I have just finished watching an epsiode of Blue Murder (The UK version) which is set in Manchester.
Main shots in the episode were the Midland Hotel, Princess Road, Manchester Terminal 2, The outside of her house in Didsbury (right next to where i work) and her office which is located in the heart of the city right near city hall.
So of course i recognsie all the areas of filming.

The Mary Tyler Moore show was set in Minneapolis. I can't think of any others off the top of my head (no prime time national programs, anyway), but I can think of several movies set or filmed in the area.

Neighbours is filmed in the outer suburbs of Melbourne, the actual 'Ramsay Street' is Pin Oak Crescent in Vermont South, about 10 minutes drive from where I live. When we first got our licences, we would make the trip past there late on a Friday or Saturday night. The street would be blocked off & be guarded on weekends so drunken teenagers wouldn't destroy the front yards & terrorise the people living in the houses..........

The Lifetime series Any Day Now was set here, but it was filmed in California and apparently the writers had never so much as set foot in Birmingham nor did they see fit to hire a technical editor for scripts.

The upcoming movie that will be released August 22nd, I believe, "The Kingdom" was filmed in Mesa, Arizona on the Arizona State University's Polytechnic Campus, on Loop 202 and on IWA's property last year. I have personally been on the actual set in-between filmings. This was about less than a mile away from my A&P school.

In the early seasons of this show Mary rents a room in a house. When the home owners asked too much $$$ for their home to appear in the show Mary moved, in the later seasons, to a hi rise apt building. Said building is right next door to the bridge that collapsed last week - in fact many of the amateur photos taken immediately after the collapse were taken by residents of that building...
Oh and the infamous shot where Mary inconsiderately blocks traffic, throws her hat in the air, and gets a evil stare from a woman who could easily be my mother.... I worked just down the street and my gf at the time worked at the Daytons Dept Store you see in the background....

They actually have a statue of her there in front of the Dayton's (now Macy's) in Downtown Minneapolis on the sidewalk for Nicollet Mall.
