Series: Britain's Best Sitcom
A 2004 series organised by The BBC. First there was a public online vote involving 100 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 final debate episode, the first 10 were then ranked in order by a public phone vote. The results were:
