Poll: Which of These Classic Sitcoms Should Be Revived?

These days, is any TV show ever actually dead?

Networks have been reviving old television shows left and right, most recently with “Will & Grace,” which debuted its new reboot last week on NBC. Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally all returned to play Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen, respectively.

But NBC is far from the only one looking to old sitcoms for inspiration. Netflix rebooted “Full House,” with “Fuller House” just recently premiering its third season on the streaming platform. ABC also officially announced that a “Roseanne” reboot is in the works at the network.

And that’s only to mention comedies. From “Twin Peaks” to “The X-Files” to “Get Shorty,” just to name a very few, television is deep into reboot mania. Which begs the question: which classic sitcom that hasn’t gotten a revival yet would you like to see return to TV?

There’s “Cheers,” which is considered by many critics to be one of the greatest sitcoms of all time. The ’90s brought us both “Friends” and “Seinfeld,” which still retain loyal fanbases who would be thrilled to see more. And while they’re more recent, reboots of “The Office” and “30 Rock” would certainly find an audience, to say the very least.

UPDATE: This poll has been closed, with “Seinfeld” taking the top spot.
