April Fool's Day is here - a time for pranks and hijinks with those closest to you! When the frivolity is done, what better way to celebrate than by enjoying some hilarious comedy courtesy of ABC and Freeform? Whether you're looking for a hot new series premiere like "Abbott Elementary" for some laughs, hoping to find a cozy films like "My Fake Fiancé" and "Pizza My Heart" to watch with the family, or wanting to binge-watch your favorite throwback sitcoms for the hundredth time, there's guaranteed to be something for everyone. Best of all, it's all free to watch - no joke! So grab the popcorn and warm up your funny bones as we highlight just some of the many great shows and movies available to watch this April Fool's Day.


Whatever your preference of comedy, there's sure to be something to pique your interest on ABC. If you're looking for a great workplace sitcom, then now is the perfect time to discover or re-watch the series premiere of "Abbott Elementary". From the mind of acclaimed author and comedian Quinta Brunson, the series follows five passionate elementary school teachers as they navigate Philadelphia's public school system and contend with their tone-deaf principal. If you want something that focuses more on family dynamics then you can check out the latest episodes of "The Goldbergs" or maybe even catch up on the final season of "black-ish" as we bid farewell to the Johnson family. 


Alternatively, if you want something a bit more familiar, you can also sit down and binge the first side-splitting seasons of "Samantha Who?" and "8 Simple Rules...". Or maybe you want some drama mixed in with your comedy, in which case be sure to check out the Golden Globe-winning "Ugly Betty". The full series is available too, letting you revisit the iconic Betty Suarez as she navigates the cut-throat and often superficial fashion world at Mode magazine in its entirety! 

Of course, sitcoms aren't the only thing that you can laugh along with on ABC, there's a plethora of other hilarious shows too! If you want to see groups of celebrities test their knowledge - or attempt do so at least - then check out "Celebrity Family Feud" and "Celebrity Wheel of Fortune". Or, if you want a dose of reality, you can watch the most recent season of "The Bachelor" in its entirety for a limited time, free with no sign-in needed!



There are also plenty of great comedies readily available on Freeform. If you're looking for a classic sitcom to sink your teeth into then you can watch full seasons of "Melissa & Joey" and "Baby Daddy" - totally free with no sign-in needed! If you want something with a little more edge, then you can jump right into the ruthless world of teen gymnasts with "Make It or Break It", as Kaylie, Payson, Lauren, and Emily compete to win a place on the national team and attend the Olympics.

If you'd prefer to watch a movie instead of binging yet another series then don't worry. There are also several great Freeform original movies readily available to stream for free. If you're in the mood for a light-hearted romantic comedy and can't get enough of the Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence combination, then look no further than the likes of "My Fake Fiancé". If you prefer your slice of romance to be a classic tale of star-crossed lovers, then there's also "Pizza My Heart", as the children of rival pizzeria owners fall in love in this modern spin on Romeo and Juliet. Alternatively, if you're in the mood for a fish-out-of-water style of comedy, you should check out "Crimes of Fashion", starring Kaley Cuoco as an aspiring fashion designer who finds herself as the head of a crime family after the passing of her estranged grandfather.

Whatever your plans this April Fool's Day, you can find all these movies, shows, and more on ABC and Freeform.
