its hard not to vote for 'the mary tyler moore show' cast from your list...but...

i would definitely include 'the dick van dyke show' with dick, mary, ann gilbert, rose marie, morey amsterdam, richard deacon, and carl reiner...that cast would definitely get my vote...

and a sentimental favorite for me is 'wkrp in cincinatti'....

FYC Ally McBeal ... more of a "Dramedy" than a sitcom, and 1 hour in duration with commercials... I won't be butthurt if you choose not to include it.

Good list of good shows with some unforgettable characters. I'd probably say early MASH, with 'Mary Tyler Moore' and 'Cheers' and 'The Office' in the running. 

My mother would roll over in her grave if I didn't suggest:

All in the Family 

: )

I had thought of a few other series to suggest (Will & Grace, Roseanne, & The Cosby Show; and All in the Family above) and realized that would take the list over 35 and the list could go on and on so I'd suggest some guidelines, such as "Sitcoms with at least 10,000 votes and an IMDb rating of 8.0 or higher" -- that's just an example but I'm sure you catch my drift.

Did I really just say "catch my drift?" Lol. I probably haven't heard that expression in twenty years. : )

Oh, and of course another possibility is to do two lists, still with guidelines but separating them by year of the first season, in order to be able to include more.

Ed, will you set parameters as Sara suggests or do you prefer to leave this as it is? Also, since all series are American, maybe it would be good to note this in the description
Something like: 

these American ensemble comedies

Glad to see this one go live.

Pencho ol' buddy ol' pal...

Could you take a look at this one - yes it's partially a "Social Experiment" but it also has sufficient options to be a legit poll.

Thanks in advance.
