This can also include those which started in the 80s and ended in the 90s.

I like Family Ties because I've always been a fan of Michael J. Fox aka Alex P. Keaton aka Marty Mcfly

Married with Children.


Nobody else but Fox dared air this show. A true classic that wouldn't last today because somebody out there would be offended.

Family Ties.

The only other one that comes to mind is Silver Spoons, and I didn't even watch it that much.

Cheers. Why?

Cheers is still the only 80s sitcom that reamains funny. NTM , Cheers isn't dated like most other 80s shows.

My favorite was Newhart. I just loved Larry, his brother Daryl and his other brother Daryl, and their "anything for $50" business. I also liked George Utley, my son, about 6 at the time went out one Halloween as him.


Second was Nightcourt. I had a high school summer art class with Markey Post, so watched anything she was in (Fall Guy) but Harry Anderson really made that show.

Yes. Nightcourt is definitely another classic that came to mind. I was too young to fully appreciate it but I would love to see some of the episodes today.

IMO, the quality of Family Ties and Night Court - both of which started out great - declined after a few years. Cheers, however, stayed strong the entire 11 years it ran.

Who's the Boss? It was a very good, and funny show with nice family situations. The romantic tension between the live-in housekeeper, Tony Micelli, and his boss, Angela Bower gave the show a nice flavor.

Not sure if this fits but the greatest 80s show is The Wonder Years.

Best by far - Police Squad.

Cheers was great at first, but rapidly declined during the last 4-5 seasons.

The Wonder Years was a great show.

Night Court was consistantly good.

I think Married With Children is a 90s sitcom? There was a time when I liked it, but that didn't last. It's on reruns often so so apparently not too many are offended these days.

I didn't like all the others mentioned, tho I watched many of them. I liked more sitcoms in the 70s, 90s and this century than the 80s.
