Okay, it comes down to this.

We have ten shows, which will be presented in two heats.

In each heat, select your top THREE shows. There will be no mercy thread, and the top three vote-getters of each heat will move on to the next round.

So vote for THREE, as in three-toed sloth.

My thoughts:

#1 - Seinfeld. Kramer makes the difference.

#2 - Frasier. Niles makes the difference.

#3 - WKRP. Loni Anderson makes the difference.

Didn't make the cut.

#4 - Friends. Close, but no cigar. Sorry, Chandler.

#5 - MASH. Great show, but not the level of yuks that the other shows have.

MASH and WKRP are easy.....Threw my other vote to Frasier to try to kill Friends.

1. M*A*S*H is one of the tv series I would be sure to take with me if I were ever stranded on a desert island. - voted

2. I liked Frasier but it wouldn't even begin to sniff my personal top 10. - voted

3. Seinfeld had it's moments but mostly meh. Certainly not enough to vote for

4. I have vague memories of WKRP in Cincinnati from Nick at Night but never got into it.

5. Wifey is a huge fan of Friends and I have even sat on the couch at The Perk but I never watched it.

M*A*S*H and WKRP are definites, Friends is a piece of shit, it's really tough to pick between Seinfeld and Frasier.

Gotta go Frasier, because it has fewer annoying characters.

Seinfeld and MASH were the easy votes. I could've voted for any of the rest, but went with Frasier by a nose.

But honestly, I really liked all of these shows.

Seinfeld and easy #1, may win it all but will have to go against Cheers. MASH and Frasier get the nod, hard not to vote for WKRP. friends can die in a flaming aids tree.

Seinfeld- still my pick to win it all, although it will have to battle Cheers eventually.
Frasier- Great show. My dad owns the entire series.
And Friends just to be a dick.


Bunch of ancient shows in this heat. No fresh blood whatsoever. You guys need to stop living in the past. It's ok to let current shows into your heart.

You weren't around to appreciate the really good shows.

I chose Frasier, WKRP, and MASH. I just never really got into Seinfeld (outside of the Soup Nazi and Elaine's dance and diaphragm-worthy episodes). Thinking about it though, I probably should have chosen Friends over Frasier.

I think it's the competition that's the problem. Back in say 80s, every show was a sitcom. A lot to choose from.

Take shows now a days. Seems like 20% of them are sitcoms. The rest is reality television. Just not as large as a sample size IMO.

It sure does, i mean, i used to hardly ever miss an episode of Married with Children... but to use a timeworn phrase that still fits here... it is what it is.

To see it & other shows, especially cartoons that are even more mindless, beat true classics is disappointing.

I just realized that there's been a huge oversight in this contest. We forgot the Martin Mull/Fred Willard comedy classic Fernwood Tonight/America 2-Night. I recommend either restarting the process or giving this show a bye into the final round.

I'm familiar with all these shows. Frasier and WKRP are the class of this round and none of the rest come close. The first three seasons of MASH are at their level, but the remainder of the show drags it down overall.

I'll never understand the endless fucking love for Swinefeld. Of course, I don't understand the love for pro wrestling or soccer, either. :shake:

Seattle pricks, maybe, but not New York pricks. None of those here.

I also can't name a "down" season of Frasier. It changed and morphed, and got different writers, but it always stayed at a consistent high level of wit and humor. Maybe the tenth season, but the eleventh and final immediately following was fantastic.
