TVaholic Ranks the 2005 Fall Season’s New Sitcoms

Of the 31 new shows to debut this Fall TV Season 10 were sitcoms, those 30-minute shows that are supposed to give you a chuckle now and then. We are far enough into the season that every new sitcom has been on at least a few times.

So how do they rank? Well I decided to play a game of: if all 10 shows were on at the same time and I could only watch one, which would it be? Sorry, no TiVos allowed in this game. That show would take the number one slot. Then I repeated it with the remaining nine and so on until there was only one show left, which got the coveted last spot on this list.

  1. How I Met Your Mother
  2. Everybody Hates Chris
  3. My Name Is Earl
  4. Twins
  5. Out of Practice
  6. The War At Home
  7. Kitchen Confidential
  8. Freddie
  9. Hot Properties
  10. Love, Inc.

Before doing this ranking I made sure that I had seen each show at least twice. This included having watched the series premiere of each. Ranking the shows was difficult. Not because of a plethora of great shows to choose from. Quite the contrary actually, it was hard to pick which one was worse than another. I did come to one conclusion during this exercise and that is if any of the shows from 2 through 10 suddenly vanished off the TV schedule I wouldn’t really care.

How would you rank the new sitcoms this season?
