  1. How can the best 10 sitcoms of ALL TIME not include anything prior to the 90s? Biased much?

    I take it “based on popular opinion” means ratings? That means that because there were more people on earth to watch TV for the last 20 years all the best shows must be from the last 20 years?

    If you are going to use ratings to choose the best (most popular) then it should be on a percentage share not a strict numerical count. It’s like when they rate the top grossing movies of all time, they have to account for inflation. In this case the inflation is the population and number of households with access to a television.

  2. Im 39 and I grew up watching reruns of Car 54 Where Are You:

    Seriously guys… If you havent seen this, make it a point to find it and watch it. It may not technically be a “sitcom” because its not about 6 friends living in an apartment in New York coming to terms with things, but it’s the funniest writing, acting and delivery you’ll ever see.

  3. Friends is a great show, but definitely not first. How can you put anything on here above Seinfeld, Frasier, King of Queens, Cheers, Everybody Loves Raymond….

  4. You’re dead wrong- MY top ten Sitcoms of all time:

    10.”Who’s the Boss?”
    9.”Newhart”
    8.”Coach”
    7.”Home Improvement”
    6.”Seinfeld”
    5.”Everybody Loves Raymond”
    4.”The Honeymooners”
    3.”All in the Family”
    2. “I love Lucy”
    1. “The Andy Griffith Show”
