Variety shows may seem like something from the late mid-century but that's just because they've evolved along with the TV audiences of 2019. The best variety shows of 2019 include talk shows and talent shows along with the classic sketch comedy shows that are often associated with variety shows. This list looks at the best current television variety series that that will be airing new episodes in 2019.  Which are the best new and returning variety shows in 2019?

Some of the best variety shows of 2019 are those that have been going on for a long time or have recently returned to the air, such as Saturday Night Live and Showtime at the Apollo, respectively. Other variety shows are absolutely the kind born in the 21st century, like Adult Swim's Mostly 4 Millennials, or At Home with Amy Sedaris, which is weird, wonderful and not at all on a standard channel.
