The controversial competition of Ricky Gervais versus Steve Carell as ultimate boss of The Office is addressed in this 'US TV Knock-Offs' infographic, which asks, "Which shows are better, the UK originals or US versions?" Designed by Confused.com, the chart pits the most popular American adaptations of British TV series against their precursors.
While I am a stickler for original programming, I had to admit a lot of these American versions do beat out the UK shows. As the chart shows, the U.S. versions of American Idol, Queer as Folk and The Apprentice have definitely stolen the focus from their originals.
