In Archie's Chair: "All in the Family"

|It was never exactly beloved - "All in the Family"- had too many sharp edges for that. Archie and Meathead arguing about the Vietnam War; Archie telling Edith to "stifle;" Archie showing off his bigotry - none of it was the stuff of tear-stained smiles.|
Still, the show was amazingly popular -- enough so that it ranked first in the Nielsen ratings from 1972 to 1976. Its long run of success brought fame to its actors and creator, spawned numerous spinoffs, and helped shape the political discussion in America. And even Archie, in his own way, found a warm spot in the nation's heart.
Not bad for a show whose premise was borrowed from a British series, "Til Death Do Us Part."
