Describe A TV Program that Made You Laugh

You should say:

  • What program it is
  • How often you watch it
  • What it is about
  • And explain why you laugh at this program (= explain what is funny in this program)


A TV program that I found really funny was an American show called “How I met your mother” which was broadcast every Sunday last summer.

It was a sitcom with 9 series, each of which included about 24 episodes. I watched all of the episodes and found them absolutely hilarious. The series followed the main character, Ted, who recounted to his son and daughter the time when he met and got married to their mother. The special thing was this – all the events Ted had experienced with his best friends before meeting his wife were illustrated in a highly amusing way. For example, in one episode, Ted described his dates with a girlfriend whose name he had forgotten, so Ted and the other characters had to refer to her as “Blah-blah” all the time.

Because of the characters’ eccentric humor and natural acting, this show made me laugh a lot. So, at present, whenever I feel stressed, I replay this series so that I can just put my feet up and have a good laugh.
