There’s something so magical about great sitcoms on television. The good ones can have incredibly lengthy runs on the air, and the best can have even longer runs through syndication. If you watch television regularly, sitcoms are probably a huge part of your viewing pleasure.
The fact is most everybody loves a good sitcom. Here is my Top 5 of the past twenty years.
5. The Office (US) (2005-2013)
NBC’s The Office will be coming to an end following the upcoming season and, frankly, that’s long overdue. The show hasn’t been great ever since Michael Scott departed and I said from the beginning that I thought the show should have ended the second he stepped on that plane. Why? Because during its heyday with Steve Carell in the role of Scott, The Office was arguably the best show on television. A great cast of lovable (and sometimes hate-able) characters anchored by Carell made The Office hilarious, must-see TV. Unfortunately, Steve was so great that no one could ever replace him.
