Developed by Norman Lear, the series -- which premiered on CBS in 1974 -- was set in the projects on the South Side of Chicago and follows the lives of the Evans family as they tackle such hardships as financial problems and discrimination. Florida Evans (Esther Rolle) is the quick witted matriarch of the household, while her loving husband, James (John Amos) is the breadwinner and proud father. Together, their successful parenting skills instill value, pride and morality in their three children who are often bickering. J.J., the eldest son, is an aspiring artist who became an instant hit with his catchphrase �Dyn-O-Mite.� Thelma, the teenage daughter grapples with school, dating and her two overly protective brothers while the youngest, Michael (Ralph Evans), delves into politics and education to become the family�s scholastic success. Willona Woods (Ja�net DuBois), family friend and next door neighbor, appears frequently in the Evans household and is always adding her wisdom and sarcasm.

Now seen in over 85 million U.S. homes, TV Land�s program mix features popular dramas, sitcoms, westerns, Retromercials and a TV-referential interstitial environment, all programmed with a specific audience in mind � the first generation of Americans to grow up watching television and features all-time Classic hits like All in the Family, I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, The Carol Burnett Show and Bonanza.
