Sitcoms are everybody’s cozy blanket that they can watch every time they are feeling down and many shows like Friends and The Big Bang Theory have mostly provided laughs for us but sometimes these are also the shows that made us cry. While Sitcoms are a dying breed now as they are becoming more and more dramedies than comedies, here are some sitcoms that made us cry even though they were mainly about a laugh.
Synopsis: This is a show about love and sex, careers, and a time in life when everything is possible … about the search for commitment and security … and the fear of commitment and security. Most of all, it’s about friendship–for when you’re young and single in the city, your friends are your family.
Synopsis: Set in the small fictitious town of Tambury, the show follows Tony, a writer for the local newspaper whose life is upended after his wife dies from cancer.

Synopsis: ABC’s Scrubs examines the lives of the staff at Sacred Heart.

Around here, humor and tragedy collide as they continually learn that even when you figure out who you are, there’s still more life to navigate and it helps to have good people in your corner…even if they are a bit scattered themselves.
The Big Bang Theory
Synopsis: Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of “beautiful minds” that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women. All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny moves in next door.

However, Leonard sees in Penny a whole new universe of possibilities … including love.

Helping him in his quest to find his future wife is Barney, a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous opinions, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women.
