What 1990s Sitcoms Are NY, NJ and CT Still Watching?

The resurgence of sitcoms, scrunchies, and The Oregon Trail have brought a wave of 1990s nostalgia into the 21st century, making it a massive part of our culture.

With the reboots of old sitcoms like "Full House" and "Will and Grace," Dish satellite TV provider has compiled a list of the most 1990s popular sitcoms that people still can't get enough of. 

The top 1990s sitcom in New York is "Seinfeld," which aired from 1989 to 1998. NEw York and Massachusetts were the only states that watched it the most -- not surprising, given the show's setting being in New York City.

New Jersey's favorite '90s sitcom fell in the top-ranking series across the U.S. overall, "Friends." Connecticut's favorite, "Everybody Loves Raymond," is among in mid-range rankings, with a total of three states favoring the show.

Other top favorites throughout the U.S. included "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and "That 70's Show."

Among the favorite '90s sitcoms, six of them took place in New York City: "Everybody Loves Raymond" (Long Island), "King of Queens" (Queens), "The Nanny" (Flushing), "Seinfeld," "Friends," and "Will and Grace."

The nostalgia has been good for business: among the shows that have been rebooted in recent years are "Boy Meets World" (as "Girl Meets World"), "Full House" ("Fuller House), "Will and Grace," "Roseanne," and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch."

Dish came up with the list by scanning for the 20 most popular sitcoms that premiered or aired primarily in the '90s, then compared their search interest from 2004 to present on Google Trends.
