    I'm sorry, but Mr. Carlson never did any such thing. It NEVER HAPPENED. The Alex P. Keaton on speed episode was excellent, but more because it was off the charts for unintentional comedy. The Saved By The Bell where Jesse was on drugs certainly foreshadowed Elizabeth Berkley's "excellent" performance in "Showgirls." Blossom was just plain terrible and M*A*S*H lost its fastball when Dr. Sidney Whathisname started showing up and shrinking everyone's heads. By the time I stopped watching the Cosby Show, I had been lectured so much I had a Ph. D. in how to suck the joy out of a TV comedy.

    Re: "Cheers" vs. "Seinfeld"

    When I worked in TV, we ran Cheers every night after the 10:00 news for about 5 years. The we replaced it with Seinfeld.

    So, I have seen every episode of both shows multiple times.

    Seinfeld in a landslide, but the two shows actually have some similarities.

    The two best TV entrances, Norm and Kramer. the two most self absorbed lead characters, Jerry and Sam.

    But the quirkiness of the characters like Newman and Puddy make Seinfeld unique. I named my softball team the Newman's. Puddy telling Elaine she was going to Hell, the face painting, Elaine's bosses, The pick.

    All memorable and funny as hell.

    Back in college, I named my intramural softball team Gary's Olde Towne Tavern. But that was before Seinfeld came along. Now I would probably name it Marble Rye or Dolores.

    Our college softball team was "Smell The Glove." I preferred that one to the name of the work team when I worked at the movie theater, "The Master Batters." If I went with a Seinfeld theme, I'd probably call my team "Serenity Now!"

    They're both just so great, but I'd have to give the edge to Seinfeld.

    Does anybody remember the BBC's version of Coupling? Oh man that was a great show!
    Witty signature.

    "Coupling" UK was a good show. Of course they really botched the American version. I'm just glad they were able to a good job translating "The Office" for the US.

    For me:

    Seinfeld
    MASH
    Cheers
    Taxi
    Frasier
    All in the Family
    ...and the hilarious and underappreciated NewsRadio (pre-Jon Lovitz).

    You hated the name because you hit like a girl.

    Night Court? Lamest sitcom ever.

    I couldn't see the ball properly. My eyes were still teared up after watching you misplay another ground ball.
