List Rules Drama-comedy shows only

Some shows are clearly dramas or sitcoms. Clearly. Because those are two genres that exist. Everyone agrees that they exist. Others are dramas with just enough quirkiness or funny time laugh jokes to categorize them as "dramadies" - a creative combination of drama and comedy that just works. It just does. Because we are humans and we like to laugh and cry. If we can do them both at the same time to accommodate our busy schedule of overeating and destroying the planet, even better!  Here is a list of the best of the best dramadies that have aired on US television. What would you say the best dramedy of all time is? Maybe you should vote for it and see if others agree with you.

These are the best dramedies. The Greatest dramedy TV shows to ever grace the airwaves!
