Since television was first brought into our homes in the 1930s, shows have brought us moments to cry about, moments to be joyous about and even moments to despise.

What's your favorite TV export?

What's your favorite TV export?

Audiences have been watching everything from comedies, dramas, reality shows, news programs... the list goes on.

In the early days, audiences were mesmerized by the black and white edition of "Leave it to Beaver," fell in love with "The Cosby's" and became addicted to "Friends" and "Seinfeld."

The United States has truly been the leader in providing hit shows to the rest of the world over the course of the last half century.

And while America may be known as the home to modern-day television programming, many other countries have provided us with some memorable moments.

Countries like Canada, the United Kingdom and even Australia have all exported television shows that many audience members would consider national treasures.

Canadians probably all still love "Degrassi High," Australians cherish "Neighbours," and the Brits still watch "Doctor Who."

We want to know what you think.

Is there a television show from your country that you feel is a 'national treasure'? Has a show from your country become a global success?
