You get a sneak peek of the new actors who will play the characters you love and how crazy it could get because the show will be live.

    I actually just saw a commercial for this maybe an hour or two before you posted it.

    I wouldn't watch that if you paid me. More Hollywood liberals duping viewers.

    Norman Lear was very influential in preaching his liberal doctrines through this program. He admitted to it and used the term “preaching”. His mission was successful.

    I really wanted to love it, but...

    Woody Harrelson is no Archie Bunker - I know the idea was for the "new" Peeps to put their own spin on the characters, but NO, Woody, just NO!

    Don't get me wrong now, Woody was born to play those Psycho/Con Man/Military/Detective-type Dudes, (and he does it so well), but I've never found his comedic chops to be all that great.

    Ditto, for the rest of the Bunker household - I was cringing the whole time - It just felt forced and "unnatural."

    The Jeffersons was only a little better - Jamie Fox nailed George's character, and (surprisingly), if I held my head just right, I could see bits of "Weezie" in Wanda Sykes - Lionel and the rest of them did OK, but just OK.

    The highlight of the entire presentation was Marla Gibbs - When she walked into the Jefferson's apartment, I was shocked - First, because I thought, DANG, this lady has Florence's speech, posture, etc. down to the "T" - But then I realized that it actually was Marla, and I just started smiling from ear-to-ear...

    Because, to be honest, I thought she was dead!

    Anyway, it was a nice trip down Memory Lane, but even Jennifer Hudson's rendition of "Moving on Up" didn't cut it for me.

    Thanks...nice review. I was going to watch it out of curiosity but got home too late to catch it.
