Three Networks? They Didn't Even Have DuMont Anymore

One of the funniest things I remember from "All In the Family", besides Archie Bunker's hilarious casual racism, was their remote control with one button which means you could just move the channel up.

It was years before my mom and I got a TV that you could use a remote on. Our remote usage mainly came from our cable box so we never had to deviate from channel 3 and whoever was watching TV had the privilege of turning it off. Man, the Dark Ages were tough.
