U.S. TV series are giving French fiction programming a run for its money, having monopolized the Gallic small screen last year according to figures from French audiovisual promotion association the APA, released Monday.

French fictional programs took just 13 of the top 100 most-watched shows for 2008, while U.S. imports monopolized the list with 57 spots.

This marks a major shift from 2005 when French fiction took 56 of the same 100 spots and U.S. shows just four.
