    I only watched 1:26 of it, but I'm sure we deserve whatever censure we received.
    I personally can't watch that stuff.
    It makes me paranoid, and I'm already paranoid enough.

    And what's worse is we export that filth so we can violate the rest of the world with it.
    It's no wonder the Muslims who bombed us on nine-eleven think the US is the great infidel. Duh!

    I daresay the Brits are not all that innocent though. The sexual content allowed in Britain has long been considered far too offensive for American television. And that TV announcer was a good bit more verbally vulgar than what is allowed on mainstream tv in the US.

    I think there are trashy tv shows in each country.
    USA is just a big country with lots of tv programs exported to the rest of the world and that's why we others get to see also the bad tv shows from America.

    BINGO.

    The US has easily the largest number of TV programs of any nation in the world. It's quite simple to cherry pick the basest and crudest ones and try to make a blanket statement if that's what you want to do. I daresay that if someone made an 8 minute package like that featuring the best of US television, it would be quite impressive.

    I'll take the potshots about US television programs more seriously when other countries don't buy them up as fast as they can get their hands on them.

    I stand by my statement. If it weren't enjoyed, it wouldn't be watched so widely. As the old joke goes, "This food is terrible. And the portions are so small!"

    Last night I saw My Name Is Earl, love that show, and then when I came in, I caught King of the Hill at 4am.

    I watch a lot of American TV shows.
