ABC has set aside some prime time this weekend to re-air last night’s “Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s ‘All in the Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons.'”

The special will air again this Saturday, May 25, from 8-9:33 p.m. ET. It will be followed by a rebroadcast of “All About ‘All in the Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons.'”

The special originally aired live on Wednesday, May 22, delivering an average audience of 10.4 million viewers and a 1.7/9 in adults 18-49 to rank as Wednesday’s No. 1 TV program.

“The Sony-produced, star-studded restaging by Jimmy Kimmel of the two Norman Lear comedies delivered 6-month highs for ABC in the 90-minute Wednesday time period — since the ‘CMA Awards’ on 11/14/18,” ABC said in today’s announcement about the rebroadcast.

The announcement added that “excluding only award shows, the comedy special attracted the net’s largest audience in the time slot since the first Wednesday of the 2012-2013 season — since 9/26/12. ‘Live in Front of a Studio Audience’ stood as the No. 1 most-social prime-time program on Wednesday with 288,500 total interactions.”
