So many to choose from...These are some that spring to mind (I like a comedy, me)

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
Friday Night Dinner
Black Books
Big Train
Hancocks Half Hour
Dads Army
The Goldbergs
Phoenix Nights
Black Adder II
Black Adder III
Friends
Cheers
Frasier
Mid-run series of That 70s Show
Stella Street
Angry Kid
15 Storeys High
Gavin & Stacey
Spaced
Toast of London
IT Crowd
Young Ones
Colins Sandwich
Auf wiedersehen Pet

The worst? The absolute worst? Worse than the bored, lazy, execrable, canned laughter, poorly written ooh-err missus sit-coms like Hi De Hi or are You Being Served? The worst comedy ever? In the history of comedy? Bar none?

I give you "How I Met Your Mother". A collection of lame stories written around a bunch of irritating cunts whose breathtaking lack of comedic ability is surpassed only by their herculean fucking smugness. I despise them all.

Hello Froggy, hope you're well mate?

Colins Sandwich was very very funny as are most of your picks. I'd add Operation Goodguys, The Office and obviously Only fools...

Hello Thames - long time no speak, mate. Hope all is good with you.

Good call - I forgot about Operation Good Guys. I even bought that on DVD.

It was pretty ground-breaking that show. A fake fly-on-the-wall documentary - no music, no polish, played straight to camera. It pre-dated The Office, and I am sure gave Merchant and Gervais the idea for that show.

Currently watching a lot of Impractical Jokers (American version).
It's a bit hit and miss, but when it's good it can make me cry laughing.
The Karl Pilkington stuff on Sky is always entertaining -- An Idiot Abroad, The Moaning of Life and Sick of It.
All time number one remains Father Ted though.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

However, I have just watched both series of Derek. Trying to think of anything that I have watched, that has been funnier. I can't
