    Seinfeld could be funny. Friends was just some "hot people" trying to be funny.

    I'm indifferent to both of them really, but if I had to choose, Seinfeld.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm kicks them both, though.

    The Drew Carey Show was just like watching a sit-com, with all the standard sit-com tropes. Seinfeld never felt like a sit-com.

    Except that in someways Drew Carey was more Relate-able to me , a person of the Mid-West then watching stuck up New Yawkers settign around in cafe's and coffee shops with their NEW YAWKER Problems.

    So I liked Drew Carey More.

    Friend was a show I went from enjoying to actively avoiding. It just got a bit too cliquey - which I know is pretty much the point of the show! - but after a few years, it just felt a bit self-involved. To be honest, I think the specific straw for the camel was the Emily thing cos I'd had a crush on Helen Baxendale. So the very idea that Ross could be engaged to her still have feelings for Rachel literally offended me And on the whole, even without that, the whole Ross and Rachel thing just started to get right on my... nerves.

    Seinfeld, on the other hand, is a show I just never got into in the first place. I've seen a few episodes here and there but I guess because I never committed to watching it on an ongoing basis, the very nature of the show 'not being about anything' never drew me in just from watching stand-alone episodes. Having said that, if an episode pops up on TV when I'm channel hopping, I might sit down and watch it. Whereas if I flicked over the channels and came upon an episode of Friends, I'd just keep on clicking that remote.

    So of the two, and despite it being the show I watched significantly less, I'd say Seinfeld.

    But really it's Frasier. By a country mile.

    Seinfeld failed the comedy part of sitcom.

    This seems like a really interesting matchup; because Seinfeld is one of the greatest shows of all-time, and Friends isn't even one of the best comedic shows of the '90s.

    Both funny and both had annoying characters, Ross/Rachel romance on Friends, and almost everybody on Seinfeld. But Friends had more heart and Phoebe > all.

    It's a shame that Friends' finale overshadowed Frasier's simply because Friends was the more popular sitcom. It's almost as if Friends found Frasier's script and tried to shoehorn their cast to replace the Seattle crew.
