Default TV Shows that were Good From Start to Finish?

We always talk about shows that started off good but went Stale at the End of it Run (Roseanne, Cosby Show) or Shows that started off bad but was a Great Show by the time it ended (Cheers, Seinfeld). And then those Shows that had a Weak period Somewhere in the middle after starting off good but improved again by the end.

But What TV Shows do you think Was Good from the start of it run and stayed Good until the end of it run?

My List:
Home Improvement
Murphy Brown
Three's Company
The Golden Girls
The Dick van Dyke show

The Mary Tyler Moore Show is an example of a scripted show being "good from start to finish".

Cheers started off great. All the Diane years were good, better than the Rebecca years.

I agree about ER and Friends. Some episodes weren't as outstanding as others, but neither series was ever "bad."

I'll also include Curb Your Enthusiasm on my list. It may have jumped it a bit in later years, but the show was/is consistently great.
