    MASH
    The dialogue is just atrocious, nobody talks like this. So many douche-chill inducing lines toss around, lame unfunny jokes, and Alan Alda pretending to be Groucho half the time is fucking embarassing. The show fails at everything. For some reason my dad loved this show.

    FAMILY TIES
    I don't know if this was ever a sacred cow, I seem to remember it being very popular when I was a kid even though I never really watched it. If it was ever on, it was just background noise. I've caught a couple episodes on Antenna TV lately and wow, what a sadsack excuse for a sitcom. Wussy hippie shit. I'd like to see the dad get his ass kicked, if that happens in one of the episodes I might cut it some slack.

    Currently I'd have to say it's "Modern Family". The un-funniest, over-rated piece of crap on television these days.
    And that's saying a lot.


    ...also I ain't too fond of "Family Guy".

    I agree with the op's choices. But don't piss on the Family Ties dad. He was gangsta as fuck in Tremors.

    The first two seasons were terrific, but it went down hill quickly.

    The Big Bang Theory - a show that stupid people watch to convince themselves that they're smart. How this godawful show is a hit is one of the ponderous mysteries of the universe.
    The Cosby Show - Never funny nor fun. I was always more into "Sledge Hammer!" annd "The Charmings" over on ABC during this show's heyday.

    There's more but I'm pretty drunk at the moment. I'll post more as I think of them.

    I hate Mama's Family. And my most hated sitcom of all time is The Nanny. Maybe not sacred but successful shows that were dogshit.

    This. I've watched about 5 episodes of it and haven't laughed once. That's generally not a good sign.

    The Carol Burnett Show. Unfunny shtick performed by hacks who found themselves so fucking funny they just couldn't help cracking up during every one of their lame, stupid skits. Ponderous.

    The Office is a GREAT choice! Can't stand Steve Carell's labored attempts at ad-libbing. He's just awful.

    Each of those series was on the air for SIX seasons! Mind-boggling.

    Drescher is hot, but Nanny is otherwise pretty damn unwatchable.

    Rosanne - Never watched more than 2 seconds. That fat pig and her trailer trash family made me ill. My mom and sister would watch that shit, made me want to punch myself
    Friends - First couple of years were OK, after that, pure shit.
    ER - Giant pile of shit
    Allie McBeil - Even bigger pile of shit.
    Basically anything on network TV is garbage.
