    [POLL]- Greatest sitcom ever? seinfeld

    With the end of Freinds and Frasier, What do you think is the best sitcom ever made?
    I'll personally go for Seinfeld, how can you not love it?

    If you have another favorite, just select "other" and post your favorite.

    Modern day = Seinfeld / Everybody Loves Raymond.

    Classic = I Love Lucy / Andy Griffith.

    I voted "other", some of that list i do like quite a lot but to say one of them is the greatest ever....hmm i think i'll sit on the fence but if i had to choose i would have ot include the following in my nomination's list without a shadow of a doubt:

    Faulty Towers
    Red Dwarf
    One Foot in the Grave

    Some good British classics there, gotta be up there.

    This one has had global recognition and awards in recent times and i can't believe it hasn't made your list as it apparently did well in America; where's The Office?

    Also could an animated program be considered as a sitcom do you think as if so would The Simpsons fall into the category?

    One for any Brits reading this, is Alan Partridge just a comedy series or could it be considered as a sitcom? It is soooo funny IMO

    There's been an on going debate in recent years between fans of Fraiser and Seinfeld as to which is the better one, would any of you put Friends ahead of both? As someone who has watched Friends and Fraiser to a lesser extent but not Seinfeld i cannot really say, so what do you lot think??

    I dont live in Europe so didnt add any brit sitcoms.

    I was thinking about adding the simpsons, but decided it wasnt really as much of a "sitcom" as much as the others were. (please no arguments on that simpsons fans )

    As to Martin, I'm a big fan of martin lawrence, but i wouldnt say a lot of people are big fans of that series ( I was gonna add fresh prince too )

    I would again say that Seinfeld is deffinatly better than Frasier and Freinds, its just so frickin halarious and random. My buddies always call me

    Drew Carey is my freaking hero. He kills all the stereotypes in hollywood. What other fat ugly guy has a show named after him?

    Seinfeld is always good for a laugh. I don't know what show I consider best. I got a lot of favorites.

    Like critic said, Red Dwarf. That is one of my favorites. Its also one show that a lot of people never heard of. Thats to bad because its such a great show. I just wish they would hurry up and get that movie made.

    Some other shows not mentioned....
    Family Ties
    Perfect Strangers
    Full House
    Growing Pains
    Dukes of Hazzard
    A-Team
    AirWolf
    Knight Rider
    ChiPs

    Also forgot, Alf was a good show too.

    Although not a comedy, Knight Rider was one of my favourites...

    "Fawlty towers", or "Yes, (Prime) Minister" are my two favourites.

    As for Stateside sitcom's, Friends just about edges out Seinfeld in my opinion. Seinfeld was sometimes hysterical, but had more weak episodes than friends.

    Black Adder
    Fawlty Towers
    On The Buses
    Only Fools And Horses
    'Alo 'Alo
    Yes Minister
    Jeeves And Wooster
    You Rang M'Lord

    I'm sure I forgot some, but I think these comedies pretty much outrate those suggested in the poll, except for MASH, which is one of the best ever.

    Of course these comedies present classic British humor and you have to be either British or close to it to understand and like it.

    Modern: Seinfeld
    Old: The Honeymooners

    Seinfeld was great because you will never see another character like Krammer and the Honeymooners is just classic, I mean how can you not laugh at it.

    Definitely Seinfeld. It never gets old, even the reruns that are on dozens of times a week I'd also have to put a vote in for Law and Order. I guess it's a sitcom

    Tool Time was the fake show on Home Improvement. At least I think that's what you're talking about.

    Frasier, Everybody Loves raymond, Will & Grace, Just SHoot Me and Curb your enthusiasm....now those are my faves...

    But the best has got to be Frasier.

    Friends.... They were really cool.

    Friends, Will & Grace, and Seinfeld are some of the best sitcoms ever.

    Isn't it odd that they were all on NBC?

    I love watching the reruns of Seinfeld. I think every episode is great.

    I haven't really gotten a chance to watch most of the others, so I wouldn't know.

    I just realised "That 70s Show" is missing from the list as well. Another sitcom I enjoy.

    Nobody mentioned Fresh Prince

    I actually found some of those shows funny.

    I totally forgot about that show. Some of those were in fact quite funny.
