50 Channels and Nothing On

with 6 comments

Following up on the 50 movies for the 50 states map, here’s the 50 states of television. I’m not in love with Baywatch for California, though I see the logic—and I have to agree with kittens for breakfast that Breaking Bad is really the only possible choice for New Mexico.

It’s also interesting that how much more region- and city-specific the television map seems—or rather how much more obvious this map makes intrastate divisions. Seinfeld‘s a great choice for New York City, but not at all for Albany or Buffalo—and there other places in Maryland besides Baltimore/The Wire

  4. What??? No “Hello, Larry” for Oregon? But they even name-dropped Portland in the theme song!

  5. Twin Peaks, WA

    It may not be real, but it was Washington and not Seattle
