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.
