Top Ten Most Underrated Comedy Shows


The Top Ten

1 Fawlty Towers

It only made two series. I think the BBC need to reconsider. If I had my way, it would run from then onwards.
Edit: Time is irrelevant, anonymous. This is of all time. - PositronWildhawk

You guys saying they need to bring it back do know it ended decades ago right?

This is the most awesome British comedy I have ever seen

2 Bleak Expectations

An almost unheard of BBC Radio Dickens Parody. Five series of pure comic genius! And the book's pretty funny too! - PositronWildhawk

3 Red Dwarf

I'm really going to have to get round to watching this. That man from Corrie's in it. I think that's what's putting me off. I could be missing out on a very funny comedy because of it! - Britgirl

My favourite Britcom, which is virtually forgotten these days. - PositronWildhawk

How can something so funny and so popular virtually disappear like this?!?! - PositronWildhawk

8 Psych

Psych is stop funny. I love it. Or always makes my day. What are your even doing with your like without this show?!

BEST SHOW EVER. And I know you know.

9 Frasier

Frasier's not really underrated. Its not famous like Seinfeld or Friends. But its not that much underrated. It won many prizes. Frasier's very good but the biggest problem with this show is this it repeated same themes for multiple episodes. Ham Radio was different. But the Ski Lodge and Matchmaker were pretty much same. - zxm

It was very popular, and I love it, but it's hardly spoken of these days. Why?!?! - PositronWildhawk

I like this show because of Kelsey Grammar - RickyReeves

10 Blackadder

As You Can Probably Tell, I'm A Massive Blackadder Fan - Clayttles

The show was good ESPECIALLY for the adult content, as it was one of the many reasons why the show was secretly massively appealing to all ages (as long as the audience was smart enough to really understand it). - xandermartin98

The show was good except for the adult content.

15 Studio C

They are Amazing

19 Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I don't know most of the shows in this list.

It's so sad that this show is over. It's the show that inspired me to dance. Now I'm in classes. :) :(

The dancing background music might be good, but everything else about Shake It Up was crap.
