    TORONTO (December 22, 2016) – The new year hits all the right notes as CTV announced today premiere dates for the network’s 2017 winter schedule, headlined by fan favourite THE VOICE. Coming off a third Emmy® Award for Best Reality Competition Series, and with Gwen Stefani returning as coach – alongside returning coaches Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton – the co-viewing, four-quadrant blockbuster vocal competition series moves back to CTV, anchoring the network’s Monday and Tuesday night lineups (Feb. 27/28). Also bolstering CTV’s 2017 winter schedule is the series premiere of the gritty, emotional, darkly humorous, and terrifically intense TRAINING DAY (Feb. 2) and the previously announced, highly-anticipated, new six-part CTV Original Event Series CARDINAL (Jan. 25).


    “On the heels of its third Emmy® win, and with momentum building, THE VOICE is poised to star on CTV’s 2017 winter schedule,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, CTV and Specialty. “In addition to the much-anticipated debuts of the buzzed-about TRAINING DAY and CTV’s new original can’t miss event-series CARDINAL, plus the return of fan-favourite hits and TV’s most-watched big ticket live events such as THE OSCARS and SUPER BOWL LI, CTV and CTV Two are primed for an extraordinary start to the new year.”


    Kicking off the new year, perennial Friday night favourite GRIMM begins its sixth and final season (Jan. 6) and game show revival MATCH GAME, hosted by Alec Baldwin (SNL), returns for its second season (Jan. 4). The legal drama CONVICTION moves to CTV’s Sunday night lineup (Jan. 1), while can’t miss thriller QUANTICO move to Mondays (Jan. 23). Hit series HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER (Jan. 19) and THE FLASH (Jan. 24) continue in their regular timeslots with all-new episodes.


    On CTV Two, SLEEPY HOLLOW (Jan. 6), MASTERCHEF JUNIOR (Feb. 9), and the final season of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES (Jan. 13) all return. DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW gets a new home on CTV Two, continuing with new episodes (Jan. 24).


    CTV officially kicks off awards season in January with THE 74th ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS (Jan. 8), hosted by Jimmy Fallon and airing live from the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. Then on Feb. 26, Jimmy Kimmel takes the stage to honour the best in film as host of THE 89TH OSCARS®. Big ticket live event programming ensues, as CTV is home to SUPER BOWL LI (Feb. 5), featuring a halftime show headlined by pop superstar Lady Gaga.

    Adapted from author Giles Blunt’s award-winning John Cardinal Mysteries series, CARDINAL is a six-episode dramatic thriller that follows Detective John Cardinal (Billy Campbell, THE KILLING) on a chilling hunt for a brutal killer in a small Northern Ontario town. Demoted for a hunch about a case that he wouldn’t let go, Cardinal is brought back to the Homicide Unit when the body of missing 13-year-old Katie Pine is discovered, proving his instincts correct. Back on the case, his search for her murderer soon becomes an all-consuming race to stay ahead of a serial killer. Meanwhile, Cardinal must manage his own precarious family issues and secrets, and keep a watchful eye on his new partner, Detective Lise Delorme (Karine Vanasse, REVENGE), who he believes may have her own secret agenda.


    TRAINING DAY – Thursdays at 10 p.m. beginning Feb. 2 on CTV
    Gritty, emotional, darkly humorous and terrifically intense, TRAINING DAY is a reimagining of the ground-breaking film of the same name, beginning 15 years later, and exploring modern-day Los Angeles in all its guts and glory. The LAPD’s Kyle Craig (Justin Cornwell, EMPIRE) is one of the good guys. A rookie cop bumped up to detective in the elite and elusive Special Investigation Section (S.I.S.), a unit that goes after the worst of the worst, he’s been tasked by Deputy Chief Lockhart (Marianne Jean-Baptiste, BLINDSPOT) to expose the corruption of veteran cop Frank Rourke (Bill Paxton, BIG LOVE), a charming but crooked detective – and the head of S.I.S. The morally ambiguous Frank lives by the law of the jungle and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to bring down the bad guys, and to continue the chase where the law won’t. When Kyle learns that Frank was his father’s partner and may be able to help him solve his father’s murder, he keeps his judgment at bay. Having Kyle, a politically correct poster boy for the new police order, as his trainee could be beneficial for Frank as they maneuver the streets and track the city’s most dangerous offenders. As the bullets fly in the undercover world of S.I.S. with these partners who don’t trust each other, the question becomes who’s training who? TRAINING DAY also stars Lex Scott Davis (TONI BRAXTON: UNBREAK MY HEART) as Alyse Arredondo, Katrina Law (ARROW) as Rebecca Lee, Drew Van Acker (PRETTY LITTLE LIARS) as Tommy Campbell, and Julie Benz (DEXTER) as Holly Butler. TRAINING DAY is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Fuqua Films in association with Warner Bros. Television.

    Looks like CTV picked up Powerless and will have it in simulcast with NBC Thursday at 8:30pm from February 2nd. I would think The Goldberg will probably move to CTV two with American Housewife?

    Bell has a press release yesterday : http://www.bellmedia.ca/pr/press/new...ng-february-2/

    As for The Goldbergs, it'll most likely be shelved like previous seasons. With CTV2 simsubbing CW's Arrow, Goldbergs can't be scheduled there, and CTV2 normally won't used for pre-releases, like tuesdays 8pm before American Housewife in simsub, which would be better than another goddamn TBBT rerun as lead...

    Blindspot is on hiatus for two weeks until February 8 and NBC will be showing reruns of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in its timeslot. The next new episode of The Goldbergs is scheduled for Wednesday, February 8. Perhaps at the last minute, CTV should use this occasion to air The Goldbergs in simulcast with ABC on Wednesday, February 1 with new sitcom Powerless taking over the post-Big Bang timeslot on Thursdays. And going forward, they would move The Goldbergs to a pre-release airing at 7:30pm leading in to new episodes of Blindspot. But knowing CTV and the way they program their two channels, who knows... I think there's at least two episodes of American Housewife still sitting on the shelf and that have yet to air.

    January 26, 2017

    TORONTO (January 26, 2017) – Bolstering a previously announced Winter 2017 schedule, CTV revealed today its full midseason lineup, featuring more star power, new comedies and dramas, hit returning favourites, and live, big ticket special events.

    In the newest addition to CTV’s midseason schedule, TRIAL & ERROR, true crime and mockumentary collide in John Lithgow’s (3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN, DEXTER) return to primetime television (March 7). The series goes into the heart of a quirky, small Southern town to follow the arrest and murder trial of a beloved poetry professor (Lithgow) and a young “Northeastern” lawyer (Nicholas D’Agosto, GOTHAM) hired to defend him.

    Paired with the co-viewing, four-quadrant blockbuster vocal competition series THE VOICE, the fish-out-of-water comedy joins CTV’s Tuesday night lineup alongside MARVEL’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Also joining CTV’s 2017 midseason schedule is the series premiere of Kevin Williamson’s (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) fantastical cat and mouse adventure series TIME AFTER TIME (March 5).

    “The addition of buzzed about new comedy TRIAL & ERROR out of THE VOICE is primed to strengthen an already solid Tuesday night lineup,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, CTV and Specialty. “With enormous star power in both new and established series, the return of fan favourites MASTERCHEF CANADA on Thursdays and the highly anticipated final season debut of SAVING HOPE on Sundays, CTV is primed for appointment viewing all season long.”

    CTV’s hit culinary series MASTERCHEF CANADA serves up an all-new fourth season Thursday nights with another helping of food-driven drama (March 2). The all-new powerhouse Thursday night lineup also features previously announced new series POWERLESS (Feb. 2) and TRAINING DAY (Feb. 2), and perennial blockbuster THE BIG BANG THEORY.

    The much-anticipated fifth and final season of CTV’s hit original drama SAVING HOPE (March 12) joins TIME AFTER TIME (March 5), as both series anchor the network’s Sunday night lineup.

    On Tuesday, March 7, the season finale of this season’s breakout hit THIS IS US airs at a special time, 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV. Tuesdays also sees the pairing of hit series THE FLASH with DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW on CTV Two, in a new two-hour superhero block (Feb. 28).

    Following CARDINAL’s six-part event run (Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV), March also sees the return of the fall’s most-watched new series DESIGNATED SURVIVOR* starring Kiefer Sutherland (March 8). Meanwhile, the sophomore season of THE CATCH settles into its new home on CTV Two (March 9).

    Plus, Phil Keoghan and a new batch of racers return as the long-awaited all-new 29th season of multi-EMMY Award-winning THE AMAZING RACE returns with a two-hour premiere on CTV (April 21).

    CTV is also home to big ticket live events and star wattage specials this winter with SUPER BOWL LI (Feb. 5), THE 89th ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS® (Feb. 26), and THE 2017 JUNO AWARDS (April 2), while the IHEARTRADIO MUSIC AWARDS airs on CTV Two March 5.

His mission? To defend an eccentric “rollercizing” poetry professor (John Lithgow, DEXTER) accused of the bizarre murder of his beloved wife. Settling into his makeshift office behind a taxidermy shop and meeting his quirky team of local misfits, Josh suspects that winning his first big case will not be easy, especially when his client is always making himself look guilty. The cast also includes Jayma Mays (GLEE), Sherri Shepherd (THE VIEW), Steven Boyer (ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK), and Krysta Rodriguez (SMASH). Jeff Astrof (FRIENDS) and Matt Miller (FOREVER) serve as writers and executive producers. Jeffrey Blitz (THE OFFICE) directs and also serves as an executive producer. TRIAL & ERROR is produced by Barge Productions and Good Session Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

    Based on the novel and movie TIME AFTER TIME, executive producer/writer Kevin Williamson (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, Scream franchise, DAWSON’S CREEK) delivers a fantastical cat-and-mouse adventure through time when famed science fiction writer H.G. Wells is transported to modern day Manhattan in pursuit of Jack the Ripper. Once H.G. arrives in New York City, he finds a world he never thought possible and a young woman who captivates him. TIME AFTER TIME stars Freddie Stroma (UNREAL) as H.G. Wells, Josh Bowman (REVENGE) as John Stevenson, aka Jack the Ripper, Genesis Rodriguez (Big Hero 6) as Jane Walker, and Regina Taylor (DIG) as Vanessa Anders. Executive producer Kevin Williamson (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES), wrote the pilot, and executive producer Marcos Siega (BLINDSPOT, THE FOLLOWING) served as its director.

    Hold on a sec, I thought Gotham already went on its winter break last November? With all these lengthy hiatuses they're going on, shouldn't Fox be worried about losing viewers for the show because of that?

    I don't think FOX is too worried about Gotham and Lucifer's ratings at this point. Other than their dominance on Wednesday nights with Empire, they have been one of the few bright spots on the network's schedule - very consistent pairing despite the massive competition on Monday nights.

    Both shows will return to Mondays in the middle of the spring - Gotham on April 24 and Lucifer on May 1. FOX is making room in the meantime for a reboot of 24 and midseason replacement APB. Obviously, the network will observe closely to see how these shows will do, and that will determine their fate.

    Should they fare better in the ratings than the current timeslot performers, where does that leave Gotham and Lucifer? Unless FOX plans on bringing back 24 in regular installments and APB does take off (which frankly I don't think will be the case but I'll give it a sample), then I think Gotham and Lucifer are safe and will stay in their same timeslots for next fall.

    I agree that they could have been given better scheduling - FOX had planned for Gotham to take a midseason break from the beginning but a return for only three weeks seems rather unusual. In the case of Lucifer, it was not originally planned to run for 22 episodes, but FOX decided to pick it up for a full season afterwards. By the time both shows return from hiatus, FOX will be in the process of planning its schedule for next season, and I think it's safe to assume that regardless of their ratings, both shows will be renewed. The remainder of their seasons will extend into the summer, so it will be interesting to see what the ratings will be like.

    From the advanced listings I have seen on CTV's website, Screener (formerly Zap2it) and the TV Guide app, The Goldbergs will air in post-release on Sunday, February 12 at 7:30pm so presumably that will be their new timeslot for the remainder of the season. Barring any further changes or revisions, both CTV and CTV Two oddly have a rerun of The Big Bang Theory (presumably the same episode) scheduled to air at 7:00pm that same evening.

    Thursday Feb 23, ABC programmed the 2-hours finale of HTGAWM, it's ok because CTV already programs it in pre-release at 9pm, but also simulcasts CBS' Training Day at 10pm. At the moment of writing this, Zap2It TV Listings ain't sure what to do... CTV already have Grey's Anatomy in pre-release at 7pm, so Training Day in pre-release ain't an option.

    Ratings-wise, Training Day data ain't publicly available yet with only 2 airings, but if it's not drawing huge ratings, it would make sense from a Bell's Toronto headquarters point-of-view to shift it to CTV Two for that week (bad idea from a Montreal point-of-view) and I doubt CTV would sacrifice the next day's Blue Bloods rerun simsub for a post-release of TD.

    Through the first two airings, ratings for Training Day (in the U.S. at least) are pretty dismal. I would not be the least bit surprised if Training Day gets moved to CTV Two for the Thursday, February 23 episode. And if ratings continue trending downward by that point, CTV may choose to leave Training Day on CTV Two while swapping it with The Catch upon its return on March 9.

    In the following days, you have the Oscars, the return of The Voice on CTV and ABC's schedule for the week of February 27 will have most regular programming pre-empted by the mini-series When We Rise which will be airing over four nights (Monday, Wednesday to Friday) and Trump's speech on the Tuesday that week.

    As far as it goes for CTV that week, you would have:
    Monday (Feb 27) - The Voice season premiere (Quantico is pre-empted so perhaps they could air Training Day in post-release here)

    Tuesday (Feb 28) - One hour of The Voice (This Is Us and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are both pre-empted). If CTV is smart enough, they can make room for the previous week's episode of The Goldbergs (pre-empted from Sunday February 26 due to the pre-Oscars special) and/or shelved episodes of American Housewife alongside their Big Bang Theory reruns (more on that in a bit).

    Wednesday (March 1) - Regular lineup of Blindspot, Criminal Minds and the finale of Canadian drama series Cardinal.

    Thursday (March 2) - Big Bang Theory, Powerless, season premiere of MasterChef Canada, Training Day (Grey's Anatomy is pre-empted on this occasion for an ABC News special based on the mini-series).

    As for The Big Bang Theory reruns, as annoying and lazy as it is for CTV to just use it as time filler in place of regular programming, it appears to compensate for the times that their nightly reruns get pre-empted (for instance by Grey's Anatomy on Thursday nights). Looking at this week's schedule, they have an hour of Big Bang reruns on Monday. The episodes currently airing weeknights are from Season 9 (last season) for the first time in this manner - one of the reruns scheduled for this Monday would have not been scheduled until the Thursday of the next week. That's probably just one factor in their decision, but like it has been mentioned in the past, just like TBS in the U.S., a Big Bang rerun ends up drawing better ratings than some new episodes of regular, original programming.

    Ironically, Trump's scheduled speech on Tuesday, February 28 removed one headache for CTV. With a new episode of This Is Us pre-empted for that week, therefore pushing the season finale of This Is Us and the series premiere of Trial & Error back by one week (from March 7 to 14), CTV originally would have had scheduling conflicts with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on March 7 with This Is Us scheduled to air at 10:00pm on NBC that night. In that case, CTV would have had to decide between airing either a new episode S.H.I.E.L.D. or the season finale of This Is Us in pre-release at 7:00pm for that time only.

    Trial & Error was not pushed a week, they are airing it at 10-11pm on March 14th instead of 9-10pm. So CTV will have that problem on March 14th between Trial & Error and Shield.

    Before Trump's speech caused some changes to the broadcast network schedules, this was the original plan:

    Tuesday February 28
    NBC and CTV: 2 hour episode of The Voice, new episode of This is Us (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was already pre-empted on ABC for that evening).

    Tuesday, March 7
    NBC and CTV: 90 minute episode of The Voice, series premiere of Trial & Error, season finale of This is Us (refer to the recent press release about CTV's midseason schedule in this thread)
    In the original scenario, CTV would have had scheduling conflicts with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    Fast forward to the newly updated schedule:

    Tuesday, March 7
    NBC: One hour of The Voice, new episode of This is Us, special new episode of Chicago Justice
    CTV: One hour of The Voice, new episode of This is Us, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    Tuesday, March 14
    NBC and CTV: One hour of The Voice, season finale of This is Us, series premiere of Trial & Error (back-to-back episodes)
    Hence, potential scheduling conflict with S.H.I.E.L.D.

    But wait...there is an opening on Monday, March 13 at 10:00pm as ABC will be pre-empting Quantico for The Bachelor post-finale special After the Final Rose, so CTV has options there, either with Trial & Error or S.H.I.E.L.D. to air in pre-release one night earlier. Highly unlikely that CTV wil air the finale of This is Us outside of simulcast.

    UPDATE: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is taking a temporary hiatus from the schedule after next week (February 21). It was already scheduled for pre-emption on February 28, but will be off the air for the entire month of March as ABC has planned to air a new limited series called People Icons in its timeslot.

    (http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news/2...20170214abc07/)

    Hence, CTV dodges a bullet - no scheduling conflict with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. at least for the month of March. We'll see what happens when it returns for what could potentially be its final run in April and May.

    As per most of the advanced listings (including CTV's website), CTV will be airing the two-hour season finale of How to Get Away with Murder in simulcast with ABC on Thursday, February 23 at 9:00pm.
    That will bump the new episode of Training Day scheduled that week to Monday, February 27 at 10:00pm.

    Meanwhile, NBC has scheduled a special one-hour episode of The Voice on Thursday, March 2 at 8:00pm, pre-empting Powerless for that evening only. Grey's Anatomy is also pre-empted and Big Bang Theory will be a rerun. What will CTV do here?

    It's a no-brainer : CTV will simsub TBBT's thu 8pm rerun. Then put another TBBT rerun at 8:30pm to fill the schedule hole ?

    Oh, was that a rhetoric question ? :p

    It was not meant to be a rhetorical question at first, but since you beat me to it, I guess it is now.

    That being said, I would not be the least bit surprised if that's what CTV does, knowing their scheduling habits. :P lol.

    We'll find out with the advanced listings in the upcoming days.

    Sp Doubt being cancelled on CBS, they are bringing back Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders on March 8th at 10pm. We'll see where it will go, not sure how well it did last year compare to Designated Survivor, btu I know they paid a lot of DS, so they might want to keep it on CTV simply for that.

    With all the promotion, I cannot see CTV moving Designated Survivor from its timeslot so it's possible that Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders could end up on CTV Two.

    At the same time, CTV should have no trouble finding room for Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders throughout the month of March, thanks to the frequent pre-emptions for some of their regularly scheduled shows.

    Quantico is on hiatus for three weeks until Monday, March 20.
    Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on hiatus for the entire month until Tuesday, April 4.
    Training Day (also in danger of being pulled from the schedule due to poor ratings) will take a two-week break on Thursday March 16 and 23 as CBS will have the NCAA March Madness Tournament.

    So that opens up Monday and Tuesday 10:00pm as available timeslots in pre-release and Thursday 10:00pm in post-release.

    CTV also has the premiere of NBC sitcom Trial & Error on Tuesday, March 14 at 10:00pm before moving to its regular 9:00pm timeslot with back-to-back episodes on March 21, after This Is Us has finished its run for the season.
    Over on CTV Two, DC's Legends of Tomorrow concludes on Tuesday, April 4 so depending on how Trial & Error does, it could get shifted over to CTV Two to make room for the Beyond Borders spinoff to air on CTV Tuesday at 9:00pm in April.

    There's also a couple of weeks in April where the Friday 8:00pm timeslot is available, bridging the series finale of Grimm (March 31) and the season premiere of The Amazing Race (April 21). CTV Two's lineup on Fridays will also have slots available following the series finale of The Vampire Diaries (March 10) and the finale of Sleepy Hollow (March 31).
