With Fox shows consistently killing it in the ratings, and new Fox programs coming out each season, it's hard to decide which shows are the best of the best when it comes to the network that brought you The Simpsons. Out of all the current Fox shows, which ones stand out to you as the highest quality? From drama to comedy to cartoons, Fox programming has something for everyone. This Fox shows list tries to cover it all. 

With the popularity of 9-1-1, it's no surprise that 2020 brought a spin-off with 9-1-1: Lone Star, starring Rob Lowe. If procedural drama isn't what you're looking for in a Fox series, there are no shortage of animated sitcoms, such as the ever-popular Family Guy, Bob's Burgers and - of course - The Simpsons. 

If you do prefer live action, Fox has drama series like Prodigal Son, The Resident, and Deputy. Fox has also brought great game shows to the primetime airwaves, such as The Masked Singer.

With so many Fox programs currently airing, including new Fox shows in 2020, how can you determine the best? Vote up your favorite comedies, dramas, or cartoons, and vote down anything you feel is subpar. Help decide which programs are the best Fox shows on now!
