What's the Best unknown (Non-major network) TV comedy?

Californication
Entourage
It's always sunny in Philadelphia
The Sarah Silverman Program
Top Gear
Testees
Weeds

For me it's
1) It's always sunny in Philadelphia (because I'm basically a sick puppy)
2) Weeds
3) Top Gear (great comedy and BEST Car show)
4) Californication
5) Testees (Rally growing on me because I'm basically a sick puppy)
6) The Sarah Silverman Program (I thought the 1st season was great, now her shtick is getting old)

I tend to watch all of the above.

I just purchased seasons 1 and 2 of always sunny today, this show is amazing. I have finally found something that tops seinfeld.

i like Weeds and Californication... although neither have sustained their first-season brilliance.

Sarah Silverman is only hilarious in 5 minute spurts. Always Sunny just feels like your average sitcom to me. Maybe I haven't watched it enough.

"I's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" hands down.
Silverman is godawful and Top Gear isn't that unknown considering its world exposure. The rest are on pay TV and I wouldn't pay to watch any of those shows.

Another vote for "Sunny" and this weeks "Testees" was like nothing I've ever seen before.

Of those it has to be Top Gear, as I have never heard of the other ones...

What's your definition of "unknown"? Aside from the fact that all of these shows aren't on the major networks, all of them are well publicized.

The fact they lie in the poll makes them non unknown.

Top Gear is quite fun.
