Podcast #47 – The Top 10 Sitcoms of All Time

by Howie Decker @HowardTheDeck

We’re back!


After our last episode (which was argubly our weirdest topic – giants thrashing parked airplanes?), we took a 3 week hiatus to re-examine this whole podcast thing.

I’m kidding – we’ll surely have MUCH odder episodes than that! Our producer took the family to Disney for some much needed rest & relaxation, and came back amped up to bring you some new weekly podcasts!

To get back into the swing of things, we decided to revisit a tried and true UnderScoopFormula – the Top 50 list! Once a month, we publish a list of the Top 50 somethings, and discuss the Top 10 of said somethings on a podcast episode.

Check out our podcast discussion of the 10 Funniest Movies of All Time (as part of our 50 Greatest Comedies of All Time list).

This month we tackle the greatest sitcoms of all time, and we field quite the team of tacklers!

In addition to the UnderScoopFire Roundtable Voltron, we welcome:

eclectik  – host of the eclectik discussion Podcast, honorary 6th Voltron lion.

Fogs – co-host of The (title pending) Movie Podcast, curator of Fogs Movie Reviews.

Hail Mary – UnderScoopFire’s own Brian Morin.


In all, 8 individuals ranked their favorite 50 sitcoms, submitted them to Tank, and he tabulated the results.

In this episode:

  • Heated debates about Scrubs, Friends, Seinfeld & more
  • We reveal the Top 10, and examine how we got there
  • Why some beloved shows didn’t make the list
  • An ice-cream based BJOTW
  • Becker is “fuckin’ baller”
