Shows like NCIS: The Police Procedural Parade

The list of police procedurals out there can seem endless, but if you're feeling overwhelmed just think of all the police officers who not only have to solve these crimes, but fill out the paperwork as well.

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 Psych: Lighthearted Detective Shows

If you like your private investigators and police detectives without a troubled past and a drinking problem, this is the list for you--with well-adjusted detectives and a cynicism-free vibe.

Shows Like Blue Bloods: Modern (ish) NYPD Dramas

Modern (ish) dramas following the New York Police Department as they bust crime across the five boroughs: Manhattan, The Empire State Building, New Jersey, Brooklyn, and Rhode Island? Also includes the occasional FBI agent stationed in the Big Apple.

Shows like Castle: Male Female Cop Partners

A twist on the classic buddy cop trope, where a man and woman team up to catch villains--the biggest mystery in these shows, however, is will they, won't they?

Good Cop, Non Cop

Not saying these lighthearted series are formulaic, but you can create your own by pairing an eccentric psychic, novelist, conman, anthropologist, magician, etc. with a grizzled cop, private investigator, FBI agent.

RomCom TV

If a two hour romantic comedy is too short, these shows provide hours of RomCom binging pleasure.

Shows like Bones: Lighthearted Buddy Cop Shows

Sure they have badges and carry guns, but these dynamic police duos do not take themselves too seriously.
