I may have missed a mention or two but I don't think any of these have been put forward yet:

Father Ted
The Day Today
Brass Eye
Charlie Brooker's Wipe series (screenwipe, newswipe, 2012wipe, etc)
Have I Got News For You (my favourite panel show, the odd dud episode but it's worth watching for Paul Merton alone, never mind Hislop, the guest hosts and some of the guests).
Never Mind The Buzzcocks (back when they weren't so keen to be polite to everyone)
TV Burp (got a little tired towards the end but there was some fantastic stuff on that show).
Being Human (the first few years at least)
Armstrong and Miller

And if anyone is interested in documentaries, check out Horizon. Some of the eps are of little interest to me but the space/physics/math themed ones are excellent IMO. Then there is anything with Sir David Attenborough and Prof. Brian Cox has done some good shows too.

Edit: Forgot Charlie Brooker's How TV Ruined Your Life
