TV Norman Lear on Failed "All in the Family" Spin-off "704 Hauser"

Veteran television producer Norman Lear was asked what TV series he'd like to have another crack at during his TCA panel. He mentioned the final "All in the Family" spin-off "704 Hauser" that aired from April to May of 1994 on CBS.

The series focused on a black family that has moved into the former Queens home of "All in the Family’s" Bunkers. “I wish that had succeeded because we had a lot of things to talk about in that situation,” he said.

Hey I remember 704 Hauser. It had potential and it wasn't bad.

I remember my sister watched it once and said "It's just a black version of ALL IN THE FAMILY, that's all."

The show failed because viewers didn't want to see other people living in the Bunker's former house. Bad idea, poor concept.

It should be mentioned that John Amos from Good Times was the father in this.

So bad, I don't even remember it. I don't remember seeing it or hearing about it. Oh well I doubt I really missed anything.
