Maude, getting her own show By Cynthia Lowry NEW YORK-(fl-"All in the Family," CBS's smash comedy hit, starts its second full television season next September, far and away the most popular series ever to be on the air and, still, the most controversial. Norman Lear, the gentle- voiced father and midwife of the series whose persistence and Intransigience got the Bunker family into the channels, is still spending almost as much time today defending the series as he was when it hit like a bombshell. The series, since it began as a midseason replacement during the 1970-71 season, has collected a shelf full of awards--six Emmys this season alone, Including one for "outstanding series-comedy" and one each for three of the four leads. "All In the Family" topped almost ev- CHRYSLER AIRTEMP Central Air Conditioning Let us give you 15 big reasons why Chrysler Airtemp Central Air Conditioning is your best buy.

VA. ery Nielsen list this season, usually with a weekly audience estimated at 50 million viewers and s o m e t i m e i shooting up to 60 million. That is the television stratosphere inhabited only by the Oscar awards, Bob Hope's Christmas Special and the Super Bowl--new territory indeed for a half-hour situation comedy. Lear has the satisfied air of a man whose big hunch became reality. The genesis of "All in the Family/' ts is well known, was in a hit British series, "Till Death Do Us Part," aired about seven years ago on the BBC. The Bunkers were, in the original British version, Alf and Else Garnett, two tight Cockney islands of prejudice and intolerance. Impressed, Lear bought rights to the show and then went to work transforming AH into Archie, a Queens County, row- h o u s e , blue-collar bigot. Else became Edith, naive, vague and generous and with an occasional flash of insight that clears the air. In the transformation, Lear deliberately created a pair of appealing, almost pathetic characters, and very funny ones. "I've enjoyed it all so much," Lear said. "I have absolutely nothing to be sorry for. And I've got the best ensemble of players in the world. . . " Even the controversy does not bother him much: by now the familiar attacks on the show have become stereotyped. While the overwhelming numbers of viewers in all age, economic and social brackets love the show, It has its critics. Crux of the criticism, as strong as the paeans, is that Lear and company have created a sympathetic monster in Archie, a middle-aged Mala- prop with a vocabulary of abuse for just about every minority--ethic, religious and sexual--around. Sixty million viewers obviously can't be wrong about turning to the biggest hit in television since Uncle Millie jammed neighborhood SUNDAY GAZETTE-MAIL taverns and created pedestrian traffic jams in front of appliance stores. But not everybody loves Archie. Some of the leaders of assorted antidefamation organizations and technically based cultural societies find Archie's bigotry and language offensive even in the Bunker context. Some maintain that, because the program is seen early S a t u r d a y evening, small children are learning to call names. Others find the constant wrangling in the Bunker family abrasive rather than funny. But the pro-Bunkers far outnumber the antis. Some find the program objectionable because of some of its themes. In the past year, programs in the series have been based on subjects rarely attacked in TV comedy. The 50-year-old producer is himself the son of an orthodox Jew who had some rigid ideas about people. Lear has admitted that there is some of his father in Carroll O'Connor's portrait of a hard-shell bigot. Before "All in the Family" took off, Lear had been a successful creator and producer of TV specials with his partner, Bud Yorkin. Their company, Tandem Productions, handled the original "Andy Williams Show" seven years ago, and some of their specials included "Another Evening with Fred Astaire" and "An Evening with Carol Channing." This past season, Yorkin has been in charge of launching another British adaptation, "Sanford and Son" for NBC. In September, Tandem will be working on a third series, "Cousin Maude." This one emerged from a script in "All in the Family," in which a swinging, liberal relative of the Bunkers turns up for a head-on collision with Archie. Cousin Maude is the other side of the Bunker coin," Lear said. "I think there are as many avenues for exploration of liberals as we are finding with Archie." Whether Lear can find enough hours in the day to devote himself to two series is a question yet to be answered. "I'll still be spilling my blood for 'All in the Fami ; ly and working with the new series," he said. "Yorkin has Sanford and Son." Carroll O'Connor and Jean Stapleton, who so convincingly play Archie and Edith, are bustling around making appearances on talk shows, playing in game shows and doing guest shots on variety programs. It is part of their efforts to let the public know that they are really actors playing roles and that they are not really Archie and Edith off-camera as well as on. "Sure," Lear said. "They know that their careers must go on after our series is finished. Naturally, they are both afraid they will be caught--trapped, really--by the image."
