(wrong)

But you're not too far off: it's a farce.

Wait, I just noticed Privateer Puddin's post (I was responding to Gurok, didn't see there was another page on the thread). Yes, it is Frasier.

I half suspected that might be the case.

Love that show!

I was honestly starting to question my sanity when you said it wasn't Frasier.

Is it Sabrina the teenage witch?

I think I have seen that house also, but not sure where.
First thing that came to mind was Charmed, or possibly Mork & Mindy

Hmm. Screenshots from a CBS affiliate from Dallas, Texas. It's most likely an American sitcom from between 1985 and 1999. Shame I never really watched sitcoms on CBS...
Edit: A bit of research tells me this probably aired between 1995 and 2000.
So, I'm guessing Picket Fences.

Being in Dallas Texas area I watch CBS-11 all the time, but I get the feeling the show was more like the 1980s. I don't recognize the actor shown in the second shot but I got to thinking the actor could have been a guest star and not a primary actor which got me to thinking that the house may not be the house from the show, but it could be a house that showed up for 1 episode.
I am going to guess Major Dad.

To be honest, my guess of 1995-2000 is based on an ident timeline video I got when I looked up where the station was. 1995 is when the video showed a square behind the 11 and put The Eye of Texas...
I'm going to guess Bless This House, 1995 American version.

That makes a lot of sense and good detective work. I got here in the late 80s so don't remember when the logo changed or if it had always been like that. with that being said it could have been a rerun that the screenshot was taken from but I am starting to agree that it might be newer than I originally thought.

The house is the Cook Mansion, in Piru, California.
It's appeared in lots of films and TV shows...
