Famous cast sticks the live-TV landing in Norman Lear's "All in the Family", "The Jeffersons"

Jimmy Kimmel, Norman Lear, and a great cast and director aced a daunting high-wire act Wednesday, presenting re-created episodes of two groundbreaking Lear sitcoms on live TV. From the evocative sets to the memorable characters, ABC’s “Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s ‘All in the Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons’” recaptured the energy, humor and thought-provoking engagement on race, sex and other charged issues that made Lear's comedies an influential cultural phenomenon when they premiered in the 1970s. "I imagined this would be great and I just can't believe how great it was and how great you all were," Kimmel said at the end of the special, standing in the familiar Bunker living room-a great set re-creation-with the full cast. The presentation, a project close to the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host's heart, offered a robust rebuttal to those who say Lear's cutting-edge comedies would be too offensive to be revived today. The scripts were presented in their original form, complete with Archie Bunker's slurs against blacks, Jews and women, although the use of the N-word by George Jefferson and his black neighbor, Helen Willis, was bleeped in the new version.

Lori Loughlin never mentioned as Jimmy Kimmel interviews ‘Full House’ co-star Bob Saget

Jimmy Kimmel chose not to address the legal troubles of “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin during his sit-down with her co-star, Bob Saget, on Tuesday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Lori appeared on “Full House” with Saget for seven seasons (1987-1995), playing morning show co-host Rebecca Katsopolis or as fans of the show remember her, “Aunt Becky.” They both reprised their roles in the recent Netflix reboot “Fuller House,” which is ending this year. On Tuesday morning, authorities said 50 people including Loughlin and actress Felicity Huffman were tied to what was called the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.” Loughlin, 54, was accused of paying $500,000 to get her daughter accepted at the University of Southern California through the school’s rowing program despite her daughter having never participated in the sport. The appearance by Saget, 62, on Kimmel's show was apparently just a coincidence. Saget was there to promote his new show, and Kimmel a friend of Saget's never asked him about the controversy involving Loughlin. He also mocked Donald Trump Jr. for mocking Loughlin and Huffman on Twitter.
