Do you think any of these shows could come back in today’s world?

 


That's a very interesting question to ponder! They are still popular in reruns.

Boy Norman Lear truly was the king of sitcom. 

 

So many great ones.  Maude.  George Jefferson.  Edith Bunker.  But I gotta go with Archie. 😂

 

Do you think any of these shows could come back in today’s world?

I would have to vote for George Jefferson (played by the late Sherman Hemsley). Sometimes I'd laugh myself to tears, he was so good!
