another nice poll...and without a doubt...the seventies were the most important decade for sitcoms...and they were the best...

with breakthrough shows like all in the family...maude...mash...and classics like the bob newhart show...the mary tyler moore show...sanford and son...quincy...columbo...wkrp in cincinnati...ellery queen...the jeffersons... the odd couple...good times...lou grant...the flip wilson show...the rockford files...saturday night live...and many others i haven't even mentioned...

'nuff said...

"Columbo" isn't exactly a comedy. I was surprised that you mentioned SNL but the description says "TV comedies" while the title has "sitcoms", the two are different. I would love to see this poll for sitcoms and nominate the 80s with the TV series that revolutionized the genre: "The Cosby Show".

Did you mean "not" instead of "now" here?

I suggest adding Frasier and maybe even Coach to the 90's option.
