The good ole US of A just doesn't know when to pull the plug. First it was Kath & Kim and then it was Rake. And now CBS wants to create an American version of ABC's (that is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation) Upper Middle Bogan in what one would assume will be retitled, Upper Middle Redneck or perhaps Upper Middle Trailer Trash. Who knows but the point is, like it was with Kath and Kim, it shouldn't happen.
The american travesty is to be written and produced by Dan O'Shannon, whom is responsible for giving us Modern Family. Wayne Hope and Robyn Butler, the Australians behind the series (as well as The Libraians and Thank God You're Here) will also be involved.
Both US versions of Kath & Kim and Rake were cancelled after one season.
Whyyyyyyyyyyy do they continue doing this?? It never works.
