TV's Family Fortunes

Slide 1 of 11

By Emily RussinSpecial to MSN EntertainmentTV's richest families have consistently entertained us with lavish plots and unapologetic materialism, providing an escape from our mortgage-paying, coupon-cutting lives. From "Dynasty" to "Gossip Girl," we've long been fascinated with how the highest tax brackets live, including a recent rash of reality shows that revel in the lives of the rich and super-rich (with results both fascinating and repellent). Adding to the list of upper-crust offerings is this fall's "Privileged" (pictured, left), a CW teen drama centered on a hired tutor's initiation into Palm Beach, Fla., society. In this period of economic jitters, viewers aren't likely to tire of boardrooms, bling or Bentleys anytime soon, so ... show us the money!
