Starting a new TV show has a way of setting off a chain reaction: You watch a show, you like it, you look for something else that actor is in, and you find yourself watching Yellowstone. And then you have to watch 1883! One show tends to lead to the next. If you're looking for new favorite shows that will remind you of your old favorite shows, you've come to the right place. TV Guide has put together countless lists of the best shows to watch based on the shows you already love. Some of our recommendations are similar in tone; some share the same creator or stars; and some will get you thinking about the same big ideas.
Below, you will find an alphabetized list of all of our current lists of recommendations based on shows you like.
