What will American Idol be like without Simon Cowell? I personally don't care. The show has run its course for me.
Speaking of my viewing interests -- Sunday begins a new "24"!
Well, let's just stay on the TV theme for today. Beverly and I have been watching the old "Cosby Show" when we are home for lunch. That show is really good. Cosby is a genius. Clean and funny. Too few shows seem to understand that combination.
So it got me to thinking: What, in your opinion, are the best sitcoms in history? Mine will probably differ from yours, because I go back to earlier days. Here's mine:
1. Andy Griffith Show (black and white with Barney. After that, it falls out of my top 20)
3. Home Improvement
4. Everybody Loves Raymond
5. Leave It To Beaver
6. I Love Lucy
7. The Bob Newhart Show
9. All in the Family
10. Sanford and Son
I would probably change some of these if I thought about it longer. And I admit that I don't watch hardly any sitcoms any more. I've seen only a couple of episodes of Seinfeld (ranked #1 all time by many critics), and never seen Friends or The Simpsons. My list is largely based on if I see one of these shows is on in reruns, will I watch it.
