Best-Reviewed TV Comedies 2017

Netflix takes the top two spots in the comedy series category, including returning overall winner Master of None, which also won this category in 2015 for its first season.

The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2017. Scores might change over time.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Master of None's second season picks up where its predecessor left off, delivering an ambitious batch of episodes that builds on the show's premise while adding surprising twists.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Timely, provocative, and sharply written, Dear White People is an entertaining blend of social commentary and incisive humor.

Insecure: Season 2 (2017)
98%

#3
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Insecure displays title-defying confidence in its second season, upping the comedy and deepening the relationships between its talented ensemble.

#4
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: By voluntarily blowing up its premise, The Good Place sets up a second season that proves even funnier than its first.
Directed By: Michael Schur, David Miner

Catastrophe: Season 3 (2017)
100%

#5
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Catastrophe deepens the drama in its latest season -- but remarkably loses none of its comedy along the way.
