Top Ten Funniest TV Shows

The Top Ten

1 South Park South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

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

Funniest Show Ever

There is nothing funny about edginess! - shiphater

This list is actually right unlike other lists I've seen.

2 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2019, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer more.

The first few seasons are AMAZINGLY AMAZING. Great stories, satire, deep characters, yellow people. Unfortunately it has devolved into a long, slow, slog of a show with 1d characters, lackluster writing, too many celebrity voice stars, and a suck up to pop culture. It's time has long since past. Don't die this embarrassingly, go now before things get worse.

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 ...more


Been watching the Simpsons since I was a baby. Favorite show hands down. my favorite character is definitely bart. Best character.

3 SpongeBob Squarepants SpongeBob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 12th season. more.

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

This show is funny, some parts I found really funny, like, is this the krusty krab? no! This is patrick! And the sky had a baby from my cereal box

Funny as hell

Woohoo! Patrick fan all the way!

4 Family Guy Family Guy Family Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie more.

It's so lame! I'm so sick the the stupid Meg hating "GAG! " and It's so violent I only watched the clips on youtube to see how violent and lame it is. Peter is the worst character because he abuses his own children like their his "MAIDS! " This show is one of the worst shows in the world!

Hit or miss, depending on the episode.

This crap is not funny, it's extremely offensive! Even South Park doesn't take their jokes that far (and it's a way better show). Get this out of the top 10s!

This is a very bad show it for adults like 30 and up

5 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.

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.

Seinfeld got beat by the Big Bang theory? Are you kidding me?

Hands down best comedy show since Jackie Gleson and the honeymooners. If Kramer doesn't get you laughing hysterically you not my kinda person

6 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.

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.

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.

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!

This show totally deserves the top 3 positions in this countdown. People now a days have absolutely no sense of humor. Gotta love Sheldon.

7 Impractical Jokers Impractical Jokers Impractical Jokers is an American hidden camera reality series that premiered on TruTV on December 15, 2011, and is produced by NorthSouth Productions.

This show deserves number 1 - NeroToolman

I love the fast food restaurant pranks

Haha this is probably the funniest show. Cracks me up every time and I love it

Greatest. Show. Ever.

8 Friends Friends Friends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which originally aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons. It now airs on Nick at Nite. more.

OKAY FIRST OF ALL... why isn't it at LEAST in the top 5's?! And it's below family guy?! What the hell

I've never laughed so hard at some of the episodes! - kaisietoo

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!

9 The Office (American Version) The Office (American Version) The Office is an American television comedy series that aired on NBC from March 24, 2005 to May 16, 2013.

The Office is totally the best show. It is so funny. Dwight is the best!

Then started the fire


Every episode is comedy gold! Also, if you like this you should look into EnterTheDojoShow. - RubyParagon

10 Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry Tom and Jerry is an American animated series of short films created in 1940, by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

I love THIS SHOW! P.S. Especially when Tom captures Jerry, but sadly, he always escapes. I guess that's so that the show could go on.

Why isn't this #1?
By the way, Jerry getting hurt IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL! Tom getting hurt is ALWAYS FUNNY! - Svampbob164

I love it when Jerry gets hurt and it's really funny!

Things get so funny

Are we going to talk about
C H U N G U S?
Please, do it for me! And maybe the kiddos might like it too.

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

¿Cómo es esto no número uno?

Sorry I speak Spanish when I'm angry but how is this not number one?

12 Arrested Development Arrested Development Arrested Development is an American television sitcom created by Mitchell Hurwitz, which originally aired on Fox for three seasons from November 2, 2003, to February 10, 2006. A fourth season of 15 episodes was released on Netflix on May 26, 2013. The show follows the fictitious Bluth family, a formerly more.

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

Way funnier than friends

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!

13 Saturday Night Live Saturday Night Live Saturday Night Live is an American late-night live television variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol.

I'm absolutely in love with the earlier seasons of the show (1975-1980). It really set the tone for American satire on T.V. and it launched the careers of so many incredible people like Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and many more. To this day, it's still more relevant than ever and the main source of satire in America. Sure, the most recent seasons can't compete to the first ones (at least in my opinion) but the show is still standing.

All time classic, never gets old.

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.

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

14 Drake & Josh Drake & Josh Drake & Josh is an American television sitcom created by Dan Schneider for Nickelodeon. The series follows the lives of two teenage boys with opposite personalities, Drake Parker (Drake Bell) and Josh Nichols (Josh Peck), who become stepbrothers.

It's quite a funny show. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

This is The Best Show Ever! Who Cares About Laugh Tracks? No One! So Shut Up!

I hate Megan.

15 Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life Rocko's Modern Life is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray for Nickelodeon. The series centers on the surreal life of an anthropomorphic Australian-immigrant wallaby named Rocko as well as his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful more.

Well, of course! - Rocko

Whoever plays Sparky is the greatest actor of all time

Cause its just awesome

16 Liv and Maddie Liv and Maddie Liv and Maddie is a live-action Disney Channel sitcom that started on July 19, 2013, and ended on March 24, 2017.

The series revolves around three preteen boys: Ed, Edd "Double D," and Eddy—collectively known as "the Eds"—who live in a suburban more.

C is for cash and that's fine with eddy, America's funniest eds are right back on Cartoon Network

I can't stop laughing at what this trio does.

This Is The Funniest Show Ever No Show Is Funnier Than Ed Edd & Eddy - MEGAMANZEROSTRIDER

I Bit Lackish.

19 Modern Family Modern Family Modern Family is an American television mockumentary family sitcom that premiered on ABC on September 23, 2009, which follows the lives of Jay Pritchett and his family, all of whom live in suburban Los Angeles.

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 should be no. 1 and number 2 is The Big Bang Theory.

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

Never has a bad episode or relies on predictable jokes

Should not be 12

20 Monty Python's Flying Circus

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

Probably 30% of every laugh I’ve had in my life, has been because of Monty Pythons Flying Circus. Hahaaahahaahajahahaahahaa

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Absolutely Brilliant. Pinnacle of Monty Python

21 The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy (also known as Billy & Mandy) is an American animated television series created by Maxwell Atoms for Cartoon Network, and is the 14th of the network's Cartoon Cartoons (albeit namely when it was part of Grim & Evil; the show is considered separate from Cartoon Cartoons more.

23 30 Rock 30 Rock 30 Rock is an American satirical television sitcom created by Tina Fey that ran on NBC from October 11, 2006, to January 31, 2013. The series, loosely based on Fey's experiences as head writer for Saturday Night Live, takes place behind the scenes of a fictional live sketch comedy show depicted as airing more.

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!

It honestly should probably be top 5. and definitely above the current top 3 which are all terrible.

24 Sydney to the Max
25 Mr. Bean Mr. Bean The title character, played by Rowan Atkinson, is a childish buffoon who brings various unusual schemes and contrivances to everyday tasks. He lives alone at the address of Flat 2, 12 Arbour Road, Highbury, and is almost always seen in his trademark tweed jacket and a skinny red tie. He also usually more.

Mr. Bean is a legend.

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

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

26 It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is an American sitcom that premiered on FX on August 4, 2005, and moved to FXX beginning with the ninth season in 2013. It was created by Rob McElhenney, who developed it with Glenn Howerton.

How is tbbt beating this

How is this show not at the top?

Always sunny in philadelphia should be at the top. The show is way funnier than the simpsons or family guy because it just is in a way and Dennis is my favorite because he is a sociopathic, narcissist and that is just hilarious! Like he always thinks he is superior even though he isn't or that everyone is against him though they aren't.

Why is it this far down?! It's hilarious! Charlie's, awkward threats along with franks dishonest and lowdown workings are what make it awesome.

27 Futurama Futurama Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

Both clever, humorous and emotional. How could this amazing show not be the best? - DesL42

Underrated cartoon comedy, with characters that are revolutionary in story and humour! A true gem!

One of my favorite animated shows so funny would be cool if that would become the future

Such a shame it has ended - RickyReeves

28 Teen Titans Go

This Show is So Stupid!

Yes. I agree with you. This show is so stupid. Love Hannah Weaver.

Why is this even here? - DaWyteNight

It is good, but wizards of waverly is better

I agree beyond the galaxy and back, Every Witch Way is FAR better than Sam & Cat and Wizards of Waverly Place combined, There's no laugh track like the two and there's no bathroom humor or bras. - nelsonerica

One more show rivaled those two, Every Witch Way.

I word to describe Sam and Cat, HILARIOUS!

This show turns you into a mentally ill pervert, it was about nothing but "babysitting" idiots, there was nothing funny, glad it got cancelled.

The best comedian has the best show ever. There I said it, best show ever, and its only at 21 on this list. Sure, it's pretty much the soup, but it's way funnier and it involves web videos.

YESH! TOSH.0 ISH ON HERE! Why it's not first? I have no clue.

This show is very funny. I don't know why it's so low down here

The best green screen and clip show of all time.

It is so funny you'll be in the hospital all day saying my laugh box is full

I watch this every once in a while.

It has the laugh out loud factor

It's just a lame show that has no interesting style, but laugh tracks & random subjects, where's the action?

It is tots halare!

You think it's hilarious, it's the opposite, laugh tracks block out what's going on & there sexism in it too.

43 The Inbetweeners

How is this not in the top ten? I'm assuming this is the British version (which is far better than the American one), It is literally one of the most hilarious shows to ever grace our screens and I was very sad when it ended.P.S. this show even managed to make my mother laugh, and she practically never laughs at anything.

This is literally the funniest T.V. show ever. destroys all american shows

Hilarious. Shame they're not making another.

44 Parks and Recreation Parks and Recreation Parks and Recreation, informally known as Parks and Rec, is an American political comedy television sitcom starring Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope, a perky, mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks Department of Pawnee, a fictional town in Indiana.

This is the best show EVER! Why is it so low? (43 right now) April Ludgate is the best character in any show I have watched and it will always stay that way.

It's a shame this is so low. This show is hilarious.

Amazing show! Leslie and Ron's characters compliment each other in an amazingly hilarious way

It's very upsetting that no one knows about the wonders of Ron Swanson and the crew. This show is truly the best, so if someone sees this, please either vote for parks and rec or watch it because it'll get cancelled if you don't! Spread the word! - Songsta41

45 Two and a Half Men Two and a Half Men Two and a Half Men is an American television sitcom that began broadcast on CBS on September 22, 2003, and ended on February 19, 2015 after twelve seasons.

The episodes between 2003-2009 are hilarious. Lowbrow jokes mixed with some pretty clever ones. But after 2009, the show started declining.

Two and a half men has lost some of it's charm, but what show hasn't after being on for so many year, but it's still by far one of the funniest shows should be top 10

I love this show so much! How can it be 21?!?! It is hilarious!

The funniest and 2cool..

48 American Dad American Dad American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

I do not know why family guy is higher because that show only relies on potty humor while American dad is more clever and situational humor.
