The one so called sitcom that I think was more successful in the USA vs. the UK is Shameless. Even though Shameless was originally from the UK.

Here is a list on Wikipedia: As you can see very few sitcoms have been duplicated in the UK:

There was also the failed pilot called Snavely in 1978.
Marge: There are only 49 stars on that flag.
Abe: I'll be deep in the cold, cold ground before I recognize Missouri!
