Due to the constant tedium of putting out a comprehensive schedule on a weekly basis, plus Nick US frequently changing the schedule, I will now present highlights of the Rugrats episodes playing, instead of offering a full schedule. Those wanting a full schedule are advised to visit the schedule services listed below.

Here are the latest the Rugrats schedule highlights for the coming days on the following channels (click logos below for appropriate schedule):

Time Differences For Cable Viewers In Hawaii: (special thanks to Kevin Bryant)
Check your local cable company for the times Rugrats (and other Nick shows) is played on your system. Some systems delay the feed so the timing is the same as the times given in ET / PT or CT, while others show the feed live, directly from the Eastern or Pacific feed.
County: Time Difference From Pacific Time:
Oahu 0
Maui & Kauai -2 (During DST: -3)
Hawaii (The Big Island) -2 (During DST: -3)
Some cable systems use the Eastern feed: -5 (During DST: -6)

Special Note To Cable Viewers In The Mountain & Alaska Time Zones:

Check with your local cable company for the feed your local cable company uses. In the Mountain Time Zone, showtime may be either 2 hours earlier or 1 hour later than posted. In Alaska, it's 1 hour earlier or 4 hours earlier.

Special Note To Caribbean Viewers:

Viewers in the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands get the US Nick (which includes Nick-At-Nite), while viewers in Bermuda get either the Latin American version (on cable, which presents different shows at different times and has no Nick-At-Nite) or the US version (on C-Band or small-dish satellite). In other islands, check local listings.

5. All programs closed-captioned and in stereo (where available).

6. Telecasts on Nick US also include a descriptive audio soundtrack, for the blind and visually-impaired, and can be accessed through the SAP function of newer TVs and VCRs (where available).
