TV’s funniest moments

For decades, television has made us laugh.

Whether it was Lucy and her Vitameatavegamin commercial, Jack Tripper and his famous falls, or Johnny Carson and his Carnac the Magnificent bit, television has provided plenty of comic relief.

This Friday, June 1, the Museum of Television and Radio will count down TV’s Funniest Moments on FOX at 8 p.m. ET.

The two-hour special showcases the 30 funniest moments of television, according to the museum folks. Sitcoms, variety shows, and sketch shows are all included in the fun fest.

I haven’t seen the show yet, but from the official FOX description, it features clips from I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, All in the Family, Spin City, Mad About You, In Living Color and The Bob Newhart Show.

Some of my favorite funny TV moments are Friends’ Ross getting stuck in his leather pants, Elaine dancing on Seinfeld, and the J.D. and Turk's musical number “Everything Comes Down to Poo” on Scrubs.

What are some of your favorite funny TV moments? Feel free to share them in the comments below.Then, tune in Friday to see if they made the cut.

There is nothing greater than good old physical comedy. What Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keatan started still lives strong.
