Er, I don't know about any others... My other fave tv shows go over the usual sitcom time limit.

Cheers was good in the day.

All In The Family is a classic.
The first few seasons of The Cosby Show were hilarious.
Everybody Loves Raymond.

But the ugly sweaters and the fact that it jumped the shark about 5 times in later seasons would have to take it out of all time top 3 contention. If it had ended when Denise left for college (And they focused "A Different World" on the exploits of a young Marisa Tomei rather than Kadeem Hardison), the show could stand up as an all time great.

Anyway, narrowing to 3 is difficult, but I guess I'd have to go with:

All in the Family (remember watching with my parents when I was a kid and not enjoying it so much, but when I got older an watched I realized how friggin' hilarious it is. "Patty", "No, link" "Patty")

Honorable mentions to:
The Simpsons
South Park
Family Guy
The Bob Newhart Show
M*A*S*H (specifically the Trapper John/Henry Blake years)
Happy Days (Pre shark of course)

Flowery Twats

MRS RICHARDS: And another thing I asked for a room with a view
BASIL: Deaf, mad and blind. This is the view as far as I can remember, madam. Yes, this is it.
MRS RICHARDS:When I pay for a room I expect somthing more interesting than that.
BASIL: That is Torquay, Madam.
MRS RICHARDS: Well, it not good enough.
BASIL: Well...may I ask what you were hoping to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeests sweeping majestically....
MRS RICHARDS: Don't be silly. I expect to see the sea.
BASIL: You can see the sea. It's over there between the land and the sky.
MRS RICHARDS: I'd need a telescope to see that.
BASIL: Well, may I suggest you consider moving to a hotel closer to the sea. Or preferably in it.
