8 hours of knitting? 18 hours of salmon swimming upstream? Norway takes reality television to its most basic level ó and viewers canít get enough.

And for envious American television viewers with no time to finish their sentences, you're in luck. The television production company, LMNO Productions, has acquired the rights to make a U.S. version and is planning to put its own uniquely American spin on the concept.

Norwegian humor can be inscrutable.

It is a nice change from all the noisy flashing crap that showers over us 24/7.

I know, it's crazy. And so are the Norwegians.

Like the idea, though. Gonna watch a bit of that train video.

We had here a similar show last summer or the year before, a few reporters travelling for 24 hours by train and interviewing people that hopped on. But this Norwegian concept is even more boring.

I'm going to watch the train, too. No crazier than the NYC Yule Log.

I'd rather watch bananas fleck. Then, they are delicious. When grass grows, you just have to cut it.

W24, a local TV station in Vienna, shows the footage from GoPros fixed to trams from 10pm till 6am. They don't even add music...

This reminds me a lot of a channel I get called DOG TV. Anyone heard of it?

It's supposed to be a channel that keeps company for your dog while you are away.

I had a free preview of it one weekend and it actually wouldn't be a bad thing to have it on as background noise.

Depending on the time of day, it's usually dogs playing or birds flying around or some other random thing.

In the morning and evening it's calming and soothing music, and during the afternoon it usually takes on a more

Energetic tone. I bet there are a lot of crazy people out there who would actually pay a monthly premium just to have

this for their pet. There's a sucker born every minute, so they say.
