Whats your rank for Night Court among the other 30 min 80s comedies?

Recommended Posts

Nothing after Shelley Long left was great, IMO.  


This is a terrible take.

Hell I even saw an interview with Kelsey Grammar that said that change saved the show from the staleness and nowhere to take things that was starting to set in because of the Sam/Diane arc.

Here is someone's take from IMDB. I had mostly forgotten many of those. 

They have Night Court at 24/25.

 

 

Edited to add: I seem to remember that there was a rumor that Clinton appreciated Markie's rudeness in the Lincoln Bedroom during the 90s, ( but I don't remember whether it was Bill or Hillary).

And she had the sexiest voice too, kinda Smokey but bubbly at the same time.  I was very young when they show was on, but dad let me watch it because he liked ted knight and the blonde.

Why the h8 4 Alf?

American Dad is in season 16 just rippin it off...

Alf Tales > Alf. 

Get that American Dad shit outta here. That and Family Guy both suck balls and don't belong anywhere near this thread.

I like family guy, but American dad is just garbage.

Dan Fielding and Markie Post.  Those were the best parts of Night Court, followed by Bull.  

 

Give me Barney Miller any day over Night court though.

Dan Fielding is in my top 3 favorite TV characters ever

Top 10 for me, he was the greatness.  He was always good in pretty much everything he did.

Meredith Baxter Birney doesn’t tear the Lifetime channel a new a-hole in the 2000’s without the epic that is Family Ties.

Speaking of Markie Post. Occasionally when there's nothing else on I'll watch a little bit of a rerun of the old Buck Rogers series just to get a look at Erin Grey. I was quite the fan as a kid. Lo and behold, who should turn up as a guest star on the show tonight but Markie in distinctively different wardrobe than what she wore on Night Court. Yowza.

I'm guessing Buck was interested in getting to know her better

No, it was a Post made by Biz Merkie.

They say she's just a friend, but I'd totally risk it and fuck her.

Cheers. Night court. Cosby show. (For me)

The jokes they set up for Bull were great and I think of them all the time. Just the other day I bought a lottery ticket and thought about Bill getting 5 out of 6 numbers .... again.

Newhart has to be in the conversation. 

Yep.  Newhart I or Newhart II ?  

The single greatest ending to any series, comedy or otherwise was Newhart II.

Newhart I was a 70s show so not really included in OP, Newhart II was very much 80s and I agree on the ending, it was greatness.

The Bob Newhart Show was great. Newhart doesn't hold up.

I love the early Newhart, torwards the end there was too much focus on Micheal and Stephanie, the funny wore off and it was just two superficial airheads.

Would Taxi be considered 1980’s even thought it started in the 70s?  It ran until 1983 I think.  If so, I put that second behind Cheers.  I did love me some Night Court though.

I agree on Taxi. You could say the same thing about WKRP in Cincinnati which ended in ‘82. But you could stretch it, Seinfeld started in ‘89. Cheers though, with Diane, was my favorite show in the 80’s. Then Night Court.

My absolute favorite television show of all time as a kid. Like a lot of great shows in that area era, it over extended its run and limped to the finish line, but it’s peak was funny as hell. Just a great concept for a show that allowed for a core cast to deal with a diverse general public. And the core cast was fantastic. I particularly liked the interactions between Dan/Harry and later Dan/Roz. I’ve always kinda felt Newsradio was its late 90’s clone.

I loved Night Court. Markie was so bangable and Laroquet was fantastic in it.

Some classics cross over into the 70s (WRKP, jeffersons, threes company) or the 90s (married with children)

Don't insult NewsRadio by comparing it to Night Court. NewsRadio was ten times the show Night Court was and still holds up today (RIP Phil).
