What is the Most Popular Television Show Set in Texas?
Looking at the multitude of television shows set in the Lone Star State, which do you think is the most popular?
Compiling watchlist data from their users, TV Guide has created their list of the most popular television show set in each state. For some states, its pretty obvious, like the new 'Hawaii Five-0' ruling in Hawaii, and the most popular comedy, 'Big Bang Theory', and drama, 'NCIS', getting top rankings in their respective settings, California and Washington D.C.. However, there was some leeway given to a few states, where the most popular show isn't primarily set there, but an episode was.
But when we get down to the most popular show from Texas, a great deal of people will be crying serious foul. Texas-synonymous shows like 'King of the Hill', 'Friday Night Lights', and 'Walker Texas Ranger' were strangely beat out by a mid-season replacement show on NBC that very few people heard of, was a remake of a Turkish TV show, and was cancelled during its first season in 2016.
