Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

TV fans, let's predict which 2017 fall comedies will actually be worth watching. With so many great TV shows premiering this year, we can also expect many new 2017 shows that will be canceled. From sci-fi to supernatural, the 2017 fall lineup of new comedies features TV's funniest stars, like Zach Braff, Glenn Howerton, Mindy Kaling, Seth MacFarlane, and more. Make your predictions for which new fall comedies will actually be funny. 

When it comes to new shows worth watching, Fox's Ghosted is a strong contender. Starring Adam Scott and Craig Robinson, the new sitcom follows two guys who investigate paranormal activities in LA. ABC's The Mayor and Fox's The Orville are other 2017 fall TV shows likely to be renewed. New 2017 fall comedy shows most likely to be canceled include CBS's 9JKL and ABC's Splitting Up Together.

Which upcoming shows are you most excited for? Curious to see how Jim Parsons grew up in The Big Bang Theory spinoff Young Sheldon?  Can't wait to see your favorite foursome return in the Will & Grace revival? 

Vote up the new fall comedies you think will make you laugh the most and vote down the shows you know will be canceled before 2018. This list of 2017 comedies comes with series premiere dates, first looks, promos, and trailers.
