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...
Some of the cast got so old that towards the end, they used doubles for "walking fast" and the like.
