How popular is your favorite show outside of the United States? Our friends over at Vulture recently investigated international television ratings from January 1 to October 31 of this year and posted the top ten most popular U.S. television shows in 18 nations.

While some of the results may surprise you (Argentina’s most popular American series is The Simpsons), many of our most-watched shows remain popular in other countries. CBS comedy stalwart The Big Bang Theory is the most popular U.S. television series in both Canada and Australia, while NCIS proves that no region is immune to the intrigue of Naval crime fighting.
