I wrote what I believed to be the 20 greatest comedies of all time a while back and at the time I was generally satisfied with the list, however as time has passed other comedies have come to the front of my mind which were snubbed and really belong, hence I have updated the list. So let’s get going!
The Newsroom is that show that is about people who work in a newsroom, presenting the news and getting up to all sorts of shenanigans whilst they’re at it. However the Newsroom isn’t really about the presentation of the news itself but rather the process of gathering and developing stories. Sadly for the handful of fans the show had, season 3 was the final segment in the Newsroom’s very short run.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that Modern Family was the hot new comedy on the scene and now look at it, it’s one of the most established comedies around and season 5 saw Modern Family hit the landmark of its 100th episode. Naturally when a show runs this long it is hard to keep the quality high, so has Modern Family managed to buck the trend?
