Don’t Move To New York City Based Solely On What You See On TV: A User’s Guide

July 28th, 2014 2:00pm EDT
Don’t Move To New York City Based Solely On What You See On TV:
As a born and bred New Yorker, I’m drawn to shows about my city, taking comfort in the familiar sights and settings; yet I often find myself asking, “Did the writers of some of these shows ever step foot in Manhattan?”

I can shake off the inconsistencies, but I sometimes wonder about all the people saving their babysitting and paper route money hoping to someday move to the Big Apple hoping to mirror the glamorous life seen on the small screen.

Hence, a guide to separating fact from fiction:

‘Smash’ only lasted two seasons, but it was long enough to get your hopes up that moving here wo...

Mad Men
Summer television has the unfair reputation of being the dumping ground for shows "not ready" for the fall or spring, or where offbeat series never take off or go to die. While shows have certainly been banished to the warmer months, dozens of classic shows either got their start or existed entirely in the summer.

Survivor

Reality TV existed before Survivor, but its success on CBS as a Summer show opened the door to every and any kind of reality TV... for better or worse. It was featured on the cover of TIME magazine and was one of the highest rated shows on television for its first ele...

It's only been ten years since the last episode of Sex and the City aired on HBO, but Sarah Jessica Parker says women have already changed too much to emulate the relationships portrayed in the show.

She was a deeply devoted friend, and I think women really respond to that kind of connection. I think we all want it, we all work towards having it, and we’re not always the very best friends we can be."
