Top Ten Funniest TV Shows
Even if South Park went downhill ever since season 19, this still remains one of my favourite television programs of all time. It's hilarious, clever, funny and knows how to do gross out adult humour done right. The characters are funny and the humour is satirical comedy gold.
South Park is most definitely the wittiest show to have come from the past millennium. It is basically the perfect balance of sleaze, social satire, politics, shock value interwound with purpose, and a surprisingly heart-warming charm for a show whose reputation was basically built on political incorrectness and anarchism. It even features pretty interesting characters. My favorite characters are Cartman, Kyle, Butters, Kenny, Randy Marsh, Mr. Garrison, and Mr. Mackey. They all are carved with big and dynamic personalities and make the show worth watching.
All in all, this is a show you have to watch if you love to laugh at something funny. You are going to die of laughter. Even the non-satirical episodes are pretty damn hilarious. Seasons 4-19 are gold. (Seasons 1-3 and 20 are okay meaning a bit sub par considering the high standards of this show).
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.
Please remove Family Guy. South Park takes the cake. Never has a television show been able to make me laugh so hard so often. South Park is also just an incredible show in general. Can't wait for the next season!
Homer Simpson made me love The Simpsons because he is just so funny. This show is funny, clever, witty and enjoyable to watch. Sure it became more stale over time but it's still a funny and iconic classic.
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
Simpsons is super funny and it even makes me laugh so hard I feel like my head is going to fall off.I think it is better than all the other shows
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.
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?!
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
I love Patrick because he's so adorable, cute, funny, dumb but smart when he wants to be, and just has a good spirit.
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.
Best show ever!How could you not like the simpsons.The only problem is that some characters look pretty weird and it is not fully a kids show even though I watch it
Many people say this show takes jokes way too far or it’s too offensive, but if you are offended by it, don’t watch it! This is the most hilarious cartoon I’ve ever seen, hands down (with South Park being second, Looney Tunes being third, Gravity Falls being fourth and The Simpsons being fifth). Even though this show has run for 18 seasons, it still makes me laugh as hard as ever, with Impractical Jokers the only show that cracks me up 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!
Oh man, I recorded the episodes on the VHS when it was on T.V. in Croatia, 1997-99. To me, this is 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 nowadays. Nobody beats them... Nobody.
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.
Hands down best comedy show since Jackie Gleson and the honeymooners. If Kramer doesn't get you laughing hysterically you not my kinda person
Seinfeld got beat by the Big Bang theory? Are you kidding me?
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.
I only saw TWO episodes, but it was the funniest thing I've ever watched! I don't really have much time to watch it know that school has started, but I will start watching all of them on Netflix soon.
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.
This show totally deserves the top 3 positions in this countdown. People now a days have absolutely no sense of humor. Gotta love Sheldon.
Although it is very overrated and overhyped, it's a pretty hilarious show. Literally every episode has me laughing hysterically.
The office is a perfect mix of comedy, romance, story, and friendship. But of course, where Steve Carrel is involved, the most important is comedy.
Really funny. Michael trying to be funny is just hilarious, Jim pranking Dwight is always funny, the whole show is amazing.
Has more than comedy, and some great laughs. Top 5 funniest shows ever and same can be applied to top 5 shows in general
I can't believe this is not #1 everything is funny about this show and I emphasize "everything"! What makes this stand out from all other shows on T.V. is how "Genuinely Funny" it is, they are not faking their laughs "AKA Sal". Nothing will "Ever" beat this show in my opinion, because even when I'm having really bad day, this show "Always" finds a way to get me to laugh and feel better, in the moment when I watch this show is completely forget why my day was bad. That's why this show can not and will not be ever beat In my opinion of course. I will forever be a huge fan of this show.
Guys, this has to be THE funniest show of all time. There is no show that I recommend to my friends more than this one. It's unbelievably funny. If you like to laugh your *ss off for 20-30 minutes straight, then this is the show for you. Every single episode is hilarious, there aren't any unfunny episodes like the other shows on this list. No. Every single one is hysterical. The interesting part is that this show is unscripted. It's just pure genuine laughs and dialogue from four lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other :) If you haven't seen this show then you're missing out!
This should be at the top this is probably the best T.V.. Show out there who made this list? The person was a genius for putting impractical jokers on the list but also obviously has bad brain damage for not putting this as the first one! Sorry but it's true you guys don't have to agree but I have my opinions and if you got something negative to say about it than talk to the hand holding up the middle finger! I'm just kidding I'm a prankster ok peace out!
This show is just SO funny. I mean. Who wouldn't like to see four friends competing to embarrass each other? This should be number one. I have never laughed harder at any other show in my LIFE. The funniest parts are where Joe keeps shouting at some imaginary guy named Larry. Especially the one where Joe was in a grocery store and ran around the whole store looking for Larrt and asking for the price for "asparagi." And then Joe was all "Oh wait he's off on Thursdays."
I LOVE Friends! Every episode makes me laugh and/or cry. Even 23 years later, Friends is a classic! So, so funny and so, so, good. The characters are good people without being obnoxious and the characters are hilarious without being over the top. It has a perfect blend of comedy and tenderness that makes it perfect!
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).
Chandler bing makes this show worthy of number 1 place. Only american sitcom that is actually funny, but that may just be cause I'm Aussie. Friends for the win!
Tom and Jerry is a classic it was funny when I was 3 it's still funny now. It's called timeless comedy. It never gets old and is a old school and relevant classic.
Before I saw SpongeBob, this was the eggnog of animation for me as an kid, I would drink it all the time & it never gets old, It's an old school & relevant classic. SpongeBob (Season 1-3) was like an field trip to me.
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.
Tom a Jerry is so funny even though the cat is the only one to ever get hurt.
Comedy Genius. This show has the most sociopathic characters in all of T.V. and uses them to the advantage of the plot. It is so wonderfully written and perfectly paced. Every episode, I leave laughing at the immorality of the Gang. The fact that Sunny is so low proves it's cult status.
P.S. The Big Bang Theory is so high up because what type of people do you think use this website?
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.
the chemistry and tension between the characters along with the amazing jokes and gags that don't seem out of place at all or forced, because of the way the characters were made.
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.
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.
I was exposed to the show at a young age and I didn't get it but now as I'm older it's one of - if not the funniest shows on T.V..
Ah, this. One show for everyone ten and up that's actually good.
Never laughed out loud at a show as much as this one
The most funniest classic of all time. Still love Looney Tunes. The characters are just so hilarious and witty, especially Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny.
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.
I like it. Not as great as Tom & Jerry to me.
Absolutely hilarious, Simpsons is my favorite show, but this the funniest show. So many jokes that go over your head the first time, and rewatching you catch a new one every time. Simply amazing
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!
It's the Story of a family, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together.
This should be at least number 3 I mean this is the most beautiful show EVER
This is basically The Simpsons set in Space. One of my favourite cartoons of all time. Its kind of funny at times but I mostly find it enjoyable.
Like the Simpsons, I love the humor but I also like the science material that was adapted from that science episode with Homer
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
Meme-able & memorable characters, I really dig the stories and humor. I also loved watching this on Nick, after SpongeBob.
Whoever plays Sparky is the greatest actor of all time
Cause its just awesome
Well, of course!
I remember watching this in my childhood days. It was a very funny TV show and a truly iconic classic. Mr. Bean's antic's always make me chuckle.
Even today in my worst days only Mr. Bean can make me still laugh like crazy, deserves top 5 at least
Never disappoints and is just as funny as Drake and Josh, Sam and Cat, Wendell and Vinne
I had I helper treacher named Mr. Bean last year in 5 th grade best teacher ever.
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 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..
This is the best show on the entire plants! South Park does not deserve to be number 1!
Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!
Probably 30% of every laugh I’ve had in my life, has been because of Monty Pythons Flying Circus. Hahaaahahaahajahahaahahaa
"I spent four hours burying a cat"
"It wouldn't keep still"
Absolutely Brilliant. Pinnacle of Monty Python
Scary children show
I don’t know why I said I like this show, it’s not that funny.
This is The Best Show Ever! Who Cares About Laugh Tracks? No One! So Shut Up!
It's quite a funny show.
I hate Megan.
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!
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!
The jokes never stopped coming and the comedy was always present in every scene and every dialog
It honestly should probably be top 5. and definitely above the current top 3 which are all terrible.
