There's only a few I know of, being based in the UK, but I do like to watch King of Queens, Everybody Loves Raymond, and the no longer repeated According To Jim.

What about you?

I love Seinfeld, the first ten seasons of The Simpsons (after that I sort of lost track and stopped watching), Friends from time to time when I'm feeling nostalgic, The Big Bang Theory (yes, it's fashionable to hate it these days, but I think that's silly), the first three seasons of Community, and there's got to be a few more that I can't remember now.

Some American sitcoms that I feel I would like, but I never tried watching: The Modern Family, Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Parks & Recreation, The Office.

Don't everybody hate me but I really like Two And A Half Men, even after they fired Charlie Sheen. It's quite clever, more so than most sit-coms that I have seen and I have sampled quite a few.

On the comedy line, I really only watch Seinfeld.

Friends, Mike & Molly, Two And A Half Men (the ones with Charlie Sheen, preferably the earlier ones), IT Crowd (UK).

I used to watch a lot of Friends and I still like the occasional Big Bang Theory. BBT is very funny but the characters not nearly as interesting and multi-faceted as Frasier's.

I like Ally McBeal, which IMO qualifies as a comedy since it is filled with comedic moments.

Boston Legal is also pretty good, at least what I saw of it.

Coincidentally,
I've started watching that series as well, it's a spinoff of The Practice that I liked. Although the term "spinoff" may be a stretch since only two characters from the old series reprised their parts and they were only recurrent ones from the last season. So far it seems good, I've only seen half a dozen episodes, it feels like something between Ally Macbeal and The Practice. I think they are all babies of the same mind.

huge Seinfeld fan. Also watch Family Guy and South Park, The League (which is Family Guy-levels of low brow, heads up), Archer, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

A handful of others too. I like comedy over most other genres

Well, as an American, I... actually don't see a ton. I have an obsessive personality, and so I tend to find a few things I like I really get into them.

Frasier is easily my favorite. It's smart, it's funny, and I can really let myself escape in it.

Everyone Loves Raymond and The King of the Hill are the other two I've really gotten into. Raymond is just down to earth, silly fun, and King of the Hill has some surprising depth to it sometimes (it took me a while to get past the southern good-old-boy feel to it, admittedly!).

I've caught bits and pieces of other things. I do like King of Queens as well, although it's not quite obsession-level, it's like, "I happen to be home with a pizza and need 21 minutes of fun, and hey, look what's on!"

Amazon.com has all 10 seasons of How I Met Your Mother so I started watching that. It's not -too- terrible I guess, but really Frasier and Seinfeld have spoiled me as far as sitcoms go.

I absolutely loved the first six or so seasons of How I Met Your Mother. If they hadn't dragged it out, it could have been one of the best sitcoms ever.

I've grown myself out of Everybody Loves Raymond, got Seasons 4 & 5 at HMV and by the end of it I decided I'm kinda tired of it at the moment. I might enjoy it again in a few months time, time will tell.

Golden Girls, Kate and Allie, Third Rock, Sex and the City, Friends, did watch Ali Mcbeal and did watch Everybody loves raymond for a while but got fed up with the number of scenes that were just him and his wife yelling at each other - I can get that from next door!!

If you liked Ali Mcbeal, you will love Boston legal, it's by the same authors and even crazier.
