Maude is an American sitcom that was originally broadcast on the CBS network from September 12, 1972 until April 23, 1978.
The program was a spin-off of All in the Family, on which Beatrice Arthur had made two appearances as the character of Maude, Edith Bunker's cousin; like All in the Family, Maude was a sitcom with topical storylines created by producer Norman Lear.
Randall was first, and correct, with:
all in the family

"Maude" was a spin-off of "All in the Family." I enjoyed both shows, while at the same time recognizing that my father was the Archie Bunker of Lumberton, NJ, and inspiring my then and current political and humanitarian beliefs.

That show was spun off of All in the Family!!! On a personal note, my
dad was a huge bigot, racist as they come.......he couldn't STAND Archie
Bunker!!! Wouldn't let us watch it when he was around. I've never
understood it. Maybe he was just jealous that Archie said out loud what
bigots like my dad were afraid to say in general public. They sure as
hell aren't afraid now!!!
Lois Of Oregon replied:
Back in the 70's Norman Lear was the god of Television, and the fall line up read like biblical geneology; And lo, Archie Bunker begat Maude, and Maude begat...and on and on, and it was good, but I still missed Star Trek.
Apparently there is some kinda DATA rationing with my internet plan and that 72 hours of YouTube binge watching I did last weekend has made access difficult lately. Either that or the squirrels have done something to the wiring in this old dump, or perhaps it's evil spirits, 'cause never know if it's gonna work or not. Oh well, was spending WAY too much time sitting here anyway. Do LOVE the Nostalgia Critic though!

She was Edith Bunker's cousin, so the correct answer must be "All in the Family." Bea Arthur mug shot and the best reason to watch the show!
And here's today's fire report: 65,000 acres now with 10% containment. None of my friends have lost homes or businesses … yet. And of course…chokey smoke.
Kevin in DC responded:
I thought we had this question recently already; the answer is "All In The Family". Maude was Edith Bunker's liberal cousin, and the character was introduced on "AITF" before she was spun-off into her own series.
Alan J answered:
All In The Family.
"All In The Family" ~ The spin-off centers around Edith's cousin, Maude Findlay. She's a liberal, independent woman living in Tuckahoe, NY.

SyFy has the movie 'The Conjuring', followed by the movie 'The Last Exorcism'.
"Game Of Thrones" is the Emmy Awards front-runner after winning a leading eight technical achievement awards.
The HBO fantasy saga was honored at Saturday's creative arts Emmys, the precursor to the main Sept. 20 ceremony, in categories including special visual effects and casting.
FX Networks' "American Horror Story: Freak Show," was next with five awards.
The creative Emmys also recognized guest actors for drama and comedy series, with trophies going to Reg E. Cathey for "House of Cards"; Margo Martindale for "The Americans"; Joan Cusack for "Shameless"; and Bradley Whitford for "Transparent."
HBO won a leading 29 Emmys on Saturday, followed by NBC with 11. Other tallies included FX Networks with eight awards; ABC, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, Fox and PBS with four each; and Amazon, CBS, Discovery Channel and Netflix with three each.
Blame the 2016 Republican presidential candidates (cough,Donald Trump, cough) or the recent stock market meltdown or Americans' general conviction that the country is going to hell, but a recent poll showed that one-third of U.S. citizens aren't satisfied with their government. In fact, 30 percent would support a military takeover, The Guardian reports.
The numbers come from a YouGov survey, which polled 1,000 people online. The exact question asked was, "Is there any situation in which you could imagine yourself supporting the U.S. military taking over the powers of federal government?" Interestingly, Republicans were twice as likely as Democrats to answer 'yes' to the question; 43 percent of Republicans said they could imagine supporting a military coup, while only 20 percent of Democrat said they'd support the move. About 30 percent of self-identified independent voters said they could get behind a military takeover.
Although the numbers look pretty grim, Abraham Wyner, director of the undergraduate program in statistics at the University of Pennsylvania, said that online polls are suspect when it comes to getting accurate results. "People who are participating in an online poll are generally attracted to that poll because of some variable," he said. In other words, people who respond to the poll tend to feel strongly about the poll's subject matter, so they're inherently biased.
The same survey included more questions about the U.S. military and law enforcement. Overall, most of those surveyed (70 percent) seemed to think that military officers want what's best for the country, but only 55 percent think that police officers act with the country's best interest at heart. The numbers are even worse for local politicians and federal civil servants (hi, Kim Davis).
Scientists from the University of California, San Diego recently collected hundreds of bees around the Golden State to determine how far north hybrid honeybees, or Africanized bees, have spread since they first arrived in the state in 1994.
They found that Africanized bees - which possess genes from both European and African honeybees - now live as far north as California's delta region (about 25 miles, or 40 kilometers, south of Sacramento). And in the southern part of the state, so-called "killer" bees run the show. About 65 percent of the honeybeesthat buzz around San Diego County have a mix of European and African genes, the researchers found.
"The pattern of Africanization we documented in San Diego County and elsewhere in California appears consistent with patterns previously documented in Texas, where Africanized honey bees first appeared in the United States," Joshua Kohn, a professor of biology at UC San Diego and co-author of the new study, said in a statement.
While Africanized bees have taken up residence throughout the American South, Southwest, Southeast and Western coastal regions, their ability to set up permanent colonies in the northern parts of the country seems to be limited by cold temperatures during the winter months, Kohn said. However, higher temperatures caused by global warming could mean that killer bees may continue to push north in the coming years, he added.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has granted Russian citizenship to Roy Jones Junior, a prominent U.S. professional boxer who had asked for it last month when he met Putin in the disputed region of Crimea, the Kremlin said on Saturday.
The move is the latest example of the Kremlin publicizing cases of prominent Westerners who praise Russia or offer symbolic support for Putin's policies, at a time when Putin is at odds with Western governments over the Ukraine crisis.
Jones, a former Olympic silver medalist and winner of multiple world championship titles, met Putin in August in Crimea, the region that Russia annexed from Ukraine last year, where Jones appeared as a guest on a boxing television show.
In televised comments, the boxer had told Putin that a Russian passport would make it easier for him to travel to Russia and that he hoped he could "build a bridge" between Russia and the United States.
GoDaddy Inc prevailed in a cybersquatting lawsuit brought by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which accused the Internet domain registrar of illegally profiting off its trademarks, including for the Oscar telecasts.
In a 129-page decision on Thursday, U.S. District Judge Andre Birotte in Los Angeles said the Academy failed to show that GoDaddy acted in bad faith by letting customers purchase 293 domain names such as academyawards.net, oscarsredcarpet.com, billycrystal2012oscars.com and theoscargoestothehangover.com.
The Academy sued GoDaddy in 2010, accusing the Scottsdale, Arizona-based company of letting customers "park" their pages on the Internet and share in revenue collected from advertising on those pages.
It sought statutory damages of $100,000 per infringement, equal to more than $29 million, court papers showed.
Birotte, however, said GoDaddy "reasonably relied" on its users' representations that their domain registrations did not infringe any trademarks, including the Academy's.

Scientists tasked with figuring out what killed dozens of whales found dead along the Pacific Coast are looking closely at whether there may be a link to a massive algae bloom off the coast.
Thirty whales have been found dead in the western Gulf of Alaska since the spring, prompting the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to declare an "Unusual Mortality Event" last month.
Six more whales have been found dead off the coast of British Columbia.
Since May, 14 fin whales, 11 humpback whales, one gray whale and four unidentified whales have been found in the western Gulf of Alaska. The average annual mortality rate is eight.
In B.C., four humpbacks, one sperm and one fin whale were found dead in August, Paul Cottrell, Pacific Marine Mammal co-ordinator for the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, told reporters when NOAA declared the event a couple of weeks ago. All were found along the north and central coast.

Warmer-than-normal ocean temperatures around Hawaii this year will likely lead to the worst coral bleaching the islands have ever seen, scientists said Friday.
Many corals are only just recovering from last year's bleaching, which occurs when warm waters prompt coral to expel the algae they rely on for food, said Ruth Gates, the director of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology. The phenomenon is called bleaching because coral lose their color when they push out algae.
The island chain experienced a mass bleaching event in 1996, and another one last year. This year, ocean temperatures around Hawaii are about 3 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal, said Chris Brenchley, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Honolulu.
Bleaching makes coral more susceptible to disease and increases the risk they will die. This is a troubling for fish and other species that spawn and live in coral reefs. It's also a concern for Hawaii's tourism-dependent economy because many travelers come to the islands to enjoy marine life.

"Mike's Happy Movie" was the working title of Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next," but few would consider its examination of American ills - from runaway college tuition to mass incarceration - the stuff of bubbly, feel-good delight.
Yet "Where to Invade Next," in which Moore plunders foreign (mostly European) ideas like Italy's government-mandated vacation or Portugal's decriminalized drug use to bring back home to America, has an unmistakable whiff of hope.
Yes, Moore, that passionately voluble critic and left-wing icon, is feeling a wind at his back. Moore's first film in six years, he says, was partly inspired by change he's witnessed in recent years, from the Occupy Wall Street movement to the success of marriage equality.
In "Where to Invade Next," which Moore is currently shopping for distribution, he travels to various countries seeking smarter ways to educate, police and work. "Instead of sending in the Marines," he says in the film, "send in me."

The head of the US Navy on Friday criticized a Marine Corps study that found all-male combat teams performed better than those that included women.
The experiment has caused a stir in the US military because it raises questions about the efficacy of female frontline fighters just as the armed services are preparing to open all combat positions to women next year.
During the three-month trial, a Marine battalion was divided into all-male and "gender-integrated" teams who performed a series of demanding tasks and training exercises in the sweltering California desert.
Experimenters found that the men-only squads performed better on 69 percent of tasks, and women troops were more likely to get injured.
But speaking on National Public Radio (NPR), Navy Secretary Ray Mabus suggested the study may have been flawed.
