I'm going to interject a little British humor in my list because BritComs are often way funnier than anything produced by the US.

In no particular order:

4. MASH
5. Taxi
6. Cheers
7. Fawlty Towers
8. Malcolm in the Middle
9. That 70s Show
10. Seinfeld

Honorable mention to Coupling, which is like Friends only a lot funnier; Father Ted, which is as surreal as it is funny; and Absolutely Fabulous for those days I want to feel superior to a couple of boozing shouting drug addicts in England. :D

Re: YOUR top 10 sitcoms of all time
 
1. Family Ties
The 80s yuppie values vs the 60 hippie ethics is funny stuff to me. Plus mostly everyone was pretty likeable and were a great fictional family

2. Growing Pains
Looking back, Carol was the highlight of the show. Mike could get annoying at times, along with Ben later on.

3. Three's Company
I used to hate this show as a kid with the retro looking apartment and clothing. I think the manager wore a scarf and bell bottoms. Now though, Jack is hilarious and the back and forth between him and Mr. Ferly are great. Even though Chrissy was hotter, I though the nurse added more to the show.

4. Boy Meets World
An average, safe sitcom. The show really found it's groove when the show started to focus on the cool, older brother's mental regression.

5. Frasier
This show has some of my favorite episodes of all time. When Frasier is dating the supermodel but no one believes him or when Daphne teaches Niles how to dance.

6. Seinfeld
Of course. Kind of dislike it now though.

7. Cheers
Made me think that everything and anything could happen in a bar.

8. Bosom BuddiesSeeing a big time movie star acting a tv show was pretty cool at the time. A show I never realized was weird until seeing it much later.

9. Arrested Development
Not enough good can be said of this show.

10. Golden Girls

Re: YOUR top 10 sitcoms of all time
 
I just started looking through this thread and was like, ummm, ok, so no one listed Arrested Development?

Then I realized the thread was a freakin' decade old, and the two posts that are recent both included AD.

Wow how the "sitcom" has evolved over the past ten years. Or heck, television in general.
