Unhappily ever after
Frasier and Seinfeld for sure. Then I dunno, maybe Scrubs.
OH my god. I love so many of you guys here. so many with friends and scrubs:P
Big bang teory
(i am 20 and dyslexic so yes i suck at spelling)
2. My family
3. Two men and a Half (pre Charlie Sheen leaving)
Actually the only 3 sitcoms I ever watched.
Some old school ones that are good (IMO of course)
Sanford and Son
All in the Family (Archie Bunker FTW)
Some new ones I enjoy
Just because I don't care does'nt mean I don't understand
Seinfeld, Frasier, and the Cosby Show.
I think for most minority kids growing up in the 80s, the Cosby Show was one of the most influential sitcoms of all times. I don't know if it's subculture-specific, but yeah.
I'd also put in nods for 30 Rock, Community, Always Sunny, Arrested Development. I prefer absurdist to realistic sitcoms, the obvious exception being the Cosby Show above. And yes, I do consider Frasier to be absurdist.

One really can't overstate how superior Seinfeld is to any sitcom ever made. The writing is sublime and so far above anything ever written in the sitcom genre.
And there seems to be alot of misunderstandings as to what a sitcom is in this thread, Breaking Bad and Firefly aren't sitcoms people
Drew Carey Show
Nothing comes close to these shows.
1: Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
2: Big Bang Theory
3. The Big Band Theory
In my opinion, Friends was just the perfect sitcom with the perfect casting for a sitcom. I think I've watched all episodes 3 times now and I'm considering watching it all for a 4th time.
I see that a lot of people here are listing Seinfield. I've considered watching it myself since I've only heard good things about the show, believe it or not, but I have actually never seen a single episode of Seinfield, guess I've been missing out on something great.
Seinfield like 5 times over
Then Home Improvement
and Maybe Scrubs
If you include Animated Then I think Simpsons is tied with Seinfeld.

My top 3:
Married... With Children
There are too many ties for 3rd, I won't even bother listing any.
3.That 70s Show
Honorable mentions: The War at Home, Married with Children, MASH, Everybody loves Raymond, Newsradio, Taxi, Two and a half men, How I met your mother. There are many more I enjoyed, but I cannot remember any more right now . I could never get into the Big Bang Theory though, I just dont find it that funny.
