List Rules Must have real humans...so that leaves out such great classics as The Simpsons and King of the Hill.

My earliest memory of watching a sitcom is back in the '60s with The Dick Van D**e Show -- I was just a tot, but I remember sitting with my Dad while he watched the show and laughed his butt off. Through the power of reruns I got to see I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners. Over the years there have been countless sitcoms...many good, some great. In my humble opinion, these are the 30 greatest ever.

Tell me, by adding to the list, who you think I missed. Rearrange my list in your preference. I look forward to everyone's thoughts.
