List RulesVote up the best television comedies that are for and star teenagers.

Comedy series for teens have to walk a delicate line, not being so childish they’re off-putting to their audience, but also not be too grown-up. Much like being a teenager, great teen comedies and sitcoms figure out how to flourish in the limbo between kiddie stuff and being an adult. If you’ve been looking for the best teen comedies that find the humor or situational comedy in being high school aged, this list of the best teen comedy series of all time will help you figure out what needs to go into your queue and what older shows might deserve a rewatch from today’s teens.

The Disney Channel seems to have the corner on the best sitcoms for teens. Shows such as Even Stevens, Andi Mack, and even Wizards of Waverly Place are not only relatable, they’re fun. When considering all the best teen comedy series, Nickelodeon’s ‘90s lineup of TEENick (which is now its own channel) teen comedies like Salute Your Shorts and Clarissa Explains it All earn their place on the list. Teen comedy series are not only funny, they often follow the actors from their tweens into their late teens - sometimes even continuing in spin-offs. On this list are teen television comedies where the protagonists are in their teenage years for the majority of the show’s run.

Which teen TV shows are the funniest? Vote up the best teen comedies, then vote down the shows that don't deserve a chuckle, and add any teen sitcoms or comedy series that are missing.
