    I am sure you guys watch some series, here's my question. When you watch abc for instance, it's written "Sunday 9/8c", and they say " Sunday 9, 8 central". What does "central" mean ? the time in NYC, LA? Thanx

    What time zone Central Standard Time (CST)?
    Central Standard Time (CST) is the Central Time Zone of the United States of America (USA). Central Standard Time (CST) is 6 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-6).

    Does Central Time observe Daylight Saving Time?
    In most states in the USA and in most provinces in Canada, Daylight-Saving Time (DST) is observed. During DST CT (or CDT) is 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-5).

    After the Summer months Central Time is shifted back by 1 hour to US Central Standard Time (CST) or (GMT-6).

    Tomorrow 9/8C veut dire que le programme est a 9 heures (heure locale) et 8 (heure du centre ou central (en anglais)). Les émissions sont présentées dans plusieurs fusaux horaires, donc, le diffuseur doit préciser. Tu peux aussi retrouver comme exemple, Sunday 9/12p. Le p, c'est l'heure du pacifique. J'espère que je t'ai aider.
