Which situation comedies are the best on television today? When asked that question most people would likely point toward CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” or ABC’s “Modern Family.” The former is the most reliably funny and is in its eighth season as full of comic energy as it was in its’ first. The latter is still the most sophisticated and inventive (and, this season, the most important, if only for the way its’ already classic laptop episode actively redefined what a half-hour sitcom can do). Others might lean towards HBO’s “Veep” and “Silicon Valley,” the smartest comedies to come along in a long while, both featuring some of the most priceless comic performances on television today.
