The four shows made the shortlist in the category after a public voted on the long-list in December. Another vote is now being held to decide the overall winner.
Comedy shows nominated in other categories include Mock the Week and QI for the entertainment award (alongside Big Brother and I'm A Celebrity), Shameless for the drama award (alongside Doctor Who, Sherlock and Waterloo Road) and The Inbetweeners for the Digital Choice award (alongside Glee and Peter Andre: The Next Chapter).
January is a busy time for comedy-related awards. Yesterday, voting for The Comedy.co.uk Awards 2010 opened, the Chortle awards for stand-up launch at the end of the week, and the British Comedy Awards will be on Channel 4 on Saturday 22nd January.
