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

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!

2 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2018, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer more.

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

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.

The simpssons are an really very funny. this is the most funnyest T.V. show ever funnier as south park

3 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!

One of my favorite TVous show EVER! Leonard and Howard are my favorites!

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.

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.

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

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 no show that can me make laugh so hard I can't breathe, in every single episode. If you enjoy comedy, this is a must!

5 Friends Friends F•R•I•E•N•D•S 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.

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).

Very intelligently made show with great casting and story

6 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

7 Impractical 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

Very funny show

8 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.

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

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.

Who doesn't like this show. Come on I've already finished the series 4 times now and I still quote random lines to random people and I STILL think this show is so funny. The U.K version did start the U.S version too, but The U.S version is better. And anyways the U.S version doesn't talk about inflatable penises and crap.

SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 18 years, and is beginning its 11th season. The show more.

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

Woohoo! Patrick fan all the way!

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?!

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

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!

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

Blood awesome show.

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

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..

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.

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!

Way funnier than friends

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

Funny all the way

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.

29 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.

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

31 It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

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.

This show is hilarious and I can't believe it's not even on the list. Come on people

Five star show. Anyone who dosn't like it is a savage idiot! It hasn't even begun to peak, and when it does, everyone will feel it. It is the Golden God of T.V..

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!

This show is awesome I really love it and I recommend people to watch this funny show. The Chinese guy from the hangover is there and he is really funny

How did this end up all the way down here? Community is the greatest show ever! The comedy combined with the wit they put behind each carefully created line for each character is beyond phenomenal.
It's streets ahead.

The best modern sitcom being made, shows that television still has hope!

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.

40 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.

If You Want to Watch a Show Where People are High or Drugs, Go watch The Problem Solverz.

Wow, you must have a limited imagination if you think a goldfish with legs can only be thought up by someone on drugs.

This show needs to be higher in the list! Should be number 1!

This show is just a ridiculous piece of trash that I have ever seen. A blue cat with his goldfish that has legs and his father and sister are some sort of pink rabbits

This guy must have been HIGH or ON DRUGS whoever created this.

What?! My favorite T.V. show! Its really entertaining, it shouldve been the first place. plus its really funny, cringey, and somehow romantic
