Sitcoms are one of the cornerstones of American TV culture. Ever since the 1940s, they have been shaping the audience’s cultural landscape and promoting trends. “Sitcom” was the most in-demand sub-genre in the U.S. in 2022, ahead of “Crime Drama” by more than 12.5%, according to Parrot Analytics‘ data, which takes into account consumer research, streaming, downloads and social media, among other engagement.

With short-length episodes and a loose storyline that makes a show easy to follow even if watched in non-sequential order, comedy series are highly re-watchable and often the kind of show that people have in the background while doing something else.
