Coronation Street Fall CBC schedule

note: no spoilers were used in the preparation of this post

If you're anything like me (and, for your sake, I hope you're not - ed), it's not too early to start planning fall TV viewing and organize one's evenings around the capricious CBC broadcast schedule of The Best Television Show on The Network (One on One with Peter Mansbridge? - ed).

If you have been struck by the dearth of fall programming specifics, it's hardly surprising. A search of the CBC website and official press releases reveals virtually no info on CBC's Corrie plans. Fortunately we have some true blue Corrie fans in Canada who are on the case. Tvor and Tiddsmom are two certified Corrie experts who write for the Bluenose Corrie Blogger. Their encyclopedic knowledge of Corrie makes me look like Kirk Sutherland with a memory lapse.

But I digress.. The point is that, thanks to Tvor and Tiddsmom, you can find some very good information about the fall Corrie schedule here and the exciting fact that we will be on virtual parity (timewise) with the UK by September. In fact I'd like to propose a National Canadian Corrie Day in celebration of that.

In the meantime, here are the key dates you need to keep in mind for your viewing and recording purposes:

Starting on Monday September 3, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. Coronation Street will be 30 minutes long (i.e. the official end of one-hour episodes).
Starting on Monday September 17, 2012, Coronation Street will move to its new time of 7:30 p.m.and will continue to be 30 minutes long.

As always, please check your local listings for the time and channel in your area. And many, many thanks to Bluenose Corrie Blogger for the info.
