What was a popular family show 10 years ago?

I'm looking for names of the most popular TV shows in the US. Something that was popular 10-12 years ago, something that everyone watched and people still know about. The same way everyone now knows about Oprah Winfrey's show, or Gossip Girl, or Friends etc, except it would be a family show.I'm not sure what family shows are considered, but whatever that is, that was popular 10 years ago, that's the type I'm looking for...The type that every family would be tuned in to watch after dinner. I'm looking for the names of those shows...


Disclaimer: Just in case someone wants to mention that I ask for advice here and then insult the board, I wanted to say that if my previous thread was insulting, I still feel the same way, except now more strongly and with less questioning and more certainity. So I guess just don't respond if you feel the personal attack.
I liked "The Nanny" and still watch the reruns on the weekend. I find myself laughing outloud and I'm by myself. The 1st show was on tv in 1999. Not sure if this is what you mean by "family show".
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
Home Improvement maybe? Or 7th Heaven...

those might be too far back though, I'm not sure lol

I also liked Dawsons Creek, but that was more Teenage Drama than family show
CG/Mod CG (soap bars) since 8/12/08
CO wash/Cond: Kathymack & Flowermoon Castille soap bars, V05 Chamomile Tea, Suave Ocean Breeze, Biolage Conditioning Balm
Styling loves: DIFFUSING! CK, KCNT, KCCC, FOTE (on dry hair only), Re:coil, Proclaim gel
Not sure about: Boots, Tweek, KBB Milk, DMHJ
HATE: plopping, FOTE on wet hair, BRHG
10 years ago would definitely be Friends. More like 15 years ago or so, would be Home Improvement, Family Matters (Steve Urkel!!) Seinfeld, Cosby.

Hope you don't mind if I guano the thread a bit, but my son in law's cousin wrote for "Seinfeld" and "The Simpsons". She is currently writing for "The Old Christine." I talked to her on the phone a couple of weeks ago and she is a hoot. Very funny personality. I look forward to meeting her and her family. They live in California and will be visiting soon.
