For example Fawlty Towers was tried twice in the USA: Amanda's place with Bea Arthur and Paine with John Laroquette, they both failed miserably, they did not have the chemistry of the Original, and also they were PC, Vs Fawlty Towers.

And recently the US tried Call me Kat which is the american version of Miranda. Miranda is so much better in chemistry between the cast, story lines, and not PC.

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:
