List RulesVote up the funniest horror television series to have ever aired on television.

The best horror comedy shows are a devilishly delightful balance of silly and scary. The funniest horror series ever shown on television get as many laughs as screams. If you’ve been looking for the best funny horror to add some dark humor to your TV nights, this list of the best horror-comedy series of all time will help you figure out what needs to go into your queue.

The really funny horror shows have both scary storylines and hilarious one-liners. From dark comedy horror to slapstick spookiness, this is a mix of two genres that are very different but perfect together. But not all comedy-horror TV shows are wall-to-wall laughs - other series are more quietly funny, or based on silly-scary situations, such as iZombie, Truth Seekers, and Crazyhead. If you’re interested in big laughs, then Ash vs Evil Dead and What We Do In The Shadows might be just what you’re looking for.

Which shows balance comedy and horror the best? Vote up the best horror-comedy shows, vote down the shows that don't deliver the chills with their chuckles.
