@lan_fan: the last season ruined the all series for me. So I will have to disagree...

@bullpr: That, Malcolm in the Middle, and Fresh Prince of Bel Air are the only sitcoms that I genuinely find funny.

Friends is definitely better than TBBT

The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966) followed by the original Bob Newhart Show (1972-1978). I've seen every episode of Friends at least twice, and at this point, I have no desire to ever see it again. I have never seen a complete episode of the Big Bang Theory nor How I Met Your Mother. For the most part, I have lost interest in the sitcom formula. I have tried occasionally to pick up the genre again, though. I enjoyed The Good Place, Superstore and Community but fell off all of those mid-season two. I also liked the first season of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but never started season two and I didn't even make it through season one of The New Girl. I've seen a handful of scattered episodes of Parks and Recreation and the first two episodes of Brooklyn Nine Nine. I think that's everything since the early 2000's.

I see your point.

But I am very biased for the two series in the OP:

-When Friends was airing I had the good age to see part of myself in each one of the (male) characters

-When The Big Bang Theory started, I didn't really care about it until one of my friends told me to watch it as it was "us, 10 years ago, without the girls"

Friends wins by default because it's going against TBBT.

@lan_fan: In the end Superman and Goku became good friends again :) . But i guess Goku has always shown that kind of impression towards others .

Seinfeld? The Office (Seasons 1-7)? That 70s Show (Seasons 1-7)? Frasier? Scrubs? I'm watching 30 Rock right now, pretty good so far. How about that?

The Office - Was ok, nothing to write home about, only saw about 15 eps though.

That 70's show - Never really watched it so can't comment, the lil I saw didn't pike my interest that much.

Frasier - Really good, more subtle and refined than most other sitcoms.

Scrubs - Awesome

30 Rock - Never seen it

Others to take into account:

Arrested Development - Among the all time greatest

Grounded for life - Hilarious

Brooklyn 99 - Takes little time to grow on you, slightly less hilarious with each passing season sadly

@rukelnikovftw: @faradaysloth: I watched these kind of sitcoms when I was a kid, and my only source is TV, so nearly all of the things you mentioned weren't available for me.

Between these two I would have to say Big Bang Theory. There was nothing special about Friends. It was a the white Living Single except not funny.

Rao! Friends is so overrated. But then again, TBBT isn't that good either.

But you mentioned Malcolm (it was good with sprinkles of hilarious) and Fresh Prince (never really watched it). Many of the ones I mentioned are contemporary with those two :S
