Europe is a big place but in the UK it's mostly the same kind of stuff but they have evening soaps which are not really like US soaps, they are ongoing kitchen sink dramas with a lot higher production values and more realistic subject matter than US daytime soaps. Also daily talk shows have never taken off, you get the likes of Jonathan Ross where the format isn't that far removed from Leno/Letterman etc but they are weekly so you get less of them but tend to get a better mix of guests and a bit less filler as a result.
I always did like "Are you being served?" a long time ago.
I never did get into "East Enders" but I always respected it.
