    A non-english show in this category is “Pastewka” from Germany. It was aired 2005-2014 in seven seasons.

      Very cool suggestion. Thanks, Reinhard!

  • Mateiyu

    I always thought Charlie Sheen was the exaggerated version of Charlie Harper (from “Two and a Half Men”). ^^

    • Sarah Ricard

      His “funeral” episode was definitely as much about Charlie Sheen as it was Charlie Harper — that’s for sure!

  • Justin Bowers

    Im suprised that “The Sarah Silverman Program” isn’t on this list. She
    is a great comedian, and the television series is hilarious as well.
