Each of these clues is a river. When you figure out all the rivers you'll be able to know what TV show this is.

  1. Failed to cross
  2. Gold, Solitaire, Island
  3. Three times I'm delayed yet I still make the journey
  4. I once made a trek through New Granada
  5. Look at
  6. CCLMTV
  7. Beginning from a great state of red
  8. I feed a tiger
  9. Native American Chief
  10. Oy rats have learned to adapt
  11. From black, red, and gold to black

    Gander (means a goose or a glance i.e. look at).

  6. CCLMTV

    Mekong (crossing the countries with this initials)

  7. Beginning from a great state of red

    Rio Grande - "great river" originating in Colorado ("colored red")

  8. I feed a tiger

    Ganges (flows into the Bay of Bengal - Bengal tiger)

  9. Native American Chief

    Shenandoah (not sure but it might be an anglicised version of a Native American name)

  10. Oy rats have learned to adapt

    Volga river Which the Oirat name for means adaptation river

  1. Three times I'm delayed yet I still make the journey

Mississippi? ("Three times I'm delayed" -> the three sets of double letters, "I still make the journey" maybe referring to its role in Huckleberry Finn?)

  1. I once made a trek through New Granada.

Orinoco? It's a major river of present-day Colombia, and for wordplay, it looks like "I once" shares a lot of letters with it.

  1. Beginning from a state of red

Makes me think of the Missouri River which starts in Montana, which voted for Trump - though I'm not at all sure of this one.

  1. Native American Chief

Probably a stretch, but - Ganges? (Chief river of India.)

  1. Oy rats have learned to adapt

Another stretch - rot13 "oy rats" and you get "bl engf". "Adapt" it by changing F to A and anagramming, and you get Bengal? (Though looking it up on Wikipedia gives the official name as Hooghly River...)

  1. From black, red, and gold to black

Guessing this is the Danube - which flows from Germany (with the black, red and gold flag, as Veskah already observed) to the Black Sea.

  1. CCLMTV

Mekong - flows through China (C), Cambodia (C), Laos (L), Malaysia (M), Taiwan (T) and Vietnam (V)

  1. Beginning from a great state of red

Rio Grande - "great river" originating in Colorado ("colored red")

  1. I feed a tiger

Ganges - flows into the Bay of Bengal

  1. From black, red, and gold to black

Danube - begins in Germany (German flag is black, red, and gold) and empties into the Black Sea

$\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Can't flow through Taiwan, it's an island. Thailand, maybe? $\endgroup$ – NetJohn Apr 10 '18 at 14:09

  1. Three times I'm delayed yet I still make the journey

Yangtze River? It's blocked by the Three Gorges Dam and makes it to the East China Sea

  1. I feed a tiger

Tigris is Greek for Tiger and I don't really see a river tributary for it.

  1. From black, red, and gold to black

The Rhine? Black, Red and Gold seems to be Germany and I guess you can say the North sea is black but that doesn't seem very good.

  • $\begingroup$ Hello and welcome to PSE. Because most of the answers were already published, it is only polite to credit the authors of the previous answers. Otherwise this will be a duplicated answer which doesn't add value to the topic. $\endgroup$ – rhsquared Apr 10 '18 at 9:45
  • $\begingroup$ @rhsquared I didn't read any other answers. I recognized a few of them, got the TV show, and realized the rest. When I have time, I can look at the previous answers and try to determine who had them first. I believe this is the first answer to provide a complete (and likely correct) solution, though. $\endgroup$ – Thomas Owens Apr 10 '18 at 9:48

    $\begingroup$ (Independent work doesn't redeem a duplicative answer; it's still duplicative. You should always look at existing answers before providing one of your own, to ensure you are not just adding a duplicate. There is value in a collected-answers post, as rhsquared did here, but credit should always be given to the posters who got there first. If there is no part of the answer that wasn't already provided elsewhere, and no credit is given to the first providers of the answer, a collected answer that isn't CW looks suspiciously like a rep grab.) $\endgroup$ – Rubio Apr 10 '18 at 17:28
  • $\begingroup$ Also, it'd be best to include some sort of explanation as to how each answer fits each clue, instead of just giving the end result :) $\endgroup$ – Mithical Apr 10 '18 at 17:46
