I wanted to go with "Facts of Life" because it ran for so damn long and was probably the most successful for what it was.

But, when I wasted seconds of my life to ponder on the question, I concluded that "Full House" was far more corny.

Bob Saget *shudder*

Uncle Jessie/John Stamos *shudder*

Olsen twins. *double shudder*

BTW - I don't think "Charles in Charge" or "Mr. Belvedere" were all that successful.

"Growing Pains" was also quite terrible. I mean, how many years did that young girl (Chrissy) age in a season!

There's also "Punky Brewster." It got killed in prime time (I think they moved it against "60 Minutes" or "Murder, She Wrote" or some other big show) but it made a lot of money in syndication.

Actually, maybe the real answer is "The Brady Bunch." They made movies about that one! I want a revote!

LMAO@cynicole...I actually was about to put Brady Bunch and Punky Brewster but I thought they were too far back. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I actually liked Growing Pains. <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

"The Brady Bunch" will live forever. It's so embedded into the psyches of people who grew up watching it. And it has been alive and well in syndication for ages...and it's still watchable. "Facts of Life"? Pfff...not even close. Too girly maybe?

"Full House" gets compared a lot to the "Brady Bunch." It even cued the music the same way. They also had the same sort of daughter set-up...except that Jodie Sweetin (is that her name?) got uglier as the show got on and Eve Plumb got prettier. Each family also had a dog (Comet and Tiger)...and added on someone younger (the twins and Cousin Oliver).

And "Step By Step" was a messed-up Brady clone. Out of all the shows listed in the poll, it's the hardest for me to watch. Painful.

I actually liked "Mr. Belvedere." <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

Interesting tennis sidenote......I kept seeing this cameraman at Indian Wells the last two years (in press conferences) and he looked so familiar. Then this year I figured out who he was. He played the older brother from "Mr. Belvedere". I looked him up on the internet and I guess he is now a "filmmaker" who freelances for some sports shows. And please don't take this as a sign that I watched that imbecile show, lol.....I simply never forget a face <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

How could you not have Gilligan's Island on that list? It was so corny and yet so popular, and is still showing somewhere in the world and people are laughing at it. I think there are philosophy classes on the vital question, Ginger or Mary Ann!

I think it ties with The Brady Bunch for the most well-known theme song,. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

What about that annoying show with Cousin Larry and Balky I think it is called perfect Strangers. That was by far the worst of the lot. Who the hell thinks of these shows need to be put out to pasture and shot. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Based on the choices, Full House was the obvious selection. My personal selections were a toss-up between the Beverly Hillbillies and Three's Company. Though, when I read Tia Clara's post, I think I have a three-way tie! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

America is known for its lousy beer--and it's cheesy sit-coms! What a world legacy....
