Next time I'll do the poll right.

Cheers was okay. I think it was overrated. But Taxi was an institution. I think it set the standard for shows like Cheers to follow. For a while, it was the only reason I watched TV, other than football and racing.

Taxi was great, but I would have to go with Cheers.

Also, that's two of the best theme songs in tv history.

Cheers. A little biased since I've actually been to the original Bull & Finch Pub and the replica in Faneuil Hall.

Default Re: TV battle: Taxi vs. Cheers

That's a tough one.

I didn't appreciate Taxi until I was older. Such a good show, amazing cast.

Cheers was so well written and had an amazing cast as well. Cheers deserves even more respect because it handled the changes in casts so well (something that had killed other shows). How many shows could introduce a major character (Frasier) so late into it's run and get away with it.

My favorite line from Cheers was from Sam: "How many women do I have to score with before I understand just one of them?"

My favorite thing(s) from Taxi:

Both aired before I was old enough to watch and appreciate sitcoms. I think I was about 10 when Cheers ended, and although I didn't watch it I remember the finale being a big deal. From the reruns that I've seen of both shows, I'd give it to cheers.

There were a lot of Really Good Sitcoms in the 70s and 80s. It would
be hard for me to pick a single favorite. WKRP, Night Court, Family Ties,
Taxi, Cheers, Seinfeld ......... I think the one I most looked forward to
watching the most was either WKRP or Night Court. It would really be hard
to pick a single favorite from the large pool of good shows.

She was on Celebrity Apprentice, got really sick of her talking about how good an actress she was and always referring back to Taxi. She is quite the narcissist.
