Voting Frasier and The Cosby Show to advance.

Not a lot of depth in this one for me.

Frasier is a clear #1. Great show with clever humor and often dry wit. One of my favorite shows ever.

The Cosby Show is #2. I wasn't a big fan, to be honest, other than the teenage boy whose interactions with Cosby were kind of funny. It was pretty meh.

Designing Women. #3. Not that I would really watch this much, but I vaguely remember that it was kind of funny. Plus, I kind of had a thing for Annie Potts.


Didn't make the cut:

Bosom Buddies. Not sure I ever really saw it, but I'm not into the whole "guys dressing in drag" premise. Just not that funny and is pretty stale.

Diff'rent Strokes. I despised this show with a passion. Terrible show, terrible acting, terrible writing. The funniest thing about it was Todd Bridges going to prison.

I didnt see Miami Vice listed as a contestant in the other thread with all of the other shows. Is their a reason why?

That's not a sitcom, is it? I thought that was a cop show.

Yeah, the first two rounds of most of these tournaments are primarily a thinning of the herd.

Mr. Carlson made one scary ped-o-phile.

damn, Cosby is the only one I've even watched.

But, Seinfeld wins this contest easily. No other sitcom in history can even compete IMO. Unless you would count Arrested Development as a "sitcom."

I have never seen an episode of Frasier and all of the other choices are dog shit so I'll opt out here.

I don't think Lumpy was a designing women fan. She preferred bosom buddies because she had a wet one for Tom Hanks as a pre-teen.

There's a bit more quality in this heat.

Not a great show, but fun looking back. Who would've thought Tom Hanks was a future Multi-Oscar winner from those performances?
Bonus: Who can tell me the Film Hanks and Scolari worked together later on?

Tom Hanks and future wife, Rita Wilson. And Donna Dixon (future Mrs. Aykroid). Yowsa.

The classy sexual heat of Annie Potts did not get nearly enough attention. Rowrrr.

Horrible, horrible grouping.
I almost brought myself to vote for Frasier but much like Cassell I just couldn't pull the trigger...

Rain Man

Wow. The Coz edged out Frasier for first place. That's a big upset in my book. However, this is only an elimination heat, so both advance, along with (heavy sigh) Diff'rent Strokes.

Poll over.

No, I love that movie. Great scene with Alex Rocco a.k.a. Moe Greene. "I got time for this?"

I didn't vote for any of these. Different Strokes was probably closest to getting my vote for the Gary Coleman character ("Whatchoo talkin' about, Willis!") and I know that Frazier and Cosby were both big hits, but none of them really did much for me.

Frasier was so Gay every episode I half expected Martin to hobble in and see Frasier ramming it into Niles mouth. Then id switch to Friends because id much rather half expect to see Monica rub oil on Rachels rack.
