    TORONTO (June 7, 2017) – With 16 unprecedented years as Canada’s most-watched network behind it, CTV unveiled today an unrivalled prime-time lineup featuring the most consistent schedule in North America updated with new series bringing heart, humility, humour, and humanity to viewers every night of the week. Fresh from a hugely successful L.A. Screenings buying trip, the CTV and CTV Two 2017/18 schedules will be presented by Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Content and Programming at the #CTVUpfront celebration of conventional television today in Toronto.

    “CTV’s unprecedented success centres around our unwavering mission to deliver only the best new programs to our viewers,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Content and Programming. “The 2017/18 CTV schedule features a curated collection of big-buzz new comedies and dramas with heart and soul, like prequel sitcom YOUNG SHELDON and new franchise drama THE GOOD DOCTOR from HOUSE creator David Shore. They all bolster a #1 lineup that already features TV’s two biggest returning freshman hits in DESIGNATED SURVIVOR and THIS IS US.”

    “On CTV Two, we are launching our strongest schedule ever with big returning franchises anchored for the first time by Thursday and Sunday Night Football,” continued Cosentino. “Touchdown CTV Two!”

    Among the highlights from CTV’s Fall 2017 prime-time schedule:

    1. Two all-new dramas from primetime’s reigning queen Shonda Rhimes with legal thriller FOR THE PEOPLE and the as yet untitled GREY’S ANATOMY spinoff following a group of heroic firefighters
    2. Reival of the eponymous, award-winning and boundary-breaking 1988-97 comedy ROSEANNE, with a trailer that has already racked up the most views of any new series with more than 33 million to date, and counting.
    3. Timely and epic allegory THE CROSSING, which has already been described as LOST 2.0
    4. DECEPTION, a new take on the police procedural that appoints a crime-solving magician to deal its dramatic twists
    5. New original music series and format THE LAUNCH, featuring world-renowned record executive Scott Borchetta (AMERICAN IDOL) and confirmed mentors Fergie and Ryan Tedder (One Republic).

    7. New original detective series THE DETAIL centers on three fiercely talented female homicide investigators who work tirelessly to solve crimes while navigating the complicated demands of their personal lives


    Big Touchdowns

    Bell Media is the home of the NFL in Canada and with a multi-year broadcast rights agreement extension that sees for the first time ever CTV TWO simulcasts of SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL and THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL. In addition, CTV continues to be the home of NFL Sunday programming at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., all playoff games, and, of course, the gold standard of premium sports content, the SUPER BOWL.


    Big News


    CTV announces today the major expansion of local news programming, delivering weekday newscasts at 5 p.m. (CTV NEWS AT FIVE) across all CTV local stations this fall. Creating an additional 35 hours of original local production each week, the added news programming on weeknights ensures viewers can find their most trusted CTV NEWS at 5 p.m. as well as 6 p.m. in their market. With a perspective that is distinctly Canadian, CTV News brings viewers the international and domestic news stories of the day making CTV NATIONAL NEWS the country’s most-watched national newscast, and CTV’s evening newscasts the top local choice in more markets than any other broadcast outlet. The award-winning W5, Canada’s most-watched current affairs and documentary program, returns for a 52nd season Saturdays at 7 p.m. on CTV, while venerable political discussion forum QUESTION PERIOD returns Sunday mornings.


    Big Chat


    CTV’s daytime schedule continues to win audiences with the Canadian TV’s strongest daytime lineup, owning the Top 4 daytime talk shows including THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW, LIVE WITH KELLY AND RYAN, THE VIEW, and DR. PHIL, along with THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW, THE SOCIAL, and THE DR. OZ SHOW. Kicking it all off is CTV’s daytime series YOUR MORNING.

    Big Late Night Laughs

    CTV’s premium late night lineup includes some of the most-talked about comedic stars of the moment including THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH, LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS and THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH JAMES CORDEN all of which have seen a “Trump bump” in their total viewers since the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Additional hit late night shows include THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON and CONAN.


    Big Events

    CTV delivers more live events than anywhere else. Television’s biggest event programming in 2017/18 includes Canada’s most-watched television events THE 90th ACADEMY AWARDS®, SUPER BOWL LII, THE 75th ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE® AWARDS, THE 69th PRIMETIME EMMY® AWARDS, THE 2017 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS, The 2018 iHEARTRADIO MUCH MUSIC VIDEO AWARDS, 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP, THE 2018 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS, THE TRAGICALLY HIP DOCUMENTARY, THE INVICTUS GAMES OPENING AND CLOSING CEREMONIES and more.

    Go Big With CTV Two


    With the addition of NFL Football programing on Thursdays and Sundays, CTV Two delivers its strongest prime-time schedule in history. With 18 hours of simulcast in primetime, more than ever before, CTV Two delivers a can’t-miss schedule every night of the week:


    • THE VOICE sings on Mondays and Tuesdays
    • Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9 p.m. are all about heroes with DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and ARROW
    • The laughs are abundant Wednesday with THE GOLDBERGS and AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE
    • Thursdays are action packed with THE NFL TODAY/FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA and THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
    • Fridays are fantastical with ONCE UPON A TIME and THE EXORCIST
    • On Sundays sports reign with FOOTBALL NIGHT IN AMERICA and SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
    • Comedy strips of THE BIG BANG THEORY, THE GOLDBERGS and cult comedy-classic SEINFELD lead into and cap off weekday programming

    The september-october lineup will be interesting. In the last 3 years since CBS has thursday night football, TBBT premieres mondays 8pm while CTV programmed it in pre-release at 7:30pm and keep Gotham in simulcast at 8pm.

    On monday sept 25, I'm pretty sure Lucifer will take a hike and CTV can't pass the opportunity to simsub TBBT premiere & Young Sheldon series premiere. The following week, Me Myself & I at 8:30pm and Lucifer at 7pm ?

    Nice to see The Flash back on CTV... but... another hiatus stunt from Fox will result in The Voice switching back to CTV ?

    Grey's Anatomy in simulcast thursdays sept-oct is a logic choice. Our fall predictions on this forum already doomed Gotham to CTV Two, but with football simsub, and nothing else to simulcast thursdays at 9pm (ABC's Scandal on Netflix, NBC's comedies on Global, Fox's Orville on City), The CW's Arrow at 9pm is the odd one out they could simsub, but Bell opted to scrap it and schedule Gotham in post-release instead.

    Fridays, OUAT and Exorcist dumped to CTV2 in favor of Blindspot and Inhumans... Huh. Exorcist dump to CTV2 was expected, but between OUAT and Blindspot, well, OUAT made the Numeris Top 30 once, after its winter hiatus on a slow march week... Its CTV2 banishment was easy.

    I could see CTV airing Lucifer in pre-release Sunday 8:00pm beginning September 24 while The Big Bang Theory is on Mondays with Me, Myself & I at 8:30pm. Once that experiment ends in late October, CTV can go back resuming to its Monday lineup and insert The Indian Detective on Sundays where it will run for four weeks. But Lucifer on Monday 7:00pm is also a possibility.

    The Primetime Emmy Awards, which will be on CBS this year, generally air the night before the first Monday of the fall premieres, but thanks to their scheduling with the football overruns, are being held one week earlier on Sunday, September 17.

    I assume that hopefully FOX won't repeat the same mistake - the long hiatuses for Gotham and Lucifer were unnecessary and kind of hurt both shows upon their return late in the season stateside. Lucifer actually did well for CTV during its weeks in pre-release. Lucifer will have 26 episodes to air next season - they got a full order of 22 episodes for season 3 in addition to four episodes held over from season 2. In terms of midseason replacements, FOX has another season of The X-Files for 11 episodes, which will once again be airing on CTV. If FOX schedules it on Mondays alongside Lucifer, then The Voice stays on CTV Two and The Flash continues on CTV.

    I suppose that even with football on CTV Two on Thursdays, they could have swapped Gotham and Arrow. For whatever reason, CTV opted to keep Gotham and air it in post-release while Arrow remains on CTV Two with a pre-release airing on Wednesday. Instead, CTV could have put Arrow on Thursday at 9:00pm in simulcast and Gotham in pre-release Wednesday 9:00pm on CTV Two, or even Thursday 7:00pm on CTV while Grey's Anatomy is in simulcast for September and October. But after a while, that would be too many scheduling moves. As for what happens midseason, let's save that for later...

    Once Upon a Time fell really hard in the ratings this past season, it just barely scraped by with a renewal especially with the casting changes. I think this will be the last season. If Blindspot can maintain the numbers it had on Wednesday, it may have a shot. In terms of consistency from one show to another, I guess it doesn't matter. Looking at Tuesdays, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow complement each other, but they are split between CTV and CTV Two respectively.

    Other than the fact that I can't get CTV2 with my indoor antenna, aren't the CTV2 banishments deemed somewhat less of a banishment now that Videotron carries it? Or is CTV2 still also shunned by other major tv providers as well?
    Warning: I'm not playing with a full deck.

    CBS, The CW, NBC and FOX have all announced their fall premiere dates thus far. Only ABC is left.

    Worth noting is the season premiere for Blindspot on Friday, October 27. This looks to be the new Grimm for NBC, which always had this show be the last to premiere late during the fall season.

    In that case, CTV has a gap in the Friday 8:00pm timeslot for September to October - and here are some options:

    - Temporarily air Once Upon a Time for few weeks before moving it back to CTV Two upon the return of Blindspot.

    - Move new Canadian original series The Indian Detective over from Sundays - it's scheduled to run for only four weeks and can fill in the timeslot until Blindspot returns. Use the Sunday 8:00pm timeslot for pre-release airings of Lucifer (one night before FOX) while The Big Bang Theory has its run on Mondays. On Sunday, September 24, there is the series premiere of Star Trek: Discovery on both CTV and Space at 8:30pm ET. Come late October, CTV can insert something new for a few weeks in the Sunday 8:00pm timeslot (perhaps new mini-series The Disappearance), while Lucifer moves back to Mondays in simulcast with Me, Myself & I moving to 7:30pm in pre-release.

    UPDATE: FOX just released their fall premiere dates. Seems like they're pushing the Lucifer season premiere a week later to Monday, October 2. It still has to go up against The Big Bang Theory for four weeks, but they avoid facing the series premiere of Young Sheldon as well as the season premiere of The Voice. In CTV's case, they have the option of airing Lucifer in pre-release at 7:00pm (ahead of The Big Bang Theory and Me, Myself & I) or Sunday at 8:00pm over the same period.

    And with ABC having announced their fall premieres, here is how they will have an impact on CTV:

    Monday: The Good Doctor premieres on September 25, while the new season of Lucifer and the series premiere of The Gifted (FOX) air on October 2. Does CTV go with the season premiere of The Voice on premiere week? If not, that's two hours to fill.

    Tuesday: The Flash does not return until October 10, while This Is Us returns on September 26 and newly titled Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (formerly The Gospel of Kevin) premieres on October 3.

    Wednesday: All shows scheduled for the evening return on September 27 with Criminal Minds (pre-CBS), Law & Order: SVU (NBC) and Designated Survivor (ABC).

    Thursday: For September and October, it will be Grey's Anatomy, Gotham and How to Get Away with Murder. Grey's returns with a two-hour season premiere on September 28 followed by How to Get Away with Murder. With Gotham's season premiere pushed up a week early to September 21, it will be moving around before settling into its regular timeslot on October 5. Come November, Grey's leads off the night at 7:00pm followed by The Big Bang Theory and newcomer Young Sheldon with the rest of the night unchanged.

    Friday: Blindspot does not return until October 27 - perhaps Once Upon a Time gets a short run on the main network? Marvel's Inhumans has a two-hour premiere on September 29 then settles into its regular timeslot on October 6. Blue Bloods returns on September 29.

    Saturday: New sitcom The Mayor premieres Tuesday October 3 on ABC. I assume they will follow the same approach like they did with American Housewife last season.

    Sunday: Shark Tank has a two-hour season premiere on October 1, along with new drama Ten Days in the Valley. The Indian Detective is a CanCon original series with a short run of just four episodes - the very earliest it can premiere is October 8. However, ABC just announced that reality series The Toy Box is premiering its new season on October 1 at 7:00pm. Assuming that CTV still has the rights to that show, there's no room for it thanks to NFL unless it gets bumped over to CTV Two. Another possibility would be to move The Indian Detective elsewhere and have The Toy Box run right after football.

    Speaking of CTV Two, The Goldbergs and American Housewife return on September 27 and Once Upon a Time returns October 6.

    Anyways, we'll get a better picture in the next few weeks once CTV and CTV Two officially announce their premiere dates.

    Another problem is Me, Myself & I.

    On monday sept 25th at 8pm, TBBT premiere with Young Sheldon at 8:30pm is a no-brainer simsub. CBS's Kevin Can Wait goes to Global, followed by "MMI" series premiere at 9:30, ABC's Good Doctor at 10, so a TBBT filler at 9pm seems like the only CTV option, unless there's a sitcom they can't simsub on premiere week ?

    On monday oct 2nd on CBS, 9JKL takes the 8:30pm spot which goes to Global, so TBBT goes at 7:30pm, Lucifer premiere at 8, Gifted premiere at 9, Good Doctor at 10, meaning MMI at... 7pm instead of etalk ?

    I totally forgot about Me, Myself & I.

    Monday Sept 25 - Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, likely Big Bang filler, Me Myself & I, The Good Doctor

    Monday Oct 2 - Lucifer (they don't have room on Sunday Oct 1 in pre-release thanks to Shark Tank 2 hr premiere), Big Bang Theory, Me Myself & I (pre-CBS), The Gifted (s-FOX), The Good Doctor

    Assuming that they want to keep Big Bang Theory in simulcast during its Monday run, then Lucifer would remain in pre-release at 7:00pm or they also have the option of running it Sunday at 8:00pm through the month of October. CTV has the CanCon original series The Indian Detective in that timeslot but with a short run of four episodes, it could be probably shelved until later in the fall for an uninterrupted run or even moved to another timeslot (Friday 8:00pm until Blindspot returns or Thursday 9:00pm if Gotham moves to 7:00pm in pre-release until Grey's/BBT/Sheldon resumes in November). Then there's also the ABC reality series The Toy Box making a mess of things and of course additional NFL games at 7:00pm. And don't forget the American Music Awards on November 19.

    Decisions, decisions, decisions...
