Here is a list of the top ten sitcoms you make a point of watching each week or still watch each time they pop up in syndication.

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Open All Hours

Genuinely an amazing show, perfect balance between comedy and drama. I love it! Andy Samberg pulls off the detective Peralta role perfectly. Not a single person could do better.

Last I checked Open All Hours starred Ronnie Barker and David Jason. - jezza0

82 The Addams Family

Hilarious! Characters were great!

83 Porridge

Most British comedies are funnier than American, but nowadays they have dumbed down.
Porridge is from the better times.

84 Entourage

The most amazing show ever to be made. Vince & E really great in the show. Turtle and Drama the amazing support. But God oh God ARI rocks the entire show and takes it to a whole new level. The set, the costumes, the music the girls, the movie stars, the singers the list will just keep going on. This show ROCKS period

makes everyone who watches it want to be a movie star. easily the best show out right now, I would rival it against the sopranos as the second best tv show ever, next to seinfeld

The most awesome show ever... You will get badly hooked onto it... I am a huge fan and been waiting for the movie very badly. Hope to see it soon.
I am sure its gona be awesome.

85 Community Community Community is an American television sitcom created by Dan Harmon that aired on NBC and Yahoo! Screen from September 17, 2009 to June 2, 2015. The series follows an ensemble cast of characters played by Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, more.

Everyone should give this show a chance. It's awesome! You'll actually get attached to the characters. The humour is witty and this show is made of awesomeness.

This show is just awesome. Every character is funny in his/her own way, and it has many great and unique episodes. Take "Dabed's uncontrollable Christmas", which takes the animation style from stop-motion films. Most secondary characters are very enjoyable as well.

It's the best show out there, not only as a commedy. It's definitely "streets ahead" of the competition, if you get what I mean. Community is a show that constantly pushes boundaries and deconstructs everything about sitcoms, succeeding every time in producing laughter. Go Community!

92 Becker

when becker first came on, I couldn't get rid of the concept of sam malone being a doctor...after becker went off the air (first run), I suddenly realized how great a show it was. I know it might seem odd, but when I think of Ted Danson, I think of ''Becker'' and not ''Cheers''

I especially loved the last episode, Ted Dansons's real live wife has a cameo...Becker reads a chart of a Mr. Nielson and says..."his numbers aren't that bad". BRAVO.

Becker is the best comedy.....Serious comedy...Love it

Becker at 96? I don't believe this? Try the top 50.

This show is awesome.

94 Green Wing

Subtle sometimes. Completely off the wall other times. The best show of all. Time...

Bizarre and surreal show based in a hospital where everyone is a wiseguy

95 Rules of Engagement

Should be on the first page. Patrick and spade compensate for an otherwise short stacked cast but it's mundane story won't ever make this show get into the double digits. Jokes are sharp though.

Way too underrated. I think it belongs in the top 10. Even though it isn't always original (character wise) the jokes, plot, and acting is great.

Great! Always makes me laugh! Patrick Warburton is just awesome!

Watching it now on Netflix. My personal favorite then cheers,scrubs,and friends.

96 Beavis & Butt-head

"#43 are youns retarted.This show should be #1.Make it #1 i'm not gonna wacth any of this show."

The only show where the two main characters die, and a decade later return! This show is the only thing that can bring me out of a bad mood

"C'mon. You know you watched the "Moron-a-thons!"

Best show ever, this list is retard like my step child who is retarded. He has autism, kind of like the people who made this list. They probably think fidget spinners are cool. Haha haha haha hahaaha heh

97 Brooklyn Nine-Nine

111. Not cool. By far my favorite show, all the characters had immediate chemistry from day one, and very prom minute character types. Jake: clever but childish, Amy: teachers pet and hardworking, Boyle: weird and… very weird, etc. I love Amy and Jake together in the newer ones, it's really nice the character progression. Great show overall.

This show is amazing... Also, it's currently placed 99th which is cool, but it deserves better

So Funny! I love this show!

It’s amazing love the show I can watch it for days on end

98 The Office (UK) The Office (UK)

Don't even know why I'm bothering with this list because, let's face it, it's a list for morons. Drake and Josh higher than this? That's ironically hilarious.

Can't believe his masterpiece is so low. Am I the only one annoyed it says UK after it when the American version should say the office USA and it doesn't

96 because British comedies have dumbed down in this century.

How is this so low down? And below the US one? This is the greatest sitcom of all time

99 The Suite Life on Deck The Suite Life on Deck The Suite Life on Deck is an American sitcom that aired on Disney Channel from September 26, 2008 to May 6, 2011. It is a sequel/spin-off of the Disney Channel Original Series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.

This is a bad bad bad bad bad bad bad show and the best twins ever are Fred and George from Harry Potter.

It's so bad because of the laugh tracks and because Disney can no longer make classic cartoon shows since Walt Disney died.

This is a very very bad show

No running on my deck. - Quigsley
