This Is Us confirmed what we all already know: There’s no drama like family drama. With its tremendously rich characters and unexpected plot twists, the NBC show has been manipulating its viewers into shedding tears since the last scene of the first episode.
Given this unfortunate fact, you may be looking for an equally dramatic, family-centric show that manages to fill the This Is Us void come Tuesday. While none of these shows feature Jack Pearson, a lot of them come pretty darn close. In each, you’ll find a large ensemble cast and no shortage of familial pain and happiness. On your marks, get set, binge.
