    My wife and I just finished watching The Office, Parks & Rec, and New Girl from start to finish recently. We started talking about ranking the three shows from funniest to least funny. Here is how I ranked them.

    1. Parks & Rec
    2. New Girl
    3. The Office

    The way I ranked them was how much I found myself laughing out loud the most. I understand certain shows might be rated higher in terms of acting & writing but we were looking for humor specifically.

    Side note: I understand 30 Rock is a comedy but I found that show to be similar to the Office in terms of humor. More witty dry humor than laugh out loud humor.

    What are your thoughts on my ranking and how would you rank them?

    Also, have you found a show that is funnier than any of these three?

    Community is a weird one for me. I found a couple characters funny, but the show as a whole was more awkward than funny. I didn't find that the actors really meshed well.

    Michael Schur was a producer and writer for The Office, Parks and Recreation, created The Good Place and co-created Brooklyn Nine-Nine, so I recommend all of those :)

    Out of the 3...

    1) Parks and Rec
    2) The Office
    3) New Girl (never watched the full series)

    I'd put Scrubs and The Bernie Mac Show on my list.

    I didn't care much for New Girl when it was airing. I am now binging it with my wife and it is so hilarious. I would recommend it to anyone I know.

    If I had to follow that list, I'd fully agree with you

    1) Parks and Rec
    2) New Girl
    3) The Office

    But I would also put How I Met Your Mother on the list. I liked The Community but it would probably be the furthest down on my list as I wasn't a fan of the show past season 3.

    So If I got to put my own shows on the list it'd be

    1) Parks and Rec
    2) How I Met Your Mother
    3) New Girl
    4) The Office
    5) Scrubs

    1 parks & rec
    2 the office
    3 new girl

    !!!!
    the office went sideways when michael scott left, really wished i just stopped watching then lmao

    and even though the first few seasons of park & rec was a bit EH - the progression was great after that!

    and new girl is a constant - something u would just play but not really pay attention too much to

    my perspectivec at least! <3

    OMG hahhaa I have seen them all and some other comedy ones too!
    I would rank them like this though
    1) New Girl
    2) Parks and Recreation
    3) The Office

    If you want advise I can tell you some that i rank almost on the same level as New Girl
    Two and a Half men (I looooooove this one! the characters are all so adorable!)
    Modern Family ( it really makes you go awww)
    How I met your mother ( good story and Barney is just amazzziinggg character LEGENNDARRY hahha)
    The Big Bang Theory ( Sheldon <3)
    oooh and try Brooklyn 99 too!

    I think all the above shows^ are better than Parks and Recreation AND The Office. just my opinion though ofcourse :)
