23 Great Comedy Series That Not Enough People Talk About

When you think of great sitcoms, you’re probably going to think of series like The Mary Tyler Moore Show or Will & Grace. Or maybe recency bias will result in Veep or Abbott Elementary popping into your head. They’re all shows with tons of critical acclaim and a bounty of Emmys under their belt. But what about the unsung heroes? 

To that end, redditor BlackSpinedPlinketto recently asked r/Television “What’s a comedy show that no one talks about, but was actually really good?” 

Some of these series suffer from living in the shadows of similar shows, and only get brought up as evidence of how they’d never live up to a juggernaut like Modern Family. Others debuted just before the streaming era and are a blindspot to an entire generation. There are even series on this list with Emmy nominations and Peabody Awards, and yet, you still rarely hear people talking about them.
