    This refers to time zones in the US.

    Television time is usually stated in eastern time. The "c" stands for central time, which is one hour earlier.

    To amplify Mike's resonse a bit, the television show listed airs at 9:00 on Wednesday in the Eastern time zone. It airs at 8:00 in the Central zone, at 7:00 in the Mountain zone, and 6:00 Pacific. Here is a map showing the different time zones in the U.S.
