10. Cheers

Seasons Available: 11

The 1982 Sitcom Cheers takes place in a Boston bar from 1982 to 1993. Over the years viewers got to know the lives of both the regulars and the employees extremely well. Cheers is regarded as an absolute classic full, of friendly, but slightly depressing faces who all know your name. Even after all these years, there is absolutely nothing wrong with going on Hulu and giving a few episodes a re-watch, especially seeing as all 11 seasons are available.

6. Rick and Morty

Seasons Available: 2

Since its creation by Justin Rolland and Dan Harmon; Rick and Morty has quickly become a pop culture bomb picking up millions of dedicated fans since 2013.

The 5 time Golden Globe-winning show is a sophisticated drama suitable for any Crime, Drama lover.

3. Family Guy

Seasons Available: 16

Family Guy is just one of those shows where you either love it, or hate it. And luckily for Seth MacFarlane, a lot of people absolutely adore this animated sitcom parody. The show follows a dysfunctional family (to say the least) who’s everyday life consists of constant crazy scenarios. Peter Griffin is the ignorant, immature dad paired with a stay-at-home wife Lois and their three completely different and troublesome children. All 16 seasons are available to stream, so even if you don’t like the later stuff, you can always go back and watch some of the old classic seasons.

2. Fargo

Seasons Available: 2

Fargo is a crime/thriller that takes place in the snowy state of Minnesota.

The show is amazingly produced and we can’t wait to see season three arrive on our screens.

1. Seinfeld

Seasons Available: 9

Our top spot for this month goes to the 1989 comedy classic ‘Seinfeld’. A show where Jerry Seinfeld plays himself venturing through everyday life alongside his friends in New York city. Upon its debut, the show quickly rose to huge success and even now, 19 years since the show finished it’s still often regarded as one of the best comedy sitcoms, and still holds a place in many peoples hearts. Despite the show’s clever writing and character development, the main reason Seinfeld made our number one spot is because of how relevant and popular it has stayed after so long. A total of 171 episodes are currently available to stream on Hulu.
