Brits addicted to U.S. TV

Poll of UK viewers shows 9 out of 10 "addictive" shows are American

According to a poll of British TV viewers by LOVEFILM.COM, the most addictive television series of recent years is 24. Of the top 10 most watchable shows chosen by the sample of 3,000 UK television viewers, only one UK show made the list: Dr. Who. Otherwise, the list is all American shows, mostly serialized dramas like Lost and Prison Break, but also comedies like Friends and Sex and the City, where there are few cliffhangers. It just goes to show that Canadians aren’t the only ones who prefer U.S. shows to our own; we’re in good company with our cousins overseas, who would rather get addicted to Heroes than Coronation Street.
