    Didn't realize I needed to google exact figures to make a point. This is just a forum, not a research paper. The point was most of your entertainment is American. The figures you just put up prove that. Every country thinks their way is the best way, so not sure what your point was there. If we lived in the UK, I would say you are correct about American culture not being an influence. They definitely hold their own. I was talking about Australian culture being influenced because that's the only one I have first hand experience with. Everyone likes to take a dig at Americans because we are so internally focused, so I'll give you that, I agree most of Americans are. The culture gap is not that big. If you don't think the crap you watch & buy from the American culture (along with British culture) is influencing the Australian culture, you aren't paying attention.
    No Australia isn't the rest of the world, and nor did I say that. I said when I was living there, the Americans (lived in DC) presumed the rest of the world "followed" them and copied everything they did. Not just Australians.

    It isn't a research paper but that doesn't mean you can expect to make sh!t up and not be corrected when it is wrong. The figures I wrote do not state that the majority of viewing is american. I didn't nitpick on a small percentage difference. I said your post was completely wrong as it wasn't even close. I put the figures there because the majority of our TV *isn't* american.

    I said the British culture does influence us. More than america. That was also my point. So you have completely misread my post.
