Best Comedy TV

A round-up of the best live action comedies, ranked by ratings, popularity, awards, and influence on other comedies--including the full range of RomComs, dark comedies, sitcoms, and more.

Parody TV

Whether these series are parodying the detective show, medical procedural, space opera, or western, they all expertly exploit the tropes of more serious genres.

Shows like Veep: Comedies with Rapid Fire Jokes

While few shows can rival the joke density of Veep or 30 Rock, the series on this list come close, scoring extremely high on the jokes per minute meter.

Shows Like Scrubs: Who Says Hospitals are Depressing?

More outright comedy than just drama with a couple laughs thrown in, these medical shows will have you chortling by association next time you visit the hospital (do it quietly).

Shows like Mighty Boosh: Transatlantic Absurdism

This collection of (relatively) modern live-action absurdist shows borrows from both sides of the Atlantic, mixing the Noel Fielding crowd with some Adult Swim staples. Check it out, ya dingus!

Shows like Medical Police: David Wain TV

David Wain excels at producing absurdist parodies that whose silliness borders on the surreal--but if you loved the Airplane movies or Mel Brooks broad comedy, these shows are for you.
