Actually they did not, this show did not start until very early in the 1980's (and was only on one season at that).

Although there is one other show left off the list, although it too was only on for one season in the 1970's:

"All's Fair" (I think that was the name of that show, it starred, Bernadette Peters in comedy situated in D.C. and she worked, I do believe for a U.S. Representative).

I chose "Maude" as my favorite, although my second would have to be "All In The Family".

I thought the funniest moments on Sanford & Son were when he was bickering with Aunt Esther - he'd make some insult about her looks, and she'd respond with, "Watch it sucka!"  ;D

Honestly, I love them all. I can't pick one over the others. Norman Lear was one of the most prolific producers out there. I wish there were more like him today.
