The U.S. and U.K. love to steal each other's ideas for TV shows.
OK, mostly the U.S. stealing from the U.K., but whatever.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, though, as the ripoff does sometimes end up better than the original.
And even when it isn't better, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Take The Office, for example.
While many people would agree that the British original starring Ricky Gervais was superior, most people agree that the U.S. copy, starring Steve Carrell, was a great sitcom. Some even argue that it's on an upswing again, with the infusion of James Spader.
Interestingly, though, while many complain about how there's more and more reality television and how American television is a vast wasteland, most of the reality and game shows here originated in Britain. So what does that mean? Or is it simply a matter of the Brits coming up with better ideas for reality television (and in the case of, say, "Skins," executing it far better)?
So what do you think? Which are better? Check out the infographic below from Confused to see how the originals and copies compare.
