All In The Family TV series history

All In The Family was an iconic, ground-breaking, American situation comedy series that ran on the CBS television network. It was based on the BBC British TV sitcom Till Death Do Us Part, which was produced and written by Johnny Speight. The series premiered on 12 January 1971 and ended on 8 April 1979; its successor was a continuation series called Archie Bunker's Place which ran for four seasons (23 September 1979 - 3 April 1983).

All In The Family is about a cantankerous, boorish, conservative, narrow-minded and outspokenly-bigoted New York City dock worker / part-time cab driver-turned-bar & grill owner Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor) and his kind and loving but somewhat naive "dingbat" wife Edith (Jean Stapleton), their daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers) and their liberal-minded "Meathead" son-in-law Mike (Rob Reiner). For most of the series, circumstances force them all to live together under one roof: a house in a working-class neighborhood in Astoria, Queens.

The show centers around the Bunker household and the family's interactions and relationships with each other, their neighbors, other relatives and anyone else who they encounter in their daily lives. Their antics often result in conflict and tension, creating situations that can be both humorous and poignant. Many of the episodes feature story lines that were topical and reflective of current events, issues and influences of the times - some controversial or presented in a way never-before-seen by a television audience. The show tackled everything...from the Vietnam War, Watergate, inflation, unemployment, pollution, crime, corporate greed, politics, religion and education to feminism, sexism, racism, civil rights, anti-semitism, homophobia, aging, infidelity and rape. In retrospect, All In The Family was indeed a period piece - a dramatic representation of American society and life in the 1970s. Its language and imagery have become a part of popular culture - a slice of the times from which it emerged.

For his role, Carroll O'Connor was nominated for eight Emmy Awards as "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series"; he won the award four times (1972, 1977, 1978 and 1979).

During its run, the show featured other notable characters and subplots...which inspired and led to two other successful, concurrently-running spinoff TV series: Maude and The Jeffersons.

Throughout its nine seasons, All In The Family ran for a total of 210 episodes.
