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.

Modern CBS Sitcoms

What's more feel-good than a solid CBS sitcom? Nothing you wouldn't go to jail for selling, that's for sure!

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 Two and a Half Men: Chuck Lorre Sitcoms

Critics may not love Chuck Lorre comedies like 'The Big Bang Theory' and 'Two and a Half Men', but that they have proven among the most popular network sitcoms of all time is indisputable.

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.

Lighthearted Ensemble Comedies

If you are looking for cynical humor, look elsewhere--these shows feature goodhearted characters with great chemistry and limited snark.

Shows like House: Eccentric Genius TV

They're good at their jobs, which is why people tolerate these geniuses who could be charitably characterized as "gruff and complicated."

Shows Like Coupling: Spiritual Successors to Friends

While nothing can replace the Friends shaped hole in your heart, these modern ensemble romcoms may at least create new, smaller holes, which will be left similarly unfilled at the show's conclusion. Why is TV watching so painful!

Shows Like Big Bang Theory: Geek Squad Sitcoms

The stars of these sitcoms may be pretty awkward, but at least they have each other to discuss gaming, cult sci-fi, and romantic failure with.
