The Top Ten

2 Cheers Cheers is an American sitcom that ran for eleven seasons between 1982 and 1993. The show was produced by Charles/Burrows/Charles Productions in association with Paramount Network Television for NBC and created by the team of James Burrows, Glen Charles, and Les Charles.

Cheers is a great show, should be ahead of that awful rapist's show.

3 Family Ties Family Ties is an American sitcom that aired on NBC for seven seasons, premiering on September 22, 1982, and concluding on May 14, 1989. The series, created by Gary David Goldberg, reflected the move in the United States from the cultural liberalism of the 1960s and 1970s to the conservatism of the more.

Best show ever! Has many lessons we need to learn to become better people, many laughs and comforting moments coming from our beloved sitcom. A complete must watch.

Before the simpsons, before the osbournes and before family guy, this was the best family sitcom ever!

Steven Keaton is the best T.V. father ever. This show is highly intelligent and humorous, unlike today's television.

This is still the best family sitcom, it launched the lucrative and beloved career of Michael J Fox and in it's prime it was the smartest and funniest show of it's time

4 Full House Full House is an American sitcom created by Jeff Franklin for ABC. The show chronicles a widowed father, Danny Tanner, who enlists his best friend and brother-in-law to help raise his three daughters.

Amazing! This is a really good show with many life lessons. I grew up watching this show. I still watch this show on Nick@nite!

I love you full house

6 The Golden Girls The Golden Girls is an American sitcom created by Susan Harris that originally aired on NBC from September 14, 1985, to May 9, 1992, with a total of 180 half-hour episodes spanning seven seasons.

The only show that I hate and love at the same time...

The best sitcom ever!

7 Diff'rent Strokes
8 Married... with Children
9 Silver Spoons
10 Mr. Belvedere
The Contenders
11 Happy Days Happy Days is an American television sitcom that aired first-run from January 15, 1974 to September 24, 1984 on ABC, with a total of 255 half-hour episodes.

Loved this show, everyone was great at playing their part and making the world that watched them laugh. Every Tuesday night on ABC. I wish T.V. shows that they make today,were more like these old 80's sitcoms.

12 Alf ALF is an American science fiction sitcom that aired on NBC from September 22, 1986 to March 24, 1990. It was the first television series to be presented in Dolby Surround.

Alf teamed up with Gizmo The Mogwai to fight against The Gremlins from Gremlins and Gremlins 2 The New Batch in The Great Gremlins Adventure ride at Warner Bros World to bad they took it down though it was pretty awesome to see my favorite alien character go face to face with Gremlins.

This should go first. ALF is one of my favorite shows right now. I have been watching it for 2 years already now and it's still good but I don't like it for one reason: it's always set on 167 hendale or the house. but still a good show.

ALF is one of my favroite sitcoms of all time. Too bad it went downhill in season 4 that's why they cancelled it but Season 1, 2, even 3 are good some season 4 ones too.

An alien that likes to eat cats? I still have nightmares about this freak.

15 Designing Women

All I can say is this is Designing Women, and I'm proud of these crazy people. Julia Sugarbaker still being the most outspoken and liberal woman in our hearts and Suzanne with her big hair, always thinking she's is the most glamorous woman in the world, Designing Women forever!
