This is why I only watch Nick at Nite, Cartoon Network (Adult Swim ) and music channels. Most new sitcoms aren't any good, and I absolutely hate reality shows.

I think they're waning, though.. they've been popular since.. 2000, right? Unless they come up with some brilliant new take on it, I think they're on the way out.

they're not waning. Do you see the amount of reality shows on nowadays?

It's disgusting. I'll admit I watched The Batchelor and The Batchelorette and American Idol, but that's where it stops.

this Married show and Im a Celebrity get me out of here, is just plain insulting to the intelligence of Americans.

I can see both sides however. The actors wanting these huge salaries are ridiculous.
But, I have two friends who are SAG members and they boycott all reality series because they say it is taking away from job opportunities for them.

I think sitcoms are lame. Sorry. There are very few good creative ones. I think you don't see them as much anymore, because the times have changed.
Have you watched an episode of Cheers, or Growing Pains or any of the like recently? They are not funny anymore. My friends and I came to this conclusion the other week. Sit through an episode of Who's the Boss. I can't believe we used to laugh at that stuff.
The only sitcoms I watch are Friends, Will & Grace and recently 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter.

I like reality televison, but I agree too, that it is getting out of control. I stick to originals like Survivor, Amazing Race, and well... I admit I love American Idol, but that's it.
I got sucked into Joe Millionaire and the Bacherolette, but I am done.

I can't think of a single sitcom on TV right now that's worth watching.

Nope, you're not the only one.

I want sitcoms back, too.

I am sick to death of reality television! Enough of it already! Please!

Honestly, how many more versions of "Survivor" or "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette" or whatever else can we have or do we need? Sheesh.

I hate TV and honestly the only actual show I watch is ER and I'm bored with it but I've watched it since the first show so I can't stop now. If I don't have anything to do, which is rare, I will watch a Law and Order, I think there are 3 different versions out now. I like it cause you don't get involved with the regular characters "lives" you just watch them solve the mystery at hand then the show is over. I haven't been able to find a single sitcom in years that is actually worth remembering to take time out to watch.

I will say that I do watch the "reality" shows because I think they are more interesting then most of the sitcoms. I only watch a select few and sometimes I get bored those as well. My computer in general is way more intersting then anything on TV.

I just don't think the sitcoms these days are all the exciting. Fraiser and Will and Grace are ok and again, if I'm bored, I will watch them.

I would watch a rerun of a late 70's early 80's classic over any sitcom that is out today.

I know what you mean Daisy! I don't really have time to watch TV. But all these new sitcoms are just lame and ugh. So yeah, I watch Nick at Nite when I'm up late doing home work! Family Ties, Three's Company, All in the Family.... I those TV sitcoms!

TV does suck......with the exception of C.S.I. and Clone High. I'm just getting into that show.....funny stuff. I think cartoons gearded toward adults and college kids are going to save tv.

I mostly watch BBC America nowadays. Oh and TLC with "Trading Spaces."

I still watch NBC on Thursdays.

I love "Frasier", but it was at its best before they got Daphne and Niles together.

My parents always hate it when a sitcom brings two people together who've liked each other (or in the cases where just one person has a crush on someone who doesn't notice them in that way) for most of the show-they say it ruins it. And I have to agree. The sexual tension is what made the episodes funny...once they're together it just drains it of some of the comedy.

Yeah, my parents watch a lot of Nick at Nite and TV Land shows...there's some good shows on those channels.

Books. Remember them? TV has gotten so bad, I've been forced(happily) to return to them. No commercials.

I miss "Seinfeld"...Dad and I watch the reruns everynight though (except for Sunday because none are shown on Sundays).

I "My Wife and Kids" though...there have been a couple things on it that irked me, but overall, it's pretty damn hilarious.

Junior......what a dolt...
