Maude is a sitcom that aired on CBS. This show is a spinoff of All in the Family.

Maude Findlay, an outspoken, middle-aged, politically liberal woman lived in suburban Tuckahoe, Westchester County, New York with her fourth husband, household appliance store owner Walter Findlay. Maude embraced the tenets of women's liberation, always voted for Democrat Party candidates, strongly supported legal abortion, and advocated for civil rights and racial and gender equality. However, her overbearing and sometimes domineering personality often got her into trouble when stating her opinions on these issues.
