Ranking The Best Television Shows From The 1970’s

19. The Jeffersons (1975-85)

A spin-off from All in the Family, The Jeffersons was a very transcendent show for its time. Rarely did network television include a series with an African-American family as the basis of the show. It wasn’t a difficult decision — as the hilarity between Isabel Sanford and Sherman Hemsley leapt off the screen. The two were so natural together, one would’ve thought they were actually married in real life. As was the case with more progressive shows, The Jeffersons tackled a number of significant issues. Some were portrayed in humorous ways — while others were more serious in nature.
