Round Five: What’s the Best Sitcom in TV History — Final Five!

Friends and I Love LucyAnd it all comes down to this, the final round. Once again, some incredible sitcoms have left the competition in round four.

In a match up between I Love Lucy and The Andy Griffith Show, Lucy Ricardo and her pals won out — by nearly two to one. Amazing that it wasn’t closer considering how beloved both shows are.

In the showdown between Cheers and M*A*S*H, there isn’t really a clear winner. Depending on what time of day you check, one or the other could be on top.

Which is the best sitcom?

  • Seinfeld (24%)
  • M*A*S*H (16%)
  • I Love Lucy (25%)
  • Friends (29%)
  • Cheers (7%)

Total Votes: 808

For the fight between Seinfeld and Everybody Loves Raymond, Jerry and his show about nothing was the victor by a span of 24%. Considering the popularity of Seinfeld, that doesn’t seem all that surprising.

In the fourth category, we gave the shows that were knocked out in round three a second chance. Though they’re all quality shows, Friends was the clear victor over The Big Bang Theory, The Cosby Show, All in the Family, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and The Honeymooners.

We had planned for this final round to pit four great sitcoms against one another. But, since the voting is so close in the Cheers vs. M*A*S*H battle, we’ve decided to include both. It’ll be interesting to see how they do — perhaps one of them will be the big winner!

Tune in after next Tuesday to see who has won the title. They’re all certainly worthy. You can only vote once but, if your favorite isn’t in the lead, feel free to call on your friends to invite them to vote as well.

What do you think? Who do you want to win and why? Which do you think will be the top three?

UPDATE: Voting is over… check out our recap!
