After its runaway success (and an Emmy win!) on ABC earlier this year, Live in Front of a Studio Audience is back with segments plucked from episodes of All in the Family and Good Times.

The family comedies of the ’70s are getting a refresh with new casts in familiar roles. In this case, many of the All in the Family cast members from the previous special will return, but there are a few new faces in that lineup, as well as an entirely new cast for Good Times.
