3. Frasier
Frasier, like it or not, was pretty remarkably consistent from its first season through its eleventh.

There was a slight dip in quality around S8 or S9, but it bounced back. (One of the actresses got pregnant IRL or something and they had to write around it, but once she was back, the show resumed at its earlier level of quality -- or very close to it.)
