You made it! Congrats, great list! Thank you for it.

Sean Dougherty

Congratulations - it was a great list. How about the Top 100 Radio Sitcoms next?

Robert David Sullivan

I'll think about it, but I'm not sure I want to spend 2013 listening to Fibber McGee and Molly.

To each his own. This isn't even on my Top Ten DICK VAN DYKE SHOW episodes list.


Really fun list. As someone not alive for the airings of most of these episodes it was a good chronicle of sitcom history. I now request a list of your favorite all time sitcom series.

Robert David Sullivan

Perhaps, Panopticon! It's tough to keep up with all the new stuff, though.

Thanks muchly for the shout-out, RDS! As I have stated so many times at my 'umble little scrap of the blogosphere, The Dick Van Dyke Show is the greatest sitcom of all time. (I wouldn't mind spending 2013 listening to Fibber McGee & Molly, btw.)

I enjoyed reading through your list. This really must have been a lot of work.

I would say that you're missing (what I think of as) the TAB episode of The Sarah Silverman Show, and "Holy Sheep" from Andy Richter Controls the Universe. I probably would have chosen Bill's Funeral as one of the NewsRadio episodes, because it's not only hilarious and well rounded, it's far and away the best job anyone in television has ever done of dealing with a cast member's death. Your one truly glaring omission is the fact that Vicky Pile's The Green Wing is not represented at all. Still, as much as there is to see out there, with only 24 hours in each day, I certainly couldn't compile a list any more complete than this one.

Kudos to you! And kudos again!


Great blog, thanks for your time on this! Just flicked through a few.
