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 Stranger Things: Popular Sci-Fi

A list of some of the highest-ranked, non-animated science fiction shows--perfect if you're looking for something to watch after Firefly or Stranger Things.

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.

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.

Seth MacFarlane TV

Best known for his animated hits American Dad! and Family Guy, MacFarlane is also a successful actor and producer of live action comedies.

Shows Like Mystery Science Theater: Sci-Fi Comedy

Like 'Futurama' or 'Rick & Morty', but presumably with a bigger props department, these live action sci-fi comedies take space opera and superhero tropes and run with them.

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 Firefly: TV Space Operas A-Z

Animated, live-action, classic, modern, slick, cheesy: we've got the whole range of TV space operas on this list, for every kid who dreamed of being an astronaut and wound up at Comic-Con instead.
