Hello all,
I can't find this term. It could be shceduling costs? Context follows, thanks in advance,

Scheduling costs

"Scheduling costs" throws up about 1,160 hits on Google when sought in conjunction with 'television'...
'Coûts de grille' appears to be used in exactly the same type of context in the 1,140 or so hits it generates (when sought in conjunction with 'télévision').
I would go with your (intelligent) 'guess'...
