Archer – FX
This show grabs on to your funny bone and doesn’t just refuse to let go—it moves in and takes over the place. And this uproarious spoof of the spy genre features a lead character that’s as skilled as James Bond and as vain as, well… James Bond. With mommy issues. Episodes feature ridiculous scenarios, implausible situations and, of course, enough sexual innuendo and bathroom humor to please even the most discriminating viewers. Everything from the vocal performances to the animation itself is top notch and worth recognition. We literally can’t get enough Archer. And we’re sure that makes him really happy. Honorable Mentions

After Lately – E! Entertainment – This show gets funnier the more Chelsea Handler hates on her staff. We’re thankful she
decided to keep the cameras rolling.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – FXX –
Season after season this show continues to deliver outlandish scenarios that test the (narrow) limits of four friends in Philly. They never succeed. But we’re still laughing.

Louie – FX – Louie C.K. writes, directs, acts and even picks the music. Does someone have control issues? We hope so because it works.

Mr. Box Office – Entertainment Studios – A Hollywood star must serve as a high school English teacher in South Central LA as a form of community service. Poignant and very funny.

Portlandia – IFC – Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are a brilliant comedy duo, with the liberal-minded, artisanal-obsessed Portland as their object of satire.

Real Husbands of Hollywood – BET Networks and JSR Productions –
A consistently hilarious show. And we know it’s not easy to make it… uh, look so easy. We can’t wait for more antics from Kevin Hart and the gang.
