I watch All in the Family, along with Barney Miller, Mary Tyler Moore, Hogan's Heroes and other shows on "ME TV". It's an over-the-air channel for me.

And it was never PC - but that was the point of the show.

But, the "Jefferson's" reruns are still on every day.
Does anyone get "All In The Family" anymore/
Yes, All In The Family is on right before Barny Miller. My 12 year old grandson was here and I watched one of the shows and he said, how could they let Archie talk like that. It was hard for me to explain.

Agree. But Archie would not go over very well today as it did back in the day. I just have not seen it in a few years now and figured P Correctness could be the reason?
Another one i have not seen in ages is "The Honeymooners". Another very funny show!

All I have is TV Land. I do not get any of those shows. I wish I could.
Yes, Archie was funny even thought he was a bigot.
He did have his nice side though.
He even let Sammie Davis Jr sit in his chair. How did you explain it?
I like Norman Lears shows.

The way I see it, Archie was never portrayed as a positive role model. In some ways he was a sympathetic character because deep down he had a good heart, but was ignorant in his words and actions. If you notice, on almost every episode there was a conflict of some sort, and the resolution usually showed Archie being in the wrong. Sometimes he learned a lesson, but more often it went right over his head.
