122 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.

123 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

What this low. Rick and morty is amazing

124 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!

125 The Revolution Will Be Televised
126 Spin City

God I have so many sitcoms that I want up there besides "Friends" or "Seinfeld", not saying they're not good, but I prefer the humour of Frasier, Just Shoot Me, Will and Grace, and since Spin City is one of my favorites and is far from the top ten, I'm gonna choose it instead, but not without mentioning that even though I love TBBT, Two and a Half Men, 30 rock, and other actual sitcoms, these will never compare with the ones I mentioned in this comment, it's not being old-fashioned, it's giving credit to the real deal, pioneers of modern sitcoms. I really miss when sitcoms were brilliant.

Loved the show, because of its superb cast. I don't know what's it doing here on rank 75. I think it deserves much better than that. Or I guess I'm just old-fashioned. Loved the Michael J. Fox seasons though the Charlie Sheen seasons weren't bad either. I just hated to see the characters of Nikki, James, Stacey and Janelle disappear from the show. To me they were like 'part of the family'.

This show had it all...definitely is in my top 5 (the Michael J. Fox years). - schumant

127 According to Jim

I seriously hope I'm just blind to not have seen this here. One of my favorites!

This should be up higher

What? Must be higher

128 Veronica Mars

I love VMARS. I am so so delighted that the movie will be in theatres this summer! You know the fan base is still rocking when they can raise more than the desired 2mil to get the interest in filming within the first two days, with an estimated 2 months to raise the money. Veronica mars is definitely one of the most taken for granted T.V. series, three wasn't enough and I'm so happy to know many people agree!

Veronica Mars rocks! The third seson is the best so far. That's why I can't understand why only two million people are watching it every week. I really hope that people give this show a chance because they won't regret it.

Going into it's 3rd season, it's the best show you're not watching! I don't know how half the stuff in this show is allowed past the sensors. The writer Rob Thomas is a genius!

129 Fuller House Fuller House Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber are among the original "Full House" cast members who have returned to star in this spinoff, "Fuller House." D.J., now widow and a mother to three sons, finds herself back in her childhood home alongside her sister Stephanie, an aspiring musician, more.
130 Girl Meets World Girl Meets World Girl Meets World is an American coming of age television sitcom. The series made its debut on Disney Channel on June 27, 2014.

Aww my favorite show

Terrible show

131 The Game
132 Every Witch Way Every Witch Way Every Witch Way is an American telenovela-formatted teen sitcom that originally aired on Nickelodeon from January 1, 2014, to July 30, 2015. It is the American version of the Nickelodeon Latin American show Grachi.

This show is a tasty sweet piece of entertainment for families & kids of all ages, the serial format (it's a kids serial, not a soap opera, in case you get confused) is addicting to anyone who watches it, but there's more than just that, the plot is epic and the least likely in a long time to rip off other shows, you better watch it or there's nothing entertaining for you, it casts a spell and takes a hold of you, it leaves you spellbound, there's no laugh track, there's a hint of drama, and nothing is wrong with it whatsoever, it's even better than Friends as a matter of fact, Friends has a laugh track, it has a weak plot and it's not for kids, but Every Witch Way is the other way around, go watch it.

This needs to be higher on the list, it is seriously the best sitcom since the 90's of Nickelodeon, even better since there's no laugh track.

Please bring this higher on the list, it is the best comedy on Nick, you should see it for yourself when the next season comes on, daily episodes make it a serial.

"Only the mail Herb thats all I'll ever have for u" hahahaha! - fireinside96

The greatest show ever! Every show was as hilarious, if not more so, than the last one. And Jennifer or Bailey... Bailey every single time!

Without a doubt, one of the best ensemble comedies ever.

135 iCarly iCarly iCarly is an American teen sitcom that ran on Nickelodeon from September 8, 2007 until November 23, 2012. The series, created by Dan Schneider, focuses on teenager Carly Shay, who creates her own web show called iCarly with her best friends Sam Puckett and Freddie Benson.

Why is this rated number 131? It is obviously better than some of the shows which are currently ranked in the 80's-130's, some being things I, and lots of people, have never heard of, while this show is actually somewhat current and provides jokes not just for adolescences, but that adults could find amusing as well. - Quigsley

The dog ate his food what does that mean... I have no clue but iCarly is a great funny show. It has lots of comedy and the characters are hilarious!

It is actually a horrible sitcom, you wouldn't want to watch 3 hoes dancing like drug addicts, or sexual events like the boobs & the bra, and burning things down.

Who Cares About Inappropriate Content, Losers?! GET LOST, YOU T.V. SHOW RUINERS! NO ONE WANTS TO WATCH EVERY WITCH WAY!

There's a reason this show was cancelled - Thecyanryan

140 The Larry Sanders Show

#68? This show is a sitcom for intelligent adults who like great writing - there is some real crap here - Friends number 1? Yeah I guess if you're in high school or have an IQ of less than 70 it would be great. Shows like Frasier, Black Books, Blackadder, Curb and of course the seminal Seinfeld really should have top billing here

Now (1.19.15) it's number 149. And no mention in the list of "It's Gary Shandling's Show," which, along with the "Larry Sanders Show" are two of the best written comedy shows in US television history. Ah well, not everyone had the opportunity to watch Showtime and HBO shows. More's the pity--if one is never challenged by intelligent writing, the audience for such art never grows--and we end up with lists such as this one.

I agree with the first one who commented here, and now it's down at place #77? This is probably one of the best ever made sitcom. Characters like Hank Kingsley and Arthur should be put next to names like George Costanza and Cosmo Kramer.
