I love watching television about rich people. What shows should I be watching?

The ideal show for me in the rich TV category is Downton Abbey. They're rich and much of the show is just sort of about them being rich -- the servants, the amazing house, the periodic old money problems. Even though the plot lines, at times, strain my willingness to play along, it's so posh and beautifully shot that I'd happily watch it on mute if it came to it. On the other hand, I don't like the Real Housewives of Wherever franchise, because while the people are all generally very rich, the show just doesn't have that same lush/posh appeal.
So, what should I be watching? Feel free to suggest currently airing or older shows of basically any genre -- the richer the better. Thanks!
