17 Hilarious TV Comedies That Will Make You Seriously LOL

After a long day on the job, there's nothing quite like settling into the couch and taking it easy. And our favorite medicine is laughter. These shows will have your neighbors begging to join in on the fun. They're wildly addicting and perfect for any occasion. That's why we love them!

1. The Big Bang Theory

What a zany, brainy, lovable crew. Sheldon, Howard, Raj and Leonard are scientists who are a little more than socially awkward. Along with Penny, Bernadette and Amy, this group can write equations and make faux pas like nobody's business.

2. Seinfeld

It's a show about nothing, or so Jerry Seinfeld says. But really, it's a show about funny people making fools of themselves in mundane situations.

3. Curb Your Enthusiasm

Larry David isn't shy. He'll tell you everything he's thinking, even if it ends up in a fist fight, a chase scene, or a cursing fit. What's highly frustrating to Larry is hilarious to anyone who watches him.

4. Saturday Night Live

This show has been on for decades, and features celebrities, musical acts, and some of the most bizarre skits you can imagine.

5. Louie

Some of you might know Louis CK for his stand-up. But we also love him for his tender acting, and the pretty ridiculous scenarios in which he finds himself.

6. Bojack Horseman

Who doesn't love a has-been movie star who's also an animated half-man, half-horse? Bojack touches dark subjects with a brutally funny caress.

7. The Simpsons

Bart, Lisa, Homer, Marge and Maggie make up this delightful yellow family. The show is teeming with rich characters, conflicting personalities, and a panache that says, "We know we're funny, now watch us."

8. Two and a Half Men

We started with a hilarious Charlie Sheen, then Ashton Kutcher took over as a worthy replacement. A Chuck Lorre gem, this series will be sure to keep you laughing. Check out these wild guys!

9. Parks and Recreation

Funny lady Amy Poehler stars in this comedy about a parks department in the fictional Pawnee, Indiana. Who knew government departments could be so funny?

10. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

This show should be retitled, It's Always Funny in Philadelphia. Follow the ridiculous "Gang" -- the bar owners of the Irish Bar, Paddy's Pub in South Philly. They'll be happy to have you along for the ride.

11. Broad City

Abbi and Ilana are just about the wildest girls in New York City. They have more than a few issues to take care of as they navigate the world of hipsters, rat-infested apartments, co-op groceries, and the DMV.

12. Archer

Sterling Archer is taking cartoons to a new dimension. Not for kids or the faint of heart. Follow these former spies turned private investigators on their wild journey solving crime, or perpetrating their own.

13. Freaks and Geeks

This show promises just that. It's a dive into all the highs and lows of high school. Dungeons and Dragons, mathletics, smoking under the bleachers, and more. A great place to see early James Franco and Seth Rogan.

14. Full House

When you're looking for classic, innocent comedy, you can't go wrong with this. Complete with laugh track and aww track, this one spells it all out for you. It's worth it just for Michelle Tanner.

15. I Love Lucy

This is basically where comedy began. Lucille Ball was a master at faces, voices, and physical comedy. Whether stomping grapes to make wine, getting drunk on Vitameatavegamin, or being too slow for the chocolate conveyor belt, Lucy is one lovable lady who will be sure to win your heart. Just ask Ricky.

16. 30 Rock

Amy Poehler's partner in comedy, Tina Fey, takes on her own show. The all-star cast including Tracy Morgan and Alec Baldwin (also SNL veterans) will delight you with their antics.

17. New Girl

Zooey Deschanel is the quirkiest roommate in town. But all's well that ends well in this hilarious sitcom.


These comedies are perfect for any time you need a laugh (or if you're procrastinating an important project). We hope you enjoy!
