Reiner decides against challenging Schwarzenegger

Actor-director Rob Reiner has decided against a run for California governor that could have pitted him against Arnold Schwarzenegger next year, an aide said Wednesday night.

"He gave it serious consideration; he had a number of conversations with his family," said Ben Austin. "He is not going to run for governor next year."

The New York-born Reiner, 58, director of films including When Harry Met Sally... and This is Spinal Tap, and a costar of the 1970s hit TV series All in the Family (in which his character's nickname was "Meathead"), has taken an increasingly high profile in California politics as the sponsor of a June 2006 ballot initiative to guarantee preschooling for 4-year-olds.

Austin, the campaign manager for the initiative, said Democrat Reiner decided to bow out of the race because he had young children and wanted to focus on the preschool issue.

Some believe liberal actor Warren ...

Ousted Bernie Mac creator back from the cold

The creator of The Bernie Mac Show is returning to Fox 3 1/2 years after the network dismissed him from the show.

Fox has ordered a script from Larry Wilmore for an untitled show that chronicles the political and social workings of a government agency.

"It's such a relevant and timely show," said Robin Schwartz, president of Fox-based producer Regency TV, who compared the tone of the project to All In the Family.

Regency produced Bernie Mac, and also scored a hit with Fox's Malcolm in the Middle, which ended its run last season.

Wilmore, who won a writing Emmy for his work on Bernie Mac, was fired in early 2003 after clashing with Fox executives over the show's creative direction.

The new year gets off to a watchable start with a classic sitcom, some science-fiction action, and a couple of excellent Westerns. Resolve yourself to spend 2006 in front of the tube!

All in the Family

The Complete Fifth Season

This classic sitcom is regarded by many to be the apex of the genre. With deft caricatures and pointed storytelling, this series raised the bar on jokes with a social conscience. Caroll O'Connor starred as Archie Bunker, the grouchy bigot who was really a softy inside. As the series unfolded, Archie learned a thing or two about people who are different and how his thinking may have been wrong. Fortunately, for the viewer, the poignancy was always undercut with a vicious joke at someone's expense. Many sitcoms could learn a lesson from All in the Family's distaste for maudlin antics (Raymond, anyone?).

A lot happens in season five: inflation causes Edith to get a job; The Jeffersons move to their deluxe apartment in the sky; and Meathead ...

All in the Family was first seen in January of 1971 and immediately changed the face of television. Not only was this the number one television series from 1971 through 1976, but it also signified an avalanche of other situation comedies that dealt with controversial subjects in realistic ways. Including, Chico & the Man, The Jeffersons, Maude, Good Times and Sanford & Son.

The series centered around the Bunker family who lived in a home located at 704 Houser Street in Queens, New York. Archie Bunker was the main character, and what a character he was. He was televisons most famous bigot, crass and down right rude. Yet he was loveable, with a soft side just beneath the surface. Edith Bunker was his somewhat dizzy wife whom he called "Dingbat". Edith put up with Archie and had qualities about her that made her one of television's most unforgetable characters. Also living in the Bunker household were Archie and Edith's daughter, Gloria, and her husband Mike, or "Meathead" as Archie called him.

The stories revolved around many controversial topics including, rape, sex, homosexuality, death, and other topics that were relevant to the 1970's, especially political strife and inflation. Archie Bunker was probably the first character in a situation comedy to use racist remarks referring to blacks and other minorities, yet another first for television.

Other frequent cast members include, the black neighbors, the Jeffersons, who got their own series, The Jeffersons in 1975. The Lorenzos were also neighbors. In 1975, Gloria had a son, Joey, and three years later in 1978, Gloria, Mike and Joey moved away to California, leaving Edith and Archie alone. Not for long, however. Soon they took in a niece, Stephanie Mills, who had been abandoned by her father.

The original format ended in 1979 which was when the series was renamed Archie Bunker's Place. The new format centered around Archie running his local tavern which he bought in 1977.
