Top Ten British Sitcoms The Americans StoleThere have been A LOT but to be fair here are the top ten.
The Top Ten
The people who created the British version of The Office also created the American version of The Office, so... - ParasN2000
Became Sanford and Son. I've never seen it but the British version was hilarious! 'You dirty old man'
How on earth did this work? Was it funny? I didn't know this was an American remake.
This was a right royal flop; it didn't even get past pilot episode. 'Rodney you dumbass' and 'Awesome jawsome' would've just sounded weird!
So much bias in this list, wow. America did not "steal" your beloved British sitcoms. Even if they did ruin them, "stealing" refers to plagiarism, not copying them for other purposes. - Swellow
The Americans tried to make it more interesting by getting rid of Basil! What the hell?!?! He was the highpoint of the show! What was wrong with them?!?!
Would have loved to have seen Robert Llewellyn's face when he went to America to see the script and just went straight home! Laugh out loud! - PositronWildhawk
Became 'Threes A Company' in the USA.
