The British are Coming! The British are coming! (all over my tv!)

Every other reality TV show has a british speaking host. Do the network executives think that the american tv viewing audience is addicted to sound of a british accent. Is it true? Personally I am not as wooed by the accent as others must be. There is nothing wrong with a host that speaks english with an american accent. It is almost getting ridiculous. Many of the shows have hosts with obviously fake accents, like they realized that their resume was lacking the british accent, so they are improvising with a bastardized combination of european accents. Have you heard Madonna do any interviews lately? Apparantly she is also trying to gain popularity by adopting a british accent. What's next? Local news anchors, politicians, ??? I say we take pride in being american and quit glamorizing the accent.
