Some of these funny TV shows are so good, they'll make you want to punch a baby. Yes, punch a baby. That. Good.

Many of these amusing TV shows are still on the air (The Simpsons, Big Bang Theory), others have gone to TV heaven (Cheers, 30 Rock), and more still have been resurrected from the digital grave (Family Guy, Futurama).
