The completely serious decline of the Hollywood comedy
Eric Barker stashed this in Diabolical Plans For World Domination
I guess there are fewer things to make us laugh these days.
There's plenty to make us laugh on the telly.
Seems like there are fewer comedies on television these days, too.
Popular shows these days include Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Mad Men, and reality TV shows.
You'd have to go to something like Jon Stewart or John Oliver to find comedies now.
Sitcoms are all but dead -- Arrested Development had to move to Netflix and Community to Yahoo.
Have you watched VEEP?
Okay, there's VEEP. Any others?
Parks and Recreation
Okay, I concede there is a dearth of comedy these days.

Probably a third of this list is comedy...and yes they repeat the ones I just named...http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/lists/2014/04/the-50-best-tv-shows-streaming-on-netflix-2014.html
Even more if you include Simpsons, South Park, Family Guy, and SNL.
But let's face it, Game of Thrones and Walking Dead are far more compelling than any of the comedies.
