DBB's Mike Payne quickly came up with the following:

Welcome Back Kuester
The Brandon Bunch
Charlie's in Charge (or Villanueva Explains it All)
Dharmond and Greg
I Dream of Jennings
The Jerebersons
Kentavious and Kel
Perfect Singlers
Monroe and Mindy
Popey Brewster
Sanford and Smith
Smithfeld
Singler Spoons

Kevin Sawyer came up with not a sitcom:

Datome  -- Taxi 
Kentavious Island -- Gilligan's Island
Singler -- Frasier 
The Andre Drummond Show -- The Andy Griffith Show
Caron Your Enthusiasm -- Curb Your Enthusiasm
I Love Luigi -- I Love Lucy
Luigi and Charlie -- Laverne and Shirley
Spence Dinwiddie -- Spin City 
Happy Dayes -- Happy Days
The (Tayshaun) Prince of Bel Air -- The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

Josh SmithCharlie Villanueva, and Will Bynum -- Scrubs
