 Channel 4 & 4seven: Schedule Status & Listings
 27th November to 23rd December 2022

SEASON RIGHTS: 2, 3, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, 30
LISTINGS SOURCE: Channel4.com, Digiguide

Channel 4 continue the free-to-air premiere of season 30 in the usual 6pm weekday slot. Take a look at this blog post by Christopher Wickham, friend of the page, for some context on what C4 might see fit to censor from this run. The run concludes on the 30th, and is followed by a resumption of season 23; then, following that, it's season 16.

On Sunday mornings and lunchtimes on C4, we get a mixture, primarily from seasons 18 and 22. Saturday mornings are usually home to repeats of episodes broadcast the prior Sunday. There are a few late night episodes, too, including some Treehouse of Horrors on C4, and a few repeats over on 4seven.

No word yet on any special timings for Christmas, but it does look as it C4 will be airing seasonal episodes in the week leading up to the day.

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.

LISTINGS SOURCE: RadioTimes.com, Digiguide

RTÉ2 are currently in the middle of their premiere broadcast of season 30 in the usual weekday 4:30pm slot, resuming after a break for the World Cup later this week. It appears that season 18 will follow.

 Sky Showcase: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 27th November to 23rd December 2022


SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 24, 25, 26, 31, 32, 33, 34
LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky Showcase currently broadcast four episodes on most weekdays: one at 5pm, then three from 6:30pm to 8pm (sometimes four, and sometimes in 25-minute slots instead of half-hours). Weekends are a little less predictable, but we usually get a decent number of episodes - usually between three and eight a day, spread across the morning, afternoon and evening.

Currently airing: season 14, in two concurrent runs - one primetime (6:30pm and later, except Saturday), one out-of-primetime (pre-6:30pm). Following that it's season 13, then season 25, and then season 26.

Things change somewhat for the Christmas holidays, though, with season 26 continuing in the mornings, and Christmas episodes in the afternoons. I'll have a full breakdown of the festive schedule next update.

Look out for some additional episodes in the 8pm hour on certain days, and some Friday timings vary. As always, some episodes deemed unsuitable for daytime broadcast are skipped.

No word yet on season 34, which has begun in the US - the last few years, we've waited until December to start the season, and I expect that pattern to continue. 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.
