Dealing with impossible co-workers can be hell, but watching others struggle to get along in the workplace is often comedic gold.
Welcome to TVLine’s inaugural ranking of the best workplace comedies of all time. We’ve picked our absolute favorites from the 70s through to the last TV season – and it was not easy. Our top picks come from a wide variety of networks (Comedy Central, The WB, HBO, Adult Swim and more), and cover fictional newsrooms, schools, bars, government departments and, of course, some business. of paper that holds a special place in our hearts.
Here we have included old school dishes like Taxi and Cheersand ranked them accordingly alongside new selections such as Parks and Recreation, Abbott Elementary and Scrubs, to name a few.
But before you start scrolling, a few notes: For this particular list, we only considered American productions (apologies to the OG Desk and The computer crowd). In addition, we excluded some heavyweights As Veep and Ted Lasso, that don’t quite stick to a basic framework, or follow the typical workplace comedy formula. (Again, tough decisions had to be made!)
So which series tops our list? Scroll down to see how it all went, and be sure to drop a few comments to let us know which shows would make your personal list!
