List Rules Shows on TV or streaming that are either in season or expected to return - vote up the best shows that are appropriate and enjoyable for kids and adults to watch together.

This list of 2016-2017 family-friendly TV shows will help parents and their children find all kinds of television series that everyone can watch together. With all the crudeness on television for adults and all of the cheesiness on television for kids, these family friendly TV shows strike a nice balance for audiences of all ages. People can stream or watch any show on this list because they are all current, appropriate for everyone, and expected to return for more seasons. Current shows for families are hard to find these days. 

Luckily this list includes the Disney XD shows that adults actually enjoy, the network sitcoms that are appropriate for kids, and harmless but fun reality shows that are entertaining for all. Some of the educational programming can be just as intriguing for adults, like the new Cosmos series with Neil deGrasse Tyson, while a show like Girl Meets World might be a nice throwback for parents who recall the first iteration. Similarly, nerd dads and geeky kiddos will all love Star Wars Rebels!
 
Current shows for families are often centered around families, such as The Goldbergs on ABC, while other family friendly TV shows are centered around parenting, like ABC Family's Baby Daddy . Family television also includes a variety of live action series like Switched at Birth, animated series, and even puppets (like on The Muppets).
