The 2010s were a decade blessed (or, depending on how you look at it, cursed) with the rise of Peak TV and the dawning of some of the best sitcoms in TV history. Gone were the days of three channels with three hours of primetime slots and only a handful of shows to choose from - in its place was sitcom after sitcom mercilessly competing for viewing time and becoming more and more niche with each new episode. 

Sure, some of the top 2010s sitcoms were broad sitcoms that attracted massive audiences - like The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family - but others - like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Happy Endings - took advantage of cult audiences and streaming platforms to create something that only comes around once in a generation. The best 2010s sitcoms on this list are all unforgettable, but thanks to the sheer number of them, you've probably forgotten at least some of these ever existed. 

So let's flick through the channels, binge through this list, and revisit some of the funniest sitcoms of the 2010s.
