    Just finished watching an episode of Coupling (British comedy), and I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. What TV shows have tickled your funny bone HARD?

    Coupling
    Frasier
    Late Night with Conan O'Brien
    NewsRadio
    The Simpsons


    Probably more to come...

    Ok fine, we have some shows that are funny and caused us to laugh out loud. Here are a few of the many places where I actually did:

    Seinfeld: George in line in the Soup Nazi’s kitchen.
    Crub Yr Enthusiaim: Larry shouting ‘fuck’ at a crowed party and everyone else picking up and following suit—all to cover the chef with Touretts syndrome
    Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman:—easy one, drowning in the soup.
    Fernwood Tonight: Martin Mull’s interviews with about anybody, but especially Tom Waits and when Tom manages to borrow money from the interviewers.
    The Larry Sanders Show: anytime Rip Torn gets on a roll.
    WKRP in Cincinnati: Dropping the turkeys from the helicopter as part of a Thanksgiving promotion—and not realizing that turkeys can’t fly.
    Your Show of Shows: The skit that is the takeoff on This is your life. Also the town clock bit.
    The Dick Van Dyke Show: The flashback where Rob breaks Laura’s foot.
    The Simpsons: Bart doing all of H. M. S. Pinafore as he and Sideshow Bob go down the river. Also everything in the Australia episode.
    The Mary Tyler Moore Show: everything about the death of Chuckles the Clown episode
    The Bob Newhart Show: the Thanksgiving episode where Bob and Howard get drunk, destroy the turkey and order Moo Goo Gai Pan
    M*A*S*H: the invention of Captain Tuttle
    Cheers: the money changing hands at Diane and Sam’s wedding, as they to and fro as to actually saying I do.
    All in the Family: the baseball discussion between Archie and Meathead—he just begins to think that he and Archie have something in common when Archie starts to talk about how the game changed in 1947.
    Father Ted: the entire ‘Father Stone’ episode, which culminates in Father Ted praying to God to intervene and get rid of Father Stone (self-acknowledged world’s biggest bore).
    The League of Gentlemen: any of the arguments that strangers get into in the Local Shop
    Absolutely Fabulous: the shopping trip when you gradually realize that the girls went to New York to get a doorknob
    Faulty Towers: Basil doing the goosestep in front of the German guests. Anytime he is correcting Manuel.
    The Vicar of Dibly: all of the meetings of the church committee.
    The Royle Family: the men painting the walls to the radio--perfection
    Monty Python: the ‘you never expect the Spanish Inquisition’ bit
    Saturday Night Live: Roseanne Roseanna Dana
