It's hard to think of a better television genre to unwind with than comedy. These are the kinds of shows that can make us laugh despite everything else that's going on in our lives... and man, do we appreciate that.

Although we're pretty anti-sitcom here (sorry, "The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men"), there are plenty of other comedies we love — so much so, in fact, that it was hard to narrow down our choices for this post.

Here are our 3 picks for the best television comedies to binge-watch!

Parks and Recreation

Why Tim Loves It: "Parks and Recreation" is without question, the most underrated show on television. When I say underrated, I mean, it is inexplicable why the show has such low ratings (I'm looking at you, NBC, for your poor promotion). If you have never seen the show before, there is no better time than now.

For anyone just starting to watch, I will give this warning, the first season is... ok. You can see it getting better as the season progresses as each character grows. The show hits its stride in season two and never looks back. There is no show I have ever seen with so many great characters, including Ron Swanson, Leslie Knope, Ben Wyatt, Tom Haverford, Andy Dwyer (my favorite), Ann Perkins, and the list goes on and on. Even the small parts are amazingly memorable, including characters like Councilman Jamm and Jean-Ralphio. I realize if you have never seen the show before, these names are meaningless, but trust me, you will love them all.

Do yourself a favor join the pack of incredibly loyal and passionate fans of "Parks and Rec" and binge-watch this show the next chance you get.

What People Are Talking About

Colbert is the New Letterman (Only Better)

Comedian, political satirist, and television host Stephen Colbert will replace Dave Letterman as the new host of CBS's "The Late Show." Colbert, who signed a five-year contract, will take over in 2015, so there's some time to mourn the loss of "The Colbert Report." Yes, we'll have to say goodbye not just to the Comedy Central show, but also to his Fox News alter ego. Of the new position, Colbert said, "Simply being a guest on David Letterman's show has been a highlight of my career. I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave's lead. I'm thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth." Congrats!
