    Norman Lear's All in the Family & The Jeffersons live

    Last night ABC presented two episodes from Norman Lear's classic TV shows, live on stage with a cast including Woody Harrelson as Archie Bunker and Jamie Foxx as George Jefferson. The results were spotty, even if they claimed they were going to do the original scripts word for word. They lied.

    How utterly gutless for ABC to ruin an otherwise fine Norman Lear tribute by bleeping out the N-Word. They went on and on about how true to the original scripts they would be, but they censor out a word that was fine to air 50 YEARS AGO?
    Somewhat redeemed by a nice cameo by the orginal Flo, Marla Gibbs returning to play her part at 88 years old.
    Still, SHAME on ABC for their weasly ways.

    I recorded it but haven't watched it yet. I did take a look & it looks awful. The censoring doesn't surprise me at all.

    I just watched AITF & I didn't hear Archie call Edith "dingbat" one time! What the hell?!?
