Channel 4 are airing season 4 in the usual 6pm weekday slot, returning to C4 after a couple of years away.

On Sunday mornings and lunchtimes on C4, we get season 2. 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 and other unsuitable-before-the-watershed episodes on C4, and a few repeats over 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
 23rd January to 10th February 2023


SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, 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 27, in two concurrent runs - one primetime (6:30pm and later, except Saturday), one out-of-primetime (pre-6:30pm). Following that it's season 20, and then season 6. We also get some season 33 as a weekend utility player.

And, of course, more excitingly: Sky's premiere run of season 34 continues! We have a new episode each Sunday, repeated the following Friday (precise times vary slightly):

  • "One Angry Lisa" is repeated at 7pm on Friday 27th
  • "Lisa the Boy Scout" premieres at 7pm on Sunday 29th, and is repeated at 7pm on Friday 3rd
  • "The King of Nice" premieres at 6pm on Sunday 5th, and is repeated at 7pm on Friday 10th

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. 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.
