Here are the top five television shows of all-time that are based in Wisconsin.

Big Fan Of TV

I am not afraid to admit it. I am a TV junkie. If I have nothing to do during a weekend, I can just chill out in front of the screen all day and night. I would consider it a hobby. I have been that way since I was a kid. Now, it is great because there are so many choices. I always have favorite shows that I like to watch on a regular basis.


TV Shows Based In Wisconsin

Of course, there are many TV shows that take place in big cities like Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. The last place you would think of is a state like Wisconsin. It does not really come off as cool and hip like most programs. You would be surprised that there are several that call the "land of cheese" home. Maybe because viewers can relate better to more real-life situations.


My Favorite Shows

I have always been a big fan of sitcoms. I enjoy humor and want to laugh. I dislike shows that are sad or serious. I want an escape from reality. Plus, comedies are usually only thirty minutes long which is a nice short commitment. A few of my favorite shows were based in Wisconsin.

Sorry, "Happy Days," but "That 70's Show" took over the top spot for the best show based in Wisconsin. It took place in Point Place, Wisconsin. It reminded me of being a teenager, so I can really relate to it.
