Never watched most of these shows but still got them all. Dexter was great. The 24 clue is hilarious, and that show is ridiculous.

Almost all of these were shown internationally (or at least, in the case of the Palin question, was on the news), so I was able to get all but one. As GEICO is a US only company with no activity outside of the US, no one from ROW is going to know the company, let alone the ads, let alone the short-lived spin off TV show... Just the fact that it was short lived, as mentioned in the question, should be enough to highlight it was not syndicated internationally. There're enough protests of 'US focus' on here - this just seems very deliberate.
