Shows like Homeland: Best Showtime Shows

Over 500 scripted TV series were produced in the US in 2019, but quantity does not guarantee high quality. Showtime, like HBO, has consistently produced outstanding television for years. This list rounds up some of the network's greatest hits (and a few misses).

The ancient Greeks divided their plays into comedies and tragedies, but the smiling and frowning masks are more extremes of a spectrum than binary variables, and some of the best TV shows of the past two decades, like Fleabag, Atlanta, Succession, and Shameless, find humor in deep pain and poignancy in funny situations.

Shows Like I'm Dying Up Here: The Roots of an Industry

These period dramas focus on the roots of modern industries, from fashion, to stand up comedy, professional wrestling, music, and advertising.

Shows Like Feud: Dramas with Women in Charge

Politicians, professionals, CEOS, and queens command this list of contemporary dramas with strong female leads.

Series featuring Unlikable Characters

Shows Like Good Girls Revolt: The Swinging Sixties

Plenty of sex, and drugs, and rock and roll in this eclectic list of 21st century dramas set in the 60s and 70s, curiosity for some, nostalgia for others.

Shows Like Louie: TV Series about Stand-Up Comedians
