Yeah whatever. Why can't the Brits make a decent car??? Or keep the Royals from "getting caught with their pen in the ink"?

:rolleyes: Why don't the British make microwave ovens? Because they can't make them leak oil. :rolleyes:

Weakest Link didnt fail here. OK maybe only in primetime with Anne Robinson. Comedian George Gray will continue to host the syndicated version, and Meredith Vieira will start the syndicated version of Millionare.

From Today's IMDB ( http://www.imdb.com/StudioBrief/2002/20020520.html#10 )....

NOTE: In Friday's edition, we cited a quotation from The Weakest Link host Anne Robinson that appeared in that day's London Daily Mail: "I saw George Bush at a benefit concert actually waving at Stevie Wonder. ... Someone had to tell him 'he can't see you.'" Washington Post columnist Lloyd Grove wrote on Friday that Robinson "seems to have deeply enjoyed our March scoop about Bush's wave to Stevie Wonder -- so much so that she claims to have actually witnessed it." The story has been debunked, however, most prominently by the artistic director of Ford's Theatre, who was seated next to the president. Grove himself reportedly examined a video taken by the "presidential isocam" and concluded that Bush, if he was waving at all, raised his hand to get the attention of Kelsey Grammer, the show's MC.

There's no end to bad TV shows. Anne Robinson was occasionally funny on Weakest Link, but that show reeked and it didn't give her much to work with. She might be good as talk show host.

European TV doesn't have much to brag about either. Last time I was overseas Germany was still crazy about Knight Rider and Italians were walking around with 90210 shirts. And this was after those shows were canceled in America!
