It’s been a hard morning for fans of HBO’s Veep, which was inexplicably snubbed by the Golden Globes in the Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy category. (Congrats, I guess, to Ryan Murphy‘s PR team for somehow landing a nomination for The Politician.) But on this week’s episode of EW’s Best of Shows podcast, Darren Franich and I count down the best comedies of the entire decade — and Veep (of course) makes my list. Two different HBO comedies land on Darren’s list (spoiler: One is Issa Rae‘s ode to millennial confusion, Insecure), while we each have a broadcast network sitcom on our list. (Spoiler: mine features a running joke about the “title of your sex tape.”)

To hear our full best comedies of the decade list press play below. You can also listen and subscribe to Best of Shows on Apple PodcastsStitcherRadio.com, or wherever you get your podcasts.
