Happy 25th birthday, FOX (poll 2/3 : comedy)

This Sunday, FOX celebrates its 25th birthday. For this special occasion, I thought it would be interesting to see which FOX shows the SpoilerTV community enjoys the most.

After sci-fi and before drama, why don't we take some time to talk about comedies ?

Poll 1/3 : Science-fiction / fantasy.
Poll 2/3 : Comedy.
Poll 3/3 : Drama.

FOX isn't NBC, they don't have such a long history with comedies, but in 25 years, FOX has nonetheless built itself a reputation of breaking rules.

Irreverent and unapologetic, those were the key words in the early days at FOX, when they launched Married… with Children on their first day on April 5, 1987 (the reason why the pilot is rebroadcast today at 7pm) and then The Simpsons before Christmas 1989, two shows that became emblematic of the network since then. Those shows pushed boundaries compared to the goody-goody shows on the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC).

FOX tried to innovate with Married and The Simpsons in the late 80s, and they did the same thing in the late 90s by launching Action and Malcolm in the Middle during the 1999/2000 season, the first comedy series without a laugh track. HBO had tried that with Dream On (1990-1996) and The Larry Sanders Show (1992-1998) but I'm pretty sure Action and Malcolm were the first on network TV.

And today, when I look at the wonderful Raising Hope coming out of a brilliant second season, I feel that FOX's legacy is preserved.

Anyway, in the following poll, you can choose up to 5 FOX comedy series. Pick with caution :

UPDATE : I'm updating this thread and the one about dramas in order to get a few more votes before I compile the data and present it (probably in the thread on dramas) in a fun way at the end of the week. Compiling is basically looking at the polls and then writing down the results. Anyway if I could get a few more votes on those two threads, which currently have around 2,000 votes whereas the one on sci-fi / fantasy shows already has 5,248 votes (fell free to express your opinion on that one as well), that would be great. PS : I'm discovering the new version of Blogger now, and boy, does it suck.
