Yeah, I just watched the episode earlier in the week. Sad to hear. Great pic!

Candid camera, initial scene from the 60s

That is such a good show. Not much in the modern world is allowed to be funny anymore. I will miss Richard's "arguments" with Larry. He brought me a lot of joy. RIP

I was surprised how old he was, I guess we're all getting old. He always had a really funny stand up act back in the 80's,and perfect hair. Rest in Peace

Whenever some radio talk show host yells "You could never make All In The Family today!!!! It would be illegal. The producers would be rounded up and shot!!!!!" I always laugh how out of touch they are with modern entertainment.

Because Shameless (especially the US version) is like AITF times 1000. You are embarrassed that you are laughing at it, it's so off color.

He kept that crazy hair to the end!

My first memory of him was when I watched Robin Hood Men in Tights as a kid. I didn't see him again until he showed up in Curb Your Enthusiasm. Surprised how memorable he was for me from that movie.

Such a great guest on classic Stern in the late 80s and 90s. Looks like they’ve all been taken down from YouTube but this one on Daily Motion with the Jackie puppet is hilarious —

I just listened to that. So funny. Richard was so quick and always funny. Another one of the greats gone.

Yeah, but shameless is not on network TV.
RIP Richard Lewis

Is that important to this discussion?

Is showtime not a network?

There were no other options other than OTA back then.

If it is somehow important to you, then I direct you to "Workin moms" for an OTA rooftop reception of pure hideousness.

Just the opening scene of the first episode alone would have cancelled AITF

Right you're comparing apples and oranges

He was on Curb again this week. He looked so frail and not animated at all. Sad when you know this was the last thing he did on camera, but I'm sure he gave it his all. We will all get there sooner, or later.....RIP

Hardly.

Norman Lear took the most outrageous themes each week, and got a rise out of viewers.

All the themes that Archy worried about back then are still the top ten **old man** worries today:

Immigrants
Transvestites
Old cars are the best
New music is not music
Women's health care
Homophobia
Gun control
Civil rights
Public assistance for the poor
Crime

50 years later, you could almost have a 24 hour network that runs those themes in a continuous loop

Yeah, it was sad being reminded by the memorial at the beginning of the episode

Oh dear . First saw Richard Lewis in Leaving Las Vegas, then years later in Curb, in which he is absolutely hilarious. RIP Richard.
