I was talking with my mom and mentioned this thread, and she gave me her four and I thought it was worth sharing since I don't think any of them were mentioned (if I missed it, my apologies):

The Andy Griffith Show
Barney Miller
Frasier
Big Bang Theory

I liked all of these, too, and while BBT faded towards the end, it probably deserved strong consideration for my list as well...but I think it suffered from reverse-recency bias (if there is such a thing!).

Interesting that you included a cartoon. As I think about shows that would stop my remote today, one would still be Fat Albert. Bill Cosby, although turned out to be a creep, was a TV pioneer and visionary. I Spy was a little before my time but not Fat Albert snd the Cosby kids. Hey, Hey, Hey!!!

I watched some of those repeats not too long before Bill got himself in trouble. There were actually a lot of good life lessons for kids in those shows. Just sad
