Every Norman Lear Show Ranked

Capturing the thrill of all the attention foisted on Washington, D.C. in 1992 — older Republican presidents lost power to young, newly elected Democratic President Bill Clinton — “The Powers That Be” skewered and satirized politics and people corrupted by power and money. The action revolved around the deeply dysfunctional and hapless Powers family, led by Senator William Powers, and including his ruthlessly social-climbing wife, his chief of staff with whom he was having an affair, his flaky daughter, her woefully depressed husband, and their mega-genius son. With an all-star cast featuring sitcom legends like Holland Taylor, David Hyde Pierce, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, “The Powers That Be” was a sharp, witty, and very ’90s sitcom, produced by Norman Lear and which heralded the arrival of its creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman, who would go on to make “Friends.”
