    The Closer seems to have disapeared from the schedules, does anyone know if it is on hiatus or has it gone the way of every other channel 4 import and disapeared for good?

    Ch4 have the rights for the rest of the first season but the remaining episodes have not been scheduled.
    So it's either a late night filler slot, digital only channel or on CH4 with even less fan fare than the first few episodes got thus meaning some of the fan base don't even know it's back on.

    You've got to admire their incompetence and then be thankful for the internet, some UK broadcasters really don't deserve our custom.

    Hi,

    I was under the impression the show would be continuing from mid-November 2005, as it was taking a short hiatus, due to other shows (read "junk") that CWhore wanted to air in its place.

    They'd better return it to its original slot, otherwise I'm going to be well :censored:! :mad:

    Channel 4 have confirmed it WILL NOT be back in its original slot due to very low ratings - just a 4% viewing share.

    The remaining episodes are likely to turn up on E4, More4 or overnight on Channel 4.

    Well with the lack of promotion (compared to other recent US imports) it's amazing anyone knew about it:)

    Hi,

    I'm angry at CWhore for ruining yet another great US show! :mad: The thrid episode, dealing with the rapist, was shockingly brilliant, and genuinely uncomfortable viewing, but also the finest episode so far.

    I'd like top recommend any viewer annoyed at CWhore's decision, to visit this petition and sign it! The more people we get, the better we can do to use it against the station that's ruining UK viewers chances of seeing great US shows!

    Just another reason to move away from UK broadcasting and find alternative sources to view, be it imported DVDs or the ever evil downloads
