Entertainment The Greatest TV Shows About Businesses

While it may not seem on the surface that TV shows about businesses are interesting, there are actually a few shows about the goings on of corporate America—and some are quite entertaining. Business series like AMC's Mad Men may be about running an advertising agency in the 1960s, but the real story behind the success of the series revolves around the interesting characters spread throughout the show. Nevertheless, plenty of great workplace TV shows focus on things other than business while still incorporating themes and scenarios of the daily grind and even what it takes to run one.

Simply put, there are dozens of good shows about corporations, family businesses, and various companies involving pretty much anything imaginable. If you're interested in seeing what happens when a group of tech nerds create a product worth marketing in Silicon Valley or your preference falls behind legal issues on shows like Suits, you can find plenty to watch related to business. Of course, you can't forget classic series like Cheers, not to mention one of the greatest shows about work and business as usual, The Office.
