1 Friends Friends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which originally aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons. It now airs on Nick at Nite. ...read more.

I love this show and love watching it! And I'm not surprised so many people like it. Chandler is my favourite for so many reasons it would take years to list.

Friends was an awesome show should deserve to be number one! My favorite character is Joey Tribbiani because he's so funny and no one can touch his food!

Second should be The Simpsons because that's where it all began for this successful family.

Yes! I honestly think that this is one of the best T.V. shows ever. The only thing that I'd change is that I'd take out all of the swearing and using God's name in vain and sex.

Is it on #1 on everything, this is the most overrated show in history, spongebob should be number 1, screw Rachael and Phoebe, Phoebe is weird, Rachael is annoying.

2 Fresh Prince of Bel Air The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is an American sitcom that originally aired on NBC from September 10, 1990, to May 20, 1996.

I love this show this show should be number 1!

In West Phillidelphia born and raised... The Best

5 Seinfeld Four single friends -- comic Jerry Seinfeld, bungling George Costanza, frustrated working gal Elaine Benes and eccentric neighbor Cosmo Kramer -- deal with the absurdities of everyday life in New York City.

This is my favorite T.V. show and I am a 17 year old female. I laugh every time I watch. My parents watched it back in the day and watch it with me sometimes. You can not compare it today's sitcoms.

It sucks

At least it's way better than Post-Movie The Simpsons. Hey Arnold! for the win!

9 Rugrats Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon.

Awesome cartoon! Love it.

10 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.

As far as family shows go, it's probably the best one out there. I like how all the characters are likeable and every episode has a little life lesson. As the series progresses and D.J. and Stephanie get older, the show starts dealing with more important social issues such as peer pressure, underage drinking etc. It's very rare for family shows to tackle these sensitive issues, but Full House manages to do that perfectly. Sure, everyone learns their lesson at the end and the kids end up always making the right decisions somehow which could be seen as highly unrealistic, but it still is a show with a lot of heart. It's the perfect show to watch when you just want to relax and forget about your problems for a little while.
The humor is obviously very clean so it can be very boring for older viewers but still that sense of nostalgia can make it enjoyable for every age. I loved the show growing up. obviously I don't like it as much as I did back then but it still has a special place in ...more

This was actually funny and teaches you lessons! Best family show ever

12 Home Improvement Home Improvement is an American television sitcom starring Tim Allen that aired on ABC from September 17, 1991 to May 25, 1999, with a total of 204 half-hour episodes spanning over eight seasons.
