MORE (STILL!) FUN ½ HOUR COMEDY TV SHOWS TO BINGE

March 27, 2022 5 Comments

When it comes to TV shows, I’ve developed a new addiction in the last 3 years or so. This addiction is ½ hour comedy and romance TV shows. I never had a thing for them before, but now they’re kind of like candy. You watch one and think, okay, just one more! This is why we’re on our third part of funny half hour TV shows, and who knows, maybe they’ll be more!

LIST | 16 OF THE SPRING ROMANCE MOVIES YOU MAY WANT TO SEE

This collection is smaller than former lists because the more you curate, the fewer titles you can cram on a list. Still we can have some fun with what we have and maybe find some laughs while doing so.

If you think this one is overlooking some of the good ones, make sure to check out our ½ hour TV shows part one, and ½ hour TV shows part two lists, because you know, you just may find it there.

1: BABY DADDY

Ok, is this one THE best show? Goodness no. Is it funny? Yes. The kind that is ideal for a mindless bit of entertainment. It has kind of the same premise as Raising Hope only this time the daughter is raised by her father, his brother and roommate, mother and the childhood friend, Riley, who’s had a LONG standing crush on Ben. The show will rub MANY people the wrong way, but I was able to find it funny and enjoy it even while recognizing its flaws. Find on Amazon or at publication with Hulu

The show is a TV-14 or PG rating; the guys are all the time talking about “hooking up” and casual relationships. There is some innuendo and a scene here and there of a couple in bed. The entire premise results from a one-night-stand kind of relationship.

2: BLOSSOM

If you want a bit of nostalgia TV, Blossom is a pretty decent way to find that in. It’s not my personal favorite, but I did watch the entire run and find it… interesting. It’s about a teenager and her adventures growing up in a house of a single dad and two older brothers, but what really is odd to me, is how serious the show can be. It touches on serious topics, but the funniest thing about it is likely Joey Lawrence as the “dumb” kid who kind of replaces the stereotype female blonde in the movies. Find on Amazon or at publication with Hulu

The show wavers between TV-PG/14 for some innuendo, conversation about having sex; and there’s a character struggling with drugs and alcohol.

3: CALL ME KAT

Based on a British show and giving producer cred to Miranda Hart (Call the Midwife), this comedy is about a woman named Kat who owns a cat café and tries to live life kind of opposite of her mother’s expectations. Funnily enough, this one stars Mayim Bialik who was the teen star of Blossom. In the early episodes of season two, we also get a Blossom reunion, which is fun! Find on Amazon or at publication with Hulu

The show is TV-14 for adult conversation/innuendo

4: MAD ABOUT YOU

Started really recently watching this super popular and acclaimed 90s NBC sitcom. I am sure there are things or will be things I won’t love, but so far, it’s fun. I have a few issues already, but that’s for another day. Comedy just isn’t the same anymore and it makes me sad. Also, the episode that shows how newlyweds Paul and Jamie (who the show follows) met is all kinds of romance lovely. Find on Amazon, with Prime at publication

Wavers between TV-PG, TV-14; there is an affair (we see them in bed), and conversation between a couple about sex, etc. More than one episode deals with a couple worried they won’t have sex anymore. There is some language.

5: MELISSA & JOEY

This one follows a successful career woman who is guardian to her teenage niece and nephew, and the male nanny who comes to work for them. Joey Lawrence and Melissa Joan Hart star in this one, and though it was slow for me to get into, I did end up thinking it was really cute. Find on Amazon, or at publication with Hulu

The show is a TV-14 for innuendo, and some language

6: MIRANDA

This British show features Miranda Hart as an older, single woman whose mother is always trying to set her up. Then into her life walks an old college mate whom Miranda has forever had a crush on. The show has lots of innuendo and adult conversation, but it’s the inspiration for the Fox show Call Me Kat, and if you know any of Miranda Hart’s work, you know, this is funny. Find on Amazon or at publication with Hulu

The show is TV-14 for innuendo and British slang/language  

7: REBA

Like its title would suggest, this one has Reba McIntyre as a woman who discovers her husband had an affair. The show follows their trials, ups and downs, as now a two family home. It’s funny most the time and also has Joanna Garcia as the eldest daughter (and her story is so fun), who I have always liked. Find on Amazon or at publication with Hulu

This one is mostly TV-PG with some innuendo and suggestive jokes. It also deals with the fallout of an affair, divorce, out of wedlock pregnancy/teen pregnancy and some other heavier topics like abusing alcohol or depression.

8: SINGLE PARENTS

This one follows a group of, as the title says, single  parents who support each other through the trials. There’s some spots of romance here and there, too, and I have to say, I’m super curious about what may have come next for Will and Angie – anyone else? Find on Amazon or at publication with Hulu

The show is TV-14 for innuendo/adult conversation, and some language.

9: STEP BY STEP

I watched some of these WAY back in the 90s when they were part of the TGIF series. In fact, I saw an episode the other day that I honestly feel like I have a vague memory of. Weird since I never remember that kind of thing. What does surprise me, same as with Blossom, is some of the very serious issues (meaning I thought this was just a silly family show all about laughs). From sex to dyslexia, and others, there’s more serious things touched on. Some the show deals with better than others meaning some things are more passing than prominent. Find on Amazon, at publication it’s with IMDb TV

The show wavers between TV-14, TV-PG

10: YOUNG & HUNGRY

Funny and entertaining, this one is about a young chef trying to make a go of her life when she’s hired by a wealthy entrepreneur to be his personal chef. Things get complicated when the pair gets intimate. Overall, this one has some good humor, fun characters and good comradery. Plus, I think Emily Osment is hilarious. Find on Amazon or at publication with Netflix

Your turn! Have you seen any of these? Do you want to? Did you like any of these? Or were they duds for you? Which ones would you watch? Do these feature any actors you like? Premises? Which ones do I still need to check out? Comment all the comments below! Let’s chat, folks.

    So many fun shows on this list! I was a huge fan of Step by Step, and I loved Reba. My husband and I watched Young & Hungry, Melissa & Joey, and Baby Daddy together when they were on tv. They all had such funny moments!

      Agree, Angela. Y&H, M&J and BD all have fun moments and silly characters. Love those types of shows. They’re like “candy” and it’s always just like “just one more.” :D
