Live Poll: TV Sitcoms That Call for Revival

The revival of Roseanne (1988) was welcomed with very high ratings securing its shot for another season. This isn't an isolated case as we remember the successful revival of Will & Grace (1998) last year. So who knows? Maybe some popular 80's/90's sitcoms, that ended more than 10 years ago, "will grace'" the little screen a second time.  

Which of these TV series would you most interested to see revived on TV?

If you want to add another example there's also Full(er) House. And Murphy Brown is on the way.

FYC:
Friends
King of the Hill
Mad About You
Wings
Just Shoot Me!
Blossom
Cheers
Night Court
The Wonder Years
Silver Spoons
Punky Brewster
Doogie Howser (Doogie and Wanda's 12-year-old son joins the family practice!)

Boys Meets World already did it with Girl Meets World.

"Cheers" was already "revived" with "Frasier". 
"Friends" was already there, it was the first actually.
I think I have the "Wonder Years" too.

Which of your suggestions have not been revived yet?

Are you saying that Friends is in your list? Because it isn't.

There was a story that a Mad About You revival was in development, but I guess it could still be included.

I wouldn't say Frasier was a revival of Cheers.

I'm sorry Jen, and yeah, Peter, I thought I had "Friends". I know for sure that I had "Friends" on the top of the list but I must have removed it accidentally. Let's update the list now:)

Wow, so many of these would be interesting to see, like Doogie Howser - certainly not my favorite or the best show on the list but, since he was just a kid, it would be interesting what kind of ideas would propel his adulthood on screen. By the way, this is so funny: Maybe some popular 80's/90's sitcoms, that ended more than 10 years ago, "will grace'" the little screen a second time. That's a great touch. The intro is good all around.

May I suggest one small edit, though? 'Just a comma after "ratings," as in:

The revival of Roseanne (1988)was welcomed with very high ratings, securing its shot for another season.

& Id add The Wild Wild West but move agents into the 1880s-pre WW1 era:
The Night Of the Black Tom: German agents sabotage US munitions storage in NJ,
The Night of the Villa: Villa terrorizes Columbus NM,
Agents battle Germans arming  Mexican forces in 1913, etc.
Have new agents play West etc with West as Col West to oversee agents.
