 Channel 4 & 4seven: Schedule Status & Listings
 22nd November to 17th December 2021

SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, 29
LISTINGS SOURCE: Channel4.com, Digiguide

Channel 4 are currently airing season 22 on weekdays at 6pm. From Monday 22nd November, however, that run takes a break, as it's time for the terrestrial premiere of season 29 - woo-hoo! S29 runs in the regular weekday 6pm slot.

On weekend mornings and lunchtimes on C4, we get season 10. Note that unlike most weekday runs, the season 29 run does not get weekend repeats - so for now, you'll need to tune in on 6pm weekdays.

There's late-night episodes on Monday 22nd, Monday 29th, Friday 3rd and Thursday 9th - mostly episodes from the daytime and evening runs that C4 feel are unsuitable for pre-watershed broadcast. Additionally, the movie shows up on E4 on the 28th and 4th - see details below. There's nothing currently on 4seven.

Episodes starting between midnight and 5:30am are listed as part of the previous day's schedule, similar to most print TV guides. Note that all episodes that air on Channel 4 are simulcast on Channel 4 HD and can be viewed one hour later on their timeshift service, Channel 4 +1.

 Sky Showcase: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 22nd November to 17th December 2021


SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 30, 31, 32
LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky Showcase currently broadcast four episodes on weekdays: one at 5pm, then three from 6:30pm to 8pm. Weekends are a little less predictable, but we usually get a decent number of episodes - usually between five and nine a day, spread across the morning, afternoon and evening.

Currently airing: season 4, in two concurrent runs - one primetime (6:30pm and later, except Saturday), one out-of-primetime (pre-6:30pm, plus Saturday evenings). After that, it's season 5, and then season 13. There's also season 30 as a utility player, occasionally filling up spaces on weekends; and we sometimes get additional 8pm double-bills, mostly on Thursdays, that show episodes Sky appear to prefer not to broadcast before that time.

Season 33 has begun on Fox in the US, but there's no word yet on when it'll start here - though we will likely get word in the next week or two. Note that episodes starting between midnight and 5:30am are listed as part of the previous day's schedule, similar to most print TV guides.
