20 of 20The Jeffersons, The Jeffersons
A spin-off of All in the Family, the sitcom focused on George and Louise Jefferson, who left working-class Queens to "move on up to the East Side" of Manhattan. Dry-cleaning mogul George was essentially a black Archie Bunker who was never afraid to tell it like it is. The series lasted 11 seasons, becoming the longest-running U.S. show of any genre to feature a predominantly African-American cast.
