This Map Shows The Most Popular TV Shows Set In Every State

We’ve already found the most famous book in every state. But what about your favourite shows?

Earlier this year, we ran a map from Reddit user SomeGuyFromCanada listing the most significant shows set in every state.

We weren’t happy with all of the selections (no “Breaking Bad” or “Happy Days”?) so we hit the books to discover the shows representative of our nation.

To qualify, we looked at television series as opposed to reality shows.* Selections were based on each show’s longevity, audience and critical acclaim using info from IMDB/Metacritic, awards, and lasting impact on American culture and television.

Obviously, some states (California, New York) were more difficult to choose than others.

Did we get your state right? Let us know in the comments if you have another selection.
