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.

Shows Like Lady Dynamite: Boundary Pushing Female Comedy

Female led comedies that tackle the thorny subjects of racism, sexism, body shaming, and mental health -- all with a keen eye, and genuine warmth.

Shows like the Office: Fly on the Wall Style Comedies

You know the type - comedy shows where the characters talk directly to the camera, popularized by 'The Office'. Best not to think who exactly the documentary is being made for, who funded it, etc. Just suspend, and enjoy.

Shows Like You Arrested Development: Dysfunctional Family Dramedies

Maybe it's thanksgiving and you need to put your family's dysfunction in perspective; this list of modern sitcoms, featuring the likes of Shameless and Parenthood, may be a good place to start. Suddenly a couple drunk uncles and a recent divorce don't seem so bad!

Shows Like Flight of the Concords: Comedy from Down Under

OK, before we piss off any Kiwis or Aussies, we know there are two distinct cultures - but it didn't make sense creating two separate lists when you guys sound exactly the same to Americans!

Female-Led Comedy Shows

From the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to Broad City, these comedies have one thing in common--hilarious female leads.

Blue Collar Comedy

We love 'Modern Family', but you have to admit its characters' problems are distinctly upper middle-class. So to mix things up, we put together a list of the best American working class comedies.

Shows like Jane the Virgin: MomCom TV Shows

These comedies portray the funny side of motherhood, ranging from the sweet (Playing House and Jane the Virgin) to less conventional takes on being a Mom (SMILF).

Shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm: Painfully Funny Cringe Comedies

If you find awkward moments, humiliation, and social faux pas hilarious, you'll like the shows on this list. Bonus points if you root for misanthropes and enjoy extended pauses.
