To be honest, this news does not come as any surprise and it was only a matter of time before CBS did something.

However, this move does raise another question. Will CTV opt to shelve this season's remaining episodes of one Canadian show (The Listener)or perhaps move it to yet another timeslot in favor of simsubbing episodes of another(Flashpoint) that already aired earlier this year?

The Listener took over Flashpoint's Tuesday night timeslot in February, and then was recently moved to Fridays this month.

CBS has pulled midseason series Chaos off the schedule after three low-rated airings in the challenging Friday 8 PM time slot. The CIA dramedy most recently drew a 1.0/3 in 18-49 and 5.7 million viewers this past Friday. That was actually up a tenth in the demo from the previous week but way below what Medium and The Defenders were pulling in the slot earlier this season.

For the next two weeks, CBS will air CSI: NY repeats in the 8 PM hour, with Canadian-made backup Flashpoint stepping in May 6 with originals. CBS fought hard to land Chaos in dramatic negotiations with producer 20th Century Fox TV that lasted a couple of months last summer.
