I love TV. I'm not very creative, and I'm all sorts of lazy, so TV is a natural fit for me. Life is just easier when other people do the thinking for you. Some of the best TV are Sitcoms, or situational comedies. Sitcoms are a cornerstone of television. I've composed a list of what I think to be the best 100+ sitcoms of all time. Of course I've probably missed some, and of course you aren't going to agree completely, but remember that lists are subjective and far from perfect.
111 The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959-1963)
110 Chico and the Man (1974-1978)
California Dreams (1992-1997) By a lot of the same people that did "Saved by the Bell;" this is another teen-oriented sitcom.
108 That Girl (1966-1971)
107 Rhoda (1974-1978) A spin-off of "Mary Tyler Moore."
106 The Monkees (1966-1968)

41 The Love Boat (1977-1986)
40 Sanford and Son (1972-1977)
Married With... Children (1987-1997) Al Bundy, classic. Not to be confused with Ted Bundy, not classic.

21 Full House (1987-1995)
20 Mary Tyler Moore (1970-1977)
Everybody Loves Raymond (1996-2005)

The Simpsons (1989-Present) #3? Doh!
I Love Lucy (1951 - 1957) #2? Lucy! You got some spanin' to do!
