It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

One of our favorite things about It’s Always Sunny is how incredibly willing the leads are to be reprehensible. They’re dopey, lazy and self-righteous — but always think they’re smarter than anyone else. They have no loyalty to anyone, especially each other. They never learn anything, and only change with the times when they think it will be to their sexual advantage, as when Dennis (Glenn Howerton) went progressive in an effort to court millennial women.

And yet: This is one of the funniest shows ever on television, and the longest-running live-action sitcom. It’s almost like they’re on to something.

We also love that Always Sunny creator Rob McElhenney is such a huge fan of the next show on our list that he even did a cameo on it. The shows have a lot in common in their willingness to tell great stories without worrying about likability.
