* A nearly identical American version aired on [=VH1=], starting with 2002's ''I Love the '80s''. In total, [=VH1=]'s covered TheEighties three times, and TheSeventies, TheNineties, and the TurnOfTheMillennium twice. Notably, the later installments for the Seventies and especially the Eighties poked holes in the NostalgiaFilter by discussing shows and fads that were DeaderThanDisco, SoBadItsGood and/or even completely terrible. (''Film/HowardTheDuck'', anyone?) There was also a goodly deal of SelfParody in later installments -- of both the growing number of shows and the regular panelists. (In a '90s-related discussion of The Club anti-car theft device, comic Hal Sparks claimed that VH-1 was using it on him in the downtime between shows.)

** These shows were so popular that ''I Love the New Millennium'' covered the 2000s in '''2008'''! It's almost fascinating now as a time capsule for what people THOUGHT would be memorable and lasting about, say, 2007. Some looked laughably dated just a year or two down the road -- and yet, it's almost more apt for the sort of nostalgia the franchise was made for. (They had a long segment on Myspace...but didn't mention Facebook once!) In any case, [=VH1=] revisited the decade in 2014, this time calling it ''I Love the 2000s''.
** [=VH1=] also did a series of specials called ''When _____ Ruled the World''. The ''Franchise/StarWars'' episode actually had the merit of featuring almost the entire cast of the old trilogy. (Other topics included Music/{{KISS}} and disco.)

* In the UK ChannelFour and Five seem to air a ''100 Best Whatever'' show every few months, roping in lots of "celebs" to discuss their favourite whatevers.

** ChannelFour leapt on the chance to release a new-millennium edition about as soon as 2010 started. Appropriately enough given the decade's widespread pessimism and sense of anticlimax, it was called ''the noughties... was that it?'' (yes, inexplicable-but-fashionable [[AllLowercaseLetters lowercase]] included).
