A 2004 series organised by Creator/TheBBC. First there was a [[http://www.listology.com/professor/list/britains-best-sitcom-bbc-poll-final-result public online vote]] involving 100 [[BritCom British sitcoms]], then the top 10 finalists each had a one-hour episode dedicated to them, hosted by a celebrity fan (often found as extras on [=DVDs=] of the series). In a [[http://www.offthetelly.co.uk/?p=4464 final debate episode]], the first 10 were then ranked in order by a public phone vote. The results were:
