101 Lizzie McGuire Lizzie McGuire Elizabeth Brooke McGuire, famously known as Lizzie, is the main character in the show. She is portrayed as a caring, rational, and cooperative person, although her animated alter-ego displays her true feelings from time to time.

This show is awesome, still one of my favorites.

103 The Wonder Years The Wonder Years The Wonder Years is an American television comedy-drama created by Neal Marlens and Carol Black. It ran on ABC from 1988 until 1993. The pilot aired on January 31, 1988, following ABC's coverage of Super Bowl XXII.

How do you not like a tale of adolescence in a time when America was modernizing itself and everyone else lost in the fray trying to find their way. This show had everything from sibling rivalry to womens rights to the legacy you leave the future generations. It was also able to have a little something for everyone and incorporated humor into almost every show.

This must be among the top 10. There were scenes that made me cry and there were some that made me so full of boiling emotions. The way kevin climbed up cooper's house to say "I love you" and the expressions she had when she said it too was once in a life time feeling. I adore this show and its got be among the top 10.

This should have gotten a much much higher rating.. If you ask me, it should have been number 1.

This has the complete package, humor, love, emotions. On top of that, I am sure, most of us can relate to the show.
What Kevin goes through in the show is stuff, a lot of us went through as well as children : crushes, silliness, good and bad teachers and what not.

104 The Honeymooners

This list is not an all time list. the modern shows are weighted way too much. Honeymooners is easily a top 10 show of all time. Its like saying Dimaggio isn't an all time great baseball player.

It's been generations since this show aired and it's still roll on the laughing funny!

The Honeymooners was all about it's charcters and their interractions it had to be it was shot on a stage in front of a live audience! Jackie Gleason was as large as life and brought his best to every episode. This show deserves to be in the top ten of all time greatest comedies!

105 Cougar Town

One of (if not) the best shows of the 2010's - JohnFedorchak

106 The Bernie Mac Show

R.I.P. to Bernie Mac, One of the Greatest Comedians of all times, and a Real Ass N****. His comedy is classic and he has the swag of an O.G. chicago Pimp. His show defines the typical middle class black family, with a twist of comedy like no other.

107 Rising Damp

Rising damp was hilarious should be in the top 15

108 Growing Pains

Grew up with this show. Bought the dvd today.

Can't understand why this wasn't on the list till now. Great ABC show from the 80s. - br01

109 Steptoe and Son

Real actors portraying the desperation of the younger man to escape his situation and the equal desperation of the older man to keep his son at home.

That how Sanford and. Son came about

110 I'm Alan Partridge

Lead the way in the genre of nail biting comedy that now every comedy sitcom follows

111 Flight of the Conchords
112 Sanford and Son

R you people out of your mind! This is by far the funniest ever

This show is definitely top five. It paved the way for about 90% of the shows on this list.

Hilarious, way ahead of it's time.

Best show of my childhood. Anybody doesn't think it is a top 20 show, their a big dummy.

113 The Middle The Middle

So funny and relateable. Loads better than Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother. It doesn't have shaky camera movement like Modern Family. And you know when to laugh unlike most sitcoms when they has an audience or canned laughter to let you know "you must laugh now". Plus the show has a lot of emotional scenes as well as funny moments. The show is too underrated. Although to be honest, it's better than being highly overrated like Modern Family.

Totally realistic, and FUNNY! If you haven't watched it, you should. You will fall in love with it.

It's really addicting to watch, even if the humor has fallen off a little as the kids get older.

114 Spaced

Why is Spaced so low on here? Sure, there are higher ones on here that I find hilarious (Father Ted, IT Crowd, Inbetweeners, Red Dwarf etc), but Spaced is so clever and funny that it should be way, way higher on here. I mean, its one of the earliest things to feature Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Look where they are now.

Simply the funniest thing ever committed to video tape...

I could watch Spaced each and every day. In fact, most days I do on the hour train journey to work.

Just the best!

The best show of all time in my opinion. Characters are fantastic, all the episodes are amazing and you'll come away quoting all the best bits, guaranteed!

95th? For shame people, you all suck

115 Night Court

Characters were incredible, and how can you forget about district attorney Dan Fielding and opposing character, Judge Harry T. Stone.

116 King of the Hill King of the Hill King of the Hill is an American animated sitcom created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels that ran from January 12, 1997 to May 6, 2010 on Fox.

Never watched it, I know its an American comedy but it might not be very popular/known in Britain.

THE BEST SHOW EVER- consistent laughs every episode and one of the few shows that give regular life lessons, I'm upset its 126 that's rediculous

This show is a beast, but they need to make new episodes like forreal other then that its alright

117 Keeping Up Appearances

How is this not in the top 5 its a great sitcom its hilarious and its one of the only British sitcoms still played completely better than the other British challengers Dads Army and the others which bore me - 99sjohnson

One of the best British sitcoms. - holyravioli

This is a brilliant comedy..It shouldn't be at 97..

Ha ha ha... Am I the only person who fimds this funny? It's #1 on the top ten best Britcoms list!

118 The Young Ones

Whenever someone mentions this show, it makes me smile. Every moment is hilarious. Even comparing it to Big Bang Theory and Friends, it out weighs them all!

The Peoples Poet will live forever thanks to this simply extraordinary hilarious British comedy. One of the funniest shows of all time.

119 Coupling

For me, this trumps Friends and How I Met Your Mother and the like. Funnier and so accurate despite the hyperboles. Wonderful actors too.

Definitely the best sitcom I've ever seen (the UK version, of course). It really has to be in the top ten!

The best sitcom ever (the UK version of cource). It should definitely be in the Top 10!
