The 65 Best TV Comedies of All Time According to IndieWire (2022 Update)

"There are the clever shows, the witty and the dry, the outrageous and the provocative, the ones that lean on your knowledge of all those others while delivering references with a wink and a nod. So, in an effort to gather that unpredictable cross-section of over a half-century of TV comedies, we've tried to form our picks for the 65 greatest. We've tried our best to combat recency bias, while acknowledging that the explosion in quality TV of late has made it impossible to ignore that some all-time work is still unfolding in front of our eyes. Those developments also extend into the world beyond the fictional ones, where once-vaunted series have become irreparably tainted by the conduct of their stars and creators. At this point in TV history, 65 might be a representative sum, but it's far from comprehensive. Still, it's worth saluting the following shows, that range from the spectacular to the magnificent." - indiewire.com
