“Big Bang Theory,” which I have seen and love, was the clear winner, while “Modern Family,” which I’ve never seen, came in a very close second. Responding readers said they loved these mostly because they are very funny.  

Others mentioned, in order of popularity, included: 

  • “New Girl” 
  • “Two Broke Girls” 
  • “Community” 
  • “Last Man Standing” 
  • “Parks and Recreation” 
  • “The Office”  
  • “NCIS” 
  • “Two and a Half Men” 
  • “The Middle” 
  • “How I Met Your Mother” 
  • “Happily Divorced” 
  • “Cougartown” 
  • “Happy Endings” 
  • “The Closer” 
  • “Suburbatory” 
  • “Bones” 
  • “The Finder” 
  • “Hot in Cleveland” 
  • “White Collar” 
  • “The Good Wife” 
  • “Family Guy” 
  • “Justified” 
  • “Whitney” 
  • “Raising Hope” 
  • “Desperate Housewives” 
  • “30 Rock” 
  • “Eureka” 


In the verbatim comments, many NewsDash readers expressed distaste with the newer sitcoms, and some miss the days of “M.A.S.H.” and “Cheers.” And in response to one commenter, my Nielson ratings won’t be affected, I was just wondering if I’m missing something.
