What're some of your favorite and least favorite sitcoms? Do you hate Friends? I know I do. Isn't Frasier the best show ever? Please no cartoon sitcoms.

My girlfriend had a car like that...actually, it wasn't hers, it was her dad's...actually, she wasn't my girlfriend, she just lived next door and never closed her curtains...

The only sitcom I ever really liked was Titus.

That '70's show, all the way! I love the seventies, and I am basically Eric Foreman. I generally find it to be pretty funny, and the acting may not be that great but hey! It's a sitcom.

Gotta go with "Curb Your Enthusiasm."  A hilariously sadistic show that doesn't get the audience because it's on HBO.  Plus, there's full-frontal swearing!

I don't know about ones that are still on the air, but Newsradio is still one of my favourite shows, live action or cartoon. However, most nowadays seem to be sub-par.

I'm going to take Speli's answer, but replace Titus with Seinfeld. Who CAN'T relate to that show? It's about nothing. Nobody ever does anything.

The only sitcom I got into this last year was Happy Family.  Wished it could've lasted longer!

I really liked Titus, i was dissapointed when it ended. I really like katey's sitcom 8 Simple Rules. Even without Riter it's still a good show. I liked Greg the Bunny, but they killed that one pretty quick.

I thought that I was the only one who liked Greg the Bunny.

It's a shame that they cancelled Titus, but kept The Bernie Mac Show, which is basically the same thing, only not nearly as funny.

My current favorites are Arrested Development and Scrubs.

Let's see... I like Fraiser (though I'm liking it less as the years go on), I did like Seinfeld. Um... Scrubs is okay, nothing spectacular, but I still watch it... that's about it, really.

The good: Scrubs, Frasier, Malcolm in the Middle (it'd be better without Frankie Muniz, and Hal/David Cranston is awesome).

The bad: Friends, Will and Grace.

Arrested Development is starting on TV3 now so I might try watch it.

I don't think I ever saw 8 Simple Rules (did it have Katey Seagal and some young teenage boy in it?), but I did see one Bernie Mac and maybe two Curb Your Enthusiasms, they were ok.

Currently, there's nothing.  Granted I have not seen a few more praised shows like "Arrested Development", but from what I've seen, live action sitcoms are simply in the gutter and there's nothing that can be done about it.  They just suck.

Now older shows, that's at least a slightly different story.  Favorite live action sitcom would be Wonder Years, though maybe that's more of a dramedy.

In the U.K we occasionly get good Live action sitcoms, but they rarley last that long.
but many have been good, Black Books, I'm Alan Partridge, The league of Gentlemen was kind of a sitcom in its third series, The Office I guess but thats kind of overrated, Green wing just came on seems quite good. but yeah there's a lot of crap to.

Curb Your Enthusiasm is the best darned thing on the telly.

Phoenix Nights is the best British sitcom of recent times.

I'm only upset at Curb Your Enthusiasm because the seasons are so far apart.  But it perhaps the most innovative tv comedy out there right now.  The mixture of improv and foul-language really does it for me.

I really wish I could see more Arrested Development. I caught the pilot episode, but since then, the show always seems to be preempted for "The Lost World" or something.  At this point, I think I'll have to support any off-center sitcom, just so it doesn't die on us.  We really don't need anymore "Fat blue-collar man and his crazy family"-type shows.

Mine is Seinfeld, although it's finished years ago.  Some other ones like 'Home Improvement,' '3rd Rock from the sun,' 'Everybody loves Raymond' were good.  I no longer watch them cos they either ended or they are not shown in France.

I suppose the one I like that's still in production and available to me is Spin City.

The worst sitcom for me was Veronica’s Closet.
