Everything is bigger in Texas and that holds true when it comes to television series as well. It's not just that Texas offers both big cities and cowboys - but the Texan love of football and the drama of oil money also makes it a great setting for shows. If you're from Texas and are missing home or are curious about which Texan cities, like Houston, are portrayed on-screen, this list of the best shows set in Texas can be your tour guide.

Most Texas shows are set in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, most notably Dallas and its eponymous reboot in 2012. Even the more general idea of "Texas" such as Walker, Texas Ranger, is located in Dallas-Fort Worth. Almost as popular as the two big cities are imaginary small Texas towns. Both Friday Night Lights and King of the Hill take place in fictional cities.
