Vote to save your favorite TV shows like, (clockwise from top left): "All Rise," "B Positive," "Mixed-ish," "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist" "The Unicorn" and "Young Rock."

It's time to save your favorite show.

USA TODAY's 24th annual Save Our Shows poll asks you to pick your favorites among 25 endangered sitcoms and dramas fighting for survival on the major broadcast networks. Don't worry: Fan favorites like "Grey's Anatomy" and "This Is Us" are safe, even if a contract or two needs signing.

But this year's list of series hovering "on the bubble" between renewal and cancellation includes a long-running comedy ("The Goldbergs"), a cult favorite ("Manifest"), newer entries ranging from Dwayne Johnson's "Young Rock" to "All Rise" and last year's winner, "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist," which won extraordinary support from a record 67% of 2020 respondents – and a second season. For some shows, it's simply too soon to tell how they'll perform: NBC's "Law & Order: Organized Crime" and CBS' "United States of Al" premiered only last week.

Also among this year's crop: ABC's "For Life," a drama based on the true story of Isaac Wright Jr., a wrongfully convicted Black man who became a jailhouse lawyer to help himself and others. "It's a relevant show that needs to be seen," says series star Nicholas Pinnock, who hopes for a third season. "There's more to the story; we're not finished yet." (But not for CBS' "MacGyver" remake, canceled after the poll was published; the drama will end its five-season run on April 30.)

Which will stay and which will go? You can have your say, for a limited time, before the networks make their own calls ahead of their 2021-2022 schedule announcements in mid-May.

Choose your favorites.
