Post Sitcoms that you miss
What sitcoms do you all miss the most? For me, it's George Lopez and War At Home, they were both cancellled for highly inferior shows and they were rare sitcoms that were both realistic and funny.

Well there is an Arrested Development movie planned currently, not sure if it'll get made or not though, as for AD I never got what the big deal about it was.

Arrested Development, definitely. Sitcoms are kind of hit and miss for me. The best ones wouldn't make sense to do now. I liked The Cosby show, but it's not like it could ever be done now. I miss it, nonetheless.

Arrested Development, Sports Night, Newsradio, Seinfeld...althought I think that of those 4, Arrested Development I would want to see start up production again.

Sports Night was very good, but sort of started suffering a Moonlighting effect...the scripts were so good early on that they seemed to start to run out of steam towards the end and started losing the magic. Seinfeld was strong for many seasons, but those seasons were not consecutive. They'd go from great to good, to mediocre, back to good...etc. I thought it ended on a whimper. Fortunately they are in perpetual reruns on 12 differrent stations.

Newsradio I miss the Phil Hartman era; not so much the Jon Lovitz shows...though they were still pretty funny.

I think Seinfeld definitely captured the 90's as well as any sitcom out there. You could maybe say Friends or Home Improvement, but when I think TV in the 90's, I think Seinfeld.

Thing about Arrested Development is that even if it wasn't cancelled it wouldn't have lasted that much longer, as the show's creators said that by season 3, they'd pretty much taken the show's premise as far as they could, and the cast was also ready to move on from the series by season 3.

The only reason that is true is that they knew since the 2nd season (maybe the 1st) that they were on the edge of cancellation. Thus, the writers felt little need to extend things really far into the future, and made the show more and more self-referential and over-the-top.

I believe if the ratings were strong all along, they could have gone on for several more seasons.

Committed. It aired a few years ago on NBC, a very short run, but I really enjoyed it...

War at Home was pretty funny, surprisingly.
Kitchen Confidential with Bradley Cooper. I LOVED that one.
The Loop
Titus


I'm not gonna list shows like Third Rock From the Sun or Friends or Seinfeld or Home Improvement or Frasier, ect. since they all had good runs and ran for a long time.
