The best TV shows for the family to watch together in the past 60 years.

The Top Ten

1 The Andy Griffith Show

Barney made the show in my opinion. I love the other characters too of course but Barney was hilarious.

Best show of all time my kids and grandchildren love it

I think the Andy Griffith show was absolute genius and brilliant casting chemistry at its best. Still a pleasure to watch. Funny and wonderful in every way. I still watch it daily.The very best.

Heart warming and sappy. Who doesn't like the antics of Barney Fife and the rest of the Mayberry oddballs? - kayebea

2 I Love Lucy

Lucy is great, this is one of my top 3 shows of all time! Friends & The Big bang Theory are excellent, but I wouldn't call them family shows. Also, Lucy is such an easy watch, it has a relaxed feeling to it, but it still is a comedy show and probably one of the funniest! Watch I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show or Here's Lucy and you will enjoy yourself. Lucille Ball will not let you down.

This show stood it's time, I'm a teenager and it's my third favourite show, will not disappoint families.

I Love Lucy! I never pop out when this is on, and it's still poopular today.

N.B. for those who don't get that joke, I do know how to spell. It's a joke from the episode "Lucy Does A T.V. commercial. "

Two BFF's show their loyalty and love in this hilarious sit-com that paved the way for many more great comedies to come. - kayebea

My favorite show! It never gets old. Also Ethel is such a fun character even better than Lucy in my opinion.

I like full house because it shows the audience that families can be great

I am surprised how this isn't number one cause it teaches people life lessons and it definitely shows it's creativity and hard work in it,this show is so great that there will be Fuller House
