Please recommend mindlessly relaxing American sitcoms to me along the lines of How I Met Your Mother, Community, New Girl, Happy Endings etc. I'm currently under massive amounts of stress and these are the only things that help me relax.

I am suffering intensely from stress at work and my only fail-safe method of relaxation is to come home and slump in front of the TV watching American sitcoms.
I don't want anything too clever, ironic, or mock-documentary-style. I just want to sit back and let it wash over me. I like the whole "group of well-lit attractive friends who always hang around in the same bar"-style of sitcom. I'd rather avoid laugh tracks. Out of the sitcoms I listed, I like New Girl best because the characters are quite sympathetic, so character-storylines that you can really get behind are a plus too.
Please don't recommend British comedies, I am in the UK and have a good knowledge of those already! I also don't really find them as relaxing as the American ones.
