A Jimmy Kimmel-curated ode to the legendary television creations of Norman Lear led to ABC winning the TV ratings war on Wednesday (May 22).

Titled “‘Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear’s ‘All in the Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons,'” the special – directed by James Burrows and executive produced by Brent Miller, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Justin Theroux – took viewers down memory lane by recreating an original episode from each of the named series.

Led by an all-star cast including Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx, comedians Wanda Sykes and Will Ferrell, Anthony Anderson, Woody Harrelson, Kerry Washington, and many more, the showing not only earned a load of laughs but saw its parent network, ABC, laugh all the way to the top of the night’s Nielsen ratings charts.

With a decorated resume of 30+ years of stand up comedy, sketch shows, and concerts to his credit, Jamie Foxx is a pro when it comes to the live stage.  As such, it should come as no surprise the 51-year-old – who was recently tapped to topline a live crossover remake of classic 70’s television shows ‘The Jeffersons’ and ‘All in the Family’ (as we reported here) – was able to hilariously recover when he flubbed a line.

Breaking character, the Oscar winner earned laughs from co-stars and from the audience when he stumbled over his words during the showing which aired live tonight (May 22).  Curious to see how he rebounded? Look inside:
