ABC has it listed as starting at 9/8c, but it's usual schedule is I believe 10/9c. So it seems to me it starts an hour earlier than usual.

What does that mean?

i will star checking at 10 myy time, 2 hours earlier he regular time to be sure.

Not sure. I believe the 'c' stands for Central and it has something to do with the huge size of America, the time difference between eas and west-coast and the time when it's broadcast.

I believe that the 'usual' time mentioned is 10 pm (9pm central time), so if tonight starts at 9 pm (8pm central) than it seems that it starts an hour earlier than usual. Does that make any sense?

I guess it's just a problem I'm unfamiliar with in my tiny little country. :)

so excited!
And you're right with the timing: 'c' stands for central time zone. In the eastern half of the US times are written as 'time eastern/ time central' to denote that the show is on at time X eastern and one hour later in central time. It saves on having to run more advertisements I guess. I live in central time, and I have this problem all the time when I read TV listings which are on eastern time - I go to watch a show and find that it was on an hour ago! That being said, central time has major advantages for people like me who like to be in bed at a reasonable hour - major tv broadcasts that tend to be on late, like the Oscars, are over by a decent time.
So my superfluous ramblings made short - it will be on one hour earlier than normal.
happy viewing!

Thanks for the explanation. I vaguely knew it was something like that. It of course make sense, with America being so big, but for me it's still a strange idea. :)
