Watching an on screen family can be hilarious. That's why every comedy has some family aspect to it. The most common elements in everyday life can provide comedic gold, even if it has the family being pitted against each other. But what about the shows that aren't supposed to be funny? Suddenly that line about a brother sleeping with his sister's best friend takes on a whole darker meaning. Then we have to sit through a few seasons of the siblings trying to get back at one another through any way they can. After the manipulation, backstabbing and humiliating moments subside, it's hard to imagine how these brothers and sisters can still call themselves family. Of course, most of these families on this list are so messed up, a sibling rivalry is the least of their concerns.
