I watch all of these shows except Glee (ugh so sick of everyone fawning over it), Ugly Betty and Big Bang Theory. The rest are all AMAZING. I voted HIMYM, but I really adore all of those comedies.

I like The Office, but it didn't seem to be up to its usual quality this season, and I like 30 Rock but not as much as everyone else does. I actually love Ugly Betty this season; I think it's vastly improved.

!as hard between 30 Rock, HIMYM, Ugly Betty and Big Bang Theory, but of course I had to go with How I Met Your Mother

I like Glee and I absolutely love some of the episodes, but I love every single episode of Modern Family. It is such a great show and I laugh throughout the entire thing. Cameron slays me and I love how Phil tries to be cool and is always trying to feel up on Gloria. Absolutely my favorite new show this year!

Glee, definitely. The plot is fresh and interesting, the writing is always so funny, and the singing is amazing, not to mention the fact that the acting is top notch. Also, the guy who plays Finn is adorable. Just saying. Second place goes to Big Bang Theory. My dad actually introduced me to that show by telling me that there was a show on CBS that could be written about my really dorky cousin, haha. Of course I had to watch.

So tough - I chose Glee, but could have easily gone with HIMYM, The Office, or Chuck

I'm so happy that there are so many great comedies on right now. I watch almost all of these (except Community and P&R) and love them, but Modern Family has been hilarious so far.

This was hard. The question made me think I was going to answer NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS and if that was the case it would be a toss up between NBC and ABC for me but I love Glee! It's been the best addition to my tv line up!

I had a hard time voting because I love 30 Rock and Community so much! But I also love It's Always Sunny and adore Big Bang Theory!!

Big Bang Theory. I love Sheldon!! But it was definitely hard to pick from this lot. The other polls were easier lol.

A lot of the comedies are cute and I love them, but I laugh out loud consistently at Modern Family. Glee is a close second.

Sonia: I agree about The Office. I wanted to vote for it but this season has been... meh. Scott's Tots was PAINFUL to watch and Jim/ Pam isn't exciting anymore :( I heart Glee.. it's so silly and happy. 30 Rock is great and Parks and Rec has really found its voice. Amy Poehler is hilarious.

Sonia, not sure if you've heard this before, but just a suggestion: If you decided to watch HIMYM, I would strongly recommend renting the first few seasons and trying to watch the episodes in order (as much as possible). I've known people who tried to get into it this season or last and couldn't because a lot of the ongoing jokes just didn't make sense to them. (I'm guessing this is what you were planning on doing anyway, but I just wanted to put the suggestion out there.)

Community has made me laugh the most this year. It has my vote. The show is actually funny without being overly offensive or crass. There is just so much chemistry between all the characters so it's not just the jokes or gags that make the show work. I love it. Check out the Halloween episode. I used to really like the Office but Michael Scott has just gotten more ignorant and mean to the point where I can't stand to watch scenes with him. IE the ep with Scotts Kids. Eeep. I heard great things about HIMYM, Modern Family, & Glee and am looking forward to watching them :)
