I want to see the comedy animes from most to least popular, but when I choose to sort by genre, it defaults to alphabetical and doesn't seem to give an option for sort by most popular/highest rating. Am I missing something or is this just not a feature?

CR just recently partnered with Anime Planet, could be just for reasons like this, since you are correct, you can't do both filters at the same time here... AP has a searchable database, where you can first browse by tag (comedy), and then click the Rank column to get the highest rated shows, rated on AP, of course, so it will return results not always available here, and you'll still have to do a search or compare to the alpha list here /videos/anime/alpha?group=all to see if it is available.

Another site you might check is animenewsnetwork.com which has what it calls an "encyclopedia" instead. You will likely get different results, since the rankings there aren't necessarily the same on both sites.

As to the worth of either one, or even any rankings you may find here, I wouldn't take any of it too seriously. Everyone has their own subjective values, so just limiting yourself to the highest ranked shows will cause you to miss some good viewing in the long run, but if you haven't watched very much, it's probably as good a place as any to start.
