When Jess moved in an apartment with Nick, Schmidt and Coach, we were served a new easy-going, much relatable story of the people in their early 30s and their struggles in life. While there are critically acclaimed and rather intelligent comedies like ‘Veep’, ‘Arrested Development’, ‘Modern Family’, ‘Parks and Recreation’, ‘The Office’, etc., every once in a while, we need a good old heart-warming, romance-filled sitcom. Zoey Deschanel’s ‘New Girl’ was exactly that. Here’s the list of TV shows similar to New Girl that are our recommendations. You can stream several of these shows like New Girl on Netflix or Amazon Prime or Hulu.
18. Privileged (2008)
With a little more semblance to ‘Gossip Girls’, yet bearing an equal number of differences, ‘Privileged’ revolves around Megan, an aspiring journalist whose world comes falling apart when she’s fired from her job. Enter Laurel, a wealthy, settled businesswoman who appoints Megan as the live-in tutor for her twin granddaughters – Rose and Sage, in Florida. As Megan decides to win them over with her charm, she’s also inundated with the riches of Palm Beach. Falling in love, complicated relationships, and Megan’s zealous attitude are the winning points of this now-discontinued TV show.

17. Glee (2009-2015)
A high-school musical teenage drama-comedy, ‘Glee’ revolves around the Glee Club, a high school show choir at the William McKinley High School based in Ohio. As the story progresses, the Glee club director Will takes it upon himself to restore the choir to its former glory, and the glee club members Rachel, Finn, Santana, Brittany trying to help Will’s cause while they and other members deal with the regular love, sex, and relationships triad among drug and alcohol abuse. Gradually, and as the narrative forwards to further seasons, Glee club begins its winning streak by conquering the sectionals and the regional competitions, while its members seemingly appear more evolved than they were in the previous seasons. If you’re into a musical, high-school “dramedy”, this one’s for you.
