This must be a young crowd...

The best in my memory were

1) "Occasional Wife" (high ratings but NBC could only afford to renew it or "I Dream of Jeannie"

2) "Bridget Loves Bernie" - canceled because of its controversy

3) "Mister Sterling" - Great show but NBC gave up on it too quickly

4) "Starman" - I liked it; what can I say?

Agree 100% with the top 2, which were great shows that both should have had long runs. No one mentioned if this is only for sitcoms or all shows but just sitcoms:

Occasional Wife
Bridget Loves Bernie
Love on a Rooftop
He and She
Good Morning World
Gidget

And yes, most of the people here are children or just barely out of childhood.

6) Firefly - saw pilot, didn't like it
5) Undeclared - watched them all, okay, but not great
4) Life As We Know It - saw pilot, thought it was vulgar and offensive
3) Birds Of Prey - never watched, no interest
2) My So Called Life - saw pilot, lead character was an annoying twit
1) Freaks and Geeks - great show, belongs on this list

It was okay but I would rather have been a teen in the 50s. The best thing about the 70s IMO was that it was the greatest decade for sports. You had all of these leagues popping up all over the place - WFL, WHA, ABA, WTT, NLL, IVA, NASL. It was a great decade for sports, really great.
