Maybe Roseanne was more like Patrick Ewing. The show was larger than life, but ultimately started to go places towards the end that just made it an embarrassment.

Arrested Development is Grant Hill. Great from the beginning, but cut short, ultimately to have a small comeback after a few years.

Seinfeld is the GOAT though. And it all accumulated at about the same time as Jordan ended his Bulls career. Their cameo on Curb Your Enthusiasm was MJ on the Wizards. Was very entertaining and reminded us of what once was, but still not quite the same.

Seinfeld changed what a sitcom could be. There was nothing like Seinfeld before it.

There still is nothing like Seinfeld. I feel like the closest is It's Always Sunny. Not necessarily in quality, but somewhat in style. It is a mix of guys (and 1 girl) without any real storyline (shows about nothing) and they are all essentially selfish, shallow jerks. Always Sunny just makes them bigger, more obvious jerks.

I feel like it was more similar to Seinfeld in the first few seasons. As Sunny got more ridiculous it strayed a bit from the Seinfeld idea.

The Chinese Restaurant episode of Seinfeld is utter genius and it takes place in the same room for the entire episode.

Arrested Development = Deadwood

Two brilliant series which never got to see their full potential, AD a comedy, Deadwood a drama.

Roseanne, seriously? I watched it, but give me Married With Children over it any day.

Just from it's era, it's possibly top ten, but not the best. I'd take Cheers over Roseanne too.

No, John Goodman alone trumps Married with Children, which was a good show, at least in the beginning, and then turned into shit.
