Modern Family
The Middle (it's either horrible or hilarious depending on your tastes)
Hot in Cleveland
30 Rock I guess

Can we count Daria? Because that show was fantastic.

I used to really like watching Frasier, but there were some clunker episodes for sure. It's probably the only show with a laugh track other than Mr. Bean that I can stand to watch.

Corner Gas was a pretty decent series, too. The cast went on to make a couple of other shows, but neither is as good, from what I hear, and I haven't been bothered to watch much TV at all recently.

I know Community is pretty popular, and I've seen a couple of episodes that seemed like it was all right.

I liked Corner Gas enough, but yea, the new Brent Butt shows are downright terrible.

There's not much to add to Tartarus's list. I think 30 Rock is quite good - it's very clever writing and very well cast. Community is spotty - there are episodes of brilliance and some that suck horribly.
this is my music i hope you like it

I added Futurama and 30 Rock to my list, along with South Park and King of the Hill. I kinda forgot about animated shows.


I watched a few episodes of Modern Family, but it didn't really keep me interested. It was decent, but it never really got me interested. I also felt that the main "dad" (not Ed O'Neil...the blond girl's husband) was just a direct rip-off of Michael Scott.



And about The Office.....It's way too late to just "let it die". It feels like a zombie that's died many years ago but is continually resurrected in attempt to eat our brains. Ricky Gervais has always been good about ending a show when the ideas stopped coming...but the USA Office just ran with mediocrity for way too long. I'm not even excited to see it end this coming season...because in my mind it died pretty much in Season 4 or 5.

I forgot animated shows, too. Some of my favourites are Spongebob Squarepants (yes, it's often less than great, but when it's good, it's hilarious), the old Pink Panther and Roger Ramjet cartoons, and also The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The latter was funny to me for a wide variety of reasons, and really did have a couple of great episodes. There's a huge amount of meta humour and absurd wackiness that sold me on it. There are also a few crap episodes and a terrible holiday special. Overall it's still good, though.

edit:
Whose Line is it Anyway? is pretty solid, although a bunch of the episodes have rather dated references. Apparently a new show has started in the same vein? I heard it was pretty heavily scripted for an improv show, and Whose Line was already boxing the players in as it was.

I'm gettin down on the Thursday night NBC line-up. The Office (US), Community, Parks & Rec, Outsourced, 30 Rock, etc.

I think Community and Outsourced are my current favorites, very refreshing cast in both.

Love Modern Family on abc (I think) and Shameless on Showtime with Will H. Macy is fucking hilarious.

Portlandia and Funny or Die Network are great new sketch shows in a Whitest Kids You Know sort of vein; Portlandia is kind of hipstery, ice might love it. FDN is pretty out there and ridiculous, maybe like a funny, R-rated version of MadTV.

Surprised only one person has mentioned Parks and Recreation. That show is utter brilliance!

The Ricky Gervais show has been pretty hilarious from the start.

The Onion News Network series has been pretty good so far, too.

Aside from that, I'd just like to reiterate The Office, Community, 30 Rock, Big Bang Theory, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Modern Family, and Futurama. Probably forgetting a few, but I'm limiting myself to shows currently on the air.

Outsourced can be funny, but the storyline is terrible. They need to stop trying to make sense and just focus on the funny bits.

Oh yeah, Archer is fantastic! The second season has been even better than the first.

If you like Archer, you should also check out Frisky Dingo, which was an Adult Swim show a few years back made by the same guys (Adam Reed) with the same kind of animation style, but without the big name voice actors. Basically, the main character, Sterling Archer, is loosely based on one of the most hilarious characters from Frisky Dingo, Xander Crews.

I forgot to mention these two, and I'm not sure I'd find them as funny now, but 'Allo 'Allo and The Vicar of Dibley had great casts and usually some funny lines, even if a lot of it was just catchphrases.

Parks & Rec has been killin it lately. Community usually has better writing but the characters are less likable. Modern Family has that colombian hottie and the fat gay dude and for that reason I always watch it

Those are both fantastic shows. Too bad it's TV policy to cancel every Brian Fuller show the second season in.
