0614PHMPF27The Brothers Brannagan wasn’t the only face time Phoenix had on the boob tube. Here are a few other shows set in the city.

Alice (CBS, 1976-1985): A show about a widowed waitress, shot in California but set at the real (and still open) Mel’s Diner on Grand Avenue.

Medium (NBC/CBS, 2005-2011): Patricia Arquette starred as real-life psychic Allison DuBois, whose character on the show was employed as a consultant for the district attorney’s office in Phoenix.

American Body Shop (Comedy Central, 2007): This improvised comedy show about an accident-prone crew at a dysfunctional auto body shop in Phoenix was canceled after one season.
