But it was not such good news for Mrs Brown’s Boys, which was named both worst comedy of the year, and worst sitcom.
Readers of the British Comedy Guide alto heaped scorn on the animated Ricky Gervais Show (worst entertainment show), Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps (worst returning sitcom), Lee Nelson's Well Good Show (worst sketch show) and Celebrity Juice (worst panel show).
