3. Father Ted
4. The League Of Gentlemen
5. The Thin Blue Line
6. Yes Minister/Yes, Prime Minister
7. Coupling
8. The Vicar Of Dibley
9. Jeeves And Wooster
10. One Foot In The Grave

Honorable Mention:
Only Fools And Horses

Maybe people prefer a sneery superior Edmund to a snivelling loser Edmund?

Maybe.

But that's a bit like saying that one only wants Tony as a winner.

The first season of Blackadder just isn't as funny, clever and entertaining as the other seasons which by the way set the bar really high.

May I add that I thought Blackadder Back & Fourth wasn't as good as the second, third and fourth series either.

I maybe alone on that though.

Probably:
1) OFAH
2) Fawlty Towers
3) Mrs. Brown's Boys
4) Citizen Khan
5) The Royle Family
6) Max And Paddy
7) Phoenix Nights
8) Extras
9) LOTSW
10) Gavin & Stacey

But there are loads so it's difficult to do a top 10.
