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 Mom: Modern Sitcoms with a Laugh Track

These lighthearted comedies buck the trend towards cynical humor, and harken back to an earlier era of network sitcoms complete with multiple cameras, live studio audiences, and, yes, laugh tracks; These throwbacks remain current--featuring diverse casts and discussing topical issues--without losing their lighthearted vibe.

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.
