Brace yourselves...

"She's the Sherriff!" ARRRGH!!!!

I usually think the critics are too harsh with Suzanne Somers, but she should have been bludgeoned with Thigh Master for this pile of caca.

Viva Valdez, it came out around 76 or 77 and it wasn't funny but my cousin cracked up over it. Another was The San Pedro Beach Bums it didn't make it either.

I liked Angie, but they ruined it when she got married. Flo wasn't funny, they should have given her a different situation and a better supporting cast.

I remember,YEARS ago, there was an unsold pilot on CBS one night (and if you saw it, it was pretty obvious why it was unsold!) about this divorced couple, and the husband moved into an apartment, then found that his ex-wife had the apartment next to him.

I just remember, it aired on New Years eve at something like 10:30 or 11, obviousley to get the lowest audience possible. God, that thing was HORRIBLE!!!!
I don't know any details about it, and I don't care to know!!!

I agree with you. Unfortunately, a by-product of any show becoming successful is that it inspires a legion of imitators. The other networks see that there's a popular new show that's invigorating ratings and want to capitalize on that.

It happens at least once a decade. The sitcom was dying in the early '80s when The Cosby Show came along and gave it a shot in the arm. Suddenly, there was a plethora of black and white family sitcoms in the mid-'80s, some of which did not make it in the long run.

Jump forward a decade and Friends is the new hot show. Suddenly, you have a plethora of ensemble sitcoms about young people in various situations.

Rather than try to be innovative, the networks capitalize on a trend and run it into the ground, leaving viewers shaking their heads wondering why there's an overall lack of good shows on the air.

There are still good shows currently, but not as many like in the great decades like the seventies and eighties. There were so many good shows back then you could hardly keep up with them all - especially in the pre-VCR, pre-TiVo seventies.

Right now, I think the sitcom has lost its predominance of American television for good.

I thought it was pretty funny for what it was (not a serious attempt at a sitcom but a total political satire) and if you took it as such, you'd "get it". You also have to appreciate crass, "Married With Children" type of humor or else you definitely wouldn't like it.

That one show with Julia Louis-Dreyfuss...the one before her successful one she has now. It was pretty bad.

Also 'That 80s Show' was very lame. I grew up in the 80s and it was a hell of a lot better than that. Very poor representation and way to give those who weren't around back then a very crappy view of the decade. Jerks!

Actually thats my Bush was not a political satire, it was a sitcom satire. It was poking fun at the entired sitcom genre. From the crazy neighbor to the ditzy blonde, to the catch line "one of these days Laura, Im gonna punch you in the face". And while it did have some political issues in it, it was more a satire of the sitcom than political.

True--I was thinking that, I just didn't phrase it properly. Oops.
