Currently I find MODERN FAMILY to be incredibly unfunny. I've watched it five times now because it is "highly" acclaimed...I have not laughed even once..
Modern Family - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


YouTube - "Modern Family" Trailer

And from the past I've never thought that THE JEFFERSONS was funny at all...though I loved their characters in ALL IN THE FAMILY.
The Jeffersons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


YouTube - The Jeffersons - Mother Jefferson's Fall Pt 1 of 2

However let me add that I thought MOTHER JEFFERSON was a very funny character within the show.

So...what current and/or past TV Situation Comedy did you find to NOT be funny?????

I think Two and a Half Men is awful. The few episodes I've seen were just people crassly insulting each other to a laugh track. This is funny?

Never cared for or found "funny" of some of the "all-time greats":

Seinfeld
I Love Lucy
Honeymooners
Roseanne
Friends

Looks like I'm the odd duck....darn good thing I was never in charge of programming for a major network - I'd bankrupt the network quick!

Will and Grace and Two and a Half Men...both not funny and just too sleazy. Same goes for Family Guy.

Seinfeld did have its funny moments, but overall, I think the show is overrated.

I agree, I could never get past a few minutes of their neurotic whining before I stopped watching or changed the channel.
