2 Seinfeld Seinfeld Four single friends -- comic Jerry Seinfeld, bungling George Costanza, frustrated working gal Elaine Benes and eccentric neighbor Cosmo Kramer -- deal with the absurdities of everyday life in New York City.

All four of these characters are hilarious. Friends only has 4 (Monica and Phoebe are not funny) - AnimeSportsFan619

Jason is the best character in the history of sitcoms.

The best characters and storylines. I can relate to seinfeld

3 That 70's Show
4 The Office The Office The Office is an American television comedy series that aired on NBC from March 24, 2005 to May 16, 2013.

5 The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro, and also some wasted guest stars from time to time.

If I counted how many time I laughed while watching this show it will be a few thousand times... even thinking about sheldon or howard makes me laugh a little... but seriously #11? that's nowhere near what its true rating must be... in my opinion it must be #1 but I'm not gonna challenge it because people like what they like... and by the way FRIENDS is #2 for me... again my opinion

! It's actually spooky how a show can make you laugh so hard! Beats Friends anyday. Should be #1! (by the way I laughed more in the titanic film than in How I Met Your Mother- I laughed once)

The big bang theory should be #1 I mean what TVs show can top rock, paper, sissors, lizards, spock

For sharp adult humor, nothing is better. This show fit Charlie Sheen perfectly and it’s a shame it ended as it did. All of it’s characters were perfect for the roles, and I’ve not seen one bad episode.

Its not the best sitcom but it is by far the funniest one.
Friends is better than TAHM but it is way less funny than TAHM
