Who’s the Funniest Woman on TV?

by on July 15, 2011

We tackled the funniest man on TV on Thursday, so now let’s talk women. The list probably needs to begin with Jane Lynch (hosting the 2011 Emmys), and then include some combo of these individuals: Tina Fey (ah, the ol’ standby), Amy Poehler, Kaitlin Olson, Ellen DeGeneres, Chelsea Handler, Alison Brie (quelle scandale ), Susie Essman, Betty White (don’t hate on Hot in Cleveland), Kristen Wiig, and yes, another from the Bridesmaids set: Melissa McCarthy, now minted as an Emmy nominee to boot. (I’d consider tossing Alyson Hannigan in here, because her Lily is pitch-perfect most of the time.)

Who you got, nerds? Bossy Pants, Sweet Dee, Lately, or someone completely different?
