Is Seinfeld the Greatest Sitcom of All Time?

Get More: Polls

Seinfeld_Cast_300Seinfeld has been voted the greatest sitcom of all time — not that there’s anything wrong with that. Or is there?

In a poll conducted by 60 Minutes in tandem with Vanity Fair, the show about nothing edged out the classic comedy The Honeymooners with 22 percent of the vote. (Ralph, Alice & Co. received 20 percent.)

Trailing the two shows were Friends (16 percent), Cheers (14 percent), Arrested Development (7 percent), Mary Tyler Moore (6 percent) and 30 Rock (5 percent).

    • my words exactly.. I Love Lucy was one of the best sitcoms EVER.. maybe Seinfeld is funny and sometimes controversial but they hadn’t unforgettable or caring moments like other sitcoms. Seinfeld was a unique show.

    • You read my mind! As much as I love Arrested Development, I Love Lucy is a classic. It was the first sitcom I loved watching every episode of (although the last season or two was a bit wonky).

      • I agree. I never really got the show… and I only really ever liked Elaine. My favorite sitcoms are Friends, Golden Girls, I Love Lucy, Cosby Show, Roseanne, Will & Grace and Parks & Rec. There are others that I like as well but I could list almost a hundred before I got to listing Seinfeld. It’s one of the most overrated shows in my opinion.

        Comment by Brendan – December 3, 2012 07:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • MASH would probably be my first choice, followed by Community. Probably some time would have to pass before we could have some support for Community. It messes with many of the accepted standards of a situation comedy. I personally love it, in the same way that I loved Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods. Not everyone likes their sacred cows tipped though, so I expect that I’m ahead of my time.

    • Where are you from John? Please educate us stupid Americans about how much smarter you are because you are from a different country. I’m sure your country has made WAY more classic television shows than the ones made by Americans since “Americans have no taste.” Since you claim we have no taste, please tell us what television show NOT made by Americans should have won this poll. By the way, I’m not a fan of Seinfeld either.

    • I’m British and I love Seinfeld, it’s simply one of the greatest shows of all time. It was original and there hadn’t been anything like it on tv before, a show about nothing that is both funny and entertaining, genius.

      Friends, on the other hand, is atrocious. It’s not funny, the characters are boring stereotypes who go out of their way to avoid being offensive or controversial. Seinfeld created one female character in Elain that had more about her than the three female Friends combined. If in doubt, watch the Seinfeld episode ‘The Contest’ and try and imagine Freinds tackling that subject.

      One criticism I have of Seinfeld is the last series was a bit weak, and it was never the same show after LD left.

      Comment by TM – December 4, 2012 04:44 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Right, any show that doesn’t tackle daring subjects and try to be offensive and/or controversial must by default be atrocious… (that’s called sarcasm by the way)
        And really, “boring stereotypes”? 90% of all humor and comedy is based around stereotypes, have you never seen a stand-up comedy show? Or some of the best British comedy ever, Fawlty Towers, Monty Python, Blackadder, COUPLING (which is basically a less PG version of Friends). Just cause something isn’t all deep and smart doesn’t mean it’s bad comedy you pretentious hipster twit.

      • 99.9% of your list are 3-camera comedies, commonly referred to as “sitcoms”. the other .01% (Modern Family, The Office, Community, Parks and Recreation, and Scrubs) are 1-camera comedies. They are not sitcoms in the traditional sense, and should NOT be categorized with the likes of Sports Night.

        • “Situation Comedy” is also an acceptable term to describe single-camera comedies, the definition is not exclusive to multi-camera.

    • I can agree with a good number of the shows on this list. “Community” and “Frasier” are a couple of my personal favorites.
      As for the poll above, out of that list I went with “Mary Tyler Moore” myself. I was kinda sad to see it so low in results. I have no problem with “Seinfeld” from the episodes I have seen, but it wouldn’t be among my personal picks for best sitcom ever.

      • I voted for Cheers too. Probably fallen out of the modern pop culture from lack of reruns, whereas Friends and Seinfeld are still in reruns as far as I know. I would totally watch it if they put the reruns back on, even if they shorten the theme song like they did for the reruns that were on while the show was still putting out new episodes.

  • The greatest American sitcom is “Married… with Children,” provided you ignore the last five seasons. But the first five years constituted the closest thing to True American Satire ever on TV.

    “Green Acres” and “Arrested Development” were a pretty close second. And if we allow for the inclusion of foreign shows, “Fawlty Towers” would also be up at the top.

I’ve seen a couple of episodes of Seinfeld that made me chuckle but I never (and still don’t) understand why people loved the show so much.

      M*A*S*H and All in the Family top the all time list with a plethora above the Vanity Fair poll.

  • All in the family, I love lucy, dick van dike show, MASH, cheers, friends, the office usa, and will and grace. In that order. Seriously, what poll asks for people to vote on the best sitcom ever and not include I love lucy is clearly too focused on recent comedies.

    Comment by Leonard – December 3, 2012 04:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I can see how Seinfeld was ground-breaking for its time as it was the first cynical sitcom in a world of family comedies. And I sometimes liked it when it was originally airing. Not all episodes, but sometimes I liked it. However, it is one of those shows I go back and watch and wonder what I ever saw in it. I don’t like it now. I find it too cynical and I want to smack all the characters. I would not have voted for it.
    .
    I would love to call Community the best sitcom of all time, but is that fair to do with only 3 seasons behind it? It seems like if you can keep up the quality over a lengthy period of time, that ought to count for lots of bonus points. Also, so much of this subjective, and single camera comedies don’t really belong in the same category as traditional multi-cam comedies, at least IMO.
    .
    If we’re talking traditional sitcoms who had longevity, then I would pick Frasier as my no. 1 pick. I could watch that show over and over again and still be amused. It had a Shakespearean structure in its writing and the cast had great chemistry. And I will confess I did like Friends a lot, even if the whole Rachel/Ross thing ruined the show for me. Now if we’re talking single-cam comedies, then I really want to pick Arrested Development. That show changed what was possible for sitcoms to do and paved the way for the success of other single-cam comedies. But since it was on such a short length of time, then I’m going to pick M*A*S*H* as the best comedy since they kept it good for so many years.

    Comment by Britta Unfiltered – December 3, 2012 04:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I would hold Community in regard higher than even Cheers, I’d think, but it kind of transcends the sitcom label for me with its innovative, often cinematic storytelling. And while I liked Frasier (and Seinfeld, more or less), Cheers is probably the most innovative and funny show of its time and showed us all how its done with very specific characterizations that are probably scientific in execution (it’s probably no coincidence that Lilith likes Cliff but not Carla).

      I’d like some more love for Wings, though, even if it was just Cheers in an island airport.

  • I’ve tried to like Sienfeld but I never found it funny and I can never understand why it ends up at the top of so many greased show polls. Then again, I also never liked The Honeymooners, the number two choice in this poll, either. For my money the best sitcoms are I Love Lucy, Cheers, and Friends with the latter coming out slightly above the other two for me, mostly because it’s the one I grew up with.

    • Funny, I can’t relate to Seinfeld at all, and I’m actually Jewish…

  • @Lynn: Yes, “It’s Your Move” was terrific.

  • Dharma and Greg! J/K ;) I voted for Arrested Development, but I’d like to add:
    - Parks and Rec
    - The Office – the first 5ish seasons
    - That 70s Show
    - The Cosby Show
    - My Name is Earl
    - 3rd Rock from the Sun
    That’s about all. I’m loving New Girl, but it’s too early.

  • I dont get why people think Jerry Seinfeld…Maybe it because he is the common man even though he is worth like 1 billion. I tried to watch Seinfeld while i was in highschool and never liked it tried to watch it now in my mid 20s and still dont get where it is so funny

  • Friends has always been funny and clever throughout all ten seasons! Seinfeld is funny as well but they didn’t get good til the sixth season.
