    Can we also say dinner slot? or gardening slot?

    It is the time slot allocated to that theme/programme in the early morning. There is no similar concept for evening broadcasting.

    I can well believe that the programmers will talk about the gardening slot or the comedy slot or the children's show slot when planning their programmes.
