Shows like Fleabag: Best Dramedies

The ancient Greeks divided their plays into comedies and tragedies, but the smiling and frowning masks are more extremes of a spectrum than binary variables, and some of the best TV shows of the past two decades, like Fleabag, Atlanta, Succession, and Shameless, find humor in deep pain and poignancy in funny situations.

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 Modern Family: Modern (Ish) ABC Sitcoms

All your favorite, not favorite, currently unbeknownst, and frankly disliked ABC sitcoms post 2010.

Most Popular Current Network Sitcoms

Unlike HBO, Showtime, or Netflix, the traditional broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox) need to attract advertisers, which means their comedies cannot be too edgy, dark, or explicit, which makes for some of the greatest feel-good sitcoms of all time including Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Superstore, and The Good Place.

Shows like Saving Grace: Our Better Angels

These series run counter to television's race to plumb the depths of human depravity, and focus on angels who come to earth to help humans do the right thing.

Shows like Schitts Creek: Small Town Sitcoms

Small rural towns and remote English villages populated by eccentric but lovable locals with a dash of romance--leave your big city cynicism at the town line.

Shows Like Wilfred: Comedies that Hear Voices

Whether the voices come from imaginary friends, dead people, or their own head, the protagonists of these sometimes dark comedies may have a hard time convincing others what they hear is real.

Shows like the Good Place: What is the Good Life?

Imagine if Plato had posed the question "what is the good life?" not to Glaucon, but to a 21st century screenwriter.

Shows Like The Good Place: The Divine Comedies

While they may not tread in Dante's footsteps, these comedies of heaven and hell at the very least keep male actors with deep voices employed playing God.
