The 100 Best Sitcoms of All Time

Introduction

Television programming existed in various forms for more than a decade before the first situation comedies officially arrived in the late 1940s. Still, the sitcom quickly became one of the most popular and duplicated genres for the next 80-plus years. From stand-up comics to Hollywood icons, sitcoms are responsible for some of pop culture's biggest stars, from Jerry Seinfeld to Jennifer Aniston to Dick Van Dyke to Lucille Ball, and some of the most memorable catchphrases. Despite broadcast networks no longer championing sitcoms as much as in years past, with streaming services picking up the slack — Netflix is now more known for multi-camera sitcoms than any of the Big 4 — TV comedies will likely continue to keep audiences breathless with laughter for many more years to come.

As such, CinemaBlend's staff came together to celebrate and rank the 100 best sitcoms of all time, with the order stemming partially from our writers' sharing scores for more than 200 different series. Here are numbers 100 through 91.
