Where do I begin... The Cosby Show, Fresh Prince of Belair, Martin, Living Single, Girlfriends, Two and a Half Men (Charlie Sheen), Flintstones (although a sitcom, some parts of it was hilarious), while beyond my years, I did appreciate a good belly laugh from Sanford and Son; Redd Foxx had a way with words and last but certainly not least, The Three Stooges. Giggles, giggles...

Rowan and Martins Lagh-in has got to be one of my favorites because they are a bunch of comedy skits. Ruth Buzzi hitting people with her hand bag and I can't think of his name, but he keeps falling off his tricycle and there is many more. That show had me in stitches.

When I was a kid I was a huge Carol Burnett fan. I'd write her letters all the time and she (meaning her secretary) always answered them! I remember my mother having the biggest laugh of her life when Carol walked down that stairway in "Went With The Wind"; "I saw it in the window and I just couldn't resist!"

"Living Single", those ladies would have my side hurting from laughing sooo much. Overton Wakefied Jones and Kyle also added some spice to the show. I still watch when I have a chance to do so. LOL

M.A.S.H. was a little too sad for me, although it was a good show.

Wow, looking at all the other shows listed brings back good memories. I loved Laugh-in & Smothers Brothers (prob because they tended to be controversial). Also Mork & Mindy, Bosom Buddies, Barney Miller & WKRP.

Wow! My show was "Good Times". I still watch this show to this day. I loved everything about it and all the episodes. It was about real life struggles, which are still happening today. The show made you laugh and cry. It showed you know matter what their family situations were they always smiled or laughed in the end.
