As if any other comedy could top our list of the funniest shows on Netflix. Schitt’s Creek is the show of the moment and will be quite some time. After rising in popularity, thanks in part to streaming on Netflix, and winning a slew of top honors, the little show that could and did has definitely staked its claim as a modern classic, a show worth laughing with again and again.

Schitt’s Creek centers on the privileged Rose family, who find themselves in a real riches to rags story as they land in the titular small town when their fortune is stripped from them. The series joins the family on their journey to acclimating to their new life with the help of colorful characters and a sense of humor that’s uniquely attuned to this crazy little world.

In a time when shows and stories are getting darker, having Schitt’s Creek be a reliably delightful light shouldn’t be taken for granted. Few shows have committed to portraying acceptance and tolerance, among other amazing qualities, quite like this one. We struck gold with Schitt’s Creek and gave the right show a chance to make an impact. There might not be anything funnier, or more inspiring for that matter, on Netflix.
