SynopsisEdit

Archie is polled for a "man-on-the-street" question, and it is airing on "The CBS Evening News" with Walter Cronkite. Unfortunately, Archie does not have a working television set to see himself being interviewed.

Plot summaryEdit

Interviewed by a WCBS-TV reporter about Nixon's economic plan, Archie is thrilled to learn that his interview will appear on the evening news. Alas, the Bunkers' TV set is broken and practically every other set in the neighborhood is likewise incapacitated. After numerous frustrations, which include enlisting a repairman who refuses to work after 5pm on Fridays due to observance of the Sabbath -- yes, the repairman is Jewish -- and having to go over to Kelsey's Bar -- Archie finally gets to see himself on TV -- or does he? Neil J. Schwartz appears as Levy the Repairman, who delivers the episode's funniest line.

  • Note: Episode features footage of then-CBS White House Correspondent Dan Rather.
