    As expected, Global has nothing to simsub except CBS's SWAT at 10pm, so they scheduled Xmas movies 8pm to 10pm.
    Could have expected that schedule hole since last may, and opted for a cancon rerun or a Showcase/W Network show...

    Over Citytv, well, CBS's Mom and Life in Pieces air at the same time as Fox's Orville. The sitcoms are scheduled in pre-release at 8pm.

    Chicago Med is coming back on NBC tuesdays 10pm starting Nov 21, taking over the slot left by 8-eps series L&O:TC.

    So instead of airing Med either in simulcast or in pre-release at 7pm, Global came up with this :
    - Chicago Med in pre-release mondays 9pm
    - Those two CBS sitcoms in simsub mondays at 9pm (Donuts and 9JKL) are now in post-release thursdays at 8pm. Reruns of W&G and Superstore will fill the schedule hole at 9pm before the SWAT simsub with CBS.
    - Thursday night Xmas movies are banished to saturday nights, taking over Hallmark's "Flower Shop Mystery" movie series.

    Chicago Med's last episode for December is on the 12th for NBC (11th for Global).

    Over CBS, their monday night lineup is all-new on monday Dec 18th.
    You'd expect Global to put Donuts and 9JKL back in simsub this time, right ? Naaaah ! With a schedule hole at 10pm, they decided to put on a 2-hours Xmas movie starting at 9pm.

    I just noticed this, NBC scheduled 2 new episodes of Great News tomorrow Dec 21 at 8pm and 8:30pm, followed by a 2-hours SNL Xmas special. And another new episode Dec 28 at 9:30pm. Normally, NBC schedules new episodes of shows they don't like between xmas and new year's day...

    Anyways, Global will air SNL at 8pm followed by CBS's SWAT at 10pm in simulcast, and on Dec 28, Global scheduled a movie. They hid those 2 Great News episodes on January 1st at 10pm and 10:30pm. The Dec 28 original episode ain't showing up yet in Global's schedule.

    Dec 28th update : Looks like Global will shelf the Dec 28th episode of Great News and air it when you least expect it, as usual...

    Since Chicago Fire has been moved to the Friday night time slot, does this mean it is not doing well in the ratings and will soon be cancelled?

    From a practical point if view, Chicago Fire is better off thursdays at 7pm so it can get swapped in simulcast at 10pm whenever CBS decides to schedule a SWAT rerun. But CF is taking an Olympics break during february sweeps (Feb 1st, break, March 1st). Problem, whenever the 7 to 8pm slot is used for a pre-release, ET Canada ain't shown and there's a 30-minutes missing towards cancon requirements. Also, last fall, reruns of Undercover Boss Canada were fulfilling a 1-hour cancon requirement on friday 10pm slot. This winter, with the cancon variable moved wednesdays 8pm (Mary Kills People), the friday 10pm slot can now be used for post-releases.
