Please return with a reunion...

Zxm you have no taste in whats funny, friend is far better than seinfeld and guess what, IT IS ON TOP WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT SO SHUT UP

They had a reunion a few years ago I thought.

2 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.

If I counted how many time I laughed while watching this show it will be a few thousand times... even thinking about sheldon or howard makes me laugh a little... but seriously #11? that's nowhere near what its true rating must be... in my opinion it must be #1 but I'm not gonna challenge it because people like what they like... and by the way FRIENDS is #2 for me... again my opinion

! It's actually spooky how a show can make you laugh so hard! Beats Friends anyday. Should be #1! (by the way I laughed more in the titanic film than in How I Met Your Mother- I laughed once)

The big bang theory should be #1 I mean what TVs show can top rock, paper, sissors, lizards, spock

Friends is better than TAHM but it is way less funny than TAHM

Charlie sheen is hillarious, ahton kutcher is hillarious and jon cryer is hillarious and angus is hillairious at times too.
