This means that an offer was accepted on a home, but the seller still has an opportunity to market their home for sale to other prospective buyers. "Show" status, under the CT MLS system, is the first stage of being on deposit. A seller has accepted an offer, but the offer is contingent on a number of factors including: home inspection, financing contingencies, attorney approval & the buyer putting forth all deposit money. Until these contingencies are met, the seller's agent will continue to market the home. Homes on "Show" Status are still featured in internet advertising, and many agents still allow prospective buyers to preview the home.
When a home goes on "DEPOS" on "ON DEPOSIT" status, then the home is no longer marketed to buyers.

It means the house is under deposit, however the listing agent is indicating that it should still be shown. Most likely there is a deposit on it but the house probably hasn't been inspected yet or the buyer's loan has not been approved yet. Both the inspection and the mortgage process are "outs" for a buyer, so the listing agent wants to make sure they cover all their bases in the case the deal falls through.
