Sad news yesterday
Sherman Hemsley, who played the brash George Jefferson on "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons," died Tuesday at 74.
Hemsley played Jefferson, a wisecracking owner of a dry cleaning business, on "All In the Family" from 1973 until 1975, when the spinoff "The Jeffersons" began an 11-season run on CBS.
I never missed that show when it was on back in the day. His bantering with Marla Gibbs (who played his maid) was always hilarious.
He will be missed.
