    Seinfeld is easily in the top five sitcoms ever.

    Donna's boobs and red hair rule Rachel's whiny little twitness.

    Seinfeld somewhere between 5 and 10. Couldn't stand Julia what's her name.

    The theme song?! That song was one of the worst songs ever created.

    Maybe, but it sure performed on the charts.....

    In the United States, the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart for eight weeks. When the single was released 1995, it peaked at No.3 on the UK Singles Chart in the United Kingdom and at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States It also peaked at No. 1 on the U.S. Top 40 Mainstream and Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts.[4]

    It's probably my favorite sitcom, and maybe even my favorite show. While I can appreciate someone not liking it (it really comes down to whether or not you find the characters likable), I can't imagine not finding it funny at all, or calling it "useless". Later seasons aren't quite as funny as older ones, and they're a bit over the top, but once the show found its groove, it was both smart and funny.

    Like, if this scene doesn't tickle your funny bone at least a little, something's wrong with you:

    After a long day of dealing with gravely serious issues that people's lives depend on, I love to unwind at home with some old episodes of Friends.

    I don't know how true it is, but I heard that the guys from the Rembrandts retired after doing the theme song to Friends and just live off of the royalties.

    If that isn't a testament to lack of taste, I don't know what is. The theme song is absolutely horrible.

    wouldnt doubt it. the show is syndicated big time, and has been for years. they cash in every time that song is played.
