Amazon and Sony Pictures TV have struck a deal that will bring an extensive catalog of legendary producer Norman Lear’s shows to the Amazon’s Prime Video and IMDb TV streaming services. The titles headed to the two platforms are Maude, All in the Family, The Jeffersons, 227, Good Times, the original One Day at a Time, Diff’rent Strokes, Sanford & Son and Sanford.
The network premiere of Pop TV’s One Day a Time reboot of the Norman Lear classic, originally slated for Monday, Oct. 5, has been pushed by a week, to Monday, Oct. 12. The reason is the move of the New England Patriots game against the Kansas City Chiefs from Sunday, Oct. 4, to Monday, Oct. 5, after Patriots star quarterback Cam Newton and then Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu tested positive for the coronavirus. CBS will carry that game, which starts at 7 p.m. ET.

Bonnie Franklin, the TV and stage actress who starred in One Day at a Time, TV’s first sitcom built around a divorced-woman protagonist, died last Friday. The Norman Lear sitcom ran for nine seasons from 1975 to 1984. One Day at a Time didn’t get quite the recognition or canonical status of other Lear shows like All in the Family, Maude or Good Times. But what it was grappling with was just as real and distinctive: Franklin’s Ann Romano, who learned to assert and take care of herself later in life, was trying to give her daughters a stronger, more confident start than she had.
