    i have always wondered what that kind of thing means...

    for example.. if the show is 9/8 central, what does that actually mean. is it broadcast a 9 oclock in each state, and where is it broadcast at 8? what about the east or west coast times??


    please explain if you know

    yeah it's 9 eastern time 8 central

    then you would have 7 mountain and 6 pacific

    I'm in California, so I'm three hours behind the east coast.

    I thought it is 8 Mountain and 9 Pacific and that they tape delay the broadcasts in these regions.

    Otherwise you will end up with the late night shows being shown in Pacific from 8.35pm :hmmm:

    Unless, of course, you have a live broadcast.

    Yes, Mountain and Pacific times show at Eastern time, save live shows.

    Confusing time zones

    Why not show it all at 9pm.

    And have time shift channels like they do here. NBC +1 :yep:
