The state of the modern sitcom is in flux. Cable dramas have over taken the network sitcoms as the most relevant piece of television in popular culture. But it’s extended even beyond that. Some shows like The Big Bang Theory still earn (relatively) astronomical ratings, but they are losing their cultural cache rapidly. While we welcome an innovative approach to television and appreciate all the wonderful dramas and a few creative comedies (lookin’ at you, You’re the Worst), the sitcom can and should still matter. So we’ve decided to procure a time machine and create a sitcom with actors at their peak. The rules are tenuous at best but we know that we would watch whatever the hell we just created.
