List Rules Only TV shows set in the wild west.

The very best western shows on TV feature horses, guns, dirt, crime, lassos, and more! This list of the greatest western shows, ranked best to worst, also includes pictures from the shows when available. Popular western TV shows have been a staple of television since the early days of the silver screen--some of the very first programs to gain popularity. So vote up your favorite western TV shows or add any that aren't already on the list.

Shows set in the Wild West have declined in popularity over the last few decades, but plenty of people still go back and watch reruns of shows such as Gunsmoke and Bonanza. One of the most popular shows of the last few years set in the west is Deadwood, which is about a mining town in the years after the Civil War. If it is one of your favorite western TV shows, then vote it up so more people will watch it. Eventually, it may lead to more Wild West TV shows being produced.

Many of the programs on this list of the best western TV shows are from decades past, and that needs to be changed. Let others know just how great TV shows set in the west are and hopefully more will be made. If you're just wondering what the best western TV shows are, then just look at the list below.
