The 15 Highest Rated TV Shows of All Time

8. All in the Family/Archie Bunker’s Place

Technically two shows, however Archie Bunker’s place literally picked up immediately where All in the Family left off. Together they ran from 1971 until 1983 and was the first series to top the Nielsen rating for 5 consecutive years (1971-1975). The show launched a number of spin offs – The Jefferson’s in particular became a successful series which lasted 11 strong seasons.

The show was the first major sitcom to be shot in front of a live audience. All in the Family also gets credit for tackling cultural issues such as prejudice, politics, and sex at a time where it was risky to do so in the United States. ┬áTo younger readers, they may not be familiar with All in the Family or Archie Bunker’s place, but it has a place in television history that will never be taken away!
