Surely most of you watch sitcoms on TV. What are some of your NON-ANIMATED favorites (there's a separate one for cartoons, ya know)?

I've always liked Seinfeld, The Munsters (the original 60's one, not the crappy 80's revival one), Everybody Loves Raymond, The King of Queens, and the first couple seasons of 3rd Rock from the Sun were pretty good too.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of Seinfeld fans around here, though. I make references and nobody seems to get them..

I really don't watch a lot of TV. But I do like Home Improvement, Seinfeld, Raymond, King of Queens, etc.

Bottom, The Young Ones, Spaced, Only Fools And Horses, Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, Steptoe and Son, Blackadder, Porridge, Cheers, 3rd Rock From The Sun, Citizen Smith, Fawlty Towers. Mostly older British comedies, never been much of a fan for American comedies bar the ones I mentioned and the animated ones and the less I say about current British comedies the better.

Not too huge on T.V. these days but, I LOVE watching "Married With Children" when I have time. Some other shows I enjoy are "30 Rock", "Two & a Half Men", and if I'm really bored I'll watch "Malcolm In The Middle."

Do agree T.V. pretty much sucks anymore.

But some old sitcoms would be : M*A*S*H, All in the Family,Good Times,Happy Days (Before it jumped the shark),The Jeffersons,Sanford and Son.

Others that are killer: Seinfeld,Arrested Development,Spin City,King of Queens and The Office. But hell If I sit here and think I'm sure theres more.

Fucking T.V.

How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory. I love Neil Patrick Harris.

^^^Blackadder and Falty Towers are great. I didn't really think of them as sitcoms, but I guess they could be by definition. Flowery Twats...lol.

British comedy is the best!

Fawlty Towers, The I.T. Crowd, Blackadder, The Mighty Boosh, Black Books, etc etc etc love em!

Cannot stand Australian sitcoms.

Good American sitcoms include Becker, Seinfield (sometimes), Just Shoot Me, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, ummm.... Becker's pretty awesome hahah

Don't really watch tv thesedays tho, so those are all probly old and not on anymore :(

Oh, actually, for Australian shows, Good News Week is one of the few shows that actually makes me turn on the tv anymore. If any of you non-aussies havn't seen it, google the podcasts. THE BEST.

I don't really watch much straight comedy. I like Big Bang Theory and Chuck when I catch them - lots of geek humor there. And House for the sarcastic comedic value. As I said, no straight comedies here though in recent memory.

Don't really do the tv thing much, especially comedy. But recently I got hooked on watching old episodes of Trailer Park Boys online. It may be Canadian, but it's somehow very much like my hometown.

I thought about this all day yesterday. I guess I don't watch enough TV. I enjoy The Office (Brittish and American versions), but I watch them through Netflix so that I can watch a whole season in a sitting. Does that even count?

Jul 18, 2009 11:29 AM ET #13 (permalink)

Bg1 -- Of course it counts. A lot of the TV that I watch is on DVD because I'm rarely ever home when it's actually on the telly.

I realized I forgot The Drew Carey Show, Big Bang Theory, Two & A Half Men, The Office and M*A*S*H as well. Great shows, in my opinion anyway.

But then again, I like Dr. Who, so what do I know? =P

Now playing: Emperor - "Curse You All Men!"
