    So far 9 half-hour 21stc comedies got into the top Emmy category for their first season. Which is your favorite series overall? I say 30 Rock.

    It’s interesting that it’s 1 each for Netflix/Amazon/NBC/ABC/Fox/Showtime, then 3 for campaign kings HBO. And the 2000s were much less prone to jumping quickly into a hot new show. Perhaps the expansion of nominees explains part of the shift.

    Shows that took a bit longer: Malcolm/Enthusiasm/Office/Conchords S2, Entourage/Half Men/Parks/Louie S3, Scrubs/HIMYM/Big Bang S4, Family Guy S7

    Hard to say because some of these are still going, but ‘Veep’ may wind up as my favorite comedy series of all-time.

    If we’re just looking at first seasons, ‘Girls’, ‘Modern Family’, and ‘Arrested Development’ are the gold standard.

    In fact, I have ‘Girls’ and ‘Arrested Development’ S1 at 9.5/10 and ‘Modern Family’ at 9.4/10. ‘Veep’ season one? 7.9/10.

    The most consistently great show is probably 30 Rock. The rest either suck, are okay, or used to be great but fell off the wagon.

    1. Arrested Development
    2. 30 Rock
    3. Veep
    4. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
    5. Modern Family
    6. Nurse Jackie
    7. Girls
    8. Sillicon Valley

    I’m gonna leave Transparent off, I feel like I don’t care enough about that show, haven’t even seen season 2. Kimmy Schmidt hasn’t even aired season 2, but situations and jokes from season 1 have remained with me for almost a year now in ways that Modern Family, Jackie, Girls, Sillicon Valley and Transparent never did or never will be able to do.

    I personally prefer Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to Veep, Transparent, Nurse Jackie, 30 Rock, Girls and Modern Family, but I am uncomfortable calling it a great show.

    Well Arrested Development is my favorite comedy of all time so….

    After that, I’d say Veep is a close second, Silicoln Valley not far beind, then 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The others I either dont watch (Nurse Jackie) or dont care for (Modern Family and Girls)

    Hard to really pit Kimmy Schmidt or Transparent up already with 1-2 seasons to judge so I went with 30 Rock and easily could have picked Nurse Jackie too which both had 7 magnificent seasons

    Modern Family, by the thinnest of hairs, with 30 Rock and Arrested Development right behind them.
