Five Classic 80s Sitcoms That Still Always Seem to Be on TV

COsby

There aren’t too many television shows that are rewatchable.  And by that I mean you can see each episode at least five times without getting tired of them.  The best part about these shows is that aside from hairstyles and clothing, they are completely timeless.  Sure you might see feathered hair but the subject matter is always relevant.

Family, love, careers, and everything you’d want in “life” are explored on these shows.  I guess it’s no surprise that they’re constantly picked up by Nickelodeon and The Hallmark Channel.  Hell even Ovation and WE are getting into the mix.

For some reason, these five shows are always on, and they always end up in my DVR list (mainly because no good sitcoms exists anymore, but that’s another argument altogether).

Cheers

Cheers

You can catch that on some weird channel here in NYC.  I think it’s like 83 or something.  Honestly I don’t even know the network.  But I’m willing to bet that in every state some channel has Cheers appearing in syndication.  And why the hell not?  The show rules.

The Cosby Show

Cosby

I will never, ever get tired of the sweaters.  Although I have to say once Olivia (Raven Simone) came onto the show it kind of fell a bit.  The moments between she and Cosby were awesome but I loved when Rudy was cute.  Those were the days on that show.

Who’s The Boss

Boss

I’ve literally watched like 5 season already on DVR because it’s been on so much.  Talk about a classic case of a show being way better in the first few seasons.  Does anyone notice how domesticated and lame Tony gets over the years?  He was so tough in the beginning.  College Tony sucks.  And how gay is Jonathan?  That hair!!!  Mona sucks by the way.   I can’t stand whenever she’s in the room.

Full House

Full House

Just to see the Olsen twins trips me out every single time.  That and John Stamos with really long hair.  I still can’t get over Bob Saget and the fact that he uttered the line “You ever suck d*ick for coke?” in Half Baked while being known mostly for playing Danny Tanner.

The Golden Girls

Golden

Well let’s give it up for Betty White.  She’s the only Golden Girl left and she’s still going strong.
