    US Specialty Series Directory

    With the recent discussion about a possible launch of TNT Canada (which I don't see happening), I decided to create a directory for various US specialty channels, the series they air and who has the rights to them in Canada.

    Netflix Canada might still have the first three seasons (or at least some seasons) of Major Crimes. Season 4 might soon arrive (unless it's already there), followed by the current season 5 ... perhaps sooner if Netflix wants to flex its muscles for the Canadian rights.

    People of Earth (TBS) has been picked up by Comedy here in Canada.

    I haven't read or heard anything about the next season of Suits being its final one. Season 6 premieres on Wednesday, July 13.

    Kingdom (Audience Network) has aired on Bravo throughout its run. Much appears to be running an encore of the first season.

    Thanks for the info.

    Sorry that is a mistake, thanks for pointing it out. Royal Pains is the one that is ending and is in its final season.

    Here are some other updates to take note of:

    Audience Network
    Rogue airs on The Movie Network (final season)

    Bravo
    Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce moved from Slice to W Network

    Freeform
    Dead of Summer and Guilt have both been cancelled

    Syfy
    Hunters has been cancelled

    TNT
    Murder in the First has been cancelled

    TV Land
    Younger moved from E! to Bravo

    CMT has Nashville which airs on W Network in Canada (same-week encores on CMT in Canada)

    Comedy Central's scripted programming for the most part has been airing on Much (with second window runs on Comedy).

    Amazon original series Bosch also premieres on CraveTV, which is home to most Showtime original programming day and date with the U.S. The only exception is Homeland - the latest season is airing on Superchannel. Bravo appears to have dropped second window runs to the show, which will be picked up by CraveTV.

    Thanks for the updates!

    Homeland appears to have been moved to TMN, they are currently airing season 5.
    (http://www.themovienetwork.ca/homeland)

    I thought Comedy Central programming airs on the Comedy Network and repeats on other channels?! Comedy Network signed an deal a while back for exclusive rights to all Comedy Central programming including shows from their library.

    TMN has the rights to past seasons only. Current season is still on SuperChannel

    Season 5 of Homeland originally aired on Showtime in Fall 2015, so while the encore rights remain with Bell Media, they switched from Bravo to The Movie Network. Superchannel retains the first-run Canadian rights and they are currently airing Season 6, same day and date with Showtime in the U.S. Based on the link below, all Showtime originals are slated to premiere on CraveTV while TMN holds the Canadian linear rights. Homeland appears to be the one exception. This is much like how Showcase has been running TNT drama Rizzoli & Isles (first rights formerly were held by Superchannel).

    You are partly right, though the deal for exclusive rights to Comedy Central programming is not limited to just Comedy Network but with Bell Media's specialty channels, particularly Much.

    You may have noticed for a while now how Much has first-run Canadian exclusive rights to new episodes of several shows including South Park, Drunk History, Workaholics, Tosh.0, Another Period and Broad City just to name a few. They will also be premiering a new show called Detroiters at the same time as Comedy Central this week.

    Some shows have been flipped between Comedy Network and Much - the most recent example being @midnight which moved back to Comedy Network after the holidays, since it moved timeslots to follow The Daily Show with Trevor Noah sometime last year.

    Comedy Network continues to have first run exclusive rights to some of Comedy Central's live action programming, although on a smaller scale. Like Much, they have a Comedy Central block latenights and weekends. Compared to previous years, their lineup has changed with weeknight reruns of Big Bang Theory along with acquired shows from TBS and TVLand. Previously, they aired reruns of The Simpsons weeknights but those have since moved over to Much. At some point, Comedy ends up airing many of the shows that originally premiered on Much.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List...Comedy_Central

    One additional note: Conan premieres on Much, airing at the same time as TBS. It airs later overnight on CTV (following The Late Late Show with James Corden).

    The previous seasons are what I was referring to. New episodes air on Super Channel but Bravo was airing the older seasons, which now appear to have been moved to TMN.

    Great move by Super Channel to snatch this show up, I read somewhere that this show has a different production company and they are in charge of distribution rights which is why Super Channel was able to acquire the rights instead of the show going to TMN which has exclusive rights to Showtime programming.

    One additional note: Conan premieres on Much, airing at the same time as TBS. It airs later overnight on CTV (following The Late Late Show with James Corden).
    Interesting, I thought it premieres on CTV and repeats on Much?! I will update this then so its accurate.

    This is much like how Showcase has been running TNT drama Rizzoli & Isles (first rights formerly were held by Superchannel).
    Showcase is currently airing season 6 and is almost to the end of the season. I think they will also air season 7 (final season) as well albeit several months after it finished airing in the USA.

    Bravo in Canada has picked up two additional series:

    Hulu
    Chance - original drama starring Hugh Laurie (House)
    First of two seasons premiered October 2016 in the U.S.

    E!
    The Arrangement - Second scripted original series after The Royals
    Originally part of E! Canada's lineup, it will premiere March 8 on Bravo following the U.S. series premiere on March 5
    First season will have 10 episodes

    Bravo will also be premiering Famous in Love (Freeform) in April at the same time when Pretty Little Liars returns for its final season.

    Figured you could also include Starz in the US Specialty Series Directory - almost all their current scripted shows in Canada are aired on Superchannel, except for Outlander which airs on Showcase.

    Current scripted shows on Starz include comedies Ash vs Evil Dead and Survivor's Remorse, and the drama series Black Sails, Power, The Missing and The Girlfriend Experience.

    Thanks for the updates.

    I have added in Starz, was debating adding it since I thought all shows were available on Super Channel. I wasn't aware that Showcase airs Outlander.

    You're welcome. By the way, under E! you listed E! Canada as the channel for The Arrangement, but as I mentioned a few posts earlier, it is moving to Bravo.

    To my knowledge, I do not think the USA Network series Eyewitness has aired yet on Showcase.

    It was announced on a blog post they did they had picked it up. When it was airing in the US I asked them on their facebook page and they said they would not air it after all.
