    [PR] City Announces 2015 Mid-Season Schedule

    City Announces 2015 Mid-Season Schedule

    – Homegrown Canadian series Sunnyside and Young Drunk Punk headline mid-season schedule –
    – Exclusive Canadian red carpet coverage on Entertainment City: Live at the GRAMMYs, followed by The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards® –
    – Beloved series Glee, Parks and Recreation, and Cougar Town come to an emotional end in their final seasons –
    – Feel the heat with an all-new spicy season of Hell’s Kitchen –

    TORONTO (December 11, 2014) Viewers can enjoy the gift that keeps on giving long after the holidays are over, with a roster of eagerly awaited new and returning smash-hit series coming to City’s mid-season lineup. Two new original Canadian series and brand-new seasons of four returning favourites heat up the small screen all winter long, beginning January 8 on City.

    Furthering City’s commitment to delivering world-class Canadian programming, two all-new original series headline the network’s 2015 mid-season lineup of must-see TV. Premiering January 8, Sunnyside, starring a talented ensemble cast featuring the hilarious Kathleen Phillips (Dan for Mayor, Mr. D) and Pat Thornton (Satisfaction, The Jon Dore Show), brings a bold, fresh new flavour of sketch comedy to prime time. From hipsters and young professionals to yoga moms and romantic crooks, Sunnyside is a quirky neighbourhood in transition, where residents aren’t always what they seem and surprises lurk around every slightly dingy corner. Additionally, acclaimed Canadian comedian Norm MacDonald (Saturday Night Live) joins the cast as the voice of “The Hole” – an open manhole that replaces the Internet in Sunnyside, where residents line up to ask questions.

    The truly original and hilarious coming-of-age journey Young Drunk Punk, premiering January 21 and starring creator, writer, and executive producer Bruce McCulloch (Kids in the Hall), is a scripted-comedy series inspired by McCulloch’s life and told through his unique point-of-view. The series follows Ian (Tim Carlson, Gracepoint) and Shinky (Atticus Mitchell, Fargo) as they embark on a hilarious and rebellious search to find out who they are, somewhere in the lost years between high school and “what’s next.”

    Rounding out the lineup is fiery reality competition series Hell’s Kitchen (March 3), and the final seasons of smash-hit series Glee (January 9), quirky comedy Parks and Recreation (January 13), and wine-soaked comedy Cougar Town (February 19).

    Plus, City amps up the star power as the exclusive Canadian broadcaster of The 57TH Annual GRAMMY® Awards, airing live on February 8. Leading up to Music’s Biggest Night®, viewers get a front-row seat to exclusive Canadian coverage of the celebrity arrivals as part of the Entertainment City: Live at the GRAMMYs red carpet special. Details to be announced in the coming weeks.

    Also returning to the mid-season schedule are new episodes of fan-favourites 2 Broke Girls, Black-ish, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Mike & Molly, The Middle, The Mindy Project, Modern Family, Mom, New Girl, Revenge, Scandal, and Scorpion. Plus, high-octane sports programming continues every Saturday and Sunday night with Hockey Night in Canada and Rogers Hometown Hockey.

    Full episodes and exciting extras are available on Citytv.com next day post-broadcast, as well as on Rogers on Demand, Rogers Anyplace TV, and with the free City Video App for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, and on the City Video Mobile App for Android.

    Noteworthy

    - NBC Programmed the 7th (last) season of Parks & Recreation on tuesdays with back-to-back episodes, Jan 13 to Feb 24th. These will be in simulcast.
    - Back in June 2014, City announced Fox's "Backstrom" as mid-season show they picked up. It premieres thursday Jan 22nd at 9pm on Fox, and is absent from this press release. It obviously conflicts with ABC's Scandal which comes back Jan 29th, but they can at least air the pilot in simulcast.
    - Brooklyn 9-9 will be shelved and dumped with back-to-back episodes starting this spring, as long as there's no sunday night playoff game on City...
    We had a good run: 2006 to 2020. Thanks for the informations and debates.

    THIS JUST IN...

    ... from CBS Entertainment

    FRESHMAN DRAMA "SCORPION" SCORES POST-AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME SLOT

    CBS's hit drama SCORPION will be scheduled immediately following one of television's biggest events, the NFL's AFC Championship game, on Sunday, Jan. 18 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).

    In the new episode "Forget Me Nots," Team Scorpion must jog the memory of an injured former Secret Service agent who is their only hope of preventing weapons of mass destruction being launched from a secret U.S. nuclear silo. David James Elliott ("JAG") guest stars as the ex-Secret Service agent.

    The following day, on Monday, Jan. 19, CBS will broadcast another original episode of SCORPION in its regular time period (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). In this episode, "Charades," the team is tasked with uncovering a mole inside the CIA who is coerced into stealing deadly chemicals.

    ==========

    Citytv has hockey until 10pm, followed by Revenge, with a new episode of Scorpion that will probably be delayed post-football.

    What to choose ? Scorpion made the weekly Numeris Top 30 ratings, so it should be priority but won't start on time, while Revenge is on a stable start time so 11pm news for Toronto can start on time, but Revenge has already been dumped to Omni due to late hockey games, so they won't hesitate to make the move again.
    We had a good run: 2006 to 2020. Thanks for the informations and debates.

    Empire comes to City in a Special Television Event, January 28

    – Viewers can catch up on the first three episodes of the must-see drama Empire exclusively on Citytv.com, leading up to next week’s all-new episode on City –

    “Empire keeps it real by addressing themes involving race and class but its soapy characteristics, stellar performances, engaging writing and sublime direction that will captivate viewers” – Denette Wilford, Huffington Post Canada

    From co-creators and executive producers Lee Daniels (The Butler, Precious) and Danny Strong (The Butler) comes Empire, the series critics are calling a “bonifide, big honking hit,” that chronicles the family saga of music legend Lucious Lyon (Oscar® nominee Terrence Howard, The Butler), the head of a music empire who is not only battling a debilitating disease, but also his three sons and ex-wife...who are all vying for his throne.

    Following its hotly anticipated series debut on January 7, this season’s most popular and electrifying new drama comes to City next Wednesday, Jan. 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), with Episode 4, “False Imposition” in a special television event. The episode will also air in simulcast on OMNI Television.

    Source: http://www.rogersmediatv.ca/pr_detail.php?id=1156

    ===========

    Note : Modern Family & Black-ish are reruns this week.
    The next wednesday, ABC programmed Fresh off the Boat premiere at 8:30pm and the 2nd episode at 9:30pm. The schedule on City's website for Montreal (but not Toronto) lists FotB at 9:30pm, so does Zap2It TV Listings...
