The Jeffersons (TV Series 1975–1985) Poster

(1975–1985)

Alternate Versions

Syndicated reruns in the US are cut by 2 to 3 minutes. One particularly bad cut is of a key sequence in the first episode: after Helen and Tom leave George's apartment after being insulted, they are talking in the hallway, and the scene ends with them kissing. This was a controversial scene back in 1975, but its editing was so that stations and cable networks airing the show could fit in more commercials.
On the recently released DVD of "The Jeffersons" complete first season, the episodes are all shown in their entirety, some with up to 10 minutes of cut footage added.
