A series focusing on a family of evangelists is an endless pit of drama and a brilliant idea for television series. So when it comes to HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones there is no question that it is one of the best HBO comedy series ever made, with its brilliant writing and genius actors, the series has garnered a massive fan following after the release of its first season, and now after a long wait we are getting to see the second season of the series and I am sure we will get the third, so while you wait for Season 3 to premiere pass your time watching these 10 shows that are quite like The Righteous Gemstones, just not exactly the same. The shows on this list are not ranked.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Synopsis: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia features Mac, Dennis, Charlie, Sweet Dee and Frank, five ne’er-do-wells who own and operate Paddy’s Pub in Philadelphia.

So prepare for more depraved schemes, half-baked arguments, and absurdly underhanded plots to subvert one another.
Synopsis: Power, politics, money…it’s all in the family in this provocative, funny series about a highly dysfunctional dynasty.

Synopsis: In The Office — a U.S. adaptation of the Ricky Gervais-led British original — characters at a paper company in Scranton, PA go ploddingly about their business under the watchful eye of an ever-present (and unseen) documentary crew.

And there’s Michael Scott, the clueless regional manager.

This hilarious Australian comedy tackles that question by following the Moody clan on Christmas Day over the course of several years.

They may not be like any family you know, but they make no apologies for being exactly who they are.
Eastbound & Down
Synopsis: As a baseball star, Kenny Powers had it all: money, fame, obsessed fans. But he threw it all away in a haze of hard-living and complacency.
