    Talking 8/7c

    Prison Break return FRIDAY APRIL 17th 8/7c with all-new episodes!

    Hi, everybody,

    I saw this sentence at Fox, and I have question about this "8/7c". What does this one mean? I can not figure it out.

    Thanks for your help.

    At a guess, I'd say it might be something to do with time-zones - c for Central...

    Absolutely right, Bob.

    8 pm Eastern time, which is 7 pm Central time. So someone in Maine can talk to someone in Chicago on the phone and watch the show "together" (at the same time), even though it's an hour earlier in Chicago.

    These shows are shown two or three hours later in the other time zones. So that person in Maine can call their friend in California and tell her the whole story before it ever comes on the air for the Californian.

    Barb_D, thank you for taking your time to have a look at my question.

    Thanks, I get it now!

    And Bobk, nice day!
