    Super pumped they had Review in the top 50. One of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen. I think South Park should be higher, but whatever. This was a really good list.

    If they ended the show after Michael left and didn’t drag us through all of the horrible Jim and Pam storylines, sure.

    Also thought The Good Place should be higher but admittedly haven't watched a bunch of shows on this list and ranking something like this has so much subjectivity that it's hard to criticize. That show is great though. One of the best first watch experiences I've had with a sitcom

    Opened the list and saw schitt's creek made the cut. Unless there are only exactly 100 sitcoms in history, it's a deeply flawed list and has no credibility

  20. AD gets hurt by its later seasons or it would be an easy top 5

    5) Simpsons (Could argue the same as I did for AD but the body of work is so much larger)
    4) Parks
    3) Curb
    2) Bojack
    1) Larry Sanders Show

    Surprisingly good list, but Sepinwall is the man when it comes to TV so I shouldn't really be surprised.

    I know he never liked HBO's Bored to Death, but that should absolutely make the Top 100.

    Parks and Rec higher than the Office is just a bad opinion we’ve fleshed out 100+ times.

    They both had 2 bad seasons (first and last for P&R and last 2 for office). The office had more seasons and was significantly better during the good years, so it's the easy winner for me

    late AD is still really good, it's not remotely as much of a drop-off as The Simpsons (although The Simpsons had much further to fall)

    I would personally have King of the Hill in the top 25 but kudos to this list for not sticking them at the back, 41 is at least respectable for a show of that caliber.

    also, The Larry Sanders Show is at worst top 3. at worst.

    The only thing I know about Schitts Creek is some tiktok voiceover that is a stolen bit from Seinfeld.

    P&R >>>>> The Office and its not even close. People use The Office as a substitute for having a personality.

    M*A*S*H* is the GOAT.

    Pleasantly surprised to see Fawlty Towers make the list.

    Scrubs too low.
