30 Suspiciously Similar TV Shows Accused Of Ripping Off Another Series
Sanford and Son
Remember All In The Family, which followed working-class and bigoted Archie Bunker and his family? Well, some have argued that due to similar themes (and the fact that both tackled controversial issues head-on), Sanford and Son was a total rip off of All In The Family. Like Archie, Sanford was a cranky, stubborn and prejudiced old guy with no filter. It’s also worth noting that the NBC sitcom came out just a year after All In The Family was introduced.
