What are your favorite sitcoms?

My favorite sitcoms (comedy TV series) are The Office, Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory. They are so hilarious.

I have too many: The Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock, The Middle, That 70's Show, It's always sunny in Philadelphia, The Simpsons, Two and a Half Men (with Charlie Sheen), King of the Hill and Family Guy. Im not sure if Ugly Betty was considered a comedy but I loved that show.

Yeah, I miss Charlie Sheen who was a highest-paid comedy TV actor. Ugly Betty was a comedy series, I liked it, too. I thought that That 70's Show was for kids.

I want to clarify my question. I asked about your favorite sitcoms that are currently showing on major networks such as ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX this season. Not the re-runs and old sitcoms.

I hate drama series including crime/cop shows and reality shows, too. So boring. I like Monk best because it has a mix of drama and comedy.

That fine with me! I still love my crime shows and NCIS is a # one show so I am
not along in liking it. I loved Peter Falk as 'Columbo' . I can't stand reality shows! I must take after my uncle who was a FBI man ! I wish I knew about CSI
when I was younger , I would had love a job doing like that, solving crimes.

I really like crime shows and behavior profiling psychology.

The Middle is the only sitcom I actually like. Brick the youngest child is my favorite character.

Sunny, Jake (the son) and Berta (housekeeper) make me laugh Maybe because I have met people just like them. I think the TV shows and characters that I find the funniest are the ones that remind me of people I know in real life (in little or big ways).

Bones is excellent, Big Bang theory used to be funny now its boring, Fringe is what i really watch all the time, it's the best beyond all current TV series, excellent acting, way ahead of everything else ahead, fun, informative, creative, engaging, different, and a fine science fiction for today's needs, especially with the world of real and cyber lives as everyone now have , so its kind of not too surprising why the alternate/parrallel univerise concept is such a hit...all the while the masses dont realise the concept is now 'buyable' simply because we live in the cyberspace as well.guess id stop here i can go on and on about Fringe lol

two and a half men is basically an insult to USA WHILE USA masses ARE dumb enough to like it...weird...
same thing with 20 years ago when the Simpsons first came along, it was a hit for the same reasons, people seems to give permission to insult themselve via tv entertainment i honesty find this quite depressing.

An insult to America, how? It's just a TV show.

The new Two and a Half Men: I just can't get into it. The chemistry b/t the actors seem off to me. Plus, the new guy (I can never remember his name), just sucks as an actor. He was the worst thing on That 70's show. I'm not sure if it will last too long.

I watch anything on BBC America. England has the best shows. My favorite is Doctor Who and Friday Night Dinner. I also liked The Inbetweeners before it went off the air.

Yeah, I think so, too. Maybe it will bomb someday soon or maybe they will rehire Charlie hopefully. If so, I think he will ask for more money. He was the highest-paid TV actor in comedy category before he was fired.

His name is Ashton Kutcher. I think it was a bad idea to kill Charlies off as I have feeling it not going to work with Ashton Kutcher. I saw on' TV Two and a Half Men ' is being rated as the # one best comedy , I am not sure how that can be said as there only been on 2x , it WAS the # one best comedy when
Charlie Sheen was on it!!

you have to be a media academic to understand this, sorry i just cant explain it you'd need like a few years in exposure to sociology, and media studies, basically comedy is a kind of a mechanism to entertain while it does other things like denial, or bring up a way to interpret sitaution to rationalise it, to affirm our fantasy is OK, or as a instruction to deal with awkward moments in the very "now" time... in other words to reflects the "normal" attitudes, viewers gets to know what is the right attitude by following their favourite characters, while little do they know, different situation dealt hardly add up with the character if they were real or consistent.......
forget it..

heres a simple lesson ' you cant get a comedy without a conflict {in soceity} that is to poke fun at the [others], but in some case (mroe often these days) to poke fun at ourselves, to Look at Our culture....."
think about that

i wont bother explain anymore not because i dont like you (i dont even know you), its because its just too complicated....

"two and a half men is basically an insult to USA WHILE USA masses ARE dumb enough to like it"

So does that mean anyone in the US who likes that show is dumb? I like it but am not part of the USA masses so does that mean I am smart? haha :p



I enjoy sitcoms because they take a potentially 'normal' situation and push it into areas of the silly or ridiculous. Exaggeration, the unexpected with the expected , and a small spark of truth make for good comedy in my mind. I think being able to laugh at ourselves is a great stress reliever.



This is just my opinion - I am not a media academic, I just like sitcoms because they are a good 30-minute vacation for my mind :-).

i'm from the US so i must be dumb...

i like to watch silly sitcoms because like you, it gives my mind a break from everything in my life. watching comedy is a great way of coping with stress

If you don't enjoy it, that's too ****ing bad. What you said is full of shit. Most sitcoms have high-ratings so what does that tell you? People love to watch them. You can't stop us so **** off.
