"Everybody Loves Raymond". I guess that's because I hated everybody's character in that show (except for Patricia Heaton).

"Friends" was another one. "How I Met Your Mother" and "Scrubs" are current shows I don't find funny at all.

That is how I feel about Dave Chapelle's show. His skits are funny in the beginning, but get lame as it goes on.

"Friends" (ugh!)

"Family Guy" (I only laugh when Stewie is onscreen)

I HATE "Everybody Loves Raymond".

Ok, so what comedy shows do make you laugh? Maybe you're just depressed?
I always thought Third Rock From the Sun was funny, and also, Mad TV, and the first few years of Sat Night Live was funny.

What kind of a thing is that to say? People are depressed because they don't find certain shows funny?

I personally enjoy South Park, Seinfeld, Strangers with Candy, Arrested Developement, Reno 911, the Simpsons (sometimes).

Seinfeld is the worst Saturday Night Live is SUPER CORNY Mad TV is ANOTHER SNL

How about The Simpsons? I don't find them cute not one bit or a new cartoon called the PJ's? Trying to mock people from the project's CORNY AS HELL. Beevis and Butthead are stupid as well and so are the dudes from Jackass at least they came up with the RIGHT NAME for their show

OMG I can probably think of so much more because TV just sucks most of the time

So we can only find the same shows funny?
How boring....but I'm glad you solved my depression problem.

I loved:
Becker
3rd Rock
Seinfeld...but one time thru is enough
Dharma and Greg
Golden Girls

So we're good now?
