I love it too (particullarly the first few series) but I don't think it's as good as the ones I mentioned (and you could also mention "Smith & Jones", "You Called M'Lord?", and "Crazy Train" as possible options).

Are there any good US comedies nowadays? I used to watch "Seinfeld" and "The Simpsons" but right now I don't think I watch a single US comedy. I believe "Frasier" is the most popular comedy in the US but I think it sucks. Is there some alternative?

That's weird. Have you ever watched "Not the 9 O'clock News" or the third/fourth series of "The Black Adder"? They are superb.
