 Channel 4 & 4seven: Schedule Status & Listings
 15th July to 2nd August 2024

SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 25, 29, 30, 31
LISTINGS SOURCE: Channel4.com, Digiguide

Channel 4 are currently primarily airing season 30 in the show's now-settled 6:30pm weekday home.

On Sunday mornings and lunchtimes on C4, we currently get episodes from (primarily) seasons 7 and 25, the former returning from Sky. And on Saturday mornings, we generally see repeats of episodes broadcast the prior Sunday.

From Monday July 29th, there are weekday morning double-bills from 11:10am, for the summer holidays. These are comprised of season 25 and season 19, one of each per day. There are also a handful of late-night episodes on C4 from a range of seasons - some episodes they clearly deem unsuitable for the 6pm slot, and some repeats of episodes aired in "normal" timeslots. 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
 15th July to 2nd August 2024


SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, 32, 33, 34, 35
LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky Showcase have settled on typically broadcasting four episodes a weeknight, from 5pm to 6pm and then 7pm to 8pm. (The US Office occupies the 6pm hour.)

Weekends are less predictable, typically home to six or more episodes throughout the afternoon and evening, but occasionally fewer due to sports coverage.

Currently airing: season 34, in two concurrent runs - generally, that's one run in the 5pm, 7pm or 7:30pm weekday slots, and a repeat either in a 5:30pm weekday slot, or on a weekend. Following that run is season 26.

The UK premiere run of season 35 has concluded. A repeat run of the full season will no doubt follow in the coming months, before its arrival on Disney+ in November.

As always, some episodes deemed unsuitable for daytime broadcast are skipped, and some episodes don't get a second run depending on Sky's weekend schedule. 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.
