What current sitcoms do you like from which channels?

Sitcoms still in production broadcast on British TV. (September 2019)

Following the end of Benidorm last year ITV have now confirmed the axing of Birds of a Feather and Bad Move, meaning for the first time in it's history there are no plans for any sitcoms on the main ITV channel this year.

Not to worry though - ITV's exec Kevin Lygo says "Audiences can get their fix of character-based comedy from Coronation Street."

A real shame IMO - especially Bad Move which I thought was quietly beginning to establish itself and for me offered a bit of a hidden gem with their Christmas special. "Quiet" and "hidden" aren't what ITV need though.

The promise of sitcoms regularly at 8.30pm on Thursdays never materialised much further than Birds of a Feather. It's a shame they don't see the comedy in Corrie as motivation to try more in the filler slot on Wednesdays rather than an excuse to ditch it completely.

I like Timewasters on ITV2, I'm not sure if there's going be a third series, but that's a sitcom on ITV2.

Sorry, this isn't vaguely presentation related and not worthy of it's own thread.
