    When did CTV acquired the short-lived NBC sitcom "Bent" ?

    Apparently WKBW who is producing the show started fuming when they found out that ABC sold the broadcasting rights in Canada to CTV. They wanted to use the time to sell advertisements on both sides of the border, ABC did agree to cover the half the costs and broadcast across the network, but there is already indications that this could be a flop outside Western New York.

    Probably in the same way that they acquired Best Friends Forever, which was very quietly on the shelf, considering that both shows were held off until midseason, and went on to be cancelled. This was part of the package that Bell Media acquired from Universal Television for the 2011-2012 season, which consisted of NBC sitcoms, including Up All Night and Whitney, both of which have been renewed.

    The only other Universal property from last season was the drama Prime Suspect and that was picked up by Shaw Media for Global. Contrary to previous years, Rogers took a pass on the shows produced by the studio.

    Can't say that I'm surprised. I did watch Take Me Out and found the premise interesting, but at the same time cheesy. But I'm guessing the ratings must have been bad for CTV, and they would have been better off with Big Bang Theory reruns in simulcast.

    Makes more sense to have the show moved to CTV Two, since it airs The Choice, which FOX has opted to give a 2-minute head start on the other networks, so CTV Two can follow suit by running both shows in simulcast.

    Source? Sounds quite unlikely given the large tax disadvantage that Canadian companies are subject to for purchasing foreign advertising.

    A physical person. But do you really think that commercials that air in any given hour is 100% Canadian? Most advertisements are duplicates that air on U.S. networks, sure you can't get AT&T, nor would you want to if you could.

    Most local area business in Buffalo have been trying to advertise in Southern Ontario for a few years now, and with more effort with the dollar being on par, however Canadian networks discard them in favor of big brand name advertisers, even if there willing to pay for the same rate.


    But turning back to the program in question, I really don't think this will get high enough ratings outside Southern Ontario/ Western New York unless the volume of people watching overall is low.

    The Canadian Income Tax act allows companies to deduct the cost of advertising on Canadian television stations, but not US ones. Therefore, ad rates charged by border stations have to be significantly less in order to attract Canadian advertisers. As a result, it's rare for Canadian companies to advertise on US stations.

    It is true that the ads themselves for many products may be similar on both sides of the border. However, take an example of a Diet Coke ad. If you see the ad on CTV Toronto, it will have been paid from the marketing budget of Coca Cola Canada, which would receive a tax deduction for placing the ad. The same (or similar) ad placed on NBC Buffalo will have been paid for by Coca Cola US. The US border stations do attract a small amount of Canadian advertising, but it is either for products or services aimed at a US market (eg Marineland), or has been discounted in order to make up for the loss of a tax break.

    Also, network shows like the ABC special often don't have much local advertising time. National ads that air network-wide make up most of the advertising inventory on a typical show.

    I didn't imply that Canadian companies are going to advertise on U.S. border stations to Canadians. What I was getting at was a lot of local business in WNY have been trying to advertise to Canadians but haven't been able to because Coca Cola get preferential treatment over them on Canadian stations. They wanted to use this event to finally get pass the subsim block to advertise to Canadians.
