Prime Time

In case you don't know, and according to the Nielsen ratings you probably don't, the best series on TV right now is Upstairs, Downstairs, bar none, and that includes Sanford And Son (a.k.a. The Whitman Mayo Show) and even more especially All In The Family — I mean, how many times can you laugh at the same joke? Any sitcom is going to get a little less funny each week (to do otherwise would be to go against nature) "cause TV gives you a premise then works it, which is more disastrous to comedy than drama.
