If you're an Internet/TV nerd, you've probably caught wind of Vulture's Sitcom Smackdown, by now. The series, which ran on NYMag's culture site, featured a bevy of writers weighing in on the greatest sitcoms of the last 30 years. In the end, The Simpsons emerged victorious after a hard-fought battle with Cheers.
The Internet disagreed.
Unsurprisingly, Vulture's readers weren't as hip to what Cheers had to offer, as they selected Arrested Development and The Simpsons as the final two, even though AD didn't make it out of the second round of the critics tourny.
Arrested Development became the people's choice after garnering 63 percent of the votes.
Arrested Development! It is the Internet, after all. Arrested Development won fairly easily, earning 63 percent of the vote to The Simpsons' 37 percent. Congrats, Arrested Development fans; we hope you're doing a chicken dance to celebrate. [Vulture]
Arrested Development will make its triumphant return to our lives when Netflix floods the Internet with an additional season this spring.
