About All In The Family - Season 4
By the fourth season, Norman Lear's landmark series ALL IN THE FAMILY was on its way to becoming an American institution. It consistently ranked number one in the ratings while at the same time breaking all of prime-time TV's taboos. Archie Bunker's (Carroll O'Connor) shocking politically incorrect diatribes, marriage problems for Mike (Rob Reiner) and Gloria (Sally Struthers), and a breast cancer scare for Edith (Jean Stapleton) all broke with sitcom conventions. In the fourth season, Archie hilariously faced two worthy opponents: neighbor Irene Lorenzo (Betty Garrett), a staunch believer in women's rights, and loud-mouthed George Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley), soon to star in the spin-off hit series "The Jeffersons." Rob Reiner won an Emmy® Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and the show received four other nominations this season.
