Archie Bunker remains as ornery as ever in the sixth season of this classic 1970s television sitcom.
Produced and developed by Norman Lear, the groundbreaking sitcom ALL IN THE FAMILYcontinued to evolve in the sixth season without losing any of its controversial edge or its popularity; it was the #1 series for the fifth year in a row. Mike (Rob Reiner) and Gloria (Sally Struthers) finally move out of the Bunker household - and right into the house next door, where the Jeffersons used to live. But the big news for Archie (Carroll O'Connor) and Edith (Jean Stapleton) is that their "little goil" is pregnant. Gloria later gives birth in a special two-part episode. Once the baby is home, two generations of parents clash over how to raise little Joey Stivic. The show courted further controversy when a real toy company released "Archie Bunker's Grandson" in honor of baby Joey, the first anatomically correct male doll!
Nominated for an Emmy® Award for "Outstanding Comedy Series" for its sixth straight year, ALL IN THE FAMILY was also nominated for two Golden Globe® Awards this season. With unforgettable episodes and special guest stars, including Bernadette Peters (Pennies from Heaven), Doris Roberts (TV's "Everybody Loves Raymond"), Robert Guillaume (TV's "Benson") and his "Soap" co-star, comedian Billy Crystal (When Harry Met Sally), ALL IN THE FAMILY continued its reign as the funniest show on television!
