This truly shows how big a metro area actually is.

TV Markets 2011, Designated Market Areas, Nielsen DMA rankings

On the local news they said Harrisburg was larger than Las Vegas, guess that's no longer the case.

Philadelphia does feel like the fourth largest city, for real though.

Actually, TV media markets aren't a great way to measure a market like DC and Baltimore. Each city has there own media market. The line is drawn northeast of DC and southeast of Baltimore in Howard county. That is about 20 minutes outside DC proper and 15 minutes outside Baltimore proper. An area like Houston, Atlanta, or Dallas with nothing around them for miles is night an day to an area like DC and Baltimore.
