Cartoon classic THE SIMPSONS has been named the best comedy TV show of all time in a new poll, the CM reported.
Editors at AOL Television named the long-running animation top of a list of 50 of the greatest small screen funnies, claiming, "The townsfolk of Springfield... have become engrained into modern pop culture."
Seinfeld was named second, followed by All in the Family, The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Cheers.
None of the top ten shows are still running - and only six of the top 50 are currently on the air; The Office (14), South Park (16), Curb Your Enthusiasm (18), 30 Rock (20), Scrubs (40) and Family Guy (47).
The top ten is as follows:
1. THE SIMPSONS
3. ALL IN THE FAMILY
4. THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW
6. THE HONEYMOONERS
7. THE COSBY SHOW
10. I LOVE LUCY.
