Roseanne technically started in the late 80s but ran into the late 90s, so it earned its place on this list. It was a ground-breaking sitcom highlighting the realities of many blue-collar families in America. Roseanne Barr was a far cry from June Cleaver, and people ate it up. 

2. That ’70s Show (1998)

“Hello, Wisconsin!” That ’70s Show is a sitcom centering around the Forman family. It follows a group of high school students hanging out in the Forman’s basement, frequently partaking in cannabis circles.

Friends is one of the biggest sitcoms to come out of the nineties. It’s still in heavy syndication, and the cast recently had a reunion. It follows a group of twenty-somethings growing into thirty-somethings in New York City. 

5. The Nanny (1993)

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has one of television’s most memorable theme songs. It follows Will Smith playing a fictionalized version of himself, moving from West Philadelphia to Bel-Air to live with his affluent aunt and uncle. The lifestyle clashes proved chucklesome, and uncle Phil (James Avery) taught heartfelt lessons. It also had a reunion. 

8. Married With Children (1987)

Again, Married with Children started in the late 80s but ran into the late 90s and was the ultimate anti-sitcom. It centers on the Bundy family living in Chicago, living paycheck-to-paycheck, and comically dealing with their dysfunctional family and nosey neighbors.

9. Home Improvement (1991)

Home Improvement launched Tim Allen’s acting career. He played Tim the Tool Man Taylor on his cable TV show of the same name within the sitcom. Tim loves home improvement, but he’s not very good at it. So he has a handy assistant who keeps him from killing himself most days on his show. 

10. Seinfeld (1989)

Was there ever a doubt? Of course, Seinfeld is the number one voted response. If not for the George Costanza character alone. It was a show about nothing that somehow entertained for nine seasons. It centers around Jerry Seinfeld playing a semi-fictionalized of himself, his three close friends, and the daily shenanigans they endured. 

11. Martin (1992-1997)

Living in Detroit, Michigan, Martin Lawrence, who plays Martin Payne and his girlfriend Gina (Tisha Campbell), is hailed as one of the most important Black sitcoms of the era. The show’s blend of Black culture and comedy made the characters relatable, fueling a devoted fan base. I can still hear the opening theme song in my head, “Maaaaartin, Maaaaartin, Maaaaartin Lawrence.”

12. The King of Queens (1998-2007)

A hysterical 90s comedy, The King of Queens is about a working-class couple’s life and relationship living in Queens, New York. Fans adore Doug (starring Kevin James) and Carrie (Leah Remini) for being relatable and hilarious.
