First-run syndication refers to programs that run on individual stations as opposed to a particular network in their initial broadcast. This means that a show that is syndicated, like Jeopardy!, may run on an ABC station in one market but a CBS station in another or an independent station in another. The nature of syndicated shows means that it will not be on at the same time everywhere, as each individual station will choose when it airs.
