LISTINGS SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky 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 six and eleven a day, spread across the morning, afternoon and evening.

Currently airing: season 7, 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 17, and then season 18, occupying those same slots.

The UK premiere run of season 32 approaches its conclusion - there's just a few episodes left to go. Much like last year, episodes premiere on Fridays at 8pm, and are repeated the following Sunday. We have the following on deck:

  • "Panic on the Streets of Springfield" on Friday 14th at 8pm, repeated Sunday 16th at 7:30pm
  • "Mother and Child Reunion" on Friday 21st at 8pm, repeated Sunday 23rd at 7:30pm
  • "The Man from GRAMPA" on Friday 28th at 8pm, repeated Sunday 30th at time TBC

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.
