Did anyone watch Sports Night for the two seasons it was on? I really liked that show, but poor ratings and the writer moving on to the West Wing killed it off pretty quick. I good combo of Drama and Comedy, along with Sports.

i just saw "The Maid" or whatever episode it's called the other day...that may be the best Seinfeld episode ever...a lot of times certain plot points from the shows run through my head, but i always forget that one has so many good ones

Jerry paying his maid for sex

Elaine losing here number, getting a new area code and then getting an old area code number back from a dead lady who's grandson keeps calling "Do you hate me because of my lazy eye"

George fighting for the T-bone nick-name and ending up with Koko

Kramer doing whatever the hell he does in that episode...

the sitting at the counter instead of the table "telephone" gag is great as well "Newman died?"

I love Seinfeld (personal favorite is Kenny Rogers chicken), but I was thinking the other day that it already felt dated. I was in the sweet spot of the curve since it hit is prime when I was in high school and college) but man, its distracting to see the jeans w/white sneakers, the terrible cordless phones, etc. It's top five, but I personally prefer the simpsons. I think south Park is a sleeper, but its too bad because many people just think its all poop jokes, and don't know that it is very satirical.

The thing with Friends is, it could have been awesome. The first season or so was funny, and the Chandler/Joey stuff was usually pretty good. But it devolved into more of a soap opera. If it would have been able to straddle the line, it would have been perfect since both sexes would have loved it. But it became too girlie.

P.S. I find it interesting you're a Cubs - Yankees fan. I'm a Red Sox - Cardinals fan myself. :*)

So who did you root for in 2004? :-?

I'd have to say the Simpsons is definitely up there as one of the greatest TV shows.

Of the more recent shows, I am a big Scrubs fan. I hear this could be the last season, though. They've had a nice run.
