    I never saw Seinfeld or Raymon. Folks talk about certain episodes.
    I guess.
    Green acres/WKRP, Drew Carey Show, maybe Galavant (hope it comes back)

    i m not big into sitcoms, but i loved my name is earl, malcolm in the middle.
    If you consider cartoons sitcoms, you can add the simpsons, or south park. Or king of the hill.

    You're thinking Taxi. Christopher Lloyd wasn't in WKRP (I'm a big fan of Mr. Lloyd).

    Soap
    WKRP
    Big Bang Theory

    Wow, I don't know if I have ever sat through a sit com. Part of the reason is that I have rarely had a TV around to watch, the other part is I don't get their entertainment value anyway. Wasn't much of a water cooler guy at work because of this too.:rolleyes:

    Yeah, don't add me to your trivial pursuit team ... I have a gaping hole in one category.:oops:

    The Odd Couple, All in the Family and I love Lucy. Seinfeld was the last good one.

    I think that the King of Queens was the last traditional sitcom. It happened right before the takeover of the internet and cell phones. Broadcast TV (for better or worse) does not really exist anymore. Not with the same power and influence it once had.

    Not to be a party pooper, but I gotta go with OB on this one. The last sitcom that I remember being funny was Seifeld, but I think it really went downhill after that. Plus I don't have the time to watch TV, except for my sports. I make time to watch sports. The other thing is that I love the great outdoors, so I'd rather be engaged in some outdoor activity than sitting on my rusty dusty.

    I have to add The Honeymooners, Sports Night, Home Improvement, and Bosom Buddies.

    There really are too many to choose from, and so many have already been mentioned here. Right now, I thoroughly enjoy Big Bang Theory, but I also loved Corner Gas when it was on. Then there's Will and Grace, Mad About You, Family Ties, Mork and Mindy (the first season or two), Night Court, Newhart, Barney Miller, Spin City, The Drew Carey Show, and on and on.

    Doh!
    I forgot the two Newhart shows.
    Can I trade my Seinfeld in?
