“The Jeffersons”

George and Louise Jefferson were moving on up to their high-rise apartment in the sky in “The Jeffersons.” But George first made his debut on “All In The Family,” as one of the first Blacks that moved into Archie Bunker’s Queens neighborhood, which thoroughly irked the out and proud racist. Creator Norman Lear decided to give George, Weezy and their son Lionel their own show and “The Jeffersons” was born. Their maid Florence was given her own show but “Checking In” only lasted for four episodes and soon she was back to working for George and Weezy.
