Interesting juxtaposition... Benny Hill and Curly were much alike, on and off screen. Never realized it before.

The (american) Office has been a "hit" show, although the quality of it has been hit-or-miss. My wife and I enjoy the PBS shows shown through the "Masterpiece Mystery" brand as direct imports. The Inspector Lewis series has been decent although we often wonder if there are any people left alive in Oxford based on the amount of strange murders that happen there. ;)

I'd have to go back to the "Hitchhiker's Guide" shows to tell you one I really liked. Red Dwarf was fun but I never managed to see it all.

Now that this has opened up and I don't have to stick to sci-fi:
Monty Python (cannot be anything but first)
Black Adder -- I know lots of people don't get it, but I love it
Jeeves and Wooster adaptations -- more Steven Fry and Hugh Laurie!
the Poirot mysteries
Bishop of Dibley
The Young Ones
As Time Goes By -- made the the decades past 50 look cozy and fun, and not scary; came along at the right time for me
there was a Robin Hood series that looked magically delicious, but saw only a few episodes

American sci-fi TV favs (and a couple not really sci-fi) are:
Star Trek (esp. TOS, NG - #1, and V)
Firefly
Alien Nation
Babylon 5 but I only saw the first two or three seasons
X-Files -- we're watching season 4; X-Files are a Halloween tradition for us
Boston Legal
Northern Exposure
M.A.S.H.

In the last two seasons, South Park has moved past all other modern animated series, IMHO. And Team America is my favorite animated movie, but we're not talking movies, or I'd have to add Them and Forbidden Planet and so many more of the oldies to the American sci-fi list, as well as the newer The Man From Earth, which is a little bit like a conversation with L. Long right before the ship lifts.

TV I could never get into:
the Stooges -- they are soo mindlessly violent and depressing
Alf
spectator sports, whether openly staged or not

while appreciation of slapstick humor may have a gender bias, I'm thinking that it's the sort of thing that either strikes you as funny or it falls flat on it's face

with that said, I'll throw in a vote for Laurel and Hardy- a notch above the 3 stooges imho- Stan's stupid grin and fluffing of his hair will make me giggle in a heartbeat ! yep lotsa pratfalls for Stan and Ollie but never any blood :) or broken bones- oh yeah Stan Laurel was a brit !

as for (almost) contemporary tv will also throw in a vote for Third Watch and the Sopranos- i'm discovering that i definitely have a bias for ensemble acting! Sorry folks I don't watch a whole lot of network tv here-
