The 20 best TV comedies in the last 20 years

Yardbarker Logo By LaToya Ferguson of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 21: This year, Mike Schur’s Amy Poehler-led comedy Parks and Recreation turns 10 years old. The series has been called one of the best TV comedies of the last 20 years, so what better way to celebrate its legacy than to look back at some of the other best TV comedies of the last 20 years.20 best comedies is honestly a very small number in the long run, so please accept that many shows had to be sacrificed in order to create this list. Shows like The Good Place and Atlanta should arguably be on this list, but this instead focuses mostly on shows that have gotten a longer look in the rear view—both of those shows are still young enough and have the possibility to go so many other places. And hour-long comedies—as great as they can be—are also off the list. (Sorry, Psych and Ugly Betty.)Most importantly, to help narrow things down, only shows that began within the last 20 years were eligible to be a part of this. Any show that began before 1999, even if they lasted even longer or are still running—nope. For example: Sex and the City and Will & Grace began in 1998, so they just missed the cut-off.
