I have to say Friends. Maybe because the younger characters appeal more. Joey's personality also made the show funny in a "inmature" way. I could never get in Seinfeld. :P

Now that I have friends on dvd i watch just that and devil games when i do watch tv. what about everyone else?

Seinfeld is more timeless. Friends hasn't aged well for me...be it it's dated a la 1990s or dated al la people in their 20s I'm not sure with - things that were funny are sort of banal now Also Seinfeld has a sh!tty apartment and he's a millionaire on the show. the kids on friends are unemployed and live in awesome apartments that they try very hard to pass off as lucky happenstance.

Friends is pretty funny but they fill it with the stupid plot lines and garbage like that. The jokes that have nothing to do with anything are what make me laugh (Mostly Chandler and Joey).

I am still going to go with Seinfeld because it is always funny no matter how many times that you watch it. I wish it was still on with new episodes.

As well as someone else put it, it is funny over and over again.

Seinfeld for sure. Kramer is the man.

Joey from friends is just a herb... although jennifer aniston and courtney cox are smokeshows

Never got into Friends. Lately, my girlfriend puts it on the TV at night while I dork around on my Kindle Fire till I fall asleep. Just listening to it, the show seems so anti-funny. Ross, in particular. Possibly the worst sitcom character ever. Aniston is smokin', though. :uni:

Seinfeld, meanwhile, might have the best assortment of primary and secondary characters ever (challenged maybe by the Simpsons, but that isn't fair since it's animated). It seems like almost every episode is a quotable classic.

Both are fantastic shows, but if I had to choose one, it'd be Friends.

Definitely Seinfeld, and to snowball off of that, Curb Your Enthusiasm is hands down my favorite television program of all time. Larry David is a comedic genius.

Larry David is a comedic genius.

The guy CAN write for other people to deliver funny lines, but he IS NOT funny when he himself takes the stage. Like on the Marriage Ref.

I'm with ya.

I view "Friends" as one big smokescreen...you throw together three moderately-attractive women and three moderately-attractive men...and people were going to be so enamored that they'd laugh at anything short of Holocaust jokes.

I never found "Friends" funny in the least.

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

Agreed :)

Frasier was 10x funnier than either of these shows in my opinion. Still, I could watch Friends with the sound off because of Jen Anniston :)

I hated Friends. But even if I liked it, I don't see how this could even be a debate. Seinfeld without a sliver of doubt.
