    The Big Bang Theory, Two and Half Men, Monk, Psych, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Family Guy have lyrics in their theme songs. Kind of noticing that comedies will tend to have lyrics.

    I think through TV history mostly comedic series had lyrics to their theme songs. Famous ones include:

    Comedies

    The Beverly Hillbillies
    Gilligan's island "Ballad of Gilligan's island"
    The Addams' Family
    F-Troop
    Happy Days "Rock Around the Clock" "Happy Days"
    LaVerne & Shirley "Making Our Dreams Come True"
    MR. ED "A Horse is a Horse of course"
    My Mother the Car "She was a 1928 Porter..."
    All in the Family
    Dobie Gillis
    Welcome Back Kotter "Welcome Back" by John Sebastian
    Love American Style

    Action

    Batman - very limited vocals on this one.

    Drama

    Daniel Boone
    Johnny Yuma "Johnny Yuma was a rebel..."
    Crime Story - Del Shannon's "Runaway" remake

    Sci Fi

    Fireball XL5 - closing credits "I Wish I Were a Spaceman"

    Children

    Checkers & Pogo - kind of limited lyrics

    Sesame Street
    The Electric Company

    Animated

    Underdog
    Speed Racer
    Hercules
    Astro Boy
    The Flinstones
    The Jetsons


    There's probably more. Not too familiar with newer shows having theme song lyrics/vocals except those that rethread rock songs like CSI who have 2 Who songs for their themes... maybe 3... (Won't Get Fooled Again; Who Are You)....

    Some drama series had spoken intros over an instrumental theme.... Star Trek "Space the Final Frontier"; Babylon 5; Dragnet;

    My cell phone ringtone is from the greatest show of all time (IMHO!) "The Rockford Files"!
