giving Portlandia a try. even though i fell asleep i wasn't hating it. i thought it was good actually.

any others?

Check out Trailer Park Boys. I don't remember how I stumbled across this a couple of months ago. I had never heard of it. It was a big hit, apparently, on Canadian TV back in the first half of the 2000s. I'm about halfway through the run, and I'm loving it.

Of course, if you're looking for irreverent comedy, you're not going to do much better than It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Somebody described it as "Seinfeld on crack," which is pretty accurate.

I liked Don't Trust The B**** In Apt. 23 pretty well and it fits what you're looking for. The entire series (around 25 episodes) is on Netflix.

Nitpick: It's bated breath, as in "abated," not baited breath.
