About This Quiz

Could a Texan possibly prefer "Nashville" to "Friday Night Lights"? Does liking "CSI: Miami" better than "The Walking Dead" mean you're not a true Georgian? If you're totally obsessed with "The Vampire Diaries" and "Criminal Minds," should you just go ahead and move to Virginia?

In this quiz, we're asking all those questions and more, in celebration of all the truly great TV shows that have been set below the Mason-Dixon line. Over the years, the South has provided Hollywood writers with a variety of intriguing settings, from the gritty, mysterious Louisiana depicted in David Simon's "Treme" to the classic North Carolina charm embodied by "The Andy Griffith Show." Plus, we haven't even mentioned all the fantastic female-led Southern comedies, such as "Designing Women," "Hart of Dixie" and "Jane the Virgin."

We're curious about which Southern programming really rings your bell. Are you a "Golden Girls" kind of gal, or do you prefer the more cerebral comedy of "Atlanta"? We suspect that your taste in TV might reveal the state that you're currently living in. Want to prove that loving "Justified" and "Outsiders" doesn't mean you live in Kentucky? Stop binge-watching "One Tree Hill" and come play this quiz!
