Listen you idiots obviously office and parks and veep are better than Seinfeld, but they're not sitcoms. Sitcoms have laugh tracks. Seinfeld is the goat sitcom

Seinfeld for me, but I also don't watch tv any more except Sunday night HBO.

Have never heard that sitcoms must have laugh tracks, and I strongly disagree with that take. Sitcoms have evolved and no longer need them. The exceptions being every terrible show on CBS.

Seinfeld and Cheers. Depends on what mood I'm in as to which is better. Also, WKRP, Family Ties, Happy Days.

Why is that funny?  King of Queens is fantastic.  Maybe not #1 but top 3 for sure.

Yeah that was weird. Sitcom just means situational comedy. So, like, any comedy that has a standard premise and each episode features zany hijinks.

Ok, I think we can close the thread down now.  Good guesses, everyone. You were close.

Sort of, but most sitcoms still follow a loose dramatic arc. Seinfeld' "a show about nothing" was more the exception than the rule. Friends, Cheers, Office all followed arcs as they aged. I agree you don't need a laugh track.

This thread would be more interesting if it's was "second best sitcom." Seinfeld is obviously the best and it's not even close.

Second place would probably be Cheers although many younger people would argue Friends. The Cosby Show is way up there and doesn't get enough love these days. Office, Modern Family, Frazier, Mad About You, and King of Queens probably round out the next tier.

I don't get people who like shows like Big Bang Theory and That 70s Show. Never found them that funny.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.
