From the CBS hit series that changed lives across America in the 70’s and 80’s, Alice’s Linda Lavin stopped by AfterBuzz TV to discuss highlights from her on-going career including her two Golden Globes, six Tony nominations and win, a Daytime Emmy & Prime Time Emmy nomination, and so much more.
Having spent many years on television extending beyond Alice, I had to ask what were her thoughts on some of the classics in TV and what she watches currently. Here’s what she had to say in our rapid fire-round of 5 Questions with a TV Icon.

ABTV: Best sitcom of all time, besides Alice?
Lavin: All in The Family.
ABTV: Best 70’s sitcom…but I guess it’s the same era [as All in The Family.]
Lavin: Well the best sitcom of all time for me now, are we going to go into eras, is Mom.
ABTV: Which you were on!
Lavin: I was on, yes, but that’s not why, but I just love it. I think it’s truthful and hilarious at the same time. Which I think is the essence of good comedy.
