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." :rolleyes:

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!

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.

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 :fiery:

We created HBO. We have better television.

Shows like American Idol are for bitches, anyway.
