Top Ten Best Sitcoms of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Happy Days

A classic 70s sitcom about A Boy and his bunch of friends and his parents in the 50s. This show is outstanding Fonzie is awesome and richie is just amazing. Tom bosley is good as richies dad and his mrs cunningham is awesome great sitcom deserves a high spot

One of the best sitcoms ever. they just don't make good shows like this anymore

42 Red Dwarf

Hilarious, why isn't it higher? it started with a whole new comedic take on the star trek/sci fi arena and made it one of the funniest tv shows ever and severly underated. blackadder I haven't even seen on this list and that's an amazing sitcom to. - Cantonez

This show is one of the best british comedies I've watched and the actors still keep it entertaining despite there's only 3/4 of them honestly this should be a lot higher up the list.

Unique and dazzlingly surprising every time. You don't need high quality sets or special effects to get something so original and fresh. The script is always sharp and you can tell they really care about their characters

Why so low?...what the SMEG? - espyorkshireman

43 Good Luck Charlie Good Luck Charlie Good Luck Charlie is an American sitcom that originally aired on Disney Channel from April 4, 2010, to February 16, 2014. The series' creators, Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen, wanted to create a program that would appeal to entire families, not just children.

This is so hilarious! It makes you pee your pants! This should be voted in the top ten! Please VOTE FOR GOOD LUCK CHARLIE!

Good Luck Charlie doesn't have a plot except for the episode where someone has to find a mysterious crystal, but none of the others do, many people love it because of how families take care of their children.

My 15 year old niece loves this but I hate it I hate it I just hate it. Disney Channel Is trying to make their shows funnier than the old ones but from 2010-2014 I Think The People who work at the Disney Channel Studios are just damn stupid.

Ok, this is the ONLY, I repeat ONLY modern Disney sitcom that I like. This show is actually GOOD, and for once the actors can ACT. - Minecraftcrazy530

Yay my childhood!

44 Boy Meets World Boy Meets World

Are you kidding me this has to be the best show ever

Best show ever. Hilarious all the way through as it expresses life and passion. I think Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel did a great job along with the rest of the cast.

This show was my childhood, it's hilarious and so entertaining. Definitely the best show ever! This will always be my favorite show.

Why is this show so ranked down? This show is legendary, it ran for 7 years! Will Friedle was absolutely hilarious!

45 Will and Grace Will and Grace Will & Grace is an American sitcom created by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan about the relationship between best friends Will Truman (Eric McCormack), a gay lawyer, and Grace Adler (Debra Messing), a straight interior designer. It was broadcast on NBC from September 21, 1998 to May 18, 2006, for a total more.

Karen and Jack were very funny on this show. Will and Grace did have their moments where they were funny sometimes but Karen and Jack are the ones who really stole the show. I especially loved how other characters always joked about Karen being evil like saying she was a witch and a vampire and even in one episode she herself claimed that she made some kind of deal with the devil so that she would live forever haha.

Um... THIS IS ONLY THE GREATEST SHOW ON TELEVISION! The humor, the wit, the character interaction, and the story for it's time was pure gold. I watch this show at least once a day if not for episodes at a time, I know every line.

Will and Grace is the best sitcom ever made! It's never boring like a lot of the ones, and it tackles major social issues (With a smile and a laugh) No other show does that.. :) And yes, Karen Walker does indeed rule! Laugh out loud

Corny as hell

46 Roseanne

Roseanne is the best show EVER.. How can it be so low on the list?
Laurie metcalf, john goodman and roseanne made that show incredible
No other shows compete in my opinion : )

WHAT?!?!? Number 29? It is, perhaps, the only believable sitcom ever, (UNTIL the last season) but the other seasons trumped that one!

Hello this is the best show ever! Its hilarious and still serious at the same time I love Jackie and Darlene

Can't stand it deserves to be last

47 Mr. Bean Mr. Bean The title character, played by Rowan Atkinson, is a childish buffoon who brings various unusual schemes and contrivances to everyday tasks. He lives alone at the address of Flat 2, 12 Arbour Road, Highbury, and is almost always seen in his trademark tweed jacket and a skinny red tie. He also usually more.

Rowan Atkinson gives a phenomenal and hilarious performance as Mr. Bean.

British comedy at its best, it's a family sitcom, no bad stuff for kids, and a laugh for everyone, Rowan Atkinson is the one and only, it's a true shame its stopped now.

This show is hilarious. Mr bean is a man who hardly talks and goes on adventures usually stuffing things up and causing disaster in the wake. Mr bean is a show that every person should watch

This show is complete genius. Think about it, a sitcom that rarely uses any words. Rowan Atkinson is a comical genius.

This show has one of the best ensemble casts in a sitcom--bar none! An office of quirky, funny, and relatable characters. Re-live the hilarity through Instant Netflix.

Come on, this show should be right up there with Seinfeld, not number 1, i would say number 2. Not enough people know about or remember this show. RIP PHIL HARTMAN.

Should be at least on the Top 5... The first three seasons were as good as a sitcom can be.

It's always been underrated, even here. Should be in the first 10 easily

49 New Girl New Girl New Girl is an American sitcom television series that premiered on Fox on September 20, 2011. Developed by Elizabeth Meriwether under the working title Chicks & Dicks, the series revolves around a kooky teacher Jess after she moves into a Los Angeles loft with three men, Nick, Schmidt, and Winston; more.

Zooey Deschanel's character is really cute and she's not afraid of nerdy glasses or making fool of herself. - alinaschneider

It's a great show can't believe it's not in the top 10! Nick and Schmidt are hilarious and it's impossible not to love Jess

Best unique comedy.. Almost like seinfeld without a concept.. and good

Laugh out loud funny. Definitely in my top 10. Funnier than Friends ever was.

50 The Dick Van Dyke Show

I believe the old shows (Dick Van Dyke and I Love Lucy) are being shorted on this list since they are from so long ago. Both easily belong in the top 10 list - the writing was superb for both series.

Amazing this wasn't on the list. Best ensemble cast of all time (DVD, MTM, Maury Amsterdam, Carl Reiner, Rose Marie, Richard Deacon)

Superb writing, superb acting. The average person could see himself in these sorts of situations.

Incredible writing, acting and hilarious situations. I recently purchased 86 episodes. The Dick Van Dyke Show will always be Number One in my books! A wonderful collaboration of amazing talents.

51 George Lopez George Lopez

Oh my god, are you kidding me, 69, I would have at least guessed it was in the top 20, but 69, come on people, this is one of the best and funniest shows I have ever seen in my life. George is funny, Benny's a drunk, and Max and Carmen are annoying, can't get enough of George picking on his own kids.

come on 102nd I think it should be at least in the top 10

Funny family show! Raymond and George Lopez are our favorites!

This is the best show. George is hilarious.10/10.

52 Kenan & Kel Kenan & Kel Kenan & Kel is an American teen sitcom created by Kim Bass for Nickelodeon. It starred the two well-liked All That cast members Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell.

Brilliant children's comedy.

Could be higher on the list

WHAT?!?!? WHY? HOW!... "££$! **##@

This is way way too low I was actually going through the list trying to find this.
I am very dissapointed world.

Drake and Josh a white lesser entertaining duo and they're up with the cream of the crop.
i am just so ashamed of thhe human race right now, from the little boy who grey up watching these old legends brightening my days after school without fail. I am heart broken

p.s I am now 23

53 Joey

If this show had not been cut it would have been the best ever. matt leblanc was perfection in his role as joey from friends...

This is one of the best sitcoms ever jajaj it almost made me forget FRIENDS (unforgettable)!

54 Family Matters Family Matters

The faces that Carl makes, is just hilarious!

Steve is very funny

Did I do that?


55 Da Ali G Show

Not a sitcom.

56 Family Ties


I don't know how people don't rate. It's the best show ever without any doubt. Nowadays, no sitcoms really say anything about our social problems, but Family Ties used to point at those problems.

Good show with really Bad acting. Anything with Meredith Baxter is suspect.

Amazing show! Almost cried at the finale

57 Raising Hope

You can learn American conscience from this show. As a foreigner living far from the states, I wish to see American people like the characters on this show. Crazy but caring, laid back but hard working to support the people they love.

Simply hilarious I every single way

Absolutely fantastic show hilarious characters. I watch this all the time and wish more episodes were out it's the greateset

Aw - Ilovedolphins4b

58 Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I wouldn't call it a sit com but it's excellent none the less. The vampire fight scenes are pretty cool but what makes this show so great are the interactions between characters.

Way too violent and disturbing, it has bad effects on your life.

Why is this Fantasy in a Comedy list? It had some humour, but not enough to be a comedy, let alone a sitcom. - GodSlayer

I thought this was more of a fantasy show than comedy but whatever.

59 My Name Is Earl

Always cracks me up. Earl's trying to be a better person is always funny and creative.

Creative, good morals, GREAT characters, very good plots. With some dark points in the third season is still in the top 3.

A noble enterprise done with humor and sometimes pathos. - mgenet

I'm surprised at myself for enjoying this so much. - GodSlayer

60 IT Crowd

The IT Crowd is so funny. I love every episode. I wish more sitcoms could be as original as this. Coming from the same team as Father Ted, it still equals it and is brilliant in its own right.

How is this show not up higher at least number 2 behind seinfeld it is very funny and the whole show builds up to an apex of funny (much like seinfeld. fourth season sucked though.

I understand why most Americans didn't watch it when it first aired, but it's on Netflix now. Watch it! Hysterically funny; should be Top 10.

This sitcom should ne much higher up! It gives credit to intelligent computer geeks and shows them as quirky but loveable
