Shows like NCIS: The Police Procedural Parade

Shows Like Feud: Dramas with Women in Charge

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

Shows Like Burn Notice: Crime Shows That Don't Take Themselves Too Seriously

These crime and police procedurals mix genuine thrills with just the right amount of lighthearted banter, reeling you in without leaving you too depressed to finish your dinner. The USA network is well represented.

Shows Like Scotty & Bailey: Badass Female Cops

Detectives with two X chromosomes and no sympathy for lawbreakers populate this list of crime dramas, perfect for showing little girls they can be whatever they want to be, including major badasses.

Shows Like Line of Duty: Get Inside Police Politics

Best Drama TV

Since the Sorpranos ushered in the Golden Age of television in 1999, networks and streaming services have launched thousands of English language drama series--this list rounds up the crème of the crop that stand out in terms of audience ratings, popularity, and critical acclaim.

Shows like Line of Duty: Interrogation Room Police Dramas

Many cop shows feature a scene or two inside the interrogation room, but these dramas make them the center of the action--these shows are more psychological thrillers than typical police procedurals--and Line of Duty is the best of the lot.

Shows like NCIS: Acronym, Colon, City Crime Shows

We're not saying these police procedurals are formulaic, but they do have pretty similar titles and all feature an ensemble cast of suspiciously good looking police officers, a strong emphasis on the process of catching bad guys, and a sense of place.
