Television comedy had a presence from the earliest days of broadcasting. The situation comedy, or sitcom, has been the most common, successful and culturally significant type of television comedy. As the name suggests, these programs feature recurring characters placed in humourous situations. Since the early 1950s with "I Love Lucy" in the US and "Hancock's Half Hour" in Britain, sitcoms have always had a special place in the hearts of viewers and gathered highly devoted followers, as the familar characters often become beloved. Below you may scroll though time to your fondly remembered telly programs. For Alice's motherlode of Television, stay with "Television Shows".
