I'm Sure You'll All Agree

My Mother the Car inexplicably not included.
The 100 Best TV Sitcoms of All Time

I can still sing the theme song of "My Mother the Car," surely the single most moronic premise for a sitcom ever thought of.

Night Court is seriously underrated, especially looking at shows ranked above it.
(The Last Man on Earth? Mork & Mindy? Please.) Also, I don't think a show should be included after one or two years.

FAWLTY TOWERS #54? Not in my world. Top 10 or top 20, for sure.

GOOD TIMES above THE BOB NEWHART SHOW? NEWHART above THE BOB NEWHART SHOW? Heresy! The latter was mediocre start to finish. Had it not been for Larry, Darryl, and Darryl I would never have watched it. (Though it did have the single greatest ending of any sitcom.)

THE FRESH PRINCE? Really? THE JEFFERSONS was mildly amusing but hardly a top 10 sitcom.

You didn't like Miss Stephanie?

Only when she was interacting with Larry.

THE YOUNG ONES has not aged well. I agree it felt grounbreaking at the time, but today it seems more like it's just a lot of loud shouting and attempts at outrage rather than good jokes.

How on earth can JEEVES & WOOSTER not be on this list?

And for lowbrow stuff, 'ALLO 'ALLO! is pretty hard to beat.

I've obviously missed a lot of television over the years.

When I saw that they had "The Honeymooners" at #82 and "I Love Lucy" at #8, I knew this was another one of those lists of bull.

I'm not even going to look because I know it'll be all wrong.
