VIDEO: Which All in the Family Scene Still Makes Norman Lear Cry?

Norman Lear and Katie Couric

TV writer-producer Norman Lear is a true pioneer — not only in the sense that he created such legendary sitcoms as All in the FamilyMaude and The Jeffersons, but also because he tackled topics such as menopause, impotence and even transgender issues when they were still taboo.

In an interview with Katie Couric, Lear, 92, says he still chokes up when watching the All in the Family scene in which Edith (Jean Stapleton) discusses her friend Beverly — whom Lear describes as "a transsexual, a man who'd become a woman" — getting murdered.

Weekend TV: Rosemary's Baby, Penny Dreadful and Remembering Murphy

Zoe Saldana

The devil made them remake it. What other excuse can there be for NBC's glossy but laborious two-part revisiting of the Ira Levin supernatural classic Rosemary's Baby (Sunday, 9/8c, concludes next Thursday)?

Outlaw's David Ramsey: Justice Isn't Red or Blue, but Someplace in the Middle

David Ramsey

If Outlaw's Cyrus Garza is on one side of a case, then best friend Al Druzinsky is on the other — even though they're on the same team. David Ramsey, who plays Druzinsky, tells TVGuide.com that although Garza, played by Jimmy Smits, may be conservative and Druzinsky liberal, the new NBC series is not about Red States vs. Blue States. Ramsey talks about why highly politicized, current legal issues make the show relevant, and how he hopes it'll open up people to conservations.

Adrienne Barbeau Gets Ready to Soap Up on General Hospital

Adrienne Barbeau

Yo, Adrienne! She's famous for playing kickass broads — from Broadway's original Rizzo in Grease to divorcee Carol Traynor in the landmark sitcom Maude to the snake charmer Ruthie in HBO's Carnivale — and now Adrienne Barbeau is doing it again on General Hospital. She joins the ABC soap August 12 as Suzanne Stanwyck, a Christiane Amanpour-type foreign correspondent who runs an organization that helps exploited children. And she doesn't need Angelina Jolie.

After Maude, she turned horror-flick scream queen (The Fog, Creepshow, Swamp Thing). Later, she became ... read more

"Rue told me when she saw that Golden Girls script, she had to be a part of it, even if she had to lie about her age," Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, who worked as a staff writer on the 1985-92 sitcom about four sexually active Miami seniors, tells TV Guide Magazine.
