    What's with the lack of British sit-coms on everyone's lists? As much as I enjoy American sit-coms, I believe British ones are the greatest!

    Here's my faves:

    Red Dwarf
    Father Ted
    Fawlty Towers
    The Brittas Empire

    Thank insomnia, I couldn't sleep at all last night. So ended flipping stations late last night. And ran across one of my other favorite old sitcoms. Mama's Family. God, I used to love that show. I wish they'd release that on DVD. I'd buy every season. Gotta love ole Mama Harper.

    Surprised that no one's mentioned them, I throw out Simpsons, Futurama, and Family Guy.

    Short-lived though they were, Working, Wanda Sykes, Greg the Bunny, and Get a Life need some recognition, too.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    No particular order......

    Married with Children
    That 70's show
    Family Guy
    King of Queens
    Barney Miller
    3's Company
    Malcom in the Middle

    Can Simpsons, Family GUy,and Futurama be considered sitcoms because they are animated? It dont matter to me as you can see they are on my list. Just wondering though

    My vote goes for Everybody Loves Raymond. I have never consistently tuned into a sitcom until this show premiered in the late 90's and I look forward to watching it every Monday night.

    What I like about this show, compared to other classics Friends and Seinfeld (which I never really viewed ) is that it is:

    a) Identifiable. It's a sitcom about a low-grade dysfunctional family, and it's star Ray Romano, embodies the reality of many fathers nowaday. He tries hard to help out with the family and house, and his heart is good, but inevitably his efforts usually fall apart at the end, or he just slinks out to play golf, watch T.V. or play Playstation. His wife Debra, (Patricia Hutton) is constantly feuding with Ray's overbearing parents who live across the street from him. I can't speak for all of us, but I recognize my dad in both Peter Boyle's character and Ray as well as much of my mom with Doris Robert's part.

    b) It's not far-fetched. Friends and Seinfeld seemed to me to be too surrealistic at times, where anything remotely plausible would happen, and often did. Not what I like to see in a sitcom.

    c) A well-rounded cast. Ray, Patrica Hutton, Doris, and Brad Garrett have all won Emmys on the series for their acting. Peter Boyle is overdue for one.

    Other classic/modern favorites include Sanford & Son (Hey, ya dummy!), Mama's Family, as JJB mentioned, and Boy Meets World.
