Amerikansk TV Show Quiz

Siden jeg har fortalt tit alle mine venner og familie medlemmer i Amerika om hvordan dansk TV har skiftet navnene af mest Amerikansk shows at vi har i Danmark, syntes jeg det vil være sjovt at se hvis de kan finde ud hvad show hvert navn forestiller.....Med ikke hjælp fra internet eller fra mennesker som bor i Danmark!! :o) Jeg vil vente få dage så alle kan deltage og jeg vil skrive rette svare før vi tager til Sverige på fredag. Have sjov!!


Since I have often told all my friends and family in America about how Danish TV has changed the names of most American shows we have in Denmark, I thought it would be fun to see if they can figure out what show each name represents.....with no help from the internet or people living in DK! :o) Jeg will wait a few days until everyone has a chance to participate og will post the correct answers before we leave for Sweden on Friday. Have fun!

Men først---En list af Amerikanske TV Shows i danske tv (med REGELMÆSSIGHED) med samme navn som i Amerika (og jeg tænker at du vil være overrasket når du se hvad shows vi har!)

#9 "Når mænd er værst" is not an American TV show, it's an English sitcom named "Men Behaving Badly".

Don't you hate when people send you stuff as 'anonymous'? I've had a few and they're always nasty nellies! I use statcounter, so I can usually figure out who they are.

My favorite is Sam's Bar; I forget what it is in Danish, though.

As always, I'm enjoying your blog!
