    CTV2 is a shadow of schedule any more. Between movies and strip programming there is not much there. CTV could fit most of the overflow programming at 7pm on the main network or on Saturday afternoon's if they wanted. When is BellMedia's time limit on the promise to keep these stations open up?
    I'm back

    While I would agree to that, the problem that CTV faces is that by using all their 7:00pm slot weeknights and Saturday afternoons, they would be cutting into the required amount of their weekly Canadian content. At this point, I don't think requesting to the CRTC a further reduction would be ideal as they would likely be turned down.

    Their decision to air Gotham Monday at 7:00pm is an interesting one given that some of the show's content is not suitable for that hour, but it is a short-term initiative for one month only. This is the result of them wanting to keep The Voice on CTV (both Monday and Tuesday) for the remainder of the season.

    Based on the current schedule, that leaves The Flash, Arrow, Law & Order: SVU, MasterChef Junior, Reign, The Catch and American Housewife to run original episodes on CTV Two.

    Then there's NFL season to deal with, where Sunday afternoons are pretty much filled. Between February and August, they have room available but again there's a certain amount of CanCon that they need to run to meet their annual requirements.

    If it were up to me, I would establish a digital subchannel for a CTV Two network across all markets. Bell committed to keep the CTV Two stations running through this year - their licence expires on August 31. It will be interesting to see if and/or how they will figure into their plans for the 2017/18 season. We'll find out during their upfronts on June 7.

    After its thu Apr 27 airing, CBS sent packing sitcom Great Indoors to mondays, filling the 8:30pm slot with... TBBT reruns. Advanced TV Listings has CTV's May 4th 8:30pm slot used with a simulcast of NBC's Powerless, which was lost in the Numeris ratings since the march break.

    I assume, if CTV Two wasn't busy simulcasting Fox's MasterChef at 8pm, Bell would have already dump Powerless to CTV2 in a heartbeat in order to simsub that TBBT rerun.
