English term or phrase: scheduling
I wonder what this word my refer to - deciding on the position of the programme perhaps. I found it in this context:

"The significance of the series was not however solely centred on the scheduling and the weekly ritual of watching and talking about the show."

or

"Indeed, this links to the ritualistic and weekly nature of the scheduling."
