    The main issue I had with One Day was that it would have worked better as a family drama rather than a sitcom. Too many of the plotlines were not the kind of stuff you should laugh at, like Julie running away and Ann's second husband dying (and leaving her a stepson to raise). It ended up being so heavy that you didn't really enjoy a lot of it.

    Thenshiw simply was not funny even without that. Especially the dreadful "Alex" years.

    Add me to the list of "One Day At A Time" haters. That show was wretchedly awful, thank you very much Missy Baxter. Bonnie Franklin was utterly devoid of charisma. Mackenzie Phillips was coked out of her mind. What deviant thought Schneider using his master-key to enter the apartment of three women around the clock was funny?

    The success of "Scrubs" makes no sense to me, I watched several episodes and didn't laugh once. The acting is so broad it's as if the cast know the scripts are devoid of humor and feel they have to over-compensate by acting goofy.

    Even the theme song pisses me off. The "Alex" years were beyond a POS.....

    Franklin's co-star Mary Louise Wilson agrees with you on the bitch part of that, she also thought the show wasn't funny. Wilson asked to let go after just one season.

    MLW also said that her "bowels would freeze" every time she got a new script to read. However, her character was beyond out of place on the show. Ann never needed a friend to vent to because that is what the daughter's were for. Ginny was not funny, either. Knowing the true behind the scenes story, you could tell thst she had nothing invested in her character, she just wanted out....

    It was very popular but I hated The Royle Family and Shameless - anything involving farting or bodily functions or just disgustingness. Barf.

    Same here. I loved Don Knotts on Andy Griffith, but I absolutely loathed him on Three's Company. I'm surprised so many people actually preferred Mr. Furley over the Ropers.

    Totally hated Monty Python's Flying Circus when they repeated it. Just couldn't understand why it was considered to be revolutionary comedy unless the revolution was not being funny. Mrs Brown's Boys is a pile of do do and Still Open All Hours is just a reincarnation of Last of The Summer Wine and is just as dire.

    i love Python but the ones with John Cleese are the best, now is all the sketches funny no they aren't. but than you say that about anything really. i'm a bigger fan of their albums actually than the tv show. but to each their own i guess, comedies i can't stand off the top of my head? well there's The big bang theory i cannot stand the show and i detest it with all my being and i love the theme song really only cause i'm a huge BNL fan that's about it. every blows Raymond as i call it. i love the cast on that show do not get me wrong all of them are really talented people but i can't stand the show. there is also Two and a half men as well that i cannot stand either, but than i don't watch today's sitcoms either though i did watch the reboot of murphy brown that i really loved. true it wasn't as good as the Original show but than the show had been off the air for 20 years and it was still a pretty solid season i think too
