I think those shows have moments, but not necessarily for binging: I'd put them in the "very good" but not "excellent" category. I agree with you that the first three seasons of Miami Vice were the best. I worked on Season 4 myself, and there was a big drop-off in quality, and the producers were aware of it and tried flogging the writers and cast as much as they could. I can't believe I omitted Star Trek! That's an unforgivable omission. The rest all fall into the "OK/Good" category for me, but not great. All of the Norman Lear shows to me are extremely dated and hard to watch today: they just don't hold up 40+ years later. (In fairness to them, I would say that about a lot of 1980s/early 1990s sitcoms as well.). I wasn't a fan of Friends or Cheers, but I recognize their importance in TV history, and those are actually not too bad. I liked M*A*S*H to a point, and I worked on a bunch of them for Fox Home Video back in the day. Basically, the shows from Season 7 on (where Radar leaves) all seem to get full of themselves and very preachy, and they're really hard to watch. Seasons 1-4 supervised by writer/producer Larry Gelbart are stellar, pretty much among the greatest TV shows ever made.
