TV Land – America Is LA, NY

A new study counts the settings for American TV shows and – no surprise – finds most fictional settings are in New York or Los Angeles. “Those two cities account for just under half of the fictional settings for prime-time television shows going back to 1948, according to a new study by a media agency. California and New York state are settings nearly 60 percent of the time — even though those states make up less than 19 percent of the nation’s population.”
