So, what tickles your funny bone?
Me? I'm all about Cheers and Frasier!
Kelsey Grammer is a boss.
Fresh Prince. That 70's Show a close second.
As long as were on the subject of sitcoms, allow me to share this anecdote: "Friends" has always pissed me off to no end.
As a child I would literally break things If I even heard the theme song. I have never seen anything of it other than 6 douchey people doing douchey things for 30 minutes at a time.
In closing: Fuck Friends.
My favorite now is Big Bang Theory. As for the past...Roseanne.
I do enjoy Big Bang Theory, but easily the greatest sitcom off all time is a classic oldie:
It started Billy Crystal and spawned Benson. The cast was fantastic on every level and it sent up daytime soap operas perfectly. If you haven't seen it, track it down. You won't be disappointed.
I know some people are jokig but man do a lot of people not know what a sitcom is. As for me I enjoy the Big Bang Theiry quite a lot. And you know what? I like everybody loves Raymond! Come at me bro!
Actually it seems like you might be the one that doesn't know what a sitcom is..... single cam sitcoms are you know, also sitcoms.
anyways it's easily Arrested Development, with Community being of the best shows that are currently airing. Though Parks and Rec and 30 Rock are pretty great as well, and Happy Endings continues to surprise me.
Wait Archer counts as a sitcom doesn't it?... ok im changing my pick to Archer.
The Dick Van Dyke Show has consistently been my favorite sitcom since childhood. A few months ago I watched a bunch of episodes again and I still find it more entertaining than any other.
After that, I would include NewsRadio, Fawlty Towers and The Bob Newhart Show. Arrested Development and It's Always Funny in Philadelphia, while not my favorites, are the best newer shows I've seen. I didn't consider any animation for my selections since they would dominate the list.
@Contrarian: Soap was pretty damn good. A little eccentric for my taste.
It was the utter eccentric nature of it that cracked me up ...... the ventriloquist dummy everyone thought was real and the alien baby were highlights for me.
In terms of sitcoms, I suppose we could include the awesome that was The Young Ones, Bottom snd Blackadder. Then there would Fawlty Towers. Finest Britiush work.
