The new fall TV season is about to get underway. Based on last year, the best comedies on TV are on channels broadcast over-the-air for free.
The Best Comedies on TV
- Modern Family (ABC) — We think this is the best consistently funny show
- The Office (NBC) — Often great, but some episodes are better than others
- Parks ‘n’ Rec (NBC) — Pretty bad the first season, but has gotten a lot better
- Raising Hope (FOX) — At times too silly, but can be good
- The Middle (ABC) — Best comedy family show
Recommended TV Antenna for Free TV
What you’ll be able to pick up over-the-air will depend on your location, but I highly recommend trying out an antenna to see what you can pick up. The fact that the best comedies are available on over-the-air television provides yet another reason to cancel expensive cable tv subscriptions and go back to low-tech over-the-air tv viewing. If you are satisfied with free tv options in your area, you could save $60 or $100 per month by canceling cable subscription.
If you have an old tv, you’ll need a converter box and possibly a new antenna. If you have a newer flatscreen tv, you might just need a new antenna. I highly recommend buying the Terk Technology HDTVi VHF/UHF HDTV Indoor Antenna. This is the antenna owned and trusted by the Low-Tech Times.
