The program airs Saturdays at 10:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time, as part of the network's placeholder Crimetime Saturday block; as such, it is currently one of only two remaining first-run prime time programs airing Saturday nights on the major U.S. broadcast television networks.
Crimetime Saturday is the official branding for a programming block that started in 2004–05 on the American CBS and Canadian CTV networks between 9 and 11 p.m.
Prime time or peak time is the block of broadcast programming taking place during the middle of the evening for television programming.
The program sometimes airs two-hour editions or two consecutive one-hour editions, depending on the subject involved or to serve as counterprogramming against other networks.
In broadcast programming, counterprogramming is the practice of offering television programs to attract an audience from another television station airing a major event.
