All in the Family (1971–1979)
Over the course of the eight seasons that began in 1998, “Will & Grace” won 16 Emmys from 83 nominations, including Best Comedy Series in 2000. And all four regulars won at least once each: McCormack (2001) and Messing (2003) in lead and Hayes (2000) and Mullally down in supporting. With Messing’s win in 2003, “Will and Grace” became only the third TV series in Emmy history in which all four of the main cast won awards, following “All in the Family” and “The Golden Girls.”

For both McCormack and the show’s co-creator Max Mutchnick, it was important for the revival to show Will as an older, single gay man and “explore it from a point of strength rather than apologizing.
“I was born into a family, and a lot of these things we dealt with [on TV] my family dealt with,” said Lear about the subject matter of his shows. “And if it wasn’t my family it was the family next door, or up the street, or across the street. This is what Americans were going through.”
The format can trace its roots back to the first days of television, with some of the biggest and most celebrated series in history being multi-cams: “Seinfeld,” “Friends,” “Cheers,” “All in the Family,” “I Love Lucy” among many others.
Yet despite their proven track record, and the fact they are notably cheaper to produce than single-camera comedies, most networks and streaming services

The major networks have struggled mightily for a decade to field an unqualified sitcom smash. ABC’s reboot of “Roseanne” was that show — until it all fell apart with the touch of a “Send” button.
ABC took the extraordinary step of canceling “Roseanne” after star Roseanne Barr sent a racist tweet that likened Obama administration adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape. Barr apologized for what she called a “joke,” but the damage was done. As outrage at the racial slur steamrolled online, ABC and parent company Disney were
The trend has also carried over into television. Marvel has five series on Netflix alone, four of which played into “The Defenders” crossover event series in 2017. The fifth, “The Punisher,” was launched off the title character’s appearance in “Daredevil” season two. Then
Mandan had worked on such soap operas as From These Roots (as David Allen), The Doctors (Mike Hennessey/Mr. Tabor), The Edge of Night (Nathan Axelrod) and Search for Tomorrow (Sam Reynolds) when he was hired to play Chester, a conniving Wall Street stock broker, on the ABC primetime comedy Soap.
Susan Harris created the sitcom, which aired for four seasons, from 1977-1981. The show, always a critical darling, was a top 10 hit in its first season but suffered in the ratings as it was moved around the schedule.
Mandan and Helmond reunited for two episodes of her next series, Who's the Boss?, and for a 2002 production of "A Twilight Romance" at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank. He also
Mandan passed away in Los Angeles on April 29 after suffering a long, undisclosed illness, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He is survived by his wife, Sherry Dixon.
The veteran TV actor got his start in soap operas, with stints on From These Roots (1959-1961), The Edge of Night (1963), The Doctors (1963) and Search for Tomorrow (1966-1970). He continued to work regularly throughout the 1970s, appearing on episodes of All in the Family, Maude, Sanford and Son,
Mandan’s friend, screenwriter Gary Goldstein, told TheWrap that the actor passed away April 29 after suffering a long illness.
Mandan was best known for his work on “Soap,” which kicked off Billy Crystal’s career as one of television’s first openly gay characters.

He also appeared in countless other TV shows over his 60-year acting career, including “The Streets of San Francisco,” “Mission: Impossible,” “All in the Family,” “CHiPs,” “Three’s Company,” “Facts of Life” and “ER.”
His feature films include “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” opposite Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton, “The MatchMaker” with Janeane Garofalo and “Zapped!” with ’80s teen heartthrobs Scott Baio and Willie Aames.
Mandan is survived by his wife of 55 years, Sherry Dixon.

Though he later took home Best Drama Guest Actor for “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” Goodman never won for playing Dan Conner and is currently tied with fellow seven-time losers Hal Linden (“Barney Miller”) and Matt LeBlanc (“Friends,” “Episodes”) in the category for most nominations without a win. Unlike Goodman, neither Linden, a three-time Daytime Emmy champ, nor LeBlanc, who’s in 15th
While the early years of the Emmys didn’t have genre-specific acting categories, Carney won the first three supporting actor awards: two for “The Jackie Gleason Show” and one for “The Honeymooners.” Since the latter sitcom was based on the popular recurring sketch of the same name on “The Jackie Gleason Show” and Carney played Gleason’s sidekick Ed Norton on both, along with other sketch characters on the variety show, Hale would be the first multiple winner for playing two different characters on two different,

Galvanized by Martin Luther King’s assassination, an army of protestors descended upon 1968’s Democratic convention then playing out on Chicago’s south side. They were greeted by an enraged mayor who made sure there would be no contest between his men in blue and their bell-bottemed adversaries – cops came out swinging and left Michigan Avenue swimming in blood and the smell of tear gas.
Like Vietnam, Richard Daley’s Windy city purge was a living room war – a TV sensation that ensured the whole world would be watching. It took some time for movies to catch up. Films like Medium Cool and Easy Rider met the head-cracking controversy head on but big studio releases related to this particular counter-culture moment tended toward docile
Messing says that coming back to the role of Grace was not easy. While she admits that her co-stars Eric McCormack and Megan Mullally easily fell back into their roles, “Part of me just felt tentative in terms of just jumping into Grace’s skin again.” For Messing, that feeling left during the season’s third episode, which featured Messing and Mullally trapped in a shower as it rapidly fills with water, an homage
