7. Dick Van Dyke Show
Steve Levitan (creator, writer): "I grew up watching the Dick Van Dyke Show. I grew up in Chicago and that show was on every night, and I dreamed of being Rob Petrie...of having a family and working on a comedy show. It didn't seem too attainable when you're a kid growing up in Chicago, but somehow it's happened."
