About This Quiz

Do your television preferences give away the state you live in? We think so! Much like accents, every region of the country has shows and characters they like more than others. Perhaps people identify with them because it reminds them of the life around them. Or maybe it's because it's a glimpse into an entirely different world. 

The United States is huge, and every part of it contains unique culture. Tell us about the television shows you are most drawn to watching, and we'll try and guess your state. 

You might have liked "Charmed" because it showed you a bit of San Francisco, or you might have enjoyed "Friends" because of its New York City setting. No matter why you like certain shows, they hit home for a multitude of reasons. We tend to find things funniest when we can relate to them, so it only makes sense that our television favorites would mirror the place we live! 

Throughout the quiz, we'll ask for your input about all things televisions. When you're done, we'll take an educated guess about the region you live in. From there, we'll narrow it down to your specific state. Grab the remote, and get comfortable! We're ready to guesstimate!
