I wonder if you lovely DS-ers can help me, particularly those that watch TV in the US.
My problem is that I am giving a talk in the US in a couple of weeks, and I want to draw an memorable/amusing analogy for two ways of doing business in my specialism.
Very simplistically, there is Option A which is a somewhat abrasive and argumentative relationship between customer and supplier, and Option B which is much more consensual. When talking to folks in the UK I often characterise these along the lines of 'In Option A it's like being on the Jeremy Kyle show, but Option B is like being on Michael Parkinson'.
Clearly these analogies won't work on a primarily US audience, so can anyone give me pointers as to two current equivalent shows in the US that would be familiar to all and may even raise a smile in the audience?
Any suggestions gratefuly received and I'll then toddle off to You Tube to continue my research.
With thanks.
