Best Comedy TV Show: Official Nominees

We are down to the six official nominees for "Best Comedy TV Show!"

Hulu Review readers and the general public can still cast their votes in the comments section of this post. The total audience vote is equal to the vote of one panel member. In addition, the show that gets the most audience votes will be recognized during the Awards Ceremony.

This has been one of the most hotly contested categories in the Awards. Let's see what came out on top.

CLICK ON YOUR FAVORITE SHOW TO CAST YOUR VOTE!



The youngest show on our list, this Tina Fey/Alec Baldwin vehicle is basking in the spotlight of universally favorable buzz.

Arrested Development
This show is famous for having an inverse relationship between critical praise and viewing audience. While movie rumors abound, the Bluth family has already earned a spot in tv comedy history.

The least comedic show on the list, this immensely popular fantasy vehicle has defined the career of creator Joss Whedon.

In the first year of The Office, it was hard to judge this mockumentary series on its own merits. But now, the British series is a distant memory, and Jammers everywhere are clamoring for more.

The most popular and well-produced comedic sketch show on the planet, SNL has distinguished itself lately by masterfully introducing fresh young talent even as the mainstays move on to bigger and better careers.

The only cartoon on the list, The Simpsons have come a long way from their Tracey Ullman roots. Decades of popularity have moved them from cult classic to mainstream icon.

Buffy is the clear winner.

Although Buffy is very, very good, I don't think it really belongs in a comedy category, so I'm going with Arrested Development.

Petey Boy said...

arrested development by far. The smartest and funniest comedy ever.

melissa said...

arrested development, how i wish this show was still on!!!!

KindredPlagiarist said...

Arrested Developement is almost certainly the cleverest show ever put on television. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 30 Rock, and the Office are all new classics of television, but i have a hard time believing that the people voting for them have ever seen AD.

Arrested Development... raining pennies!

Kriss said...

Arrested Development, funny show I can honestly say I laughed on every episode

convect said...

I do agree that Buffy is the best show ever, but for comedy? No way. Arrested Development is, without a doubt, the funniest thing that's ever been on TV. The sort of show you can watch over and over again, and still find new jokes.

Buffy isn't comedy! How did you let this happen? Arrested Development and all of the others are way overrated. I don't care if it didn't make the cut, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is number one.

Anonymous said...

Arrested Development is the best comedy show EVER!!! Yeah, anybody who votes differently must have never watched the show. I have all three seasons on my Ipod. It goes with me wherever I go.

Anonymous said...

yeah, for Buffy, there should be a best show of the 90's category. which it was.

Anonymous said...

Arrested Development. Its the only show you can watch 10 times and still only catch half the jokes.

Arrested Development

Most intelligent, well-written, and creative comedy show by far.

SNL is amazing and iconic, but 2nd place when it comes to the best comedy show.

Has anyone here even seen arrested development? because there is no way you would vote The Office over it if you had

Anonymous said...

Arrested Development hands down. I mean come on!

Sophia said...

The Office! Buffy is the best, but it's not exactly a comedy.

Anonymous said...

arrested development has to be one of the greatest shows of all time. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!

30 Rock

Buffy? A comedy? Huh? Since when? *Looks around paranoid*

I would vote Buffy, but it's not a comedy so it'd be weird.

Anonymous said...

What, no Pushing Daisies?

Buffy.

DaniHerreroFan said...

"Buffy The Vampire Slayer" =)

Anonymous said...

Buffy is absolutely the best, but, as many others have commented, I don't believe it really fits into the comedy category (although it is quite funny). However, it gets my vote anyway.

J said...

Buffy. Weird category for it, but BtVS has never failed to transcend pesky guidelines such as categories. :)

Anonymous said...

arrested development. all you people voting for Buffy should really watch this show.

Sterling said...

My vote goes to Arrested Development.

Anonymous said...

Meant to vote for AD, accidentally voted for 30 Rock. I've made a huge mistake!

Anonymous said...

Never saw Arrested, The Office, or Buffy. Simpsons was o.k. and SNL was only great when Belushi did Samuri warrior skits, Dan Akroid and Jane Curtain being The Coneheads, and Eddie Murphy doing his spoof of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. My picks for this catagory would have been Roseanne, Third Rock from the Sun, Two and a Half Men, I Love Lucy, and for a cartoon, it would have to be between Family Guy and The Boondocks.

The Office is very good, but Arrested Development has better writing. Simpsons is past its prime.
