    Howard recently reaffirmed that he doesn't like/watch sitcoms. I assume he likes stand-up comedy so why doesn't he like sitcoms?

    Does he not like watching other family dynamics? Does it remind him of something bad in his youth?

    If Ralph liked a sitcom, chances are Stern would give it a chance, and end up liking it.

    He's a jealous, soul-less, passion-less, money grubbing fuck. He also loves not to know...

    There are a lot of people who don't like or watch sitcoms --pretty much most of my family

    Howard could never get a sitcom deal for himself as the star, ergo he hates them.

    It's that simple.

    Howard likes shows like Buffy the vampire slayer. And the bachelor. He is a man's man!

    Howard would rather die than watch a single episode of "Seinfeld" or "Curb Your Enthusiasm" because he sees Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David as contemporaries of his who made more money and achieved greater critical and mainstream success than he ever will. It's blatantly obvious that he's extremely jealous of heavy hitters like those guys. I mean, they were winning Emmy's while Howard was playing "It's Just Wrong".

    Howard said he loved the "Munsters" as a kid.
    I believe that was a sitcom.

    The wig watches what a 12 year old girl would watch. I would bet that he's got a Justin Beiber poster on the back of his bathroom door.

    Howard hates that his dad loved Seinfeld so much. He wished he could be Seinfeld so his dad would think he is great instead of Jerry. So Howard's reaction is to dismiss sitcoms. That's how Howard's dislikes of most things form. From some type of deep rooted feelings having to do with himself and his parents. He also is boring and doesn't know fun or funny.

    His dim bulb bimbo wife probably got confused by an episode of "Family Matters" and announced to her cats "I hate shows like this! They're so dumb!"

    Howard overheard it and brought new content to the show.
