The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990-1996)

While the internet may be sick of Will Smith now, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is still a lovable comedy that stays lighthearted while still tackling meaningful themes.

Seinfeld (1989-1998)

One of the funniest parts of Seinfeld is that all the main characters are horrible people. Despite their consistently poor behavior, the show is fun to watch and wildly funny.

Modern Family (2009-2020)
