    I hope providers don't screw up the simulcasting of Criminal Mind: Beyond Borders on Wednesday with 2 different episode playing at 9 on CTV and CBS.

    Good luck with that. I had to double-check the listings on both the CTV website and on my electronic programming guide to see whether CTV was airing the episodes in the same order as CBS. I just confirmed the same thing on Zap2it. Earlier in the week, it looked as though CTV would air the episodes out of order, starting with the Wednesday 10:00pm episode in pre-release on Tuesday just so they could air the 9:00pm episode in simulcast on Wednesday. Besides, it's not like CTV was going to air the season finale of Designated Survivor out of simulcast.

    On Tuesday May 23, NBC has "Great News" at 8pm and The Voice at 9pm. The next day, NBC has a L&O:SVU filler at 8pm, and the last two new episodes of SVU at 9pm and 10pm.

    For some odd reason, CTV programmed the 9pm SVU in pre-release tues 8pm while CTV2 has The Flash season finale, followed by a Castle filler. Then on wednesday, CTV has ABC's Dirty Dancing TV movie, so CTV2 airs Arrow finale at 8pm, the L&O season finale at 9pm, and their usual Molly & Anger fillers at 10pm. Yup, another "same series, not the same episode" situation.

    I would make more sense to air The Flash finale in simulcast on CTV, and the next day on CTV2, Arrow finale + L&O:SVU 9pm and 10pm, all in simulcast...

    Advenced TV Listings for tuesday May 30th. NBC's World of Dance premieres at 10pm after America's Got Talent, which is what helps Citytv reach the top Numéris ratings. So, guess how CTV will in those two hours ? Could it be a cute feel-good summer movie ? Could it be one of those hot CraveTV exclusive ? Nope...

    Yup, you don't need to be smart to guess it, it was the obvious dumb "by default" prefered-choice of CTV's top-rated show : 2 FULL 2 HOURS OF THE BIG BANG THEORY... actually, make it 2 ½ if you count the 7:30pm syndicated strip...

    This is ridiculous !

    Indeed, it is ridiculous and I totally agree with your sentiment.

    Having said that, the only logical reason I can think of (and I've probably mentioned this before) is that CTV is doing this as a means of playing catchup with all the episodes of The Big Bang Theory that were originally scheduled to air as part of their weeknight syndicated strip but were pre-empted...as crazy and strange as this sounds.

    Keep in mind that over the past few months, CTV used the 7:00pm block across several days of the week for pre-release broadcasts of new episodes for their network primetime shows (Gotham on Monday, Grey's Anatomy on Thursday and Lucifer on Sunday). At the same time, for as long as CTV has had the off-network syndicated rights for The Big Bang Theory, courtesy of their output deal with the show's production studio (Warner Bros.) they have to find some way to fulfill their obligations as a result of those rights by getting all those episodes to air...again, as crazy and strange as this sounds. Could they have found another way to do this instead of just running 2 1/2 hour marathons on a given night? One would think most definitely.

    I just noticed that CTV Atlantic will be airing live news coverage for the Nova Scotia provincial elections on Tuesday, May 30 from 8:00pm to 10:00pm.

    Through late May and early June, there's a number of filler timeslots available before the new and returning summer shows begin to flood the schedule once again. For instance, if you look at Tuesday nights, The Amazing Race Canada does not return until July 4 at 8:00pm and Hollywood Game Night only returns on June 20 at 9:00pm. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (where yes, there will be more Big Bang episodes in simulcast with CBS) are more or less full.

    Aside from the original summer lineup that was released a few weeks ago, it looks like The Goldbergs will be returning to CTV Sunday at 7:30pm starting May 28 where they can finish airing the remaining four episodes from this season. As for what will air at 7:00pm...I think we already all know the answer to that question.
