    This show HAS to have at least a 9.0. An 8.8 is good, but a legendary show like this needs a higher rating.

    Agreed. But I gave it a 10.

    You're right. An 8.8 is actually an insult, especially when you see some of the piddle-dribble shows that are rated higher. All in the Family is quite possibly the greatest show in TV history, with its marriage of humor as well as cultural enlightenment and daring. It also boasts the most memorable characters to ever show their faces on-screen, and was masterful at highlighting the painful prejiduces of our society inherent in both sides of the political spectrum.

    It was the only show on this entire site that I listed as a "10" as well!

    I gave it a 9.6 myself...not counting the last season I would've given it a ten easy. The last season wasn't horrible in itself, but without Mike and Gloria (save for the "California Here We Are" two-parter) things were drastically different.

    Taking off .4 for one season is a lot for a show with ten seasons. I can see you giving it a 9.9.
