Comedy has been the centerpiece of television for decades and networks and producers are constantly on the lookout for the next big hit. Sometimes it can be hard to predict the success of a comedy series because it can be less about the show itself and more about the cast chemistry and delivery of the humor. Casting the right people to fit into each role is a difficult and very important cast but especially for comedies where the humor has to be delivered perfectly, and it is safe to say that all of these shows had an amazing casts, some were just better than others. Here are 12 of the most popular comedy series cast ensembles ranked from worst to best:

12. Sex and the City

There is no doubt that Sex and the City is one of the most iconic comedy series of the 2000s. It not only paved a new path by having four individual and strong female leads, but also by openly discussing the sex lives of the women as they navigated love and life in New York City. While each actress definitely played her part perfectly, in terms of comedy cast ensembles Sex and the City ranks last because, if we’re being honest, Samantha had the funniest lines along with Carrie, and Miranda and Charlotte were boring in comparison. They were a great group together, but when it comes to humor, some definitely outshone the others.

11. Will and Grace

Long before Modern Family, Will and Grace was setting new standards for TV sitcoms by being the first to have openly gay main characters. While the series was important and has become iconic, it hasn’t had the same staying powers of other comedies of its time. Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullaly and Sean Hayes had great chemistry, but the jokes didn’t always resonate the way they were intended and after awhile the same sort of humor from each character became a little tired. Now fans will have to see how things are changed and if it will be as good as it once was with the upcoming Will and Grace revival.
