 Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD: Schedule Status & Complete Listings
 27th November to 22nd December 2017


SEASON RIGHTS: 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28
SOURCE: Digiguide

Sky1 are currently generally airing six episodes on weekdays: at 5pm, from 6:30pm to 8pm, and two more around 11pm. Fridays also have an additional episode at 8pm. Saturdays currently have a double-bill from 7:05pm, while Sundays have three episodes in the morning (usually starting around 9:30am), and five episodes in the evening from 5:30pm.

Sky1 are currently primarily airing season 9. The 6:30, 7 and 7:30pm weekday and Sunday episodes, and the 7 and 7:30pm Saturday slots comprise the primary run of the season; there's also a repeat run, on a one-to-two day delay behind the primetime run, that comprises the late-night doubles, Sunday morning triples and the Sunday 5:30pm/6pm slots. See the schedule below for the full details - it can get confusing! In short, there's more Simpsons on the regular Sky1 schedule than ever before - but as most episodes are now getting two outings per run, you won't be too worried about missing out on some broadcasts. This rebroadcast-heavy schedule continues for the foreseeable, as season 10 follows, in both concurrent runs, and then season 2. Clearly Sky1 sees value in making late-night Simpsons a permanent fixture of the schedule.

The only slots in the schedule that don't fit into that complex format are the Friday 8pm slot (and sometimes 7:30pm too), which are home to a season 28 rerun; and the occasional late-night-only episode.

Whew! All of that scheduling news, but no word yet on season 29, which recently started in the USA - we'll probably see it hit UK shores very soon, though, either over Christmas or in January. As ever, note that episodes from mid-season 20 onwards are now simulcast on Sky 1 HD in High Definition.
