I agree, I thought he freshened up the show a bit after seasons five and six. I'd also add that it's too bad they didn't find him way sooner and and cast him as Ben because he's a way better actor than Jeremy Miller and they could've did more with his character when he got older. Miller was okay when he was very young, but he did not have the ability to carry an episode when he got older.

Seasons 1-4 are by far the best seasons in my opinion, though.

I also agree that Ashley Johnson added nothing to the show, but I do kinda like the episode where she imagines all the fun everyone has downstairs after she goes to bed.

I'll add a few of mine

Laverne & Shirley would've been better if Lenny, Squiggy, and Carmine were written off after the first season.

The Hogan Family was better with Sandy Duncan. I like Valerie Harper, but I feel like after they replaced her they decided to just had fun with it and everyone got a chance to shine more.

Some people don't get the love for Friends, but the 90's show I'll never understand why people like so much is The Nanny. It's overbearingly gaudy.

Perfect Strangers was underrated because it hasn't aired on TV in syndication for years, since last shown on ION TV back in fall 2007. I know it's now on hulu.. But still it might be nice if it should consider rejoining N@N.

I also enjoyed Family Matters on N@N, they should reconsider re-adding to lineup.

If Nick@Nite is unable to add classics, then there's no point keeping the Nick@Nite block at all. An adult block on kids network is ridiculous!

I think The Facts Of Life should’ve gone on for another season or three!

The Facts Of Life and Different Strokes should've been one season wonders.

While I like The Dick Van Dyke Show, I much prefer his deservedly long running crime drama Diagnosis Murder. It is one of the best crime dramas ever made.

I hate Two and a Half Men.

Mom is stupid.

I don't like Seinfeld.

I don't like the Nanny.

I love Friends, Frasier, Home Improvement, The Golden Girls, Full House, Growing Pains, Dr. Quinn, Roseanne.

I don't like The Big Bang Theory or How I Met Your Mother. I think they are more overrated than Friends.

I like the second Becky on Roseanne better.

I think South Park, Family Guy, The Simpsons, American Dad, etc. are all trash.

I don't like How I Met Your Mother either, but it never had the popularity level first run of Friends. And HIMYM has flopped in syndication as well since ending its original run, reduced to the 2AM hour on WGN. Freeform it quickly got pulled from, and didn't last long on Lifetime. Meanwhile pathetic TBS might as well be renamed Friends and other occasional shows network with airing 6 full hours a day. Even their primetime ace The Big Bang Theory doesn't get that long of blocks compared to Friends.

I think season 8 of The Facts of Life is just as good as the earlier seasons. Majority of fans don't feel this way. I mentioned recently how almost 20 years ago a website called Jump The Shark listed the change in season 8 as the number one reason. Just because Mrs. Garrett left doesn't mean the show jumped the shark.

I also think The Facts of Life is better than the other female based shows. The Golden Girls get a lot of praise by critics and fans. I think that show is so overrated and repetitive. How many flashback episodes does a show really need to prove to people they ran out of ideas and just beating a dead horse? I don't understand the popularity of The Golden Girls or why it's so huge in the gay community.

I prefer the show (and character) Phyllis over Rhoda. I don't think CBS gave the show a chance to find an audience. Phyllis was just as funny as The Mary Tyler Moore Show or Rhoda.

I like the middle seasons of Roseanne (5 & 6) over the earlier seasons. Not a lot of fans do.

You're not alone. Linda ruined Alice with her attitude. Diane Ladd wasn't a bad replacement but I feel because of Linda's jealousy, the writers didn't know what to do with her and made her an awkward phase until getting an actress Linda wasn't threatened by. I have not bought seasons 7 - 9 of Alice on DVD and I don't plan to. The show stinks in those later years.

I did too. I only watch his seasons when rewatching Bewitched. Dick York came off too mean in a lot of his scenes. I don't think he had good chemistry with Elizabeth either. Elizabeth looked more relaxed on screen with Sargent than York.

I used to love I Love Lucy but as I got older, I saw how outdated it was. The show really forced that message women need to stay in their place or else. I cringe when I see the scenes of Ricky spanking Lucy for doing something he didn't like and then her patting her butt afterwards letting us know he spanked her hard since it's still sore. I would never let kids see this show today because I don't want them thinking women need to be punished for having a mind of their own. I love The Lucy Show though. I watch seasons 1 through 3 a lot.

I completely disagree. Adding Leonardo DiCaprio did nothing for Growing Pains, I thought he was annoying and boring. But then I'll agree the actress who played the older Chrissy didn't do anything for the show either.

Diagnosis Murder sucks. It's one of the worst shows ever made. The Dick Van Dyke Show is one of the best sitcoms ever made.

I don't care at all for the original Hawaii Five-0 or MacGyver, both are bad in my opinion.

Mork and Mindy was a terrible show nothing more than a 30 minute Robin Williams stand up routine.

The show was not about women needing to stay in their place "or else." (If that were true, Ethel would've never stood up to Fred or given as good as she got.) The point of the show is that Lucy was a screwball who often came up with crazy schemes that wound up creating a mess of things. Plus, she often acted like a stupid brat (never backing down when people told her, "No, you can't,"), so that is why Ricky spanked her.

It was also pretty much established that because Ricky was "latin", he was a macho guy with an explosive temper, and therefore not representative of the average American husband when he'd go on these tirades or spank Lucy.
