ALright folks you get decide which TV is the best.  And the best part is no stupid Brady Bunch.  That's right, I hate the Brady Bunch so much that they don't deserve to be on this list.  They got replaced by the Bundys.

There's really no choice there other then The Simpsons.  In fact most (if not all) of those other families had pretty lousy shows.

The Addams family TV show (the original black and white one) is one that I have fond memories of watching when I was but a young child on Channel 4 (although I was very young then so I can't remember that much). I also vote for them because I don't want this to be yet another thread where we end up praising The Simpsons. Yes we know its good, you don't have to ram it down our throats. Thank you.

The Simpsons get my vote, but just because I haven't seen any of the other family's shows in years and years... come to think of it, I can't think of any really good TV families... most are pretty run-of-the-mill...

The Simpsons has been pretty lousy at times too. But I still voted for them, because at least they haven't been lousy all the time...

Where's the Crane family? Frasier is a far better show than the majority of these. It reall could of done with an other option.

The Griffins should be there ? This needs another poll. With some of the choices suggested here and one option that says "Other".

Definitely the Simpsons. An average American family has never been more truthfully depicted (with the possible exception of the Bundys).

The Morgendorffers. Even though only two of the persons are actually cool (Daria and Jake), the family as such is still the most entertaining, satirical, stereotypical (with depth) and interesting one in any cartoon show.

Bah! I've only got a choice of Simpsons, Flintstones and Addams Family. I went Simpsons because in their early life they were a great family.

True, although that's true of any show really.

I'm talking overall lousy shows.  I don't like any of the other shows listed there.

Does the Masaki household count as a family?

If not, I'll say the Morgendorffers.

People have been saying why didn't I put The griffins? I love Family Guy, but I couldn't put them because they haven't been around as long as the other families.  But this doesn't take away anything from The Griffins.

Who is the best Tv family?

I can't think of any other answer to this question than The Simpsons! NO other family is even close.
Although, the Addams Family is always amusing. There's a British show called At Home With the Braithwaites, they're good too (totally f***** up though)
I guess that The Gellers from Friends are up there too.

What about the famly from Malcolm in the Middle? They're definately the most realistic (or at least the most like my family).

But Malcolm in the Middle is a dumb show (no offense to your family). I'm not sure if it's been announced, but it's definately cancelled. I voted for the Simpsons.

I'm glad Seventh Heaven wasn't on that list because that show has the worst acting in the world, especialy in the early episodes. I hate the Tanners too merely because everyone on that show sucks at acting too. I hate it when they make the babies try to say sentences. First of all, it's incoherent. Second of all, no matter what they say or do, the sound mixers backstage are gonna use the laugh-track like on Dahrma and Greg, the worst show ever concieved by mankind.

By the way, where're the Griffins from Family Guy???

Malcolm in the Middle is one of the most intelligent, realistic and funny shows ever. In fact I'd go as far as to say it's the best thing on TV at the moment.
Where did you hear it's been cancelled? I find it hard to believe considering how popular it is.

I like Malcolm in the Middle, although it is a bit of a hit-and-miss show on these forums. However i wouldn't really call it "Intelligent" or "Realistic" by a long shot.

Anyway, i agree with Nurdbot (did i just say that?) about them all being American choices. As i said earlier, my choice was limited to 3.

Alright, I'll give you realistic and maybe even a bit funny at times, but please, intelligent? Frasier is the smartest show that ever was, is, and probably will ever be in the history of television. Main characters were made fun of because of the patches on their blazers in grade school and they make fun of others for wearing white after Labor Day. You can't get much more intelligent.  no no

Frasier was about intelligent people but it wasn't actually that intelligent. It had some smart dialogue here and there but most of the humor was Three's Company style farce.
The smartest show ever is probably Seinfeld but MITM comes pretty close.
