    That indicates that a television broadcast will be televised at 9 on the East coast of the United States, and at 8 in the Central States. You are right, time zones is the reason why broadcasts appear at different times. We have time zones because of the size of the country. The east coast has the earliest time because the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so the east coast sees the sun first.

    The 9 in the example would mean 9:00 on the east coast. & 8c would mean 8:00, central time. :D
