Jamie Foxx Flubs Line During ‘All in the Family’ Remake & Fixes It like a Boss

Jamie Foxx made TV history when he fubbed his lines on ABC’s "All in the Family" live tribute special.

ABC paid tribute to its two iconic 70s sitcoms "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons" with a live tribute special packed full of Hollywood A-listers.

Fans of the shows were in stitches at the antics of Woody Harrelson, Marisa Tomei, and Jamie Foxx - but the highlight was when it all went hilariously wrong. 

JAMIE FOXX FUBBS HIS LINES ON LIVE TV

The studio audience was in stitches when Foxx - playing George Jefferson -  fubbed his lines while supposedly insulting his brother Henry.

“Ever since I was a little boy, I would always beg my mother for a little brother. But you know, we were broke, so all we could afford was you.” said Foxx.

50 years after its premiere Norman Lear's take on blue-collar America in the 70s is still surprisingly relevant.

THE CAST WAS IN STITCHES

While some of Foxx's fellow actors maintained their composure, others like Harrelson, Ike Barinholtz and Ellie Kemper laughed hysterically, especially when the Oscar winner broke character.

“It’s live! Everyone sitting at home just thinking their TV just messed!" he said.

A SURPRISE FOR OLD-SCHOOL FANS

Fans of the series had a special treat in store during the recreation of "The Jeffersons" when veteran actress and original cast member Maria Gibbs reprised her role as Florence Johnston.

This was a surprise planned by the producers who had announced that the part would be played by Justina Machado.

"ALL IN THE FAMILY" AND "THE JEFFERSONS" WERE A HIT

For fans of the 70s shows, the reboot was a delight, and for those who'd never seen the originals, the live special was a revelation.

The two episodes were shot exactly according to the original scripts, and the issues of the day are astonishingly apt nearly 50 years later - all viewed through the jaundiced and bigoted eye of Archie Bunker and commented by George Jefferson's acerbic tongue.

Wouldn't it be great if ABC rebooted both series?

"ALL IN THE FAMILY" AFTER 50 YEARS

50 years after its premiere Norman Lear's take on blue-collar America in the 70s is still surprisingly relevant.

"All in the Family" presents a struggling white family caught in the middle of a changing society, and subjected to the bigoted views of their pater familias, the cynical and ignorant Archie Bunker.

Archie is prejudiced and freely expressed his politically incorrect opinions for all to hear. He has objections to every race, nationality, and religion - an equal-opportunity bigot who somehow ends up being endearing.

He was played originally by the superb Carroll O'Connor, and hilariously recreated by Woody Harrelson. We sure could use a show like that again.
