I sort of wish they had ended the show with the poignant and bittersweet two-parter "You're Getting Old" and "Assburgers"... which felt so much like an ending that many fans after watching it thought that the show was over and Matt & Trey had decided to pull the plug without warning us. They could have gone out while they were still near the top of their game back then. In the five years since they've only made 6 or 7 brilliant episodes and it often feels like they're just phoning it in.
Bob's Burgers now makes the list with 190 episodes
Also some programmes on here that are as funny as a root canal, but I guess comedy is like beauty.
Agreed that many of these shows are terrible. American network TV sitcoms usually are. Americans produce more quality TV than anyone, and on the networks some good stuff occasionally slips through, but most of it is aired different places.
or was the only time you turned on the television in the past 20 years a day when they had scheduled a Jersey Shore marathon?
Even if you're only just talking about sitcoms in the past 20 years you've got The Simpsons (didn't premiere, but still going), Arrested Development, The Office (both versions, take your pick), etc on the networks, and quirkier stuff other places like Jean Claude van Johnson, Living With Yourself, and the Santa Clarita Diet... I do lament the extreme proliferation of extremely bad "reality" television the past couple of decades, but, just flat out saying everything since 2000 is bad makes you sound like Mickey Rooney.
