Television, which makes the world into a global village, can be placed within local, national and global relations while providing individuals with conversation topics of common interest. According to the point of view that supports the cultural effects, television makes individuals, masses and societies close to one another. In this regard, “one world’’ culture approach is attributed to observations on communication, transportation and trade improvements. A different point of view supports the idea that television doesn’t have the same effect on every society. Because cultural interaction differs from society to society and according to the social environment people are in economical situation and cultural background. Gerard Hendrik Hofstede (1983) who has works on national and institutional intercultural interactions pointed in his works that national and regional cultural grouping have effects on the behaviors of societies. When these interactions are taken into consideration, it is thought that foreign countries, which export TV serials, might take cultural aspect into consideration while making their preferences. Because it is a highly likely that individuals will get affected from these productions and find it close to themselves. In this sense, it was aimed to show the similarities between the countries that watch Turkish TV serials and Turkey’s national culture aspects. 75 countries to which TV serials are exported will be evaluated according to four aspects (Power Distance (PDI), Individualism versus Collectivism (IDV), Masculinity versus Femininity (MAS), Uncertainty Avoidance (UAI)), which Hofstede suggests belongs to culture and cultural aspect closeness between the countries that watch Turkish TV series are examined.
