Right now? The Office (U.S. version) - hands down. Particularly since I used to work for someone much like Michael Scott. Some of the things he says and does are not that far fetched, and I could write for that show based on my experiences there. This is actually the only show I watch right now.
As far as classics go, in no particular order:
1. Leave It To Beaver 2. The Andy Griffith Show 3. Seinfeld 4. Everybody Loves Raymond
I think one of the best family sitcoms ever is one that didn't air on TV originally. The Columbia "Blondie" movies starring Penny Singleton and Arthur Lake.
As far as sitcoms currently in production, the ones I like the most are the kid-based ones airing on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, "iCarly", "Good Luck Charlie", "Wizards of Waverly Place". I think Brenda Song of "Suite Life on Deck" is one of the funniest actresses in a long time (even though I think "On Deck" isn't nearly as good as the original "Suite Life of Zack and Cody"). Emily Osment is really funny on "Hannah Montana".

Since I first saw it, I Love Lucy has been one of my favorites. A couple of years ago Keith Thibodeaux (aka Little Ricky) came to an event at my church and personally signed to me a copy of his book, Life After Lucy: The True Story of "I Love Lucy's" Little Ricky. It's a treasured possession of mine, for sure.
I guess that in terms of T.V. situation comedies, I've found much to like from every generation. The Honeymooners, The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, The Jack Benny Program, The Donna Reed Show, Make Room for Daddy, Dennis the Menace, Leave It to Beaver, Hazel, Mr. Ed, The Courtship of Eddie's Father, Get Smart, Barney Miller and Full House are but a few that I've loved to watch.
Among today's shows, I probably like the PBS program Arthur best. It's not easy to last on television for fifteen years, but Marc Brown, Ken Scarborough and company have managed to do just that. A really nice gem that airs on Nick Jr. is The Backyardigans; it's funny, creative and features some very clever songs. It's entertainment that the whole family can really enjoy, and that's what I prize most of all in any television series.

^I LOVE Arthur! I'm almost 20 years old, but I still watch Arthur occasionally. It's not really "babyish" compared to a lot of other kid's programs; sometimes I can spot some hidden jokes that adults can appreciate.
