'GCB," which premieres Sunday on ABC, is the latest TV series that's set in Dallas:

1. 'DALLAS' (1978-1991) -- Duh.

2. 'WALKER, TEXAS RANGER' (1993-2001) -- The contemporary Western starred the one and only Chuck Norris as Cord Walker, who worked out of the Texas Rangers' Dallas office (and, of course, we mean the TRs who wear badges, not spikes.)

3. 'SONS OF THUNDER' (1999) -- Forgotten "Walker" spinoff starring Jimmy Wlcek and Marco Sanchez as partners in a Dallas private detective agency.

4. 'THE GOOD GUYS' (2010) -- Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks were an odd-couple detective team working in the Dallas police department.

5. REALITY SHOWS -- Big D is a big lure, apparently: "Sheer Dallas" (TLC, 2005) "Dallas Divas & Daughters" (Style, 2009); "Most Eligible: Dallas" (Bravo, 2011-); "Big Rich Texas" (Style, 2011-)
