There was a time when prime-time was all about hard hitting, serious, drama based shows. Nowadays comedy shows like Modern Family, Blackish and Brooklyn Nine-Nine dominate the prime-time slots. Comedy shows are a great way to unwind and throw away everyday worries to the back of your mind. Serious shows like Once Upon A Time, Law & Order, Prison Break, CSI are fun to watch but they can also be emotionally draining. This is why comedy shows are now moving into the prime-time slots as the viewers want a virtual escape. We have compiled a list of the best comedy shows of all times, so if you ever feel tired or glum and need a pick me up, these shows should be all you watch.
The best show of all times is undoubtedly Friends. Friends follow the lives of Monika, Rachel, Chandler, Ross, Phoebe and Joey. All six friends cannot stay without each other and spend all the time together drinking coffee at Central Perk and figuring life out as it passes by. Monica and her obsessive compulsive disorder, Phoebe and her love for music (which make you want o cut your ears off), Joey a struggling actor, Ross, who is paleontologist and madly in love with the gorgeous Rachel and Chandler who only reaction is to crack a joke. These 6 friends make life seem worthwhile. This show will always keep a smile on your face no matter how many times you’ve watched it! I should know because I’ve watched the entire series thirty two times!
How I Met Your Mother
Another amazing show based on the lines of closely knit friendship is How I Met Your Mother. Barney Stinson, Robin Scherbatsky, Lily Aldrin, Marshall Ericsson and Ted Mosby are the main characters in the series. They sit at Mclearance almost daily and try to live life to the fullest. How I Met Your Mothers is all about Ted reliving the glorious past as he tells his children all about the events that led to him meeting their mother.
