Perfectly bingeable, perfectly funny.
Even seven seasons and 138 episodes weren’t enough to leave fans of 30 Rock from not wanting more. Yet as these things go, most of us will have to make do by finding new shows like 30 Rock to enjoy instead. That’s a tall task—after all, there’s no beating the surefire duo of SNL alums Tiny Fey and Alec Baldwin. But at least we can still promise hilarious pairs and ensembles in the options below.
What ties these following TV comedies together is in no small part owed to Tina Fey’s brand of fast-witted comedy. Whether these series’ showrunners would care to admit it or not, 30 Rock had an indelible impact on comedy as we know it thanks to Fey’s keen ear for fast-paced jokes and unflinching satire. For more shows that took a nod from 30 Rock’s incessantly hilarious energy, check out the options below.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (3 Seasons) It’s only fair that we kick things off with another series helmed by Tina Fey. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stars The Office’s Ellie Kemper as Kimmy, a woman who escapes a cult after being stuck in a bunker for years. She makes it to New York City to live alongside Titus, the ultimate gay diva—and their antics are as heartwarming as they are hilarious.

Stream ‘Veep’ on Hulu With HBO $26.98 buy it Difficult People (3 Seasons) Executive-produced by Amy Poehler, Difficult People is a Hulu hidden gem that’s as cringe-worthy as it is endearing. Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner star as a clueless couple trying to make ends meet in New York City, with no sense of how to navigate its social scene without getting themselves into a mess.
Stream ‘Difficult People’ on Hulu $9.99 buy it Strangers With Candy (3 Seasons) Think of Strangers With Candy as the grown-up version of Nickelodeon’s Special Delivery—an adult spoof on the after-school special. Amy Sedaris is a gem in this easy-to-binge series.
Stream ‘Strangers With Candy $14.49 buy it Happy Endings (3 Seasons) While Happy Endings didn’t get its own happy ending due to a premature cancelation, what this means for viewers is a quick weekend on the couch to meet its cast. Happy Endings features a raucous group of friends torn apart after The Couple of the crew—Dave and Alex—don’t get hitched as planned.
