Recommend some non-violent TV

Season 4 of Game of Thrones was brutal, full of death and gore. Now we're watching Penny Dreadful, True Blood, Fargo and catching up on Hannibal, Dexter and Vikings. All of this is enjoyable, but the violence and gore has become a bit rote and unnerving. Recommend some lighter tv stuff, please.

Lighter TV fare we're previously enjoyed: Lilo and Stich, Big Band Theory,Archer, Arrested Development, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Mindy Project (Don't ask), New Girl, Girls, Brooklyn 99, Parks & Recreation, Community, Happy Endings. Lighter Fare we haven't enjoyed: Venture Bros, Veep, Enlightened, Eastbound and Down, Entourage. Hung was ok. Louis CK is ok.
Please, NO BRITISH COMEDIES, 'cause ugh, British comedy. Same thing with Dancing with the Stars, American Idol or anything like that.
Special Note: LOVE the HBO comedy Getting On, for its dry humor and no laugh track. Reno 911 was a similar love.
