Corrie / Olympics Schedule Change

From Rusty at the CEEB:

On Sunday, August 3:

“This is the last Sunday Coronation Street telecast before the
Olympics.  Corrie will continue to air the week of August 4 at 7:00 pm,
but these episodes will not be repeated on Sunday.  Viewers who miss the
prime time episodes can catch them ‘on-line’ at cbc.ca/coronation.
Corrie returns on Sunday, August 31.” [Meaning the Sunday omnibus comes
back that date. Regular scheduling will resume August 25th.]

On the Wednesday, August 6th:

“Due to coverage of the Opening Ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics,
Coronation Street will not be seen on Friday, August 8.  Two episodes
will air tomorrow, Thursday, beginning at the regular time.”

And finally, on Thursday, August 7th:

“Due to live coverage of the 2008 Olympic Games from Beijing,
Coronation Street will not be seen the weeks of August 11 and August 17.
 Corrie returns on Monday, August 25 at its regular time.”

    So does that mean a double episode tonight?

  2. Gayle says:

    John, same question here from me.

  3. John says:

    Oh, wait. I misread the info. It means during next Wednesday’s broadcast, they’ll announce that Thursday, August 7th, will see two episodes.

  4. Lin says:

    They could not have made it more confusing if they tried..

  5. Diane/tvor says:

    So this week’s omnibus will never be seen and the omni on August 31 is the one for August 25 to 29th?

  6. mary and john says:

    So we fall even further behind. Why doesn’t CBC catch up on Coronation Street during the summer months instead of showing incessant repeats of prior, paricularly comedy, programming, some of which is months, if not years, out of date?
