For a start I'm not in France, only happen to have a French first name..

US ATSC is 29.976 fps or 59.94Hz interlaced.

It's the framerate per second that is relevant... Because it's interlaced, a full frame is made of 2 interlaced ones.
60Hz interlaced = 30 fps.
50Hz interlaced = 25 fps
60Hz progressive = 60 fps, but this is never broadcast, the best that can be broadcast is 60Hz interlaced or 30 fps.

I'm not hostile, I'm answering your questions, but you stubbornly choose to ignore them continuing to ask even after you got it answered.
In my first answer to you, previous page I said the exact same thing.
