List Rules Sitcoms that aired between 2000 and 2009.

List of the best sitcoms that aired in 2000-2009, as ranked by sitcom fans. Sitcoms have been a staple of television since the 1950s, but there was never a more eclectic mix of sitcoms than in the 2000s.There was at least one sitcom for every type of television viewer. People who enjoy shows about heartwarming and relatable families could watch "Modern Family," "Malcolm in the Middle," and "My Wife and Kids." If sitcoms filmed in front of live studio audiences were your thing, you could watch "Two and a Half Men" or" Everybody Loves Raymond."

 

If your taste in television leans more towards wacky characters and sidesplitting comedy, shows like "The Office," "30 Rock," "Scrubs," and "Arrested Development" were perfect for you. Many sitcoms of the 2000s were also mixed with a bit of drama and edge, like "Weeds" and "Extras." Some of the top sitcoms of the 2000s came from across the pond, with programs like "Peep Show," "The IT Crowd," and "Flight of the Concords" gaining popularity across the globe.
