Forget the Emmy category of Best Comedy Series. Let's face it. They should really rename that category "Best Comedy Series with Elitist Appeal and High Cool Factor" .... What if they gave an award for the FUNNIEST show on TV -- you know, the one that makes you giggle, howl and guffaw the most? I say "South Park" (though it's not as good as it used to be -- hear THAT, Trey Parker?!) ... but it's also OK to pick some trashy, low-brow, frat boy "Workaholics" or "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" ...
Curb your Enthusiasm, my favorite comedy from that season, it may be corny, but it's so well done that I barely notice.

30 Rock duh...no other comedy makes me laugh more.
Also...if we're talking about "low brow"...then 2 Broke Girls makes laugh quite a bit. Even if it is stupid and childish and offensive and racist and they pretty much repeat the same jokes over and over again...it still makes me crack up.
South Park is also consistently funny. And Bob's Burgers.
Does anyone think I'd like Curb? I've never seen a single episode...
Curb is not for everyone. I had to force myself through the first season before realizing how truly hilarious it is during the second season. And it's still going strong for a show in its eighth season.
