    NBC starts AGT that night 8pm to 10pm, which Citytv simsubs and wins the BBM Top 30 ratings with it. So, what's CTV gonna program there? Nope, not 2 hours of TBBT crapola (this time), Bell Media looked in the catalogue for really inexpensive show from the last decade, find the solution in the Sony folder, and yahtzee, they found Unforgettable, which initially premiered in Sept 2011 and currently reruns on E! et en français sur Max. Starting at 8pm. Match Game reruns at 9pm.

    The previous day, monday, CTV will simsub The CW's rerun of Howie Mandell's JFL for 90 minutes, but oh, how to fill 30 minutes? You know it.

    Carter S2 returns this friday May 22nd.
    We had a good run: 2006 to 2020. Thanks for the informations and debates.

    Unforgettable is very odd choice. Why not show some shows they have exclusive on Crave, some have a few seasons and never been on broadcast. But a show that was repeetad about 20 times each episodes on then Bravo and now on E! like you mentioned...

    Can't wait for CSI reruns this fall on CTV!

    The Mach Game is not a rerun but most likely the previous Sundays episode which was pre-empted for a simulcast of indiana Jones with CBS.

    I think Bell Media is waiting for all US network's respective fall schedule to be out before taking decisions to burn Crave exclusives on conventional television, depending on scheduling holes. Considering Crave is gonna be Canada's home for HBO Max, some selected content from CBS All Access, probably Peacock too.

    The CW pushed In the Dark S2 and Pandora S2 to fall instead of their expected summer run, CTV is expected to simsub NBC's run of Transplant and Fox's run of LA's Finest, not sure who picked up ABC's United We Fall but I expect ABC to program some Disney+ shows for the fall... Anyways, CTV might decide to program some Crave exclusives once all pieces of the big fall puzzle are in place. Until then, Unforgettable and some annoying TBBT marathons are expected for the summer.

    Unforgettable is also on CHCH (now listed for Tuesday). I re-watched a few episodes last year on CHCH (when it was on Fridays) ... simply because I couldn't remember which episodes I had already seen (I also have many unwatched ones still on my computer).

    Bell is generally a lousy programmer ... often skipping E! originals (not even available online via Canadian site) and replacing them with older reruns of various tv shows.
    Warning: I'm not playing with a full deck.

    OK, CTV's summer is, pathetic, to say the least. On mondays, Fox reruns 911 Lone Star but CTV opted for a TBBT filler at 8, Bob Hearts rerun simsub, Jann at 9 followed by Goldbergs and Criminal Minds at 10.

    CTV reruns This Is Us saturday at noon, a Charlie's Angels movie at 1pm, and a low-level cancon movie at 8pm. Sunday afternoon, Spiderman.

    So, what about a movie on monday night instead, CTV? You have a 3 hours slot, or 3.5 hours if you scrap the 7:30pm TBBT syndicated crap.

    If I'm not mistaken, CTV aired In the Dark last summer after it ended its run on The CW. There's plenty of room during this unusual TV summer of 2020.

    In the Dark is starting next week on CTV Drama (Thursday June 4th). Last year it started day and time with The CW on Bravo. They aired it after on CTV like you said.

    Not sure why they waited and did not simulcast this year It's not liek CTV Drama has too much original. They only have 1 new show on the schedule, Killing Eve and that ends now, so they still will be at 1 with In the Dark.

    I understand they are spreding out originals with the Covid-19, but they literals have thousands of shows they own that never aired on broadcast.
