    Got to thinking about poor ol' Don Knotts today. Across the span of his career, he went from starring in arguably the best sitcom of all time, "The Andy Griffith Show", to undoubtedly, IMO, the worst, "Three's Company".

    Anyhow, them's my picks for best and worst sitcoms. How about you?

    Best: Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Curb Your Enthusiasm (though that's not really a sitcom), Get a Life, Arrested Development

    Worst: The Single Guy, anything on TGIF after the original 4 were gone (Full House,My 2 Dads, Perfect Strangers, Just the Ten of Us), Will & Grace (not gay-bashing, it's just genuinely unfunny to me).

    Which M*A*S*H episodes do you like better-the earlier ones with Trapper & Henry or the later ones with Col. Potter & BJ?

    For me, it's BECAUSE of the Gay issues that the sitcom is horrible. :-/

    Favs: Family Ties, Cheers, Friends, Scrubs, Will and Grace. I started watching W&G about a year ago because of Debra Messing. The show has grown on me, and while I'm no fan of the homosexual lifestyle, it is a funny show, IMO.

    Worst: Facts of Life, Eight is Enough, pretty much everything on today.

    Did everyone forget the Munsters? How could anyone forget Granpa? Happy Days, Good Times, Laverne and Shirley, Seinfeld, Frasier.

    The worst - just about every single 'comedy' that is on today. Friends is about as entertaining as a watching a tomato rot....I don't think of the cast (aside Courtney Cox for some reason) as anything other than future hasbeens.
