Awake on Norwegian TV

:roll: Just found out TV2 in Norway has almost concluded the series. And if you think NBC's time slot was bad.... What do you think of Tuesday 1.35 AM? :shh :evil:

They are on ep 10 already... I haven't seen any promo for it, but I think the scedule explains that. At least I can record the final 4 episodes, and get to see them in better quality than I have upto now.

Their scheduling of it at that time makes me wonder how much they paid for the right to broadcast it.
Thunder, is it typical of Norwegian tv to show "foreign" programming that late at night? Is it a commercial channel?

No, they show foreign series at normal times as well. I think at least 50 % of the series shown on Norwegian TV are American or British. But when they by foreign series, they buy it in "packages". So Awake has probably been a part of a package that they didn't buy for Awake, but for something else. So they just use Awake to fill up the empty spots, since they've already got it. I saw that they used to send it at 11.30 when they started sending it... But that's hardly any better on week nights. And they haven't had any previews or anything...
