I would be in the theater with Crow, Tom and Mike.

themagicspork said...

Boy Meets World! Love that show...seems like they had a lot of fun.

FSP said...

@Vicki - yes!

Roman Holiday said...

OMG!!! The Brady Bunch! Oh wait better yet Fantasy Island!!! the plane the plane......

Maja. With a J. said...

I'm going to pretend I didn't see the word "sitcome", and say Sons Of Anarchy. In which I would get rid of Tara and do filthy things to Jax Teller.

Maja. With a J. said...

Yes, "sitcome". That may or may not have been a freudian slip.

figgy said...

Northern Exposure.

I have never loved any other tv show as much as that one!

FSP said...

I would say Cheers, so I could drink beer.

pilly said...

I Love Lucy

Frufra said...

Maybe Happy Days? That might not be my final answer, but it's what comes to mind immediately.

IDoTheRobot said...

Revenge or The Office.

NernersHuman said...

Scrubs!

IDoTheRobot said...

Or Workaholics.

lazyday603 said...

I would love to have played Kelly Bundy's boyfriend on a premium cable (Showtime TV equals less clothing) version of Married With Children. I love Christina Applegate.

Agent**It said...

Any Nickelodeon show that Dan Schneider was associated with. We'd be living on my own private island with the $$ from the book that I would write.

jane3113 said...

Arrested Development or Curb Your Enthusiasm

Syko said...

Golden Girls. I'm the Blanche type.

Gtzisshe said...

Golden girls too!!
I'm more of a Sophia.

TV Junkie said...

I'd have to say Big Bang Theory. I love the big brains and the incredible comedy. Alternatively, i'd have to say Friends - a group of great friends who were happy for the most part, lived in NYC & almost never worried about money!

.robert said...

Hee Haw Honeys

dia papaya said...

Cheers was the first thing that came to mind. Not just for my Vodka tonics either. I would to sit around and talk to people about random stuff all day long....

Second pick! Fantasy Island - where anything and everything is possible!!! That makes me remember Love Boat. Now that's where I want to be. Love Boat final answer!

billybob said...

Fawlty Towers. I’d like to be on the staff. I’d laugh all day, every day. I love laughing, can’t keep a straight face for long.....except in work. My family call me Auntie Fun.Have to be very sombre and professional in work!

Sadie said...

Bewitched because I'd like to wiggle my nose to make things happen instantly!

dia papaya said...

Stupid blogger! I meant to say "I would LOVE to sit around and talk to people about random stuff all day". Hmmm. That sounds familiar. Kinda like a CDaN sitcom!

Kelli said...

They seem like they have so much fun on The Office, so I would love to be on that. I loved King of Queens too- Kevin James, Lea Remini, Jerry Stiller- they had great chemistry and were all hysterical. I could have been Carrie's New Jersey cousin.

Roman Holiday said...

I forgot about the love boat!! Yes, I would be the captain on that!!!:)

Cryscee said...

The Cosby Show! or Scrubs.

bflogurl said...

I'll go with Facts of Life :)

EmEyeKay said...

@Maja - LOL!

izz said...

There are too many to choose from that i love dearly but it would have to be The Golden Girls or The Cosby Show

dia papaya said...

Me too billybob. I love to laugh. All. The. Time. I have to try hard to keep it together and NOT say dumb stuff while I'm at work.

No more typing on my phone.

rhinovodka said...

Absolutely Fabulous.

Ellin said...

All in the Family. Archie and Edith are a hoot!

billybob said...

heers, dia papaya....I love your name. You sound very exotic and thirst-quenching. We’d get into tons of trouble if we worked together....but the day would fly by! And if Frufra is there......Hi from the UK! Hope you are having lots of sunshine today.

Coriander Shea said...

What @Vicki said! Long live MST3K!

*karen* said...

Dallas! New or old, doesn't matter.

Wait. New. I just can't with the 80s hair.

dia papaya said...

@billybob - I've never been called an exotic thirst quenching drink before. I hope you meant drink. Otherwise, so scandalous!

Let's turn me into a drink! The dia part rhymes with papaya, just so everyone knows how to say it. DIE-a Papaya. Coming soon to a cruise ship near you! Hahaha!

Oh billybob, the fun we would have!

Maja. With a J. said...

@dia papaya - I've been wanting to tell you this for a long time but because someone else said something about your name, I'm going to right now: My name is pronounced "Maya", and my husband calls me "Maya Papaya". I was actually going to change my handle to that, and then you came along.

Bitch.

;)


Boriqua said...

Arrested Development or The IT Crowd. :)

djphob said...

Hmm. Partridge Family? Groovy bus and Keith all to myself... Yessss...

/lech

Maybe Gomer Pyle. I have such a soft spot for good ol' Gomey. I wouldn't want to be in the Marines though!

Bluevelvet said...

Sex and the City they lived in nice aparments, wore clothing I could never afford and never really seemed to work that much. Plus they ate out and went to the bar all the time without weight gain.

califblondy said...

Will & Grace, just because it's my all-time favorite show.

I'd get to live in New York, drink with Karen, shop with Grace, go clubbing with Jack, and have Will iron my clothes.

RenoBlondee said...

Three's Company! Oh how the zaniness would ensue!

Moose said...

"Liza and David"

sparklynan said...

As a kid I always wanted to live with Ricky Shroeder on "Silver Spoons"...handsome father and giant mansion with a train you could ride on! Also wouldn't mind living in Star Trek Next Generation...TO THE HOLODECK!

tara17 said...

I'm going with Sabrina the Teenage Witch (providing I have magical powers).

Kimberly said...

I love,lucy

tara17 said...

@sparklynan Not a sitcom, but kudos for mentioning TNG.

SusanB said...

Big Bang Theory or Frasier.

billybob said...

dia and Maja........you tasty little darlings! Yes dia....I meant the drink hahahaha......with a nice splash of guava juice.....and a pink umbrella!

mynerva said...

Beverly Hills 90210 - the original obviously because the remake sucks ass.

Brandon and Dylan would be fighting over me. I'd have a thing with Brandon for a while but I would end up with Dylan because everyone knows the bad boys are more fun!

Sigh. God I loved that programme.

Rolf said...

the same question was asked last week on the podcast "Totally Rad Show". I would wanna be in "Modern Family".

libby said...

I would love to live in Mayberry. I even like the clothes from that era.

But if we're doing "Golden Girls", I happen to be a Dorothy-type! I am neither super-tall, nor deep-voiced, but the dry sarcasm is my thang.
My friends in High School, we all had OUR GG identity---I have always been a Dorothy.

Roman Holiday said...

Ok I changed my mind again:) How about Andy Griffith - they were just so wholesome and aunt Bee cooked all the time!!!!!

dia papaya said...

Maja do not fret! We are the Papaya sisters. Separated at birth but reunited thru CDaN.

Embace your inner fruity drink and come out as the Papaya sister you know you are!!!

djphob said...

It's all fun and games in Mayberry until you have to eat a bunch of pickles or spaghetti. Or the Darlings come and you have to listen to that damn "Dooley" song.

Tru Leigh said...

The Munsters.

Roman Holiday said...

LMAO @ djphob! Imagine if that would be all the problems you had to deal with!!

dia papaya said...

Cheers to you Maja and billybob!

MadLyb said...

'Mary Tyler Moore'. I'd go to Mary's crappy parties and slut/pal around with Sue Ann, trade gossip with Phyllis and raid Rhoda's wardrobe. I'd also have a sleezy affair with Lou.

MadLyb said...

Oh - and help convince Murray to come out of the closet.

JW said...

Kate and Allie. Mad crush on Susan St. James.

Snapdragon said...

MST3K! Only Joel, not Mike (high fives Vicki). Except there's the whole 'stuck in space' thing. And the mads.

I would NOT want to be in The Office or The IT Crowd, because it would be too much like real life. :-D

Will & Grace would be great. Would love to sit around and be catty with Beverly Leslie.

B. Profane said...

Ignoring the sitcom restriction, one of Ernie Kovacs' shows or the original Ren & Stimpy. Because I'm the kinda guy who enjoys his acid flashbacks.

Of course, any straight guy is gonna answer Three's Company. It would be Baywatch except that, technically, it's not a sitcom.

bobbi_1025 said...

I'm with Maja on SOA. But since I'm wishing maybe Lost so I could have my way with Sawyer.

skeeball said...

Magnum PI, I know it is not a comedy, but love it

I Love Lucy, because it's I Love Lucy

Lost-Sawyer said some funny stuff!

billybob said...

Rhoda......I even liked that crazy Carlton the doorman!

dizzyeggs said...

favorite show would have to be the carol burnette show...i would love to have tried to not laugh along with the rest of 'em. i don't think it was a sitcom though. more of a weekly variety show.

dizzyeggs said...

maybe sitcom, friends...? just because of the guest stars. i would have to murder ross though. or plot with phoebe to put him in a rehab facility for 'exhaustion' i would easily be a female alt for gunter

OMAMA is BROKO said...

Would The Jetson's count as a sitcom?? Because that would be my choice.

If not, Different Strokes.

VIPblonde said...

Are You Being Served?

Alicia said...

The Addams Family - oh Gomez!

Twin Peaks - ill take a cup of Joe and a young Agent Cooper.. Or Bobby for that matter..on a long investigation..

Punky Brewster - I always wanted her wardrobe when I was a kids

bobbi_1025 said...

Holy shit I loved that show!! Along with Dr Who I used to watch that channel all day.

Del Riser said...

I'd go for the ideal, simple life...Ozzie and Harriet and hang out with Ricky, go to all the dances
and swoon with all the other girls.

Krab said...

Dick Van Dyke.

Sunny said...

Happy Endings. I love that kooky crew and I love Chicago

Alicia said...

Oh !! And The Osbournes .. That would be too much fun

Sherry said...

I Love Lucy or Seinfeld. Although MST3K would be awesome!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Friends - I could be Chandler. Or Sports Night - I could do the walk and talk every day and everything I say will be much wittier and intelligent then anything I ever say in real life.

Julie said...

Saved by the Bell or Full House!

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Frasier

yodelay said...

Silver Spoons.

trouble bubble said...

Ally McBeal though Wikipedia says it is : "legal dramedy". I used to copy her facial expressions in my early university years and my friends used to say I look like her. I would never let RDJ go.

Stacey Charter said...

Well if it wasn't a sitcom choice only I would obviously pick NCIS. 100x over. BUT since Enty said sitcom I will go with Big Bang Theory or 2 guys a girl and a pizza place. Hanging out with ryan reynolds AND nathan fillion?? Oh yeah baby!

Seachica said...

I'd love to be Lisa on Newsradio, though I wouldn't break up with Dave. Or put me in Friends -- a large NY apartment, easy work, and good coffee.

AndrewBW said...

I guess I would have to say I Dream of Jeanie, since Barbara Eden was my first crush. Either that or Married with Children.

djphob said...

@seachica NewsRadio, good call! I'd want to be Beth. And I'd be totally doing Joe. RAWR!

kerri said...

Seinfeld.

Sarah said...

Friends, it still makes me smile and rent control, hello!

Good UK snarky sitcoms now on US Netflix streaming are Peep Show and The Inbetweeners. Check them out.

Maja. With a J. said...

Oh, trust me.

My inner fruity drink is thoroughly embraced.

The Flower Girl said...

The Facts of Life

gr8p said...

The Cosby Show or the Facts of Life. I'll take Cliff & Claire or Mrs Garrett as my parents/guardians any day.

Dallas or Dynasty. Glamour, shoulder pads, money, wearing ball gowns for dinner, and of course, JR or Alexis Carrington Colby Dexter. HELLO!

Cornbread said...

I Love Lucy...yay!

AKM said...

"I'd love to be Lisa on Newsradio, though I wouldn't break up with Dave. Or put me in Friends -- a large NY apartment, easy work, and good coffee."

Great calls on both. I'd go on "Friends" and come between Chandler and Monica. Or, like Seachica, I'd be Lisa and stay with Dave. LOVE me some Foley!

Or maybe AbFab. Stay drunk in London with Patsy and Eddy all day.

dia papaya said...

How could I have forgotten Seinfeld. For the longest time I joked that Kramer was my long lost father. Not bc we look anything alike, but bc of the extreme goofiness and falling down humor. I just fall down a lot. Balance issues.

anongkhla said...

Phineas and Ferb.

Don't judge.

astrogirl said...

I think I would enjoy hanging with Mary and Rhoda, or maybe That Girl, Marlo. Not, Who's That Girl, but she could be fun too.

fancyscreenname said...

Modern family....I want to b near Cam. Sex and the city....They just had so much fun.

Mango said...

If I were on MST3K it would be with Joel, not Mike.

I actually lived The Office. I had a boss who was JUST LIKE Michael Scott, but not good looking. It was not fun.

I'm with TV Junkie: Friends or The Big Bang Theory.

disenchanted said...

Vicar of Dibley!

mihalina said...

Cheers!!!

ButterKwup said...

Community! Greendale is where I belong!

Turkish Taffy said...

Frasier. Exec producer Joe Keenan was a friend of mine in college, and he is one of the world's kindest and wittiest gentlemen. And his character shone through in every episode.

Agent**It said...

After deep reflection, I'm sticking with my 10:08 AM choice.

DivaJulia said...

Vicki! Loved your answer-MST3K! As long as I'm in between Crow and Tom Servo. Does anyone else love the BBC's "Outnumbered"?

redronnie said...

Downton Abby..and Sex in The City, I would have an affair with Ayden, steal Mr. Big from Carrie, and hang out with Samantha..or blackmail Patty from Damages..I would release my repressed bitch.

AlexT said...

Family Ties! I loved Michael J. Fox. I also loved the Cosby show.

MAC said...

Gidget, Leave it to Beaver or Andy Griffith. I like the idea of simpler times and I always felt I should have been born in that era.

motcollins said...

The Dick Van Dyke Show.

Except I want to live in the apartment that Bob Newhart and Suzanne Pleshette had.

And I would listen to WKRP in Cincinnati.

astrogirl said...

Agent I hear you. Maybe we could get Dexter Morgan involved too.

Popnursing said...

Gilligan's Island. I want to sleep in the hammock and drive the coconut car. I want to play dress-up and makeover with Ginger & MaryAnn, talk world events with the Howell's and then sneak off to make-out with the professor (since obviously no one shags). Then at the end I'll run real fast on top of the water in that accelerated zig-zag way to make my escape leaving them all crestfallen and ready to take on next week's episode w/out me.

Popnursing said...

I also really wanted to go visit the Tweedlebugs on Sesame St. when I was a kid. I mean reallllllly bad. Like, so bad I can still feel the ache for it. Wow - remember what it was like to be so young you could transport yourself right there into the story? :D. Next stop: crime fighting with Wonder Woman!

Ingrid Superstar said...

Late to the party, but, Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane.

Jennmcn said...

Cheers!

Henriette said...

I would be in Full House as Uncle Jesse's mistress.

Dagny said...

If it were any tv show, not just sitcom, I'd say "Firefly". But in keeping with the theme, I can't believe no one's mentioned "How I Met Your Mother". I guess that would be my choice.

emmreeser said...

Silver spoons comes to mind.

emmreeser said...

Silver spoons comes to mind.

PotPourri said...

Modern Family or BBT because of the Cali locations.

Not a sitcom, but I would love to be in CSI: Miami or Miami Vice, just not as a victim!

dirtydisher said...

The Waltons. They ate good and had an indoor toilet. Or The X-Files, because that would be a good time.

NYCGirl said...

"Modern Family."

smashbash said...

Seinfeld. Hands down!

Lelaina Pierce said...

Friends, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Sex & The City. And I've always thought it would be cool to guest on Family Guy. Or the Simpsons.
