And the funniest sitcom of all time is…. (37 photos)


'Seinfeld' was named the funniest sitcom of all time by survey results from the New York Post. They beat the 1950s black-and-white classic 'The Honeymooners.' Close behind was Jackie Gleason’s “The Honeymooners,” with 20 percent, “Friends,” at 16 percent, and “Cheers,” at 14 percent. Thoughts?

    Completely agree!

    The hubs & I are constantly fighting about this; he claims it's Seinfeld, I say Friends. Either way, they're both funny. Friends is just funnier. ;)

      My gf and I are the exact same way…what we watch depends on whose apartment we are at.

      Seinfeld for SURE

  • socalmarti

    Where is the GIF of Elaine dancing?!

    • MontanaGirl76

      I agree! That's still one of the funniest moments from Seinfeld!

  • MontanaGirl76

    I say Friends. Seinfeld is funny but I am a Friends girl just as I'm always going to say ER was the best drama on tv.

    I'm totally a Friends girl. It's my #2 favorite show of all time, after Dexter :) But my boyfriend is a Seinfeld guy. Maybe it's a guy/girl thing?

      Hahaha. I forgot that saying "number two" with a pound sign brings up the picture with that number. Picture has nothing to do with my post!

    Well….Seinfeld is packed with one-liners, but Friends is more of a series with a storyline and funny situations
    Although the one-liners are strong in Friends too…

    Nope, it's gotta be Friends!

  • chivettebecky

    I absolutely agree! Seinfeld has been my favorite sitcom ever since I was a kid watching it…and not quite understanding the humor…with my parents! I appreciate it more than ever as an adult now.

  • Alice

    Totally agree, best tv show EVER!!!!

  • Marie

    How I met your mother!!

    • Sizzle

      Is a god-awful show! Just epically terrible. I don't understand how anyone watches it.

  • Claire

    Friends and Seinfeld= perfect encapsulation of my childhood tv watching

  • beb

    • Dani

      AGREED. Thought I was the only one! I don't find it funny at all.

  • BCbeaut

    I'm sorry ladies but Seinfeld is by far THEE best sitcom of all time. I've seen every episode and I still lol every time I watch it.

  • Kaydotteedot

    Friends is way funnier… :/

  • katastrophe89

    Honestly, I never really cared for Seinfeld.

  • jdd

    What about I love lucy?

  • knaimoli

    Where's George eating an onion because he thought it was an apple? Btw sorry girls, I have to agree that Seinfeld is way funnier; I can't stand Friends.

    This thread needs my favorite Elain gif. Hopefully this posts

    • Nic

      Oh jeez, spelled Elaine wrong… for shame

  • dollybakerton

    SEINFELD ALL THE WAY!! i could watch the same episodes over and over again and still laugh

  • eye.candy

    why people compare it to Friends anyway? it's a completely different type of humor – seinfeld is much more cynical, sophisticated and not as straight-forward as Friends is. I like friends as well, but seinfeld is pure genius…

  • Stephanie

    Definitely agree, Seinfeld is the best. I can’t stand Friends, I honestly don’t think it is that funny and the characters are annoying, whenever I try to watch it I cringe. To each his/her own I guess…
