I do not understand why BBCA plays BSG and ST:TNG. Also, while I know that Top Gear and that Ramsay Kitchen Guy must be popular, I find it hard to believe that there are not other British programmes (both currently being made AND older out-of-production shows) that Americans would enjoy with which the BBCA could fill out their schedule.
BBC America is a commercial network, and they have to show things that they know will get eyeballs for advertisers and will justify what they pay to show it.
