L.A. junk dealer Fred Sanford was Norman Lear's black counterpart to Archie Bunker. The gravel-voiced widower hurled outrageous one-liners at his Bible-toting sister-in-law, Esther; cooked up get-rich-quick schemes with buddies Grady (who got his own spin-off series in 1975) and Bubba; and feigned countless `big ones' (heart attacks) to win the sympathy of long-suffering son Lamont. Based on the British series `Steptoe and Son,' the show consistently ranked in the Top 10.
The groundbreaking, multi-Emmy-winning sitcom about bigoted Archie Bunker ended TV's innocence. Its protagonist was simultaneously lovable and pathetic and, series creator Norman Lear said, `the bigger-than-life epitome of something that's in all of us, like it or not.' The series premiered on CBS on Jan. 12, 1971, changed its title to `Archie Bunker's Place' in 1979 and ran on the network until 1983. It spun off the successful `Maude,' `The Jeffersons' and `Good Times.'

An enchanting sitcom about beautiful, nose-twitching witch Samantha Stevens, who moves to the suburbs to be with her strait-laced mortal husband, Darrin. The series became a critical and popular success after premiering on ABC in 1964, went on to win a number of Emmys and became one of the longest-running sitcoms in ABC history. The premise was retooled for the 1977-78 spin-off `Tabitha,' which centered on the Stevens' daughter and starred Lisa Hartman and Robert Urich.
New York's finest make for one of sitcom's finest in this Emmy-winning ensemble show. The series was set in the 12th Precinct in Greenwich Village, where a vibe of sometimes edgy, sometimes joyous but always entertaining claustrophobia ruled. Hal Linden's title character, like Andy Griffith's Andy Taylor and Judd Hirsch's Alex Rieger, played the classic straight man amid a host of eccentrics.

Playful, popular sitcom about astronaut Tony Nelson and the sexy genie he releases from a bottle. In the blink of an eye, she claims him as her `master.' At first they lived together platonically (while Jeannie of course complicated his life), but the pair got married toward the end of the series' run. The network insisted that Barbara Eden's navel never be shown, despite an already fairly revealing harem costume. The show was created and executive produced by Sidney Sheldon.
The 'Maude' spin-off about a black family living in a Chicago housing project mined poverty, racism, inner-city woes and single-parent homes for humor, with varying degrees of success. J.J.'s enthusiastic 'dyn-o-mite!' became the show's catchphrase, and the series, created under Norman Lear's guidance, was a popular destination for viewers in the 1970s.

A sharp cast buoyed this underrated comedy about the staff at an all-news radio station in New York City. A midseason offering, it was moved 11 times during its four-year run, which sometimes made it difficult for viewers to find the show, and is likely why it always seemed to be on the brink of cancellation. In May 1998, actor Phil Hartman was murdered, and was replaced in the cast by Jon Lovitz, another alum of `Saturday Night Live.'
