Synopsis


Having wrapped up its first season as the fourth highest-rated network series, CBS' The Jeffersons was a shoe-in for a second-season renewal. The series remained a Saturday-night fixture, albeit in a slightly earlier time slot -- replacing its parent series All in the Family, which had moved to Mondays. Virtually the entire cast of season one had been retained for season two, save one. Ironically, Mike Evans, who as Lionel Jefferson was the first member of the family ever seen on TV (he'd been a recurring character on All in the Family since that series' inaugural episode), had left the program to pursue other career vistas. He was replaced by Damon Evans (no relation), who would continue playing Lionel until 1979, at which time Mike Evans returned to the fold. In other developments, Marla Gibbs as the Jeffersons' wisecracking maid Florence was seen on a more regular basis, while Zara Cully as Mother Jefferson began to curtail her appearances due to failing health. Though The Jeffersons had a large faithful following, its overall ratings dipped sharply during its second season, dropping from fourth to 21st place. This would result in a dizzying progression of time-slot changes over the next few years, beginning with a shift to Wednesdays in the early months of its third season. ~ Hal Erickson

    Even though you can watch re-runs of this show on several different outlets, there's nothing like owning your own....!

    I loved it for the early acting. I think that it was great and would refer to friends. I liked the short turn around.
