    amazing consistency: Ctv announces canada’s premiere 2013/14 primetime lineup

    – CTV reinvents Tuesday night with MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D, THE GOLDBERGS, and TROPHY WIFE – ### – CTV nabs instant Top 20 hit PERSON OF INTEREST –

    – CTV acquires the season’s two biggest event dramas HOSTAGES and INTELLIGENCE – ### – CTV picks up three additional coveted dramas including THE TOMORROW PEOPLE, PLAYED, and BELIEVE –

    – CTV expands comedy leadership with the addition of six hilarious new series – ### – THE SOCIAL and BETHENNY bolster daytime; LATE NIGHT moves to CTV –

    – MASTERCHEF CANADA comes to CTV in winter 2014 – ### – New CTV lineup to be available on CTV GO this fall –



    TORONTO (June 6, 2013) – CTV unveiled today an amazing 2013/14 primetime schedule featuring an unparalleled level of genre diversity, timeslot strength, scheduling balance, and quality programming that builds upon the strength of Canada’s most-watched network. With more returning hits than any other network, CTV has strategically selected just four new big-buzz dramas, two new comedies, and one new unscripted series for primetime this fall, joining what has become the most stable schedule in North America. In addition to changes in daytime and adjustments to late-night, CTV also announced today it has nabbed last season’s fastest-growing sophomore series PERSON OF INTEREST, adding an instant Top 20 hit to its schedule. CTV’s 2013/14 schedule will be presented by Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports, at the #CTVUpfront presentation today in Toronto.

    “Year-after-year, CTV offers programming consistency and durability not found anywhere else,” said King. “It’s tough to crack the CTV lineup, but when programs do, they have the best chance of success on CTV. We’re very excited to bring a powerhouse lineup to viewers and advertisers that features some of the most compelling programming available.”

    Although CTV is scheduling the least amount of new programs compared to any other Canadian network this fall, its refreshed schedule still features new programming on every night of the week (Monday-Friday), and in every timeslot (7-11 p.m.). In total, CTV’s fall schedule features 17.5 hours of simulcast programming weekly, more than any other Canadian network.

    CTV’s new 2013/14 programs reflect an enviable pedigree of some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Marvel Studios; producers J.J. Abrams, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Nolan, and Joss Whedon; acclaimed actors Kirstie Alley, Toni Collette, Tate Donovan, Michael Emerson, Clark Gregg, Marg Helgenberger, Josh Holloway, Dylan McDermott, Christopher Meloni, and Bradley Whitford; hot newcomers Robbie Amell, Jake McLaughlin, and Meghan Ory; and brands unto themselves, Bethenny Frankel and Gordon Ramsay, among others.

    As announced earlier today, CTV’s entire new lineup will be available on the network’s new TV Everywhere platform CTV GO, scheduled to debut this fall. With CTV GO, viewers will be able to access a live stream of CTV’s broadcast channel and more premium on-demand programming than ever before.

    CTV also announced today it is moving DANCING WITH THE STARS, THE VOICE (Tuesdays), THE X FACTOR, AMERICAN IDOL, and UNDERCOVER BOSS to CTV Two this fall to create an all-new, unique, complementary schedule for its companion network.

    Ctv and ctv two program descriptions

    CTV AND CTV TWO PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

    Jun · 06 · 13

    BETHENNY
    As host of BETHENNY, Bethenny Frankel encourages her audience to love and accept themselves while taking risks to make an impact on their own lives, as well as their family, their friends, and their communities. Maintaining a sense of humour, candidness, and a distinctive voice and point of view — the show covers the topics that women care about most, all through Frankel’s own relatable personal and professional life experiences. She’ll be talking about everything from love and relationships, to celebrities and pop culture, to beauty and fitness. From fun and spontaneous celebrity interviews to informative takeaways on health and relationship issues, BETHENNY is quickly becoming the go-to destination for women every day to learn, laugh, feel inspired, be transformed and ultimately, in Frankel’s words, “always go for it.”
    Cast: Bethenny Frankel (THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK CITY), as host

    BELIEVE

    Levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, and even predict the future... Since she was 2 years old, Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) has had gifts she could neither fully understand, nor control. Raised by a small group known as the “True Believers,” the orphaned girl has been safeguarded from harmful outsiders who would use her forces for personal gain. But now that she is 10, her powers have become stronger and the threat has grown more dangerous. With her life and future now in jeopardy, the “Believers” turn to the only person they see fit to be her full-time protector. Tate (Jake McLaughlin), a wrongfully imprisoned death row inmate who’s lost his will, is reluctant until he witnesses one of her extraordinary abilities. Bo sees people for who they truly are... and who they may become. In BELIEVE, Tate and Bo embark on a journey, traveling from city to city, every place they stop and everyone they meet will be changed forever. They’ll have to keep going to stay one step ahead of the sinister forces after Bo’s power... because it will take a miracle to keep them safe forever.

    THE GOLDBERGS
    Before there were parenting blogs, trophies for showing up, or peanut allergies, there were THE GOLDBERGS. For geeky 11-year old Adam (Sean Giambrone), these were his wonder years and he faced them armed with a video camera to capture all the crazy. The Goldbergs are a loving family like any other, but with a lot more yelling. Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is a classic “smother”; an overbearing, overprotective matriarch who rules this brood with 100% authority and zero sense of boundaries. Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) is a gruff, hot-tempered father who is learning how to parent without screaming after a recent health scare… and having little luck. Sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) is 17, hot, terrifying, and not one to mess with. Barry (Troy Gentile) is 16, a grade-A spaz with a classic middle child syndrome. Adam is the youngest, a camera-wielding future director who’s crushing on an older woman, 15 year-old Zoe. Rounding out the family is beloved grandfather Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan and a shameless Don Juan who’s schooling Adam in the ways of love.

    Cast: Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) as Beverly, Jeff Garlin (CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM) as Murray, George Segal (JUST SHOOT ME!) as Albert “Pops” Solomon, Hayley Orrantia (THE X FACTOR) as Erica, Troy Gentile (Good Luck Chuck) as Barry, Sean Giambrone (I Heart Shakey) as Adam

    HOSTAGES
    From executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer, HOSTAGES is a high-octane suspense drama starring Emmy® Award-winner Toni Collette as a premiere surgeon, thrust into a chilling political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by rogue FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott). Dr. Ellen Sanders (Collette) and her family are held captive in their home by Carlisle, a desperate man doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, who orders her to assassinate the President (James Naughton) when she operates on him. His highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer (Rhys Coiro), whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer (Billy Brown), an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Maria Gonzales (Sandrine Holt), a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team. With her family’s life in peril, Ellen faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma in order to save her overbearing husband Brian (Tate Donovan), her secretive daughter Morgan (Quinn Shephard), and her not-so-innocent son Jake (Mateus Ward). In this high-stakes standoff between Ellen and Carlisle, fraught with tremendous national and personal consequences, the choices between right and wrong become even more blurred.

He can hack into any data center and access key Intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies. Leading the elite government cyber-security agency created to support him is Director Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger), a straightforward and efficient boss who oversees the unit’s missions. Strand assigns Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), a Secret Service agent, to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behaviour and disregard for protocol. Other skilled members of the Cybercom team include Chris Jameson (Michael Rady) and Gonzalo “Gonzo” Rodriguez (James Martinez), two resourceful federal investigators. The brains behind the design of the chip is Dr. Shenendoah Cassidy (John Billingsley), whose son, Nelson (PJ Byrne), is jealous of Gabriel’s prominent place in his father’s life.

    MIXOLOGY
    MIXOLOGY is a single camera comedy series set in one bar, one night, with ten single people. Welcome to Mix, a high-end bar in Manhattan’s trendy meat-packing district and the backdrop for a sexy new high-concept comedy from the writers of The Hangover. Recently dumped by his fiancé, Tom (Blake Lee) hasn’t been out on the town in a decade. His best friends, handsome and confident Cal (Craig Frank) and fast-talking Bruce (Andrew Santino), are throwing Tom back into the dating pool whether he likes it or not. Tom’s first encounter is with Maya (Mercedes Masohn), an attorney who’s as beautiful as she is brutal. Before long, Tom is in tears. After that, it only gets worse. Rounding out Mix’s chic crowd is Maya’s engaged-for-now friend Liv (Kate Simses); aggressive single mom Jessica; her younger, naive sister Janey; bubbly cocktail waitress Kacey (Vanessa Lengies); dark, mysterious bartender Dominic; and failed internet entrepreneur Ron (Adam Campbell), who’s drunk and having the worst night of his life. Each episode will highlight two characters meeting for the first time. The pilot focuses on Tom meeting Maya, but across the course of this one night –and the entire season – each of our five guys will meet each of our five girls. Will they find love? Will they find a warm bed for the night? Will they find a cold drink in their face? All questions will be answered by the season finale of this highly intoxicating new comedy.

    PERSON OF INTEREST

    PERSON OF INTEREST is a crime thriller about a presumed-dead former CIA agent who teams up with a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes by using their own brand of vigilante justice. John Reese’s (Jim Caviezel) special training in covert operations appeals to Harold Finch (Michael Emerson), a software genius who invented a program called “The Machine,” that can identify people about to be involved in violent crimes. Tapping into ubiquitous surveillance feeds throughout the city, the two work outside of the law, combining Reese’s black ops skills with Finch’s technological prowess and unlimited wealth to unravel the mystery of the person of interest, and stop the crime before it happens. Reese’s actions draw the attention of the NYPD, including by-the-book homicide detective Joss Carter (Taraji P. Henson). After initially pursuing Reese as a criminal, Carter now shares in his pursuit of justice. Also working with Reese and Finch is Detective Lionel Fusco (Kevin Chapman), a dirty cop who began as Reese’s unwilling pawn, but now views their missions as a chance at personal redemption. With infinite crimes to investigate, Reese and Finch find that the right person, with the right information, at the right time, can change everything.

    PLAYED

    In PLAYED, the CIU (Covert Investigations Unit) risks going undercover to infiltrate and bring down criminal organizations. In this new style of short-term, high-intensity undercover work, each covert “play” is crafted quickly and executed at an even faster pace. Placed into various worlds of crime without a safety net, the cops are in constant danger, as they repeatedly go off the grid. Wearing wires, coaxing confessions, and setting up stings, the cops of the CIU must think quickly, talk smoothly, and rely on pure instinct. They slip in and out of characters so often that, sometimes, they lose track of who they really are.

    The team of highly-skilled and brave detectives is led by Vincent Walsh as undercover cop John Moreland. At the top of his game, John has great instincts and is usually in charge, but when the new Covert Investigations Unit is established, it is the consummate strategist Rebecca Ellis (Chandra West, NYPD BLUE, JOHN FROM CINCINNATI) who is given the reigns, resulting in tense conflict between the two. Rebecca keeps John on track by balancing his from-the-hip instincts with her keen intellect. However, ultimately Rebecca and John need each other to pull off their risky plays and they know it.
    Cast: Vincent Walsh (DECEPTION, LOST GIRL) as John Moreland, Chandra West (NYPD BLUE, JOHN FROM CINCINNATI) as Rebecca Ellis, Lisa Marcos (THE LISTENER, FLASHPOINT) as Maria Cortez, Dwain Murphy (COMBAT HOSPITAL, NIKITA) as Daniel Price, Agam Darshi (SANCTUARY, RING OF FIRE) as Khali Bhatt, and Adam Butcher (REPUBLIC OF DOYLE, BOMB GIRLS) as Jesse Calvert.

    SPUN OUT
    In the multi-cam workplace comedy SPUN OUT, failed writer Beckett Ryan (Paul Campbell) joins DLPR, a public relations agency staffed with people who can spin everyone’s problems but their own. From the eccentric company figurehead Dave (Dave Foley) and his insecure daughter Stephanie (Rebecca Dalton), to PR shark Nelson (Al Mukadam) and Dave’s ever-loyal assistant Bryce (JP Manoux), the DLPR office has no shortage of personality. No matter how bizarre the cases the agency takes on are, they pale in comparison to the workplace romances, rivalries, personal successes, and often hilarious failures of the close-knit and dysfunctional colleagues at DLPR. SPUN OUT also stars Holly Deveaux as Beckett’s unapologetic and brazen ex-girlfriend Abby and Darcy Michael (Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules) as the office’s loveable loser Gordon.

    SURVIVING JACK
    SURVIVING JACK is a new single-camera comedy set in 1990s Southern California about a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before “coming of age” was something you could Google. Jack Dunlevy (Emmy® Award nominee Christopher Meloni) up to this point, has been the parent who’s left for work early, come home late, eaten the big piece of chicken, yelled at his kids, and gone to bed. But after years of deftly raising and running the family, his wife Joanne (Casting TBA) is going back to law school, leaving Jack as a full-time parent for the very first time. Jack’s teenage son, Frankie (Connor Buckley), is just starting his freshman year in high school. Fortunately, no matter how embarrassing the situation Frankie gets himself into, Jack is there to pick up the pieces and lead his son to manhood…with the least gentle hand possible. Although Jack may be unorthodox, unfiltered and sometimes even unkind in his approach, his intentions are always good. Only time will tell if Jack’s blunt and unpredictable parenting style will keep his kids out of trouble, or if Joanne will have to put down the law books and step in to keep the family order. Until then, Jack’s the dad the Dunlevy kids always wished they had – most of the time. As someone who is used to taking care of people with cancer, Jack’s got this…right?

    THE SOCIAL

    THE SOCIAL provides an innovative outlet for viewers who love a friendly debate through social media, e-mail, and text messaging – no topic is off limits! – as the only program of its kind on English Canadian conventional television. During each show, the four co-hosts ask the questions on viewers’ minds, and provide their own spin on the latest headlines and topics. The show opens with a lively round-table debate and discussion by the co-hosts of the day’s top news stories. THE SOCIAL then features celebrity interviews and discussion about lifestyle topics inspired by viewers. During the live program, the panel checks in on various social media platforms, such as Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. The topical feel of the show allows the co-hosts to engage with viewers through social media, e-mail, and text messaging on a real-time basis. THE SOCIAL will also air live on CTV Mobile and will be available on demand on CTV.ca and TheLoop.ca.

    THE TOMORROW PEOPLE

    In THE TOMORROW PEOPLE, Stephen Jameson (Robbie Amell) starts hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up. In desperation, he decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, which leads him to his first encounter with the Tomorrow People, John (Luke Mitchell), Cara (Peyton List), and Russell (Aaron Yoo), a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation, and telepathic communication. The Tomorrow People are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. Led by Dr. Jedikiah Price (Mark Pellegrino), Ultra sees the Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and forcing the outcast group to hide out in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface of the human world. Trading in secrets, Jedikiah offers Stephen the chance for a normal life with his family and best friend, Astrid (Madeleine Mantock), if he will help in the struggle to isolate and eradicate the Tomorrow People. On the other hand, Cara, John, and Russell offer Stephen a different type of family and a home where he truly belongs. Unwilling to turn his back on humanity or the world of the Tomorrow People, Stephen sets out on his own path – a journey that could take him into the shadowy past to uncover the truth about his father’s mysterious disappearance, or into an unknown future with the Tomorrow People.

    TROPHY WIFE
    They say the third time’s the charm and reformed party girl Kate (Malin Akerman) is hoping that’s true when she becomes the third wife of a slightly older man, Pete (Bradley Whitford), in TROPHY WIFE. They fell into each other’s arms (literally) at a karaoke bar and flash forward a year later, Kate finds herself with an insta-family complete with three stepchildren and two ex-wives. But Kate is determined to make this work and become part of the family no matter what. Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) is ex-wife number one, an intense and over-achieving former Olympic athlete and the mother of twin teenagers Hillary and Warren. Diane is quick to convey her withering disapproval of Kate’s barely tapped maternal instincts. Daughter Hillary is not a fan of her new step-mom either, despite Kate’s attempts to win her trust, and son Warren may have an erotic fixation on his dad’s beautiful, young spouse. Ex-wife number two, Jackie (Michaela Watkins), is mother to adopted son, Bert (Albert Tsai), and can pull Pete’s strings with her special blend of neurotic, new-ageyness. Juggling all this baggage is uncharted territory for Kate who finds support in the most unusual place – with her best friend Meg (Natalie Morales), a party-hearty singleton and the only woman Kate knows who has less experience with kids than she does.
    Cast: Malin Akerman (CHILDRENS HOSPITAL, Watchmen) as Kate, Bradley Whiford (THE WEST WING) as Pete, Marcia Gay Harden (DAMAGES) as Diane, Michaela Watkins (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, ENLIGHTENED) as Jackie, Natalie Morales (90210, PARKS AND RECREATION) as Meg, Ryan Scott Lee (Super 8) as Warren, Albert Tsai (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER) as Bert, Gianna LePera (MODERN FAMILY) as Hillary

    PRIMETIME LIVE: CTV TWO’S AMAZING 2013/14 SCHEDULE TO FEATURE PVR-PROOF HITS

    CTV Two becomes home to Canada’s top unscripted programs five nights a week


    CTV acquires MIKE & MOLLY and HOT IN CLEVELAND strips for CTV Two

    Top 20 hit CASTLE anchors Monday night

    Jun · 06 · 13

    **MEDIA NOTE** Watch trailers and download schedules, photography, and program descriptions for new and returning series at bellmediapr.ca. See also companion release for CTV, issued concurrently with this announcement.

    TORONTO (June 6, 2013)
    – Appointment-driven, mass-audience, PVR-proof hits, every night of the week. CTV announced today it is moving DANCING WITH THE STARS, THE VOICE (Tuesdays), THE X FACTOR, AMERICAN IDOL, and UNDERCOVER BOSS to CTV Two to create a unique, complementary new schedule for its companion network. With the acquisition of two new comedy strips, the revitalized lineup takes CTV Two in a completely new direction and immediately strengthens its schedule as Canada’s primetime home of unscripted and comedy programming. The CTV Two schedule will be presented by Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports, at the #CTVUpfront presentation today in Toronto.

    “Viewers will truly know what they are getting on CTV Two,” said King. “This is the strongest schedule yet for CTV Two, and as a result, we predict the network’s highest-ratings ever.”
    Creating a distinct personality and identity for CTV Two, the new scheduling strategy sees four Top 20 reality series find exclusive homes in core primetime on CTV Two, featuring DANCING WITH THE STARS (Mondays), THE VOICE (Tuesdays), THE X FACTOR (Wednesdays and Thursdays), and in mid-season, AMERICAN IDOL, all in simulcast. On Fridays, CTV Two will feature both UNDERCOVER BOSS and SHARK TANK, both in simulcast. Overall, CTV Two will feature 13 hours of simulcast each week.

    The scheduling strategy also extends to new comedy programming on CTV Two. CTV announced today it has acquired the syndication rights to hit series MIKE & MOLLY and HOT IN CLEVELAND, two exclusive strip comedies coming to Canada one year before the rest of the world. Meanwhile, an additional airing of THE BIG BANG THEORY strip will now also air on CTV Two.
    The new CTV Two schedule complements that of its sister network CTV. Viewers can watch encore episodes of THE BIG BANG THEORY on CTV Two at 7 p.m., delivering audience momentum from Canada’s most-watched program into primetime on CTV Two. Later in the evening, the MIKE & MOLLY and HOT IN CLEVELAND strips provide comedic counter-programming to 10 p.m. dramas on other networks. Additional comedies on CTV Two include Canada’s #1 new comedy series ANGER MANAGEMENT, and new CTV Original Comedy SATISFACTION.
    The CTV Two schedule will continue to feature drama programming, and is strengthened by the addition of Top 20 hit CASTLE, which will anchor Mondays at 10 p.m. Also coming to CTV Two are encore broadcasts of MuchMusic’s new younger-skewing historical drama REIGN, Thursdays at 9 p.m., as well as THE VAMPIRE DIARIES.

    Vampire Diaries to Sunday? Why not 7pm Thursdays? People will have already had the chance to watch the show Thursday (CW) and Friday (on Much).
    I guessed the Daytime schedule correctly.
    Not sure why they are moving the Tuesday edition of the voice over to CTV Two in favor of those comedies that will surely be cancelled (much like Apt. 23 and Happy Endings were this year). Maybe because The Voice sometimes goes for 2 hours? Not sure. Overall pretty boring schedule, but they had most of the big hits already.

    Also why bother airing the same 2 shows from 7-8 on CTV and CTV Two (Just in reverse order). Such a waste for the channel.

    That was an expected move.
    Last season, they had DWTS, Voice, X-Factor and Idol mainly on CTV1 and dumping the result shows on CTV2.
    This season, they program all those reality shows on CTV2 and the reality airing "at the same time" is dumped on CTV1.

    Since I don't watch any reality show and any of CTV's 10pm shows and their friday night lineup, I rarely watch CTV, CTV2 is not available locally here, so I end up watching City and Global. CTV is becoming watcheable again. Whaaaat ?

    - Interesting that CTV2 has nothing for 10pm except monday simulcast.
    - Daytime CTV2 is a timeshift of CTV1. Most markets in the US have 6 networks with different daytime lineups. CTV2 is like the 4th canadian network. There's surely something different they can program there instead of trying to play checkmate for the simsubs.

    - Eventho it's been renewed for a 2nd season, Motive ain't mentionned in this press release, probably keeping it as a summer series for an ABC simulcast?
    - Also, The Following hasn't been mentionned as a returning mid-season.

    Overview:

    - With today's announcement, pretty much all the new fall shows were picked up by a Canadian network. Interestingly, of all the shows, only The Originals has not been confirmed. My guess is that will wind up on Much, or may have been sub-leased to CHCH, just so that it could be paired with Supernatural on Tuesdays in simulcast.

    - Called it correctly with the scheduling of Played on Thursday nights at 10 (except for Spun Out being reserved for midseason).

    - It was only a matter of time before a Canadian version of Masterchef would come along, so no surprises there.

    - So daytime is pretty much all talk now. Has CTV dropped their rights to The Bold and The Beautiful? Yes, it was the lone soap opera in a sea of talk shows but still, it couldn't even go to CTV Two? And as per previous posts, CTV Two is evolving into a clone (through timeshifting) of the main network, at least during daytime.

    - CTV must have had a hard time keeping up with Hot in Cleveland with the original broadcasts on TV Land, since it kept getting bumped off the schedule, so that and Anger Management now get bumped to CTV Two (especially following that whole 10-90 deal).

    - Other shows missing: Access Hollywood (probably exclusive to E!) and The Colbert Report (probably exclusive to Comedy). Dateline is probably going to CHCH.

    - Like City, only one new show from NBC (Believe). They got only one new show from FOX (Surviving Jack). It looks as though Bell Media were given all the new CW shows in one package.


    - Castle moving to CTV Two is somewhat of a surprise. Also, The Vampire Diaries airing on Sunday - perhaps a second window run for CTV Two, along with Reign (original runs on Much, encores on CTV Two).

    - I'll give them some credit with the primetime strategy planned for both channels. The only question is: Can these be well executed?

    Tally (based on production studios):
    Warner Bros. - total 4 (3 dramas + 1 comedy) - Hostages, The Tomorrow People Believe, Surviving Jack
    ABC Studios - total 4 (2 dramas + 2 comedies) - Trophy Wife, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Intelligence (co-prod with CBS), Mixology
    Sony - total 1 (1 comedy) - The Goldbergs
    CBS Studios - total 1 (1 drama) - Reign (co-prod with Warner)

    Based on today's announcements, very slim pickings with nothing acquired from Universal and 20th Century FOX.

    Castle on CTV2 may be just a parking exercise if Hostages fails. CTV will simply move it over to the main network and add strip programming to CTV2.

    Will Mike and Molly and Hot in Cleveland (both strip) be good lead ins for local news where available on CTV2. I don't think so. They may end up cannibalizing the local news on CTV2 with better CTV lead ins to CTV National News. If they are giving up on 10pm on CTV2 they could always try the news in that time slot or I wonder if they could actually do CTV National News at 10 on CTV2 and local news at 10:30. Insert a Sports filler from TSN til 11:35 and then The Tonight Show.
    A Current Shaw Direct subscriber but I reccomend you look elsewhere. Their new offering is too little too late.

    Looks like CTV has dropped all Soaps. I don't see the Bold and Beautiful on either CTV or CTV2's schedule. Wonder if Rogers or Global have picked them up.

    It would not shock me if they moved it to Bravo.

    That goes for only Dancing with the Stars and The Voice, which both air on Mondays. Given that they are live shows in nature and that CTV has the rights to these shows, it wouldn't be useful to air them anywhere else. Under rare circumstances, CTV aired the Monday episodes of DWTS on Saturdays in post-release, but that was only because of The Following. As much as they could have left The Tuesday episode of The Voice on CTV, my guess is by putting it on CTV Two, that would give them a reality show each night of the week.

    Perhaps CTV is capitalizing more on its returning hit shows to compete with the other networks by getting them in simulcast. Take for instance, Criminal Minds. It has been moved around the last few seasons; one season it was exclusive to CTV Two then this season back to CTV Tuesdays in pre-release. It continues to be one of the top shows in Canada and so by putting it back in simulcast, it can generate even higher ratings.

    They lost Nashville to City, and the rest of the nights were filled with The Mentalist encores. And with the few choices remaining from the new shows, there was not much else for them to schedule, seeing that all the established, proven shows managed to fit all on CTV. I am surprised that Castle was moved on CTV Two, considering how proven of a show it's become they could have at least kept it on the main network, whether in simulcast or pre-release.

    Yes, it's a real shame. I acknowledged this in more detail on one of my posts in this thread.

    The main focus for these upfronts is for what's coming in the fall and only the new shows they acquired for midseason. In the case of Motive and The Following, they will both be back. I don't think CTV would waste their time promoting The Following was the #1 new show for them this season only to lose the rights afterwards. And CTV already confirmed a second season for Motive, so that's nothing major.

    They have a tendency to put aside the returning midseason shows. Last year, there was no mention of Smash in the press release but they did invite one of the stars to the Upfronts. Maybe a star from both The Following and Motive will be an invited guest during their upfont presentations.

    I see The Colbert Report is also missing from CTV & CTV Two, perhaps it is exclusive for Comedy Network?

    Also missing from the schedule : America's Next Top Model.
    Scheduled for friday 9pm on the CW, it could easily air in post-release at 10pm on CTV2 or, like last season, sunday 7pm.

    Low-rated scripted series Nikita get a short 6-episodes run, but no friday timeslot was allocated by the CW. Since ANTM premieres August 2nd, Nikita may pop up in november-december.

    Saturday night, 7pm you get W5, and an instant replay at 9pm on CTV2. Another timeshifting program.
