Scrubs is one of the most heartfelt comedy series out there. The medical comedy-drama starts with J.D. (Zach Braff), an intern on his first at a hospital filled with eccentric staffers, jaded and mean superiors, and his best friend Turk (Donald Faison). Throughout the series, J.D. goes through many hilarious and heartfelt moments and makes many relationships that are going to last a lifetime and some that end early. Scrubs aired its eighth and final season in 2009 (yes, I don’t Scrubs Season 9 as a part of the series) and since then the fans of the series have either been rewatching the series or missing it very much so we have prepared a list of the best shows that are like Scrubs that you might find worth your time.
Synopsis: From the distinct comedic point of view of Denis Leary and Bob Fisher, SIRENS follows three of Chicago’s best EMTs whose sometimes silly, self-righteous and even self-destructive personalities make them unqualified for sustaining relationships, friendships and most occupations.
Synopsis: The courageous men and women of Childrens Hospital – brilliant, egotistical, nymphomaniacal doctors all – do whatever it takes to save sick kids’ lives whether they deserve it or not. Led by resident clown doctor Blake Downs (Rob Corddry), the CH team will disrobe, do ecstasy, donate organs (except for the important one), or set up digs in a hospital bathroom. Show creator Corddry (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) stars with series regulars Malin Akerman (27 Dresses), Lake Bell (Boston Legal), Erinn Hayes (Parenthood), Rob Huebel (The Descendants), Ken Marino (Party Down), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Henry Winkler (Happy Days) and a slew of celebrity drop-ins.
The Mindy Project
Synopsis: The Mindy Project is a biting new single-camera comedy from Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling (“The Office”) that follows a woman who, despite having a successful career, is unlucky in love and desperately needs to get her personal life back on track before her friends and colleagues are forced to stage an intervention. Funny, impatient and politically incorrect, Mindy Lahiri (Kaling) can quote every romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan that exists. She loves the good ones and the bad ones, because the girl always gets the guy. Mindy is determined to be more punctual, spend less money, lose weight and read more books — all in pursuit of becoming a well-rounded perfect woman… who can meet and date the perfect guy.
Synopsis: Hugh Laurie stars as the brilliant, but sarcastic Dr. Gregory House, a maverick physician who is devoid of bedside manner.

Synopsis: From Dan Harmon (The Sarah Silverman Program) and Emmy Award-winning directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Arrested Development) comes Community, a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College.

With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work.
Parks and Recreation
Synopsis: From the people who brought you The Office comes Parks and Recreation, the hilarious saga of government employees and local citizens turning a neighborhood hole in the ground into a new public park. Comedy superstar Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live, Baby Mama) stars as Leslie Knope, an ambitious and hopeful small town government worker, whose dreams are way bigger than her political talents. Created by Primetime Emmy® Award winners Greg Daniels (The Office, King of the Hill, The Simpsons) and Michael Schur (The Office, SNL), and featuring a stellar ensemble cast, Parks and Recreation is a “genuinely funny comedy” (Daniel Carlson, Hollywood Reporter) about bureaucracy, hope and America at the dawn of the Obama age.
Synopsis: From Dan Goor and Mike Schur, producers of The Office and Parks and Recreation, comes the hilarious Golden Globe® Award-winning comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Synopsis: “Superstore” is a hilarious workplace comedy about a unique family of employees at big box megastore Cloud 9.

Back in the manager job is Glenn (Mark McKinney), who once again finds himself butting heads with aggressive assistant manager Dina (Lauren Ash), but is now assisted by Mateo (Nico Santos), who’s pretty sure he would be running things by now if it weren’t for his undocumented status.
