Can You Guess Your State’s Favorite Sitcom from the ’90s?

Whatever happened to predictability? The milkman, the paperboy, your favorite ’90s sitcoms on TV? Well, it turns out that even long after the laugh(track)s have died out, the most iconic sitcoms of the 1990s are still a big deal for viewers across the United States, whether they’re catching them again in reruns on cable or satellite TV or checking them out for the first time with a streaming service binge watch. 

Peep the map below to see which ’90s sitcom is your state’s favorite. Is it Friends, Fresh Prince, Frasier, Full House? Maybe even a classic that doesn’t begin with “F”? The results are in, and they’re ready for syndication.

Interesting Findings

  • Friends won out as the favorite in twelve states—the most of any ’90s sitcom. Could this show BE any more popular?
  • Though Will Smith’s character in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is “West Philadelphia, born and raised,” Pennsylvania’s favorite ’90s sitcom is actually Full House. How rude!
  • On the other hand, the Wisconsin setting is a big part of That ’70s Show, which may be why it’s the Badger State’s fave. 
  • Rebooted shows are shown some love. Out of the fifteen shows represented, four—Boy Meets World, Full House, Roseanne, and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch—have been revived. 
  • Or maybe make that five? Frasier star Kelsey Grammer is entertaining “six different ideas” for continuing the show. 
  • Only one of these shows is still in its original run. The Simpsons, favorite of California, Oregon, and Virginia, is still making new episodes and, after airing its 636th episode in 2018, became the longest-running primetime scripted series in TV history. That’s a lot of opening credits gags.
