos of TV shows from the late 60's:
Thanks Jill. What a memory trip.
M*A*S*H premiered in 1972 and the Jeffersons in 1975. The classic lineup you mention included M*A*S*H in the 8:30 slot for the 1973/74 season. The Jeffersons aired at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday nights for the 75/76 and 76/77 seasons. The halarious Carol Burnett Show aired every Saturday @10 PM for 5 straight years until their last season in 77/78. Thanks guys...some great memories.

I don't think they'd be able to show "Till Death Us Do Part" in the UK in these politically correct times. The irony would be missed, and the English Defence League would make Alf Garnett into a hero.
The classic Friday lineup on ABC was the one to watch when I was a kid in the early 70s:

9:00 PM Love, American Style
That was the lineup I most remember. At some points there was a sitcom called "Barefoot In The Park" that didn't last long.
I agree with that. How about NBC's '80s Thursday lineup that included:

All in the Family is also on the Antenna Cable Channel which shows lots of the old shows from the 50’s, 60s and 70’s. I discovered Adam 12 recently on that channel and I love that show.

I went to night school as well. I recorded the first four shows and never missed "Hill Street Blues".
The only reason I didn't tape "Hill Street Blues" in those days is because I didn't yet own a VCR. I didn't get one until 1984.
