Were they doing it for another time zones benefit? I am a spoiled north eastern american who feels the entire world should revolve around our timezone so these issues are foreign to me.
Sounds like they did that so it's be in primetime, or at least close, in the UK. I believe the UK is three hours behind Moscow.
