During the holidays, everyone wants to stay cheery and free from stress and bad moods, but there’s almost always a point when it just gets to be too much. If that happens to you, don’t resort to mountains of happy pills and red wine. (Pass those on to me.) A much better way to add happiness and laughter to your day is catching up on some of the best 2014 comedies that you may not have seen the first time around.

Comedies on TV (and now on streaming services) almost always get lower ratings than dramas, because they rarely have the same must-watch-live motivations that shows like Breaking Bad and The Good Wife have. Plus, comedies are much easier to repeat ad nauseum, which makes them easier to catch up on at a later date. Like now, with these 10 comedies you should already be watching. (Note: most of the ratings data found online is assumedly lower than more concise data, but even with that in mind, these series are still underwatched.)

The Comeback
Ever since HBO’s The Comeback left the network in 2005, it has accumulated a sizeable cult fandom who seemingly wanted nothing more than to see Lisa Kudrow’s self-obsessed Valerie Cherish get into more awkward Hollywood-lite shenanigans. But here we are, in the back half of the “how did this even happen?” second season, and far less than half a million people are tuning in when it airs live. C’mon, people! We’ve got non-aggravating Seth Rogen and an endlessly dark and cleverly post-modern look at fame and the TV industry. You DO need to see that.

You can find both Season 1 and the as-yet-unfinished Season 2 on HBO Go.
