1. Friends
2. Two And A Half Men (Charlie Sheen days)
3. South Park
4. Family Guy
5. Big Bang Theory
We really wouldn't get on together!

2 & 4 have never appealed enough for me to watch but the other three would probably be my 3 most detested and least funny programmes I've ever seen.

Still, each to their own and all that.

My forgotten or under represented five:

1 Colin's Sandwich
2 Clarence
3 Police Squad
4 Diff'rent Strokes
5 Sorry

Phoenix Nights and Drop The Dead Donkey far less obscure but still underrated.

I can't make a list less than six, sorry. However there are only two shows that are my favourite throughout their run.

They are (alphabetically):

Friends (all 10 seasons)
Golden Girls (all 7 seasons)

The others are (alphabetically):

The Big Bang Theory seasons 1-4 (Penny sleeps with Raj)
Cheers seasons 1-5 (Diane leaves the show)
Curb Your Enthusiasm seasons 1-6 (Larry and Cheryl split)
Frasier seasons 1-9 (Daphne gets with Niles)
