Art is hardly ever wholly original, and that's okay. Artists commonly borrow ideas from each other, or coincidentally come up with similar ideas at the same time. As a result, it isn't uncommon to see two similar television shows pitted against one another, or to see programs forced to make drastic changes from their initial season in order to separate themselves from the pack of competitors.
Execution is everything, though, and it's amazing how a near-identical concept can be taken in vastly different directions. In that spirit, here are some TV comedies and their dramatic counterparts that shared the exact same premise, but managed to pull it off with wildly different - but successful - tones.
