    I find my TIVO filling up with dramas and non-fiction. The only comedies I have an SP for are Fox's animated shows. What's the consensus for the best comedy going right now not named Family Guy?

    Arrested Development, without a doubt.

    Unfortunately, the end is near so you'll have to get the DVDs. It's funnier when you start from the beginning anyway.

    I also like The Office and My Name is Earl.

    But isn't there a thread about this topic already?

    It's kinda corny, but every week I literally laugh like a goofball at least a half dozen times or more watching NBCs "Most Outrageous Moments" on Friday nights. (It's like a bloopers-meets-funniest home videos-and other wacky crap kinda show--without a host. Very disposable and, for me, some genuinely funny stuff for 30 minutes at a time.)

    I have just started watching "How I Met Your Mother" and I think that is very funny.
    Scrubs is down from its heights so far this season AFAIAC, but is still prettty hilarious.

    I don't laugh quite that much, but each show is probably good for at least once...

    I'd have to recommend The colber report, good show on right after the daily show on comedy central.

    Family G....nevermind.

    How about Futurama reruns? And My Name Is Earl is always good for a few laughs.

    The Office (US)
    MNIE
    Scrubs
    Curb Your Enthusiasm
    Entourage
    Da Ali G Show (Anyone who has not watched this and subscribes to the type of humor dominating this thread do yourself a favor).
    Everybody Hates Chris
    How I Met Your Mother

    If those DVD movies do well enough to warrant a Futurama return and Scrubs & AD are still alive, we're staring at the strongest group of comedies in a long time.

    Commander In Chief.

    I easily get more laughs from how schmaltzy CIC is than I get from any so-called "comedy" on TV.
