Only A TV Nerd Can Name The Cities Where These TV Shows Took Place

When we think of New York City, we think of taxi cabs, sure, but we also think of shows like Friends, Seinfeld, 30 Rock, and Sex and the City.

It takes more than just a few establishing shots to make a city truly come alive on television; it takes time, effort, and a determination to make the setting as much a part of the story as the human characters. Some of the most memorable TV shows in recent history were defined by their cities in a huge way. A good way to tell how big a role a given city plays in a TV series is to imagine the story taking place somewhere else; if the move seems impossible or even just weird, or if it would fundamentally change the nature of the stories, chances are the show is one that was totally married to its location.

Here are some TV shows set in various cities in the U.S. and U.K. Can you identify the main cities where these TV series took place?
