Top Ten Funniest TV Shows

The Top TenXW

1South Park

For one, this show is extremely funny. But what it makes it unique from other shows is that it is making fun of society's flaws. It is like George Orwell's Animal Farm. While Family Guy kind of does that, South Park takes it further by showing the reaction of the innocent (the kids). Not only is the social satire perfect, but it is rated MA, which means they are less restricted than Family guy. So they basically can go all out when making fun of society, and have a damn good laugh while doing so. Truly perfect

Thats it, the funniest show of all time, the brilliant mind of the creators on making so many funy episodes, and there eccentric episodes on which picks on such famous figures such as Saddam Hussein, Al Gore, Mel Gibson. Eric Cartman has to be the funniest cartoon character of all time, his ways on seeing things are so funny. - roblist

South Park is absolutely HILARIOUS! The creators are brilliant and they know exactly how to turn any situation into a hilarious mess. Bottom line: SOUTH PARK SHOULD BE NUMBER ONE!

Funniest show ever. Eric Cartman is the funniest character ever. Family Guy is 2nd in my opinion.

2The Simpsons

Family guy is pretty funny. But after three episodes it got boring and I stopped watching.

The Simpsons never gets boring. I've watched 14 hours straight and only stopped because it was three in the morning and I needed to sleep. All that time, and I still wanted to watch more.

It's a miracle, the humour of this show. I don't know how to describe it; be it realistic, satirical, comically relieving or just downright FUNNY.

This show is the best one out there. My 6 year-old brother started watching and my parents didn't like it. But then, after watching just one episode, my dad decided that this was too good to be hidden from our children, even if they don't get the humour.

Basically, it is a blessing for the entire family when you see "The simpsons" on the list of recordings.

Family guy sucks, as for south park, round people are weird. Yellow people are better!

I spent 5 minutes of my time writing this review because I wanted to make the world a better place. Now its your turn... WATCH THE SIMPSONS!

k first of all... family guy and south park wouldn't even exist if the simpsons never started and second of all... the simpons is the best show of all time

Family Guy should not be top, Family Guy is just funny in one genre, in a sexual way or racist way. Simpsons are hilarious in every genre. Clever and not that racist.

This show is by far the funniest television show. With it's whit and references it should definitely be number one.

3Family Guy

Okay when I searched this up I was hoping for Family Guy to be in first place. Because I knew South Park for years now but I hardly even watch any episodes at all. I mean Family Guy is the best Seth Green show ever I mean every time I watch an episode I feel like laughing as hard as possible. Also Seth Green is the best cartoonist ever! I love how Family Guy has all these random episodes and at my school me and a my friends were outside and we all were taking vote seeing what favorite does everybody like and Family Guy won also my favorite character is Stewie.

This show is the definition of fun and laughter. With its crazy stories and lovable characters it makes clear sense but shouldn't! With sex and violence combined this is a show for the all and is the best on T.V. rite now!

There is not a episode that fails to crack me up in all scenes - idolangelx13

Don't hate me, but I don't like this show.

4The Big Bang Theory

I really adore this show so much! I watch it everyday because it is so funny! Me and my friends love this show and I like the characters. They are extremely hilarious. I think it should be number 1. It has lots of different things that happen and I like how people are so entertaining. It is about a group of nerds who try to survive and carry on with their lives. They all try to get girlfriends and many other things happen in this extremely funny sitcom.
It should at least beat spongebob squarepants.

What the hell is this show doing so down here? It is so hilarious! Sheldon is so damn funny. I love the way he says BAZINGA!

TBBT is amazing. I don't think I've ever watched an episode without a chuckle escaping from my mouth, and I have deep respect for Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon.

Some of the best American humour I've seen

Seinfeld is an incredibly funny show with obvious talent from the actors. FOR GOD'S SAKE WHERE DID Michael RICHARDS (Kramer) GO?!

Sienfield is a show you could talk about the next day or week and still laugh at the situations. Most you can't do that. We have watched each episode at least 10 times.

O man, I recorded the episodes on the vhs when it was on T.V. in croatia¸1997-99. To me the best show of all time. And I was so sad when jerry said that the show is over. I think they would be the best even now days. Nobady beats them... Nobady

FRIENDS for the win! Chandler's wit, Joey's stupidity, Ross with his divorces... It seriously can't get better!

I can see every episode a thousand times, and still laugh yet again, and to be honest, it is difficult to get me to laugh, but man, the six of these nail it every damn time!

Friends combine the funny facts with the charm and the quality humour. It is not a funny show, but it also has many typologies (every actor has something special).

Also best show ever I watch as many episodes a possible everyday

7The Office (American Version)

The office is by fare the best, or at least untill Steve Carrell left, now it stinks, but the reruns are amazing to watch.

Definitely a classic. Always funny. Steve Carrel never disappoints.

so funny I watch it all the time

FACT. Office is best

8SpongeBob Squarepants

Woohoo! Patrick fan all the way!

Most kids shows are silly, but this one is so funny! Even adults can enjoy this show, fun for the whole family.

Wait... How is SPONGEBOB number nine on this list? It was good at first, but then it just got more and more pathetic as the series went along. More importantly, how is Ed, Edd, and Eddy LESS popular than THIS?!

I've been a fan for the show for 6 years.

9Impractical Jokers

This seriously has to be one of the finest reality comedy shows of modern television. What makes this show so fascinating that is that it does not seem to be scripted and it is pure humor. And the best part of the show has to be the embarrassing "PUNISHMENTS", you just cannot afford to miss them. Overall an awesome show to watch. Looking forward to many more hilarious seasons.

The other shows on this list, while most of them are admittedly hilarious, all of the have at least one or two episodes that just aren't that funny or good. With Impractical Jokers, however, EVERY SINGLE EPISODE is unbelievably funny. If you had a bad day, or you just want to laugh, then watch this damn show.

This show is so funny more people should know about it. Its one of my favorites

The funniest show ever I've never laughed so much at one show its truly awesome, everybody in it is very funny and they keep thinking of new idea's watched every episode like 5 times!

10How I Met Your Mother

Family Guy and Friends also deserves 1th place, but Barney is so hilarious!

How I met your mother should be no. 1 Barney is the funniest

A beautiful show, poignantly emotional, heartbreaking, touching, moving, hilarious, and rises above so many other comedy shows to date. Fantastic relatable characters and the actors shine in their roles!

Good show, but the funniest? Really?

11Modern Family

This show is AMAZING. If you want true comedy, you must watch this show. Everyone is hilarious and I hope this show never ends because I love it so much

This show's great but Gravity Falls is the best show on television ever, sorry but it's really true. Modern family's great but seriously.. - maddyparrot22

Come on, watch the first five episodes of any comedy, and this beats them all, by a mile. In the first episode, the Dunphy's schedule a time on a calendar to shoot their son. It's the best written comedy in history, and you fall in love with everyone on the show. The best bad guy is Claire, yet she has moments you love her. Curb you Enthusiasm and Arrested come close. But MF is the best ever.

This should be ahead of all of them especially the simpsons

All time classic, never gets old.

Never laughed out loud at a show as much as this one

That is one of my favorite shows and I'm eleven

This show is not even appropriate for eleven year olds, it has adult content.

This is For Adults Dumbass, God, Go Away!

13Whose Line is it Anyway?

Such a funny show that has humor for everyone and never fails to make people laugh. Also the fact that it's all improvised makes it funnier

Brilliant humour and scenes that you cry from laughing so hard. Genius ideas and brilliant acting that bring humour to new heights!

This show is so hilarious, GSN is bringing it back to life in the form of Drew Carey's Improv-a-Ganza. The best part, most of the original comedians from that show will be on it! Whose Line brought improvisational comedy to the mainstream audience, and no other show will do it as well. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

My parents watch this show

14Arrested Development

Its the Story of a family, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together.

How is this not at least in the top 5? Number 1 in my opinion

So the guy in the $5,300 suit is supposed to explain why AD is the funniest T.V. show of all time? COME ON!

This should be at least number 3 I mean this is the most beautiful show EVER

1530 Rock

Very fast paced 23 minutes of comedic genius. Often Goofy, always smart and great acting by Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey and the rest of the cast. The endless list of celebrity cameos is historic. Add a brilliant music score and you have it The greatest T.V. comedy of all time!

The jokes never stopped coming and the comedy was always present in every scene and every dialog

Best Show ever jenna and tracy were the best dr spaceman was hilarious the wittiest T.V. comedy of all time. Thank you tina fey!

16Looney Tunes

This should number one. South park is funny but Looney Tunes is a lot funnier. - mrcoolface

South Park is less funny and very dirty, not the funniest, Looney Tunes is the funniest. - nelsonerico6

Funny all the way

17Mr. Bean

Mr bean is my favorite actor it should exchange with family guy and south park that's why generations of children swear because of this proggrame don't take this deffensive

Rowan Atkinson's best role ever

How is this #17? This deserves to be in the top 3 - lizard302

Cause its just awesome

19The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy

Punishment is also a kind of present. - CastlevaniaFanboy128

20Monty Python's Flying Circus

When British humor was being revolutionized by Only Fools and Horses, the Monty Python troupe came along and perfected not only British humor, but also surrealist and sketch comedy. With mega-quotable lines, funny sketches, memorable characters and non-existent boredom, Monty Python should at least be in the Top 10, in my opinion. - ArchAces

"I spent four hours burying a cat"
"It wouldn't keep still" - 1029384756

Absolutely Brilliant. Pinnacle of Monty Python
