Re: American Comedy Vs. British Comedy "TV"

I wonder why the Americans never took to Last of the Summer Wine - it certainly had a heck of a lot of episodes compare to the usual British comedy show - 295 in all. Perhaps it was the accents/dialects, insufficient cultural overlap, or perhaps it was because it was the same old jokes, repeated again and again and again...
