Although you may not have often heard of This Is Us when it premiered in September, talk to any fan and they’ll gush about the show. If you missed the last couple of episodes, now is your time to catch up. The show just presented its midseason finale and is going on hiatus for a little while. For those looking for a way to fill the time, may we suggest these five shows perfect for filling the void? Whether you’re looking for more sentimentality or another show that focuses on many different lives, these are the five you should be queuing up right now.
