For my comedy class, our main project will be writing an episode of an already existing, on the air right now comedy.
I need suggestions. It can't be the Office, that's overdone. And that's almost all I watch in terms of comedies.
Help me. (Can't be Curb Your Enthusiasm either, that might be done).

Scrubs and Weeds is a good idea. How about entourage?

Samantha Who? is surprisingly funny and will definitely be back on the air. That would be a fun one to do.

Thanks for all the suggestions so far, they're great. I definitely have some shows I have to check out. One thing to keep in mind, my instructor was a head writer for shows like Night Court and Family Matters (and thinks that Steve Urkel is a comic genius) so he really likes the old school traditional sitcom. I think that leaves out stuff like Entourage and Weeds. Not sure though.
I'm also considering Hannah Montana. The characters on that show are really fun, and it's a traditional family sitcom.

My Name is Earl

that's so funny that was actually one of the first things that came to mind but i forgot to name it.

are you saying Steve Urkel ISN'T comedic genius? I mean, just look where his career has gone...

its always sunny in philly definitely doesn't fall under the tradition sitcom. how i met your mother would be your best choice from my list.
also, 30 rock

my name is earl would be fun fun fun. suite life of zach and cody would be torture.

jason, let us know what show you decide to use. and maybe a summary of your episode.

Coupling isn't on the air anymore. I looked it up, it went from 2000 to 2004. but that would have been a great choice.
I'll throw in another vote for It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.

Carpoolers. 4 guys who commute together in a Prius to work every day in California. One of the characters actually looks like he is based on Steve Urkel grown up.
