The Top 20 TV Comedy Ensembles of All Time, Ranked
16. Arrested Development
There’s a reason why the Netflix revival of the series wasn’t quite as well-received as the original run: the whole cast wasn’t together! Shooting schedules prevented many of the returning cast members from working together and it hindered the series. But the first few seasons of the show were incredible solely due to the insane stuff these characters did and said together. The Bluths are a perfect comedy ensemble because they feel like a true family — dysfunctional and perpetually annoyed at each other. At the end of the day, though, they are always there for one another. If not for the lack of interaction between characters in the Netflix seasons, this series would rank a bit higher.
