Want a sneak preview of the new shows coming this fall of 2016? Wait no longer, these shows are hilarious and ready to tickle your funny bone in 2016. From new sitcoms to mockumentaries, this year's Upfronts had something for everyone. These shows have stars like Minnie Driver, Kristen Bell, and Joel McHale to keep you laughing.
New comedies come out every Fall season, though many don't even make it through the Spring (cough, Grandfathered). But hopefully the comedies on the list will make it several seasons! As that old saying from Community goes, "Six seasons and a movie!" While few new fall comedies make it that far, it sometimes happens. In fact, one of the most popular comedy mockumentary series of all time, The Office, started as a mid-season replacement TV show on NBC.
So which of the shows below do you think shows the most promise? Vote up your favorite new Fall comedy premiering in 2016. Then see what comedies are premiering in 2019.
