Are there any current sitcoms that you especially like?

I have become a fan of The Neighbors on ABC starring Jami Gertz.  It is very funny and quite different from anything else I have seen lately.  Does anyone else watch it and are there any other current sitcoms that you enjoy?

Re: Are there any current sitcoms that you especially like?

Let's see....

 

Big Bang - probably my favorite right now!

The Middle

Modern Family

The Neighbors (my husband does not get this show at all!)

Suburgatory

Castle - yes, I consider this a comedy/drama

I watch:

 

Big Bang Theory

Two and a Half Men

Modern Family

The Office

Hot in Cleveland

 

Nothing new, though...

Re: Are there any current sitcoms that you especially like?

I'll watch Hot in Cleavland, but never rush to do so.  I'm not a hug fan of most sitcoms, especially new ones.  I tried watching New Girl and Happy Endings, but never got that much into them.

 

I find myself prefering older sitcoms.  I recently started watching Maude, which I had never seen before, and I love it.  I also watch The Jeffersons, Amen, Threes Company, Desinging Women, The Golden Girls, The Nanny, and Gilligan's Island, when I find them on TV.

 

Kind of sad really, I"m only 36, but I prefer olders shows.

I agree that Big Bang Theory is one of the better sitcoms on today.  Other than The Neighbors, I also like The Middle and Suburgatory.  I have still been watching The Office, but am glad this is its last season.  I'm not sure if the writers have just ran out of material or what, but it has really gone downhill. 

 

As far as the old sitcoms, I love them too and some of them can't be beat.  I find that the case with movies as well.

I usually catch Hot in Cleveland on On Demand, although sometimes I watch it while it's on.  Great cast!  Since you like The Nanny, do you ever watch Happily Divorced?  I've seen a few, but don't watch it regularly.  I tried Happy Endings, too, and it's ok, but I'm not crazy about it.  Too much of a Friends retread.

 

Of course, old sitcoms are great!  I couldn't even begin listing all the ones I have watched over the years.  In reruns, it depends on what the channels are showing at the moment at convenient times.  Right now I'd say I most often manage to catch Everybody Loves Raymond, and That 70's Show (I love that one!), and the occasional Facts of Life.

I've tried to watch Happily Divorced but just can't seem to get into that much.  I'm not sure why, but I guess I'm just not a sitcom fan, at least not of what's out today.

Big Bang and Modern Family!

 

It's time for How I Met Your Mother to die a merciful death.  Several seasons were excellent, but then they began throwing in things like Marshall's father's death and having babies, and kinda spoiled everything.

Totally agree!  And don't forget about all that Robin Sparkles nonsense!

Hear, hear!  It was funny the first time; after that, not so much!

I just discovered The Big Bang Theory this year, and I'm loving it!  Hope Bob Newhart gets nominated and wins for being "Professor Proton"!

I've also started catching up with Arrested Development on Netflix, which is amazing.

Portlandia is also worthwhile for writing, etc.

Glad you are enjoying it.  The reruns are shown back-to-back often on TBS, so that's a good way to catch up on prior seasons.

I don't have Netflix, so I haven't seen the new season, but all of the previous seasons were great! I also heard they would like to do a movie.
