Network: Comedy Central
Stars: Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine, Anders Holm, Maribeth Monroe, Jillian Bell, Kyle Newacheck, Erik Griffin
It may be an acquired taste, but Comedy Central’s Workaholics quietly brought more funny to the airwaves in 2011 than all of CBS’ ratings killers combined. The ultimate slacker comedy, the brainchild of YouTube stars turned TV headliners Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine, and Anders Holm covers familiar ground for anyone who’s stuck in an Office Space-like job that excites them less than midget porn: bored (and usually drunk or stoned) nine-to-fivers causing mischief at work and plotting to do dumb shit once it’s time to clock out.
Though, chances are you’re nowhere near as hilarious as the Workaholics crew. When you vow to stop drinking for a week after suffering from a catastrophic hangover, it’s a downer; when Anderson, DeVine, and Holm resist open bottles, the collectively self-imposed shutdown is a riot.
