For me, the list goes like this:


#1. Three words, eight or nine syllables. Reverend Jim Ignatowski. You could put him on The Evening News with Brian Williams and it would be one of the funniest comedies ever. Taxi in the top slot.

#2. The Dick Van Dyke Show. I haven't seen a whole lot of these, but I recall it being well written and funny, and how can you not like Rob and his hot, cute wife Laura?

#3. Everybody Hates Chris. The title would indicate that it's incredibly lame and unimaginative, but it's actually a pretty entertaining show. Try it, you'll probably like it.

Didn't make the cut.

I Love Lucy. For its time, it was probably pretty cutting edge, but it never really spoke to me. The scenarios were a little unbelievable at times, and it centered too much on Lucy and not enough on the other characters. I prefer ensembles. But I recognize that it was great in its day.

Coach. I suspect that I might like this show, but I think I only saw one episode. For some reason I was never home and unoccupied when it was on. It's an unknown quantity.

One thing about the older shows like Lucy and DVD. Their writing had to be funny without todays loosened censorship rules. I can't imagine a young Mary Tyler Moore using Two and a Half Men type scripts.

Taxi has some of the most memorable sitcom scenes such as Jim taking the driver's ed test.

I can't believe I Love Lucy isn't getting much love.

That's a really good point. I think about a show like The Office, which I love, and a lot of its humor comes from awkward or uncomfortable statements that wouldn't have flown back then. DVD and Lucy had less fertile ground to plow.

Best Taxi scene ever was when Jim watched Louies apartment and scene switches to Louie walking in and the place is totally gutted by fire.
