No. 1 of all time. This programme is hilarious if you can manage to get into it, it takes awhile for some people.

2. The Black Adder (1982–1983)

First series was the best, but each were great.

Even better than Blackadder.

4. John Safran's Race Relations (2009)

Documentary, Comedy

John Safran is back with his most daring and personal adventure yet. It's about cross-cultural, interracial and interfaith love.

Stars: John Safran, Justin Heazlewood, Costas Kilias, Benedict Wall

Votes: 107

All of John Safran's television programmes are equally as good. But if I had to make a pick, I'd choose Race Relations. Saffran makes a fool out of himself, much of the time for real, while still providing an interesting documentary presented in exceptionally quirky ways.

5. The Office (2001–2003)

TV-MA | 30 min | Comedy, Drama

The story of an office that faces closure when the company decides to downsize its branches. A documentary film crew follow staff and the manager David Brent as they continue their daily lives.

Stars: Ricky Gervais, Martin Freeman, Mackenzie Crook, Lucy Davis

Votes: 79,751

British Office all the way. The U.S version is simply not funny at all, completely misses the point and style of humor!

6. The Simpsons (1989– )

TV-14 | 22 min | Animation, Comedy

The satiric adventures of a working-class family in the misfit city of Springfield.

Stars: Dan Castellaneta, Nancy Cartwright, Julie Kavner, Yeardley Smith

Earlier seasons, the last ten or so haven't been as great.

7. Twisted Tales (1996)

In an Australian version of Tales Of The Unexpected, Bryan Brown introduces stories of the bizarre and the supernatural. Sometimes serious, often comical, but always with a twist at the end... See full summary »

Stars: Bryan Brown, Brittany Byrnes, Kimberley Davies, Nadine Garner

Votes: 66

Two series of this, made quite a few years apart from one another. Extremely hard to find these days. Had some top actors on this show, Bryan Brown repeatedly (as he hosted the programme), Geoffry Rush, Sam Neil, Vince Colossomo. I think the second series was slightly better.

8. Two Twisted (2005–2006)

30 min | Fantasy, Mystery

'Two Twisted' follows on from the 'Twisted Tales'(1996) series produced by Australian actor/producer Bryan Brown. These Australian series' follow the tradition of 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents... See full summary »

Stars: Louis Theroux, Randy James, J.J. Michaels, Mike Oehler

Votes: 2,198

Louis Theroux, son of Paul Theroux is an incredibly annoying and entertaining gonzo style documentarian who always manages to come off as a total pussy and piss off everyone he comes into contact with. He also manages to expose ridiculousness in different parts society with his passive style of interrogative questioning.

10. Futurama (1999–2013)

Stars: Powderfinger, Queens of the Stone Age, Chris Cornell, Silverchair

Votes: 137

Though gone down hill the last couple of years due to playing increasingly larger amounts of lame-stream music, Rage is still the only music video source watchable on Australian television, a true treasure of public television, satisfying and tripping the up late, late night drugged up people for 24 years, with its bizarre and often obscure music videos from crazy drugged up bands every saturday night..

12. 30 Rock (2006–2013)

TV-14 | 22 min | Comedy

Fairly funny, but can be pretty hit and miss.

Stars: David Threlfall, Rebecca Atkinson, Alice Barry, Nicky Evans

First season was definitely the best.

26 min | Comedy

The show features sketches mocking social and political issues, and often feature comedic publicity stunts.

Stars: Julian Morrow, Andrew Hansen, Chris Taylor, Chas Licciardello

Votes: 2,359

Funny pranks, unfortunately has ended. Some segments were very lame and immature, but some times the sketches were so poignant, relevant and beautifully satirical and/or ironic. Especially great were pranks that were done in that Borat, Sasha Baron Cohen way. Made fools out of people that were so blissfully unaware.

Made some great points about Australian Politics.

15. Thank God You're Here (2008)

60 min | Comedy

Four celebrities each walk into an unknown scenario and improvise their way through the scene.

Stars: Paul Merton, Tara Flynn, Cicely Giddings, Nick Haverson

Hilarious improv programme when it was still on television.

A mockumentary exploring the issues faced by young males in the 21st century - their influences, their pressures, their dreams and ambitions.

Stars: Chris Lilley, Deborah Jones, Greg Fairall, Liam Keltie

Votes: 3,749

Sometimes funny.. Not a really good ratio of funny to non-funny time though.

18. A Current Affair (1971– )


An Australian current affairs program that broadcasts stories on community issues such as diet fads, welfare cheats, negligent doctors and dodgy builders.

Stars: Tracy Grimshaw, Leila McKinnon, Alison Piotrowski, Steve Marshall

Votes: 195

Hilarious, sensational, over reactionary joke for journalism. Its so entertaining to watch the bad editing and overly antagonizing of the harassful journalists as they chase 'shonky' tradesmen down the street.

Its just a travesty that people don't see through these manipulators.

19. Today Tonight (1995– )

30 min | News

Seven Network's nightly flagship current affairs programme.

Stars: Matthew White, Dennis Hood, Naomi Robson, Henry Meller

Votes: 190

Same as above.
