I went with only two shows again.

#1 - Married with Children. My wife rolls her eyes when she sees me watching this show, but gosh darn it, it's dang funny. Al cracks me up.

#2 - Sanford and Son. I pondered not voting for it, but threw it a bone. It had a little too much of that "setup line/punch line" writing, but nonetheless I remember it as being somewhat entertaining. Plus, I liked the junkyard setting.

Didn't make the cut.

#3 Petticoat Junction. Pretty girls that you'd like to live next door to, but it was one too many hillbilly shows competing against gems like The Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres.

#4 It's Gary Shandling's Show. I think it was on cable, and I wasn't made out of money. Never saw it.

#5 Perfect Strangers. Bronson Pinchot kind of bugged me, and his name was too close to that Pinochet guy who killed everyone in Chile. Never saw it, never wanted to see it.

Could only vote for Sanford and Married....the rest are average at best.

Oh. Typo in the poll. There was only one son for Sanford, unless maybe his oldest son Chuck got pinned under an old car out in the junkyard.

Sanford and Son and Married with Children were both pretty funny.

I didn't get to see Gary Shandling's Show very many times, but I remember finding it to be pretty hilarious so it gets my third vote.

It did have a catchy tune and some cute girls.

Larry Sanders Show on HBO was a better Shandling show.

Married with Children is a classic and really changed TV's boundaries.

Married with Children and Gary Shandling.

I liked the weird dry humor on Gary Shandling.

Married with Children was great, Sanford and Sons was good too. Sympathy vote to Perfect Strangers, it was funny at times.

Gary Shan show was on showtime. It made me laugh. It was also paired up with. terrible comedy starring Bill Mahler.

Married with Children was just awful. It's the show that people over 70 think The Simpsons is.

Okay, we have two pretty clear winners in this heat and a third that limped in. Married With Children, Sanford & Son, and Perfect Strangers move on.
