That was on ABC back in May, and aired live.

They didn't do the first All in the Family. They did Henry's Farewell, which was also George Jeffersons's first episode.

They followed that up by doing the first (regular) episode of The Jeffersons, and Marla Gibbs came back as Florence.

Lol was thinking the same thing. Sopranos may not be “the best” but God damn it’s a bad ass theme song.

I had to look that one up as it was before my time and never caught it in reruns. I knew the music but from The Blues Brothers movie. Henry Mancini though is one of the masters in Film/TV.
