I'm a huge fan of the ABC Wednesday comedies (The Middle Sky1, Modern Family Sky1, Suburgatory E4) but was wondering what other US comedies anyone could recommend. BTW I watch Raising Hope and 2 Broke Girls too.

Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23 (ABC/E4) - Fun and heavily surreal
New Girl (FOX/E4) - Stick with it, it gets better towards the end of the first series
The New Normal (NBC/E4) - Very over the top, likes to overplay stereotypes a lot. Despite the synopsis similarities it's nothing like Modern Family...

Good Christian Bitches (GCB). Only one season - there is an episode about jeans which foreshadows why the show got cut. It totally satirises the good southern christian woman. Kirsten Chenoworth leads an ensemble cast. Absolutely hilarious if you can find it.

Community and Parks & Rec are the best comedies to have come out of the US since Arrested Development. Both are fantastic.

Yeah until Bernadette and Amy come into it. I hate those two, they are not funny and ruin the show, well in my opinion anyway

8 Simple Rules and Rules of Engagement are my all time favourite Sitcoms.

People say when John Ritter died, 8 Simple Rules should have died with it, but i disagree, i think it is almost just as good. I wish it just lasted 1 more season though so they could have ended it properly, but annoyingly it ended on a cliffhanger

Ben and Kate. Very cute comedy in its first season. Likely to get cancelled due to bad ratings but still worth a watch!

I'm a big fan of big bang and Mike and Molly,Suburgatory is also worth a look along with Happy Endings.
Ben & Kate is the best new sitcom but will suffer that same fate as the Class
