* ''Series/ThirtyRock'': One episode had Jack and Liz travel to Stone Mountain, Georgia (Kenneth's home town) to scout out salt-of-the-earth 'Real American' talent. The real Stone Mountain is firmly within the orbit of metropolitan Atlanta and has a population that's mainly African-American, but the show depicts it as part of ''HeeHaw'' Land. Former ''30 Rock'' writer and Stone Mountain native Creator/DonaldGlover points this out on the DVD commentary.

* Even live sporting events aren't immune from TelevisionGeography. In September 2011, {{ESPN}} aired what they claimed was a shot of the skyline of Madison, Wisconsin during a football game between the University of Wisconsin and the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. However, as [=CNBC=]'s Darren Rovell [[http://www.whosay.com/darrenrovell/photos/64273 noted]], it was actually stock footage of the skyline in Minneapolis, Minnesota -- 230 miles northwest of Madison.

* ''Series/TheUnit'': One episode set in LondonTown has three errors - using an establishing shot of the [=MI6=] HQ and stating it is that of [=MI5=], having St. Stephen's Tower (aka Big Ben) visible at ground level in the City of London and the wrong licence plate format for the UK.

* ''PoliceCameraAction'': This show made this mistake '''twice'''. First of all, they mentioned "Lancashire Police" in an episode where a sign saying "Sale, Cheadle A6144" was mentioned, and that's in Greater Manchester. Then they mentioned "the M25 in London", except the footage showed Sevenoaks...which is in Kent.

* ''Atomic Train'': In NBC's made for TV movie, we see several shots of what is supposedly the Denver skyline, populated by such logos as, Canada Trust or the Bank of Nova Scotia.

* ''Series/{{M*A*S*H}}'': While the 4077th MASH is supposed to be stationed in and around Uijeongbu, South Korea, the hillsides and plains look very suspiciously like the terrain of Southern California. Also, the regular sub-arctic temperatures depicted in multiple episodes such as "Baby It's Cold Outside" simply do not occur to the magnitude depicted on the show.
