Do you have stuffy hipster friends, who adjust their coke-bottle glasses in between documentary movies and scoff at the glorious half-hour comedy? No, we don’t have any friends, either. Except TV!!! When Mom wouldn’t raise us, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia showed us how to take care of our selves. When Dad left, The Simpsons told us it would be all right. When the house burned down from Mom’s meth lab explosion, we grabbed the TV and left the rest so we wouldn’t miss Seinfeld. Except for the occasional HotPocket, television is all we need. So take a look at our Top 5 funniest TV series, and laugh your blues away!

(And, quickly, with apologies to the late-grate Phil Hartman, he was too close to a regular cast member to be considered a guest start in our book. The same goes for Marcia Wallace, Russi Taylor, and Doris Grau, great as they all are.)

Conclusion

These shows are always good for an escape from your unbearable existence. And, trust us, you need it. With a life as pathetic as yours, you’ll need these shows just to get out of bed in the afternoon. But in case you need more than these, we decided to hook you up with a few honorable mentions, which also shouldn’t be missed. Especially by someone with so little going on.

The Office — Though The Office without Michael is like Simpsons without Homer, the glory days of this show are unrivalled in the mocumentary field.

Dick Van Dyke — As Rob Petrie, Van Dyke captured his audience’s attention with his wacky physical comedy and top-notch writing.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia — “Seinfeld on crack?” Yes, please!

30 Rock — Because the internet wouldn’t be complete without a Lemon party!
