American Kath and Kim?

As an American, I find the US copycat version of Kath and Kim version repulsive.  I believe the format of Kath and Kim is non-exportable. The lifestyles of Australian suburban women can not be translated to the American life. Although both versions make the women dependent on men and materialistic, the characters on the Australian version are at least likable characters!

I also think the “dull” american accent also makes the show unlikeable.

A reviewer said, “NBC’s unfunny adaptation of the wildly funny Australian sitcom is arguably the worst idea for an import from the Land Down Under since Vegemite”. http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/television/us-kath-and-kim-worse-than-vegemite/story-e6frfmyi-1111117718888
