When we think of New York City, we think of taxi cabs, sure, but we also think of 30 Rock. Here's a rundown of 38 U.S. cities, plus Washington, D.C., and our favorite TV shows for each.

We could've said Better Call Saul, but we're going with Breaking Bad because it has the best of both worlds: Bryan Cranston and Bob Odenkirk.

Yes, the Georgia capital is home to Tyler Perry (House of Payne) and zombies (The Walking Dead), but Donald Glover's new comedy gets our vote for being "one of the best and most surreal shows on television."

Cheers, Rizzoli & Isles and any number of Boston-titled series (Boston Legal, Boston Public, Boston Med, etc.) have all been set in Beantown, but we have a soft spot for the wistful, wacky comedy-drama that aired from 1992 to 2002 and made Calista Flockhart a star.
