"All In The Family" Premiered On This Day In 1971
America may not be ready for CBS’s “All in the Family,”…the curtain opens with a lusty hippie type strenuously trying to drag his microskirted wife into bed before her folks come home from church.  Mom (Jean Stapleton) and Dad (Carroll O’Connor) arrive in time to thwart them.  In short order, his Dad calls his son-in-law a “dumb Polack,” malignes Jews, blacks and Puerto Ricans.  “Family” is clearly a long walk from “Father Knows Best.”
