Fox already settled on its drama lineup for the 2013-2014 season, and now the network has ordered a crop of new comedy series. Four new half-hour sitcoms are joining New Girl, The Mindy Project, Raising Hope, and the already picked-up Dads.

The new shows include Seth MacFarlane’s Dads, Britcom remake Us & Them, the Christopher Meloni-starring Surviving Jack, the Andy Samberg-starring Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and the military-themed Enlisted. Which one sounds like your new favorite? Here’s a quick overview of the new shows. Share your initial thoughts in the comments.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Comedy nerds, you’re gonna like this one for several reasons. First, it comes from the producers behind Parks and Recreation, Dan Goor and Michael Schur. Second, it stars the always hilarious Andy Samberg and the incredibly nice (but also super intimidating) Andre Braugher. Third, the premise is inherently funny: the two men play a smartass detective and uptight boss in a remote New York City precinct full of screw-ups. Hijinks will most definitely ensue.

Dads
This live-action sitcom from Seth MacFarlane was ordered straight to series and stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as two BFFs whose annoying dads move in with them.

Enlisted
A Type-A military man (Geoff Stults) moves to the small Florida Army base where his dimwitted and under-achieving brothers serve alongside a troop of misfits. The show comes from s co-creator Kevin Biegel.

Surviving Jack
Law & Order: SVU
vet Christopher Meloni shows off his hilarious side (which you already know about if you’ve seen him in one of his many memorable comedic turns — Wet Hot American Summer, etc.) in this father-son comedy based on Justin Halpern‘s semi-autographical book I Suck at Girls.

Us & Them
Yes, it’s another British remake (insert groan here), this time of the popular short-lived comedy Gavin and Stacey. Just as in the original version, the comedy follows a new couple (played here by Gilmore Girl Alexis Bledel and Jason Ritter, who just romanced Bledel’s onscreen mom, Lauren Graham, on Parenthood) and their outrageous BFFs.
