The crew from "How I Met Your Mother"Ted's (and formerly Lily and Marshall's, presently Robin's) apartment sits a few floors above their favorite New York City bar, McClaren's Pub. A great majority of the crew's funniest moments and most soul-searching discussions happen in the same booth at McClaren's. The bar allows Barney to have a consistent base for picking up ladies, it was where Ted first laid eyes on Robin and it was the place that Marshall and Lily went to after first getting engaged in episode one.
Here's a clip of the crew at McClaren's about to meet Ted's current girlfriend for the first time. When Ted tells everyone that his new gf is hot, Barney launches into his theory of the "Hot/Crazy Scale." Ted quickly denies that she isn't crazy just plain hot, to which we later learn that Barney Stenson, is once again, always right.
What truly makes them drunk is that they not only live above this bar, but they go there pretty much every night. The sheer amount of money they spend on drinks there must be astronomical, and not one of them goes without a drink or a beer almost every single night.

As soon as he would set foot into the house after a long work day, Archie would yell for his dingbat wife Edith to bring him a nice cold beer so that he could plop into his favorite chair, pull the tab and strike a match to light his cigar. Archie's hand was made to hold a can of beer. The man loved his ales and lagers so much that towards the end of the series, he opened his own bar, "Archie's Place," so that he and his drunken cohorts could fill their steins or jiggers with whatever their poison was.
Here's a clip of a supremely toasted Archie, frozen and locked in his basement, thinking that he hears the voice of the Almighty....God, not Bruce or Evan.

The gang from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia""We aren't sending Frank to rehab for bad ideas."
They own a bar, the worst bar in Philadelphia, to be correct. The gang on 'It's Always Sunny" is probably some of the drunkest buncha drunks ever to grace the boob tube.
Their excessive drinking and minimal thinking has lead to some amazing ideas like the 'shot gun,' Paddy's dollars, kitten mittons and most wonderfully Green Man.
Frank Reynolds ('dad' to Sweet Dee, Dennis and maybe Charlie) in his nasty, genius little mind, decided to start drinking his boxed wine out of can, that way no one would know that he was drinking and could carry it around with him wherever and whenever he wanted. In this clip, Dennis and Dee are working on staging and intervention for Frank concerning his drink, while drinking and praising Frank for his brilliant wine in a can idea.
Also notice that a lot of episodes open with them drinking, but before that there are titles that state when the episode is taking place... and it's usually relatively early in the morning...on a weekday...in Philadelphia...and that's probably why.

Don Draper and the "Mad Men""We drink because it's what men do."
Never had the world of misogynistic, cocktail-infused 50's advertising been thought of as sexy until "Mad Men" and Don Draper came along. They smoke, pour liquor and hit on secretaries all before lunch, all while looking incredibly debonair in their perfectly tailored suits and with their slicked-back hair. One of Don's colleagues, Roger Sterling is the embodiment of a sauve, sophisticated alcoholic if there ever was one.
Everyone wants a job where they can just sit around, do nothing and drink all day. These characters make us believe this existed at some point, or, at the very least, that it's possible. This is why we love them.
