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. 

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is basically synonymous with Fox, so it's unsurprising he also brought them The Orville. While the critics are not terribly fond of this new Fox series, it's doing phenomenally well ratings-wise. In addition to the ever-popular Family Guy, other Fox animated series include Bob's Burgers and - of course - The Simpsons. 

If you prefer live action, Fox has drama series like 9-1-1, The Resident, and The X-Files. Fox has also brought funny sitcoms to the primetime airwaves, such as Last Man Standing.

With so many Fox programs currently airing, including new Fox shows in 2019, 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!
