Frasier is The Ultimate SitcomProving once again that Paramount Comedy really is the home of quality comedy, Frasier has been declared the best sitcom ever!
The list featured last night in Channel 4’s The Ultimate Sitcom, in which industry insiders decided on the funniest and most cherished comedy series from the last 50 years.
Another Paramount favourite, Seinfeld, came in third while Spaced, the cult classic that we co-produced back in '98 was ninth. Boston's finest Cheers also ranked, managing to nab twelfth place.
Seattle’s most neurotic psychiatrist beat the likes of Dad’s Army, Porridge, The Office and Blackadder to the top spot which frankly takes some doing!
You can catch Frasier back on Paramount Comedy 1 every Monday to Thursday @ 10pm.
So there you have it. You can read the full list below and remember, it was compiled by the UK's leading comedy actors, writers, producers and directors, so that's about as close to a guarantee of satisfaction as you can get!
