These shows have a “blank-slate” quality that makes them ideal for comparing entertainment television across borders.Game shows can run the gamut of many subject areas or focus on one, such as rock music (MTV’s Remote Control) or football (ESPNs NFL Trivia Game). They can spotlight dazzlingly high IQs (the BBC’s erudite Mastermind) or nude assistants and contestants (Germany’s Tutti Frutti). They can limp along in mid-morning time slots or smash the competition in prime time (France’s La Roue de la Fortune).This is the first comprehensive comparison of TV entertainment content, and it gives new meaning to McLuhan’s concept of the “Global Village.”
