If your second hand embarrassment is that bad then how do you watch anything ever?

Shockingly, there are a lot of things out there that don't rely on cringe humour to tell a story.

Wtf? I can't do second hand embarrassment either and I watch stuff all the time. It seems to be the foundation of American sitcoms and there have been some British comedies like that (the original Office, being the most obvious). But it isn't common in anything else I've ever seen, and even in the programmes that include it, it usually isn't every episode. We watch The Big Bang Theory a lot and I've only seen it in that a few times in something like 8? 9? 10? years.

The Office - and in particular, the British version/first couple seasons of the American version - have to be some of the most intensely cringe-humor-centric things ever made

... because not everything is like The Office? Not even all humor is like The Office.

I don't tend to watch comedies because of the second hand embarrassment issues I have. I only enjoy comedies like Better Off Ted because that humor tends not to be cringe humor. I appreciate that others like it, but it so isn't for me.

The Office is one of the most second-hand embarrassment inducing things I've ever watched.

I managed to get through iirc half of the first episode of The Office before I had to watch something else. It was just too much, I have a very hard time handling second hand embarrassment and humiliation-based humor.

But, shockingly enough, few comedies rely on that as the majority of their humor! I mean, to name just a few of the vast slew of shows that don't rely on it as a staple, there's HIMYM, The IT Crowd, Big Bang Theory, Parks & Rec, Brooklyn 99, The Simpsons, Futurama, That 70s Show, and King of the Hill.
