Most of the popular TV shows in the UK are USA made.
Star Trek is 'most missed' series
Sci-fi series Star Trek is the show most people want to see returned to their TV screens, a survey has found.

Originally broadcast in the US in 1966, it topped a poll of more than 1,000 viewers commissioned by UK interactive TV firm Home Media Networks.

Fantasy action series Buffy the Vampire Slayer was second, followed by long-running sitcom Friends.

Star Trek's latest spin-off TV series, Enterprise, was axed in February following poor ratings.

Star Trek also spawned 10 movie spin-offs, the most recent being Nemesis in 2002.

Sitcom Fawlty Towers was the highest ranking UK show in the list, in fourth place.

Sci-fi shows featured heavily in the top 10, including UK series Blake's 7 and US shows Babylon 5 and Stargate.

Popular US sitcom Seinfeld, which spawned ongoing series Curb Your Enthusiasm, was in ninth place.

I thought Stargate was still on?

Or is it just Atlantis now?

If you've ever seen "Trekkies" or "Trekkies 2" with Denise Crosby you'll see that Star Trek has a vast and mildly disturbing following all around the world. You'll also see that Denise Crosby is teh stakt and them's real!
