    You can add Family Food Fight as a midseason reality show on ABC without a home in Canada.

    I haven't seen anyone pick up CW's midseason show In The Dark. Maybe I missed that one.

    The Flash (presumably) moving to Netflix Canada, acquires rights to seasons 1-4

    With Netflix now taking on the rights for seasons 1-4 of The Flash as of September 1, it's looking more like they will also have the rights to the upcoming fifth season.

    Season 1 will be dropped from CraveTV at the end of this month. Probably won't be long before seasons 2 and 3 also get removed.

    Should not come as any surprise seeing how Netflix Canada has acquired exclusive first-run rights to a number of shows from The CW in recent years including Black Lightning, Riverdale and Jane the Virgin just to name a few.

    Plus, all of their shows have been transferred over to specialty networks, with both DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow heading to Space and Supergirl continuing to air on Showcase.
