LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

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

Currently airing: season 23, in two concurrent runs: one primetime (6:30pm and later, except Saturday), one out-of-primetime (pre-6:30pm, plus Saturday evenings). That's followed by season 5, and then season 6, occupying those same slots. There's also a Lisa-themed triple for International Women's Day, on Monday 8th.

The UK premiere run of season 32 continues, following the Christmas episode "preview" in December. Much like last year, episodes premiere on Fridays at 8pm, and are repeated the following Sunday evening. We have the following on deck:

  • "The Road to Cincinnati" on Friday 5th at 8pm, repeated Sunday 7th at 7:30pm
  • "Sorry Not Sorry" on Friday 12th at 8pm, repeated Sunday 14th at 7:30pm
  • "The Dad-Feelings Limited" on Friday 19th at 8pm, repeated Sunday 21st at 7:30pm

Episodes starting between midnight and 5:30am are listed as part of the previous day's schedule, similar to most print TV guides. As ever, note that episodes from mid-season 20 onwards are simulcast on Sky 1 HD in High Definition.
