Ask TV Squad: Where can you find a list of shows with geographic names?

Melrose Place -- One of many geographical locationsTV Squad reader Kat Griffith asks us this interesting question:

I am trying to find a list of TV shows that have geographic names in their titles, I know of a few but was wondering if there is a list of shows out there somewhere.

Kat, we spent many hours on Google trying to find such a list, but no luck. However, if you are interested in a list of TV show settings you may want to order a copy of TV Land: A Guide to America's Television Shrines, Sets, and Sites, which is available for sale on amazon.com.

But, you're not looking for that type of information. So, as a public service to you, and our other rabid readers, here is a list of geographically-named shows that was compiled by the equally rabid staff of TV Squad writers. The list can be found after the jump.

What about Mr. Roger's Neighborhood? That's semi-geographical.

I thought there was a show called Fresno in the late 70s or early 80s.
