Among the great quality comedy TV that audiences have been blessed with in recent years -- from "Seinfeld" and "The Office" to "Veep" and "Orange Is the New Black" -- there have been some veritable flops that have slipped through the cracks. Try as they may to deliver the knee-slapping, tear-inducing jokes and witty one-liners of their funnier counterparts, they just can't tickle audiences' funny bones.
PrettyFamous, an entertainment data site by Graphiq, determined the worst TV comedies. To find these rotten apples, PrettyFamous looked at all TV shows with at least 2,500 IMDb votes that are categorized as comedies, including some shows that are no longer on the air. They then ranked these comedies according to their Smart Rating. This a score out of 100 that takes into account a show's IMDb votes, IMDb rating and the number of Emmy awards won.
Note that this ranking contains comedy dramas, musical comedies and more. Prank shows and talent-type game shows were also considered. PrettyFamous did not take into account children's shows or sitcoms, as they have a separate ranking specific to sitcoms. Plot descriptions were sourced (with minor edits) by Gracenote.
