It usually depends on sarcasm level, I like sarcasm. I also like rather painful accidents, such as anvils falling.

Or, "Yes!"

Ah, good times, good times XD

PS: I voted what they say, because they can't always be just slipping on a banana peel and its funny... well, maybe to a 4 year old, but it has to have backbone to why the person slipped on a banana peel!

I chose 'other' because IMO a TV show is only funny if it has a brain. Anyone can make a stupid fart joke. Real humor takes intelligence. :/

What they say, what else? I've seen many TV shows that are hilarious; That's So Raven, House, Thank God you're here... And probably more that I can't remember. 8D

I believe what they say and what they do without saying makes a tv show funny. i.e.; On the guitar hero episode when Stan's dad plays guitar and sings to "Carry on my Wayward Son" by Kansas. His singing = comedy. Also, he doesn't say anything, but when he tries out the guitar hero late at night. Just the way he acted made me laugh.

Other: Gir.

Gir makes something funny and therefore nothing is funny if it doesn't have Gir.

Seriously though, randomness imo. Gir still rocks though.

:D @ this.

Anyways, I picked "What they say". Graphics are funny sometimes though.
And cheese references. Cheese is awesome.

Other: Satire. I know that's part of what they say, but it's in a way a different art all together. And that's why I love South Park so much - it's so satirical.

What they say is definitely the most important factor. Would The Simpsons be funny if they didn't say funny stuff? Answer: NO!!!!

What they say is important, but they also have to mean it, otherwise, it's not funny

I think the witty comments and the special effects are what make the TV programs funny, as compared to dumb random humor.

A TV show is funny when l33t stuff is in it. Like making a daily life ( gangsters on street, going to fight, then one is touching his ass all the time xDDD ) very twisted and funny, though keep the truth in it.

That was the saddest excuse for comedy that I've ever heard.


I think that funniness, but not the cheap N00b humor. More of Parodies, running gags, spoofs, sarcasm, and good randomness.
