Live “All in the Family” and “Jeffersons” Reviews

The reviews are in for the live versions of “All in the Family” and “The Jeffersons” that aired last night on ABC.

Critics and viewers alike enjoyed the live 90 minute special and performances by Wanda Sykes, Marisa Tomei, Woody Harrelson, Jamie Foxx, and others.

During the show, Foxx proved that the show was live after flubbing a line that took him out of character for a short time, but when he got back in the groove things ran smooth.

Norman Lear gave commentary during the live show, Jennifer Hudson sang “The Jeffersons” theme song, and the audience really went into a frenzy when Marla Gibbs made a special appearance on the show.

What did you think of the live show? What classic tv show do you wish would come back to television?
