If you are talking ALL spinoffs, "Knots Landing" wins by, well, a landslide, lol.

If we are just talking sitcoms, Frasier does come immediately to mind. For the first five years or so, I honestly think it blew Cheers out of the water.

Frasier is the best spinoff ever, no wait, make that the best sitcom ever. Period. End of discussion.

I agree with Pete and Gladys. I liked that show. It had Harry Morgan in it too.

The Hogan Family is a spin-off? All they did was replace Valerie Hartman with Sandy Duncan and change the title.

One of the other greatest spin-off series with much better writing and acting than most shows of its genre is "Knots Landing." This series was quietly a stady mainstay on the CBS Thursday night line-up for 14 seasons. Through the years it weathered some heavy and popular competition running opposite it such as "Hill Street Blues," "St. Elsewhere," and "ER." Although a spin-off, "Knots Landing" was actually written and submitted to CBS FIRST but the network wanted something with more "glitz and glamour" so "Dallas" ended up on the air before "Knots." Even though the series did have some "extraordinary" storylines its focus was always on character. This detail to character and relationships, the excellent writing and acting put it above the rest. The overall quality is evident in comparison to other shows of its kind and is also why it out lasted all of those other types of shows including "Dallas." It is surpassed in prime time longevity by only three TV dramas in American television history: "Gunsmoke" (20 seasons), "Law and Order" (20 seasons to date), and "ER" (15 seasons). "Knots Landing" is tied with "Bonanza" at 14 seasons!
