    They didn't have TV then. Or radio. Books were just starting to be available....

    That's a great show. Part of what makes it fun to watch is that there's no way a show like that would get aired on a network in today's climate.

    It was an interesting social phenomenon. It was written to ridicule racism and bigotry. Archie was not a man to be admired for his ignorance and insensitivity.

    But a huge part of the population made him their hero, a man who "told it like it was".

    The young people of the day identified with "Meathead" and Gloria, while the old guard loved Archie.

    Another All in the Family year -

    Ironically - 14 of the top 20 shows (including 9 of the top 10 shows) in 1973 were CBS Shows.

    It's like no one else had a network.

    And Lucille Ball was STILL getting ratings even twenty years after the fact. That would be like Alan Alda getting ratings if he went to ER or CSI Miami.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Didn't Alan Alda get ratings for "The West Wing"?

    Sure, especially when she told Archie to stifle it
