Hi I am new to America and I need some help with this because I don't quite get it..

When they say "it's on at 9/8 central" what time is that? I live in NJ and I've been seeing that on TV all the time. 9/8 central, 8/7 central etc..

Thanks for your help!

  • people in the central time zone, there are 3 time zones in ameariac, anyway, the people in the central time zone are always either and hour ahead or behind someone else. so if youre in new jersey, youre in the eastren time zone, so your show would come on at the later time 9pm, and the ppl in the central time zone, it is only 8pm there for them. So just know when watching tv for your time zone you are the later of the times. I hope this makes sense, ive never tried to explain this before haha.

  • This means it is on at 9 EST (New Jersey is EST) and 8 central time.... or whatever the hours are. Hope that helps!

  • New Jersey is in the Eastern time zone. I live in Oklahoma so I'm in the Central time zone and our time is one hour earlier than your time.
