So Vulture did a thingie on which sitcom is the greatest of all time: Follow the Ultimate Sitcom Smackdown. The last two were Cheers and The Simpsons. The Simpsons won. In the interview I saw the guy said they won because the show is timeless. In other words the characters never age, the surroundings never change and so on. FOCUS: Take a look at the link and brackets. Which would have been your pick and why? Coming down between those two, for myself, being a child of the 80's I'd have gone with Cheers. If I had to pick overall between them all I'd go Roseanne all the way. To this day if I see Roseanne is on I always stop down. Nevermind I've seen every episode (up until that fake ass shit after the lottery win) I'm still watching.
