The Office and 30 Rock.

jonsblond's avatar

@Likeradar It is hard to choose between the two. I can’t decide which one makes me laugh more.

GAMBIT's avatar

I agree. The Office is hilarious. I’ve only watched a little of 30 Rock but I remember it was funny.

kevbo's avatar

I agree about the Office, but I gotta say that I’ve fallen in bro-love with Craig Ferguson.

tellelefler's avatar

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Hands down the funniest show I’ve ever seen. I give them some serious props for making it into 4 seasons. I’ve watched too many unique, well written shows on FX get chucked out the window from a lack of viewer response, and they almost did the same with Always Sunny.
High five to the underdog!
Cable can’t stand one more boring, predictably dry sitcom.

GAMBIT's avatar

@tellelefler – I’ll see if I can get that on Netflex I don’t have cable. Thanks for the tip.

two and a half men and the big bang theory :)

eponymoushipster's avatar

It’s Always Sunny on Philadelphia.

hands down the most hilarious show on TV. period.

@tellefler – they’re signed for at least 2 more seasons – the whole gang!

Buckeye's avatar

@tellelefler: It’s always sunny is definitely the best out there. They are pushing the limit with every new episode they come out with. Best character ever has to be charlie. IMDB said its “Seinfeld on Crack” I would have to agree

tellelefler's avatar

@GAMBIT—yea theyre not running any new shows right now, but you can check out some episodes on the FX webpage. right now they have a small, loyal following. spread the word! their imdb taglin: Seinfeld on crack. And truly, it is.

critter1982's avatar

The Office or Scrubs, probably the Office

Mr_M's avatar

Only “Two and a Half Men”.

tellelefler's avatar

@ eponymoushipster—good to know. I hope they run as long as the simpsons.

GAMBIT's avatar

@tellelefler – Thank you

eponymoushipster's avatar

@tellelefler and @GAMBIT – you can also check out some full episodes at www.hulu.com

the DVDs, if in your area (or on Amazon), are well worth the money. i rewatch the episodes over and over.

tellelefler's avatar

@eponymoushipster—DEFINITELY worth it. I own all but the latest so far.
And I don’t buy a whole lot of television DVDs.

GAMBIT's avatar

@eponymoushipster – I’ve been watching The Office and Monk on hulu.com. It is a great site.

Monk has turned out to be one of my favorite detective shows.

blondie411's avatar

I think you can only watch the last season of Always Sunny on hulu.com

eponymoushipster's avatar

@blondie411 yeah, that’s why, unfortunately, i had to t say some. They used to have ALL of them on there, but they took ‘em off (probably to promote DVD sales). When new episodes are running, they appear on hulu 8 days after the original airing (so, iow, the Friday after the next episode).

@GAMBIT – i haven’t ever been able to get into that show.

GAMBIT's avatar

@eponymoushipster – he’s a little off kilter kind of like Colombo, Sherlock Holmes and Bozo the Clown mixed but he solves every mystery.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@GAMBIT i’ll have to watch a couple more episodes. it’s not serial, is it? can you fall into it at any point and know what’s going on?

blondie411's avatar

of course it was to promote dvd sales, those pesky little buggers! My boyfriend and I were half way through watching the series when they came down! Oh well now we’ll have to rent them the old fashioned way. Hilarious show!

GAMBIT's avatar

@eponymoushipster – Each episode is different. It starts off with a crime. Then Mr. Monk has to solve it. Monk himself is a basket case but he has a knack for seeing what other people can’t see at crime scenes.

steelmarket's avatar

Monk and Psych, back to back. Also reruns of Ab Fab and Red Dwarf if they are on in your area.

Emdean1's avatar

Family Guy & Two and a Half Men

TenaciousDenny's avatar

I’m going to agree with everyone that said It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I can’t get enough of that show.

Buckeye's avatar

This is a good link to use for episodes. You will have to install a zango player but I haven’t had any problems so far.

GAMBIT's avatar

@Buckeye – Thanks Buckeye

Judi's avatar

I crack up at Boston Legal but did it end when Denny and Alan got married?

Bri_L's avatar

@Judi OOO Boston leagal! Great show

Sooner_Coolkat's avatar

Even though the series only lasted like two season, Rob & Big was really funny. I also think that Hell’s Kitchen is one of the funniest shows ever.

eponymoushipster's avatar

What is everyone’s feeling on Human Giant? I noticed that they don’t rerun it, and it is a little off the wall, but is anyone else at least amused by it?

marinelife's avatar

A friend recently got me hooked on Big Bang Theory, and I find it laugh-out-loud funny almost every week.

fireside's avatar

The Daily Show
The Office
Colbert Report
Psych
Monk

steve6's avatar

The Big Bang Theory

jonsblond's avatar

Anyone see Free Radio on VH-1 last year? I laughed so hard that I cried. I have no idea if it made it to it’s second season though.

Why do the good ones die so young?

tiffyandthewall's avatar

drake and josh, spongebob, that 70s show, 2 1/2 men, roseanne, and there’s this show with Red of that 70s show, but i can’t remember the name of it. worst week? not sure.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@tiffyandthewall yeah, it’s Worst Week, which is based on a UK show.

tellelefler's avatar

@Sooner_Coolkat—YEA. ok my crazy brother in law made me watch that once and we usually disagree about EVERYTHING, but i seriously laughed a lot at Rob & Big. the sheer absurdity of it all…my favorite: the kashi cereal box episode….when Big realizes that one of his eyes is always shut more than the other (i mean HELLO, everyone has noticed that on him…), i could NOT stop laughing.

Sooner_Coolkat's avatar

@tellelefler – Yeah, that was a great episode. That is where they dressed up as older women and had their pictures on the cereal box. Rob’s cheesy smile was really good. I hate that the series went away because Big’s girl was pregnant. Just hang out and do crazy shit with Rob and take care of your kid on your time off. Rob has a new show called Fantasy Factory that is pretty cool but I like Rob & Big a bit better so far.

tellelefler's avatar

@Sooner_Coolkat—oh! i didnt know thats why it went away. haha, being a responsible daddy, now i like that! heck, just make it part of the show! Mtv needs a little bit of REAL LIFE on its network, don’t you think?

mccabe's avatar

Check out www.casttv.com. No commercials!

samaurikitten's avatar

The Office for sure.

The_unconservative_one's avatar

funny:

Hell’s Kitchen
Family guy
Robot Chicken
The Soup

IMO Not even remotely funny:

The Office

kayysamm's avatar

Family guy & The Office.

Most people hit it on the spot here.

Shuttle128's avatar

@The_unconservative_one Wait….how?

The Office and Arrested Development were the funniest shows on television. Had to plug Arrested Development even though it’s been over for several years (the movie’s in the works).

thesearmsofmine's avatar

Currently on television:
The Office
Curb Your Enthusiasm
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

On DVD:
Flight of the Conchords
Summer Heights High
Arrested Development

Weeds and Monk can be funny but they’re not primarily comedies.
Also, Friends is a classic.

Sarcasm's avatar

British TV plug: Check out “The Mighty Boosh” and “The IT Crowd”. They’re certain winners!

Futurama, Arrested Development, The Office, Always Sunny, 30 Rock are all great shows.

star_bug's avatar

The Office, UK series, totally original. However past and present then give Blackadder a go. Hilarious to the right sense of humour.

bree00's avatar

Trailer Park Boys!!!

Zen's avatar

Funny: Seinfeld, King of Queens, Frasier, Monk
Unfunny: Family Guy

OpryLeigh's avatar

Technically it’s not on TV at the moment, the 3rd series ended a few weeks ago but, in my opinion, one of the best “new” sitcoms I have seen is Jam and Jerusalem written by French and Saunders and starring both. It’s one of those programmes that you appreciate more if you have experienced life in Devon or Somerset (England) and I have lived in both counties. The amount of times I watch it and think to myself how funny and yet so realistic it is and yet completely unbelievable!

It’s about time Dawn French was made a Dame in my opinion!!!

JulieJewel's avatar

The Soup hosted by Joel McHale

proXXi's avatar

Top Gear

Family Guy

Robot Chicken

btucci10's avatar

Arrested Development was the best show on television until it got cancelled. I would have to say that the funniest show that is still airing new episodes would have to be either The Office, Flight of the Conchords, or The Big Bang Theory.

although, I have to admit that I find Stewie Griffin to be one of the funniest characters on television. He’s the main reason I watch Family Guy…

proXXi's avatar

Sifl and Olly!!

Robles's avatar

Hannah montana and family guy is very good funniest show.

Marie123's avatar

Jersey Shore haha

jk The Office

spookie's avatar

Psych is extremely funny if you can get all of the 80s pop culture references. Another funny show is Wings, however it is not shown regularly as it is a rather old show but still funny if you like witty, clever comebacks and jokes during hilarious situations.

soozaloozakpow's avatar

I think the funniest current shows is Bored to Death. Its one of the few to make laugh out loud :)
