If it succeeds here, then I claim 'Executive Producer' credit... and generous residuals.

What types of "slow TV" would you either watch or imagine would be successful, especially in the US?

Twice in the 90s, I've watched 8+ consecutive hours of The Weather Channel. No hurricanes or anything special; just generic @$$ weather. I watched for so long, I saw the maps and the forecast change before my eyes.

    I watched a Korean pop music show for like 3 hours once.

    I'm pretty sure I'm fluent in Korean now.

    I'll see your golf, and raise you... cricket. Five day test match anyone?

    Longest test match - 9 days. England v South Africa, 1939. And it was a draw.

    Just remembered. I watched the Kasparov/Short chess match back in '93.

    If that's not slow TV, I don't know what is.

    At least Ninja Warrior is fast paced... even stage 3 which effectively has no time limit. FTR, I too have watched a 6 hr NW marathon.

    "People Getting Punched in the Face Just Before Eating." This was an SNL digital short, but It was funny. I truly believe Americans would watch it if it was a real show.
