american imports on telly

In the first half of this year, 24% of C4's primetime programmes were US imports. In 2001 the figure was only 17%, but five years before that, it was 21%. Perhaps more tellingly, in the first half of 2006, Five also showed 24% US shows; BBC1 screened 9%, BBC2 8% and ITV just 2%. But ITV is planning to add more US dramas shortly.
