    It's a topic that's been hotly debated since the inception of the board. Which show is the best comedy of the last 20 years.

    Now, let's find out once and for all.

    1, Seinfeld
    1, Simpsons
    1, Curb Your Enthusiasm

    The others are playing for the consolation championship.

    Gotta go with the Simpsons. I've never seen "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Is it good enough to be mentioned with shows like "Seinfeld"?

    Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm are not funny. Or at least this Jewish New Jersey-ite doesn't appreciate the humor in them.

    Last 20 years
    - Since Cheers had its final five seasons during that time it deserves to be a nominee.
    - Californication on Showtime definitely deserves to be among the nominees
    - I'm sure there are a few other sitcoms from the late 80s through the present I'm forgetting about.

    If I was to vote only based on the current nominees, I'd have to vote for The Simpsons.

    No, it's not. It is a good show, but should not be in the running.

    Not to nitpick on the nominees, but the exclusion of "Frasier" is almost a crime.

    I enjoyed Seinfeld, but its best was never as good as the best of the Simpsons and the Simpsons have been better for longer.

    I like Californication, but no way does it make a list like this for just two seasons on cable.

    And Frasier sucked. Bad.

    When did Cosby complete it's run, IIRC it was 1992.

    Haven't we done this poll two or 12 times before?

    Californication isn't so much a comedy as it is television gold for a thousand reasons.

    There should be a none of the above option, and yes we have spnited.

    Totally agree.

    Would Sports Night be considered a comedy, too?
