List RulesVote up the best scripted television shows that take place in and around Las Vegas.

If you love the possibility of wild times and weird moments then you must be feeling lucky because Las Vegas a very popular setting for a television series. It's not just that it's considered the place you go to do a bunch of things you will remember forever and talk about never - but Las Vegas Valley’s expansive reach includes endless possible unique locations to tell a tale. If you're from Las Vegas and are missing home or are curious about how this bustling city of commerce and impulse is portrayed on-screen, this list of the best shows set in Las Vegas can be your tour guide.

Vegas as a setting is almost a trope in and of itself. Las Vegas TV series, from dramas and sitcoms to procedurals, all seem to be obligated to have at least one token casino scene a season – but even underneath the glitz, they can accurately and interestingly depict the unique buildings, neighborhoods, and cultures that define Las Vegas. Shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation expand their view beyond the city itself, often delving into the harsh desert that surrounds the bustle. Other series, like GLOW and LA to Vegas, tell the stories of folks trying to make a living in and around a place that often feels built on artifice.

Which shows about Las Vegas should be at the top of the list? Vote up the best TV shows set in the Las Vegas area, then vote down the shows that don't deserve to be set in such a great place and add any great Las Vegas shows that are missing.
