We love binge-watching our favorite TV shows. Comedy TV shows have always been popular among the masses. Especially Sitcom, it always wins our hearts. Some of the most popular shows of all time have been sitcoms. Keeping their popularity in mind, we decided to make a list of the most-viewed comedy TV shows of all time.
Viewership data of some shows like I Love Lucy, Frasier, M.A.S.H and few other popular shows are not available, thus they are not in the list. Here is the list of 10 most-viewed comedy TV shows of all time.
10. Curb Your Enthusiasm
Though the main character of this series Larry David has a good wife, a peaceful life, a successful career, he put himself in such hilarious moments that he couldn’t imagine. The things that Larry David got himself in and out of were consistently hilarious, and the mere fact that there’s no script makes Curb even more of a masterpiece. A lot of cringe comedy forgets to actually be funny, but that was never a problem for Curb, which remained as funny (and cringeworthy) as ever.
9. Parks and Recreation
Leslie Knope, the main character of this show wanted to grow her career and beatify her own town by helping and building a community for nurses. Her colleague Tom always helped her and her boss Ron opposed the government. The whole story is full of comedy by their rational behavior. It earns a place among the most-viewed comedy TV shows of all time.

3. The Office
One of the first popular shows to utilize the mockumentary style, The Office has gone down in history as one of the most clever sitcoms of all time. The employees of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company were led by their oblivious leader Michael (Steve Carell). He was the best boss in the world, and had the mug to prove it. It has a large cast, and yet each character is fleshed out and hilariously distinct. Admittedly, the show starts to fall apart a bit once Steve Carell leaves in season seven, but the seasons with him as the lead are strong enough to make this show one of the best sitcoms of all time.
Friends is the ultimate feel-good, easy-to-watch sitcom. Who doesn’t love watching a group of friends go through ups and downs, date and break up and then date again? This show is infinitely re-watchable, perfect for a rainy day when you’re looking to feel nostalgic. Friends will always be there for you.

Chronicling the misadventures of four selfish New York friends, the show got off to a slow start, then launched into the rating stratosphere during its fourth season. In the time since the series hasn’t lost an ounce of its comedic luster. The fact that the show has been in continual reruns and syndication since its 76-million viewer finale proves how beloved it remains to this day: Seinfeld is still making money for networks, years after it ended. Ir makes it one of the best sitcoms of all time.
