French and Saunders
Were Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders popular in the US? Aside from Saunders for Ab Fab.
Love their Fellini parody.
- Don't really think so, at least in the day the TV was the prime source of broadcast entertainment.
- Comedy Central tried to re run some episodes of "French and Saunders" ages ago and it sadly did not work out well. I loved them and used to record them.
- I know some PBS stations ran "The Vicar of Dibley" for a while. Haven't seen it lately.
The only station in the USA which even runs the shows, occasionally, is WNED in Western NY.
- French and Saunders (pre-pre-pre any other shit they did) were hilarious. I loved them since "Girls On Top." They have such a natural click for comedy. I wish the US had embraced them more.
- They had at best a small cult following. One of the NYC independent stations ran the show late night Fridays, I believe.
- BBC America ran them for a while. I have the collection DVDs (Gentlemen Prefer French and Saunders, etc.). Still very, very funny.
