(KGTV) - The hit “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” returns to ABC for a second episode Wednesday night.

Jimmy Kimmel and Norman Lear are bringing two pioneering comedies from the 1970s back to the small screen for live shows.

“All in the Family” unites Woody Harrelson, Marisa Tomei and Ellie Kemper in the groundbreaking roles.

“Good Times” stars Viola Davis, Tiffany Haddish, and Andre Braugher. Jay Pharoah tackles the part of their son JJ.

“There might be a few Dyn-o-mites,” he said.

“What’s the adrenaline gonna be like right before you go out there,” First Look’s Chris Connelly asked Viola Davis.

“You say adrenaline, I say nerves. I say sheer fear - but you know what? It is exciting to me because I have a 31-year career. I come from the theater,” said Davis.

You can watch the show on Wednesday, Dec. 18, on ABC10 at 8 p.m.
