Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you ever wanted to know how someone could write a boring book about the best and funniest sitcoms, here it is. I know it's supposed to be scholarly, but, still, if you're going to release it to the general reading public, why not make it--at least a little bit--fun, or even funny?

Everything you never wanted to know about some great shows.
