    they're all overdone in the wacky character department...its gets old.
    trying to watch ben & kate...it has the same old over the top wacky dumb guys that say innapropriate things at the wrong times...ex. the office & all the current popular shitcoms that are in vogue. over the top gets old which is why i stick to the reality car, crab fishing, logging, hogging, bourdain, etc reality shows.

    i think the golden years of sitcoms were the 90's, cheers, freinds, seinfeld, frasier, mind of a married man, king of queens, raymond, etc...nobody over the top wacky that you couldn't relate to & pretty good writing.:dontknow:

    I think Married with Children was the last sitcom I saw. And I'm not talking about re-runs.

    I agree, everyone has to have a gay guy in it. 1.5% of the population is gay but every SitCom has one in it. Dont have the time for that bullshit.

    there is nothing about those commercials advertising that show that an actual guy with a penis would want to watch.
    what am i missing about 4 gay guys and a semi hot blonde with a fat neck?

    There is a show on MTV right now called the Inbetweeners that I find laugh out loud funny.

    It's always sunny and The League are hysterical.

    I like Parks and Rec, Always Sunny, Workaholics, and The League.

    Big Bang is a guilty pleasure as well
