1.33 ER on International television

[NOTE: The information here is only as good (or bad) as the
international ER viewers who notify me of schedule changes, make it.
I will be glad to revise it when I get those viewers' email, but
unless the information can be verified through "official" sources,
the listings below will stand as written]:

*CANADA
"ER" is broadcast on the Canadian Televison Network (CTV)
via affiliates throughout Canada at 10:00 pm on Thursday in all
respective time zones.

A French-language version of "ER" ("Salle d'urgence"),
which is one season behind its English-language counterpart, is
currently broadcast on the Quebec channel TQS on Sunday nights; as
soon as the new episodes begin in September, it will be on Monday
nights at 9:00 pm.
-(Information courtesy Talitha Cumi).

In Saskatchewan, CBS is rerunning ER on Saturdays and Sundays
at 9:37 CST. [What a *weird* time to start]...According to a TV
Times (the Canadian TV guide) schedule, this Saturday and Sunday bit
will be a continuing thing. I am thrilled about this because we
don't get TNT in Canada, and are missing out on the reruns during
the week.
-(Information courtesy Vanessa Rey).

An addendum to the above, from Vanessa:
"Uh-oh.
I read the FAQ update today.....oops. The information on the FAQ
in regards to the international ER showings in Canada is now
incorrect because of the time change. Here's all I know:

I am getting ER now Saturdays and Sundays. On Saturdays, we used
to get ER at 5:00 P.M. Now, because of the time change we get it
at 6:00 P.M. On Sundays, we get ER at 10:37, previously 9:37.
When I last e-mailed you around the beginning of October, we
were getting ER 9:37 on both Saturday and Sunday. This lasted
for a few weeks, and then for some unknown reason, ER on
Saturdays was bumped to 5:00 P.M. The Sunday time remained the
same (9:37).

Confusing, eh?
[Nahhhh...I followed...every...word...of...thaaaaa...]
Saskatchewanians (I luv that word) are the only people who do not
switch their clocks back to Standard time. No one here changed
their clocks on Saturday. This does affect our TV schedule.
During Daylight Savings time, I get ER at 8:00 on NBC and at 9:00
on CTV, but during standard time, I get ER on both NBC and CTV at
9:00.

The way I look at it, during DST, American programs on American
networks (NBC, CBS, ABC) come on an hour earlier. During ST, the
come on one hour later. Canadian networks stay the same all year
long. So, because CBS is an American network, all their programs
are an hour later here.

Because Saskatchewan is the only one to whom this applies to, the
above info might not be that all that important for the FAQ. You
will Definitely want to check with some official sources. A good
one might be the TV Times website": <http://www.tvtimesonline.com>

[Thanks Vanessa. I think.]
