UK TV is likely to be a bit racier than US TV probably

A lot of popular US TV Shows originated in the UK, i.e. American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, etc.

Also, less commercials on UK TV

Less interruptions on UK TV with adverts although I haven't seen US TV for ages.

yeah, US TV is like "We interrupt this show's title sequence to bring you these commercial messages. Please stay tuned for the second half of the title sequence and possibly the first scene, before the news at 10."

Brit tv is 20 times better. I was in a tennis coma watching Wimbledon over there this year. I can't wait to go back!

Re: What the difference between UK TV and US TV?

US dramas are more glamourus then british TV. British TV is more gritty.

I prefer british TV but still like loads of US shows like Friends, ER, Chicago hope, Without a trace, Grey's anatomy, Lost, Desperate housewives.

GOOD LUCK IN 2016 GB TENNIS GIRLS

UK TV is better. Mainly because we get the best US Shows and we still have our own great shows

Plus, less adverts. Although Channel 4 were starting to take the piss earlier this year. An advert straight after the opening credits. I mean WTF

Re: What the difference between UK TV and US TV?

We created HBO. We have better television.

Shows like American Idol are for bitches, anyway.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.
