    Some takeaways from the press release and other notes:

    - CTV using The Amazing Race as a counterprogramming measure during the Olympics is intriguing but in terms of viewership, it's not going to have an impact. In some ways, it is surprising, because this will mark the first time in the show's history that CTV has scheduled it after CBS. That being said, I cannot see regular viewers of the show waiting until February, so they will just tune in to CBS beginning in January. Plus, with The X-FIles returning on the same night and time, my guess is that CTV had no other alternatives. Having The X-Files in pre-release at 7:00pm was probably not suitable given the content. They probably wanted to avoid airing it in post-release as well, given how well it did in simulcast during its run two years ago. As for The Amazing Race, except in rare occasions due to special event programming, CTV probably still does not have the clearance to air regularly scheduled episodes before CBS. Either one of these shows could have gone to CTV Two, but CTV ended up keeping both on their schedule.

    - Speaking of CTV Two, sigh...The Flash gets moved there once again (intentional or not, you probably have it figured out by now..). CTV has opted for the new show Ellen's Game of Games to take its place at least for six weeks until the Olympics. That probably means that the next cycle of The Voice could be making its return back to CTV, if last season was any indication. Through January and February, Lucifer will continue its run on Mondays at 8:00pm, while The Gifted wraps up in mid-January. Beyond that, CTV has nothing scheduled for Mondays 9:00pm and Legends of Tomorrow returns to that timeslot on The CW in February. But with CTV's stunt scheduling of The Amazing Race during the month, Legends will probably stick on CTV Two. What will happen once The Voice returns? Will CTV timeshift Lucifer again in pre-release either on Sunday or Monday?

    -Some shows missing from the press release include: Match Game and Shark Tank.

    Advanced listings show CTV airing the new season of Match Game Thursday at 10:00pm in post-release one night following ABC as of January 4. I thought CTV had dropped it altogether since all references to the show have been removed from CTV's website as well as Bell Media's Television page. Of course, this is just temporary since How to Get Away with Murder returns on January 18.

    As for Shark Tank, it might get a few first-run airings on CTV Two in January, with ABC scheduling two new back-to-back episodes throughout the month (they are likely doing this to finish off the season with American Idol returning in March) and CTV's Sunday night schedule changing from week to week until the Super Bowl, with the Golden Globes and NFL playoffs.

    - Also nowhere mentioned in the press release is what happens to Law & Order: SVU once The Launch begins its run. Presumably, it moves over to CTV Two in the same Wednesday timeslot. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    - CTV Two has scheduled back-to-back episodes of the TV Land original series Younger (likely earlier seasons) on Friday at 8:00pm starting January 5 while Once Upon a Time is on hiatus until March.

    - New midseason shows debuting in January that have not been picked up by a Canadian broadcaster thus far: 9-1-1 (FOX) and Child Support (ABC). Like most of The CW shows not already picked up by major broadcasters in Canada, the latest newcomer Black Lightning (premiering January 16) will be streaming on Netflix.

    During summer 2016, CTV ran a marathon of HBO's GoT season 1. It would have made sense to air S2 this february.
    Since thursday night football is over for CTV Two, Arrow will be aired in simulcast with The CW on thursdays, releasing the 6-days-later wednesday slot, so I thought they'd move L&O:SVU to CTV Two and air X-Files in post-release wednesdays 9pm. They scheduled a movie on Jan 3rd.

    Frankly, I don’t see CTV running another Game of Thrones marathon during the Olympics. They were looking to apply the same strategy that worked with The Sopranos in the early 2000s, but I don’t think it brought in satisfactory numbers. And besides, with the show nearing the end of its run, it would not make sense at this point for CTV to air one season at a time only as a counterprogramming measure during the Olympic Games. At that rate, they would only get to airing the final season many years after the show has ended. CTV could have actually used the summer months and even the holiday season if they wanted to seriously consider catching up, but that’s unlikely to happen. And unlike the past decade, there quicker alternatives now to catching up with earlier seasons of Game of Thrones rather than waiting for CTV to air it against an event that happens every two years.

    Arrow will be simulcast with The CW and first run on CTV Two Thursday nights. It seems probable that Law & Order: SVU will move there on Wednesday in the same timeslot to make room for The Launch on CTV, one week after the huge premiere that will be super simulcast on CTV Two and Much. CTV does not have room for The X-Files at 9:00pm (because of The Launch) so that’s why it is at 8:00pm in simulcast with FOX.

    CTV Two has scheduled movies almost every night for the first week of January after New Year’s Day so we’ll only get a better idea of what their midseason schedule will look like in the following week (starting January 8). Almost every night of the week, save for Wednesday, has gaps that need to be filled with some fall shows currently on hiatus and due to return later on in the year.

    You forgot about Roseanne starting in March TUesday at 8pm. Maybe you didn't go that far, but I am pretty sure it will simulcast on the main network, so The Voice will have to go to CTV Two and then The Flash wherever they feel like. Or maybe they will have ROseanne in pre-release at 7:30...

    I am fully aware of the return of Roseanne but that’s not until March 27, so between now and then, I’m sure that CTV will put out another press release or two regarding their spring lineup.

    It will be a one-hour premiere that night, so they will probably air it in pre-release at 7:00pm, before moving to its regular timeslot at 7:30pm. I hope that I’m wrong but usually when CTV moves a show to CTV Two midseason, it’s bound to stay there for the remainder of the year (in the case of The Flash). Which would suggest that The Voice may go back to CTV.

    Also don’t forget that This Is Us wraps up in mid-March so there’s another open spot on Tuesday nights. But again, I think we’re getting a little too far ahead and it will only be clear at least by the end of February.

    You're right, CTV also has the 2 Shondaland shows coming somewhere, most likely replacing Scandal and HTGAWM or they might put one of them after American Idol...we'll see later.

    I am wondering what they haven planned for Sundays after the Oscars. They will probably have whatever show ABC has at 10pm, but they have 7 to 10 with nothing to simulcast.

    They have the Grey's Anatomy spinoff and For the People which as I already mentioned will most likely got on Thursday replacing Scandal and HTGAWM on ABC. Quantico might go on Tuesday at 10pm once Kevin finishes it's season in March as well or one of their other 2 midseason shows, Deception and The Crossing from ABC.

    Do they have any original series I am forgetting?

    Again, I think that’s still pretty far ahead. But just for the sake of curiosity, here’s my assessment (regardless of whether it may happen or not):

    I assume that CTV has not picked up the revival of American Idol, which will air on Sundays. Perhaps it goes back to yesTV, which aired the last two seasons but that has not yet been confirmed.

    The 7:00pm block seems to be almost an afterthought. Unlike previous seasons where they had too many network shows to simulcast for the evening, and one of the shows would air in pre-release in this timeslot, that’s no longer a factor anymore. So I would not be surprised if this ends up serving as filler for more Big Bang Theory reruns. Last season following the Super Bowl, it was used for Big Bang reruns and weekly episodes of The Goldbergs in post-release, then in May, for new episodes of Lucifer upon its return from hiatus while The Voice was running on Mondays. Back in 2015 and 2016, CTV used this slot for MasterChef Canada, since Once Upon a Time got bumped an hour later to 8:00pm and aired in simulcast. Speaking of which...

    Once Upon a Time had the Sunday 8:00pm timeslot for the first six seasons. It was not until season 4 in 2014 that CTV was able to air it in simulcast, all made possible by The Amazing Race moving to Fridays and coincidentally, when they acquired the rights to the late NFL afternoon games. The show would go on a midseason hiatus, so during that time, it was primarily filler for movies and reruns, and very rare occasions for original programming. This season, it has been used already for new episodes of Lucifer and Shark Tank both airing in pre-release and yet again, more Big Bang Theory reruns. After the Oscars, it’s anyone’s guess. If the next season of The Voice were to return to CTV again like it did last spring, they could very well reserve this timeslot for new episodes of Lucifer again like they did in the fall.

    Ever since Desperate Housewives wrapped up its eight-season run in 2012, CTV has never had a regular show that aired in the 9:00pm timeslot beyond one season. Here’s a list of shows that aired in the spring for the following years:

    2013: Motive - season 1 (later moved to Thursday), Law and Order: SVU reruns
    2014: Believe (NBC)
    2015: Secrets and Lies - season 1 (ABC)
    2016: The Family (ABC, later moved to CTV Two), Castle originals in pre-release
    2017: Time after Time (ABC, pulled after few episodes), Match Game (ABC)

    The 10:00pm timeslot has also been a revolving door for several shows:
    2013 and 2014: The Mentalist (CBS)
    2015: Motive - season 3
    2016: Quantico (ABC)
    2017: Saving Hope - season 5 (first nine episodes)

    Other originals on tap for 2018:
    MasterChef Canada (season 5)
    The Detail (new Canadian series)

    One of the two new ABC series you mentioned could be pushed back to late spring / early summer. The Good Doctor was given a full season but with only 18 episodes, they could launch another show in the Monday 10:00pm timeslot sometime in the spring.

    ABC has released premiere dates for its midseason shows, so this is how it will affect CTV’s schedule for the spring.

    Sunday, March 11
    10:00pm Deception (new series)

    Tuesday, March 13
    10:00pm For The People (new series)

    Thursday, March 22
    9:00pm Grey’s Anatomy Spinoff (new series) (2 hours; regular timeslot as of March 29)

    Tuesday, March 27
    8:00pm Roseanne (1 hour; regular timeslot as of April 3)

    Monday, April 2
    10:00pm The Crossing (new series)

    Thursday, April 26
    10:00pm Quantico (season 3)

    *********

    Assuming CTV does not pick up American Idol (which will air both Sunday and Monday), they have free space on Sundays that can be used for some CanCon originals (new drama The Detail and new season of MasterChef Canada). And they already have The Voice on Monday and Tuesday (which last aired on CTV Two in the fall).

    The Good Doctor wraps up its first season at the end of March, giving way to The Crossing.

    Kevin (Probably) Saves The World was extended by a few episodes, which will take its run through mid-March. For The People takes its spot.

    How to Get Away with Murder also ends in mid-March. The Grey’s spinoff takes over the Thursday 9:00pm timeslot, so CTV will follow suit. Quantico will definitely run into the summer months with its late April start. Following the Olympics, they have time to fill for three weeks in the 9:00pm timeslot (March 1 to 15) and four weeks in the 10:00pm timeslot (March 29 to April 19).

    Still no midseason return date for Gotham (FOX). Assuming it goes back to Thursday where it aired for the fall, it’s bound for CTV Two. Also gaps to fill for Monday 9:00pm, once The Gifted ends. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow moves there in February but it will probably remain on CTV Two.

    The Mayor is on its way to being cancelled by ABC; no scheduling headaches for CTV as they always aired it on Saturdays in post-release.

    Almost everything falls into place. All comedies end up on CTV Two except TBBT and its spin-off YS.

    About the tuesday 8pm slot... For january, CTV dumps Flash to CTV Two in favor of NBC's Ellen Degeneres Game of Games, then there are the Olympics, then there's The Voice... By tuesday April 3rd, Roseanne may be seen as superior to The CW's Flash, which goes into reruns until the end of the month, but goes against The Voice, so that's why its announcement is upcoming.

    Take a wild guess which show will fill-up that 9pm timeslot on monday Jan 22... Hint : It's a sitcom, airing back-to-back...
