In Response To: TV Shows  Totally OT (Stick)
I am the wrong person to answer this. I can see that you are looking for light entertainment with an emphasis on sitcoms. My taste runs towards PBS, with an emphasis on documentaries. So, we’re not going to find much overlap.
In fact, a while back I canceled my cable TV. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed watching documentaries on the Internet.
Although these are not for everybody, I would like to recommend the following series that I have been watching recently.

18 hoursStarting with the ancient Greeks, we discuss Arab, Chinese and Hindu developments, polynomial equations and algebra, analytic and projective geometry, calculus and infinite series, number theory, mechanics and curves, complex numbers and algebra, differential geometry, topology and hyperbolic geometry. Meant for a broad audience, not necessarily mathematics majors. There are 17 lectures.

15 hoursThis Stanford Continuing Studies course is the first of a threequarter sequence of classes exploring "quantum entanglements" in modern theoretical physics. The course is taught by Leonard Susskind, the Felix Bloch Professor of Physics at Stanford University.
For “entertainment,” my idea is to watch college lectures in math and physics. I’m hopeless.
