Does “Northern Exposure” count as a sitcom? If not, then off the top of my head and in no particular order:

The Simpsons


Arrested Development


WKRP in Cincinnati

Runner-ups: Roseanne, Night Court, Bewitched, the Mary Tyler Moore Show and Flight of the Conchords.

Wondering if folks’ choices are based on their recollections, or recent reviewing? Reason I ask is more than once I’ve been diamayed at how “unfunny” some of my favorites were. Barney Miller, Sanford and Sun, KRP, and Odd Couple come to mind. Sure, even the best shows had an off epp or so. But as I’d watch one “off” ep after another, I found myself wondering if I wasn’t just fondly remembering the occasional flash of brilliance…

I have to list as #1 The Honeymooners, followed in no particular order by
Dick Van Dyke
Andy Griffith
and a show to be decided upon later.

All In The Family

In no particular order - they just made me laugh, which is what a sitcom should do:

  1. Friends
  2. Family Guy
  3. Roseanne
  4. MAS*H
  5. Everybody Loves Raymond

The Simpsons
Green Acres
Beverly Hillbillies
Yes, Minister/Prime Minister
WKRP in Cincinnati

The Bob Newhart Show
Home Improvement
The Dick Van Dyke Show

The Cosby Show
The Simpsons

  1. Curb Your Enthusiasm
  2. Cheers
  3. Seinfeld
  4. Diff’rent Strokes
  5. Gilligan’s Island

The last 2 were my favorites from my youth.

I agree with Don Draper about Northern Exposure.

South Park

  1. Cheers
  2. Married with Children
  3. Three’s Company
  4. Seinfeld
  5. Roseanne

HM: King of Queens, Everybody Loves Raymond, Newhart, Friends
