even if that was the case, you used the word "ever", which would entail an extended period of time.

Simpsons pfft

I don't get what all the hoopla is about that show.I've tried to watch it several times wondering what is so funny.It still escapes me.

I classify it in the same league with Sponge Bob...Lame.

Drive???
I have to tell you I am a car guy and always will be.
Exotics to muscle cars.I just like them.

I can't afford the exotics but I've had a few muscle cars.
1970 Nova, 1966 Nova, 1968 Firebird, 1970 Chevelle, 1979 & 81 El Camino.

That show was bad.The cars don't make the acting or the story line any better.

I still liked it, I thought the acting was good and the storyline was OK.
If you want to get a nice car before the price skyrockets, get an AMC or Rambler Muscle Car

Sorry. The correct answer is:

"It's Garry Shandling's Show."

The Simpsons lost that title based on its output from 2001-present. Knowing when to call it quits is important for shows.

And, what, no love for "Ned and Stacy?" It was like Married with Children without the kids to block the spousal hatred.

You said nice car and AMC in the same sentence

Remember Unhappily Ever After?
That show had some awfully funny stuff for a while.

At first, but it was picked up by Fox in 1987-88 when Fox was only broadcasting a few shows.

The episode where Tom Petty sings "The Waiting" when the rest of the cast is away for a birth is easily one of my favorite TV moments. IIRC, Garry promised to trim Petty's hedges as payment.

Quite the self-aware show to the point of interacting with the studio audience. Plus it had the killer Herman's Hermits theme song.
