    Wow, tough call. It's really hard to compare eras with TV. I really like Leave It To Beaver though, which isn't on your list, for its depiction of a loving family with strong values. I still watch it today and think, man, that Ward sure does have a lot of good advice.

    I'm gonna go with I Love Lucy. The humor is timeless.

    People today make fun of Leave It To Beaver for it's family life portrayal and that it was unrealistic. I can understand someone from the younger generation saying that. But being raised in the 50's/60's my life was alot closer to Beaver's family then Roseanne's.

    Another one, which I forgot about, was Ozzie and Harriet.

    More great family shows emitted from the list.

    Diff'rent Strokes-I believe was one of the first shows to portray interracial and class storylines.

    Family Ties-Former hippies raising a family in the 80's. Helped significantly by the great acting of Michael J. Fox.

    Growing Pains-Kinda like the Leave It To Beaver of the 80's.


    Does anyone else miss those "Very special episodes for the whole family" where a serious subject like sexual abuse or drinking and driving was focused on?

    I was raised in the Bunker residence. That show has aged unbelievably well for all of its topicality.

    Mary Tyler Moore is an ever-so-close second.

    Hey, I'm from the younger generation, and I wish my life was closer to Beaver's family than Roseanne's.

    My parents took me to a drive-in movie of Bonnie and Clyde AND Bullitt.

    I wore my jammies, ate pocorn and ate the violence up.

    My family couldn't be defined by a sitcom, but I did have an "Uncle" like Uncle Norman on Courtship of Eddies Father.

    That was one we could always watch in my family...along with Maude, The Jeffersons, and Sanford & Son.

    I picked MTM but I almost picked I Love Lucy. I went for consistency (sp?). The other shows, including M*A*S*H*, had it ups and downs in quality and "watchability" [IMHO].

    Did anybody else watch the show called "SOAP" ??? The show had a great cast and yielded Benson as a fairly weakened spinoff. Watching SOAP was taboo in my house growing up--but I used to sneak into the upstairs den to watch it as a kid. Come to think of it, I would do the same thing with Monty Python and the first few seasons of SNL...Aahhh, the good ole days of television.

    Does Cosby get an honorable mention at least? I didn't grow up watching much tv, but I enjoyed that one when I was in high school.

    Re: Greatest Sitcom Of All Time

    I voted for Andy Griffith. Always my favorite even though I watched them after they went into syndication. MASH is a close second even though the last few seasons were not very good,IMO. WKRP would get my vote as the most underrated. One of the funniest shows ever made.
