What shows have influenced our language the most?

What recent shows have influenced our language the most? — Tanya Veverka
Tanya, you mentioned Friends — specifically Chandler’s distinctive cadence — in your e-mail, and I say: Could you be more right? Also, folks who’ve never seen The Simpsons say, ”D’oh!”; same goes for Seinfeldisms like ”master of my domain.” And consider the once-demure Sex and the City nut who now spouts nicknames for every beau, body part, and sex act. I call it going Carrie Bradshaw.
