Common Sense Media: All-American TV Shows

7 of 10

'All in the Family'

Ages: 12+

Why We Love It: Landmark '70s sitcom lightens bias with humor.

What Parents Should Know: Parents need to know that this landmark sitcom features a main character who is racist and homophobic — and was recognized as such even when the show initially aired in the '70s. Archie's bigotry is used to highlight serious social topics like rape, breast cancer, and homosexuality in a humorous, thoughtful, ultimately positive way. Racially charged language (like the n-word) is sometimes used. In one episode, a guest character is killed by an explosion in the distance. —Common Sense Media (Photo: CBS)
