    New Series

    From award-winning executive producer, writer, and creator Chuck Lorre and Marco Pennette, B POSITIVE stars Thomas Middleditch and Annaleigh Ashford. The comedy is about a therapist and newly divorced dad who is faced with finding a kidney donor when he runs into a rough-around-the-edges woman from his past who volunteers her own. Together they form an unlikely bond and begin a journey that will change both of their lives. Kether Donohue, Sara Rue, and Kamryn Kunody also star. Chuck Lorre and Marco Pennette are executive producers for Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc. James Burrows directed the pilot.

    When the patriarch (Emmy Award®-winner Gerald McRaney) of a mega-rich Southern family, famed for creating a wildly successful Christian television network, dies in a plane crash, his wife (five-time Emmy Award-nominee and Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe®-winner Kim Cattrall) and family are stunned to learn that he fathered three illegitimate children, all of whom are written into his will, threatening their family name and fortune. With monumental twists and turns, FILTHY RICH presents a world in which everyone has an ulterior motive – and no one is going down without a fight.

    The classic TV game show returns, hosted and executive produced by Emmy® Award-nominated comedienne and actress Leslie Jones. The fast-paced and energetic series follows three teams of two as they battle it out using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise to win big cash prizes. The original format aired from 1965-1967 and went on to become a global sensation. SUPERMARKET SWEEP is produced by Fremantle, and executive producers include Leslie Jones, Hunter Seidman and Jennifer Mullin, Alycia Rossiter and Wes Kauble.

    Returning Series

    ALL RISE (Season 2)
    A courthouse drama that follows the chaotic, hopeful, and sometimes absurd lives of its judges, prosecutors, and public defenders, as they work to get justice for the people of Los Angeles amidst a flawed legal process. Among them is Judge Lola Carmichael (Simone Missick), a highly regarded and impressive former deputy district attorney who leans in, pushing the boundaries and challenging the expectations of what a judge can be.

    THE AMAZING RACE (Season 32)
    The multiple Emmy Award®-winning reality series hosted by Phil Keoghan follows teams of two as they embark on a trek around the world. At every destination, each team must compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks are completed will they learn of their next location. Teams who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning THE AMAZING RACE and the $1 million prize.

    BLUE BLOODS (Season 11)
    A drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement, led by Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck), the New York Police Commissioner. The Reagan brood includes his father, Henry (Len Cariou), former Chief; his eldest son, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), a seasoned detective and family man; his daughter, Erin (Bridget Moynahan), a New York Assistant D.A.; and Jamie (Will Estes), the youngest Reagan who is also a cop.

    From award-winning creator, executive producer and writer Chuck Lorre, BOB HEARTS ABISHOLA is a love story about a middle-aged compression sock businessman from Detroit who unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, a Nigerian immigrant, while recovering from a heart attack and sets his sights on winning her over. Undaunted by Abishola’s (Folake Olowofoyeku) lack of initial interest or the vast differences in their backgrounds, Bob (Billy Gardell) is determined to win Abishola’s heart, in this comedic examination of immigrant life in America.

    THE CONNERS (Season 3)
    The Conners continue to grapple with parenthood, dating, pregnancy, financial pressures, and aging in working-class America. Through it all – the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, and the breakdowns – with love, humor, and perseverance, the family prevails.

    THE GOOD DOCTOR (Season 4)
    Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, continues to use his extraordinary medical gifts at St. Bonaventure Hospital’s surgical unit. As his friendships deepen, Shaun continues to tackle the world of dating and romantic relationships, and work harder than he ever has before, navigating his environment to prove to his colleagues that his talents as a surgeon will save lives. The series stars Freddie Highmore as Dr. Shaun Murphy, Antonia Thomas as Dr. Claire Browne, Hill Harper as Dr. Marcus Andrews, Richard Schiff as Dr. Aaron Glassman, Christina Chang as Dr. Audrey Lim, Fiona Gubelmann as Dr. Morgan Reznick, Will Yun Lee as Dr. Alex Park, and Paige Spara as Lea Dilallo.

    GREY'S ANATOMY (Season 17)
    Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), and the team of doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial, are faced with life-or-death decisions on a daily basis. They seek comfort from one another, and at times, more than just friendship. Together they discover that neither medicine nor relationships can be defined in black and white.

    JANN (Season 2)
    Jann’s (Jann Arden) hilarious, attention-drawing antics continue as the second season picks up immediately following last season’s cliffhanger finale. Did Jann embark on a tour with her nemesis, Sarah McLachlan, or stay behind to help her mother Nora (Deborah Grover), who’s showing early signs of memory loss, and sister Max (Zoie Palmer), who was put on bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy? This season, Jann sets out to win her family and ex-girlfriend Cynthia (Sharon Taylor) back – though Jann’s idea of “thoughtful” can be a little over the top. Meanwhile, there’s tension between Jann and her new manager Cale (Elena Juatco), who lines up music gigs that are outside of Jann’s comfort zone.

    LAW & ORDER: SVU (Season 22)
    Created by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf, LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, entering its 22nd season, is the longest-running primetime live-action series of all time. This hard-hitting and emotional series from NBC’s LAW & ORDER brand chronicles the lives of the Special Victims Unit of the New York City Police Department, an elite squad of detectives who investigate crimes of sexual assault, child abuse and domestic violence.

    As commander of the SVU, Captain Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) is a seasoned veteran of the unit who has seen it all. She leads with empathy and professionalism, all the while dealing with her difficult past as a product of rape, and her responsibility as a trailblazer in survivor advocacy, both of which influence the way she relates to the victims and perpetrators of each case. Olivia Benson is now the longest-running female character in a primetime live-action series.

    As Benson’s second-in-command, Sgt. Odafin “Fin” Tutuola (Ice T) adds a unique sense of humour and undercover investigative experience, making him a formidable match for any partner. Senior Detective Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) has earned her place as an integral part of the team while facing head-on the emotional toll it takes to work SVU, while Officer Katriona “Kat” Azar Tamin (Jamie Gray Hyder) learns the ropes and pushes boundaries in her first year at SVU. ADA Dominick “Sonny” Carisi (Peter Scanavino) brings a fresh outlook and distinctive style of investigation to his cases while navigating the politics of the DA’s office.

    LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Wolf Entertainment. Dick Wolf is creator and executive producer. Warren Leight, Julie Martin, Mariska Hargitay, Norberto Barba, Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.

    MAGNUM P.I. (Season 3)
    A modern take on the classic series, centres on Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez), a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. A charming rogue, American hero, and die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin’s Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business. The “majordomo” of the property is Juliet Higgins (Perdita Weeks), a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent whose second job is to keep Magnum in line, with the help of her two Dobermans. When Magnum needs back-up on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors, Theodore “TC” Calvin (Stephen Hill), a former Marine chopper pilot who runs Island Hoppers, a helicopter tour business, and Orville “Rick” Wright (Zachary Knighton), a former Marine door-gunner-turned-impresario of Oahu’s coolest nightclub and the most connected man on the island. Suspicious of Magnum's casual attitude and presence at his crime scenes, Detective Gordon Katsumoto (Tim Kang) finds that he and Magnum are more alike than either of them care to admit. One of Magnum's biggest supporters is Teuila "Kumu" Tuileta (Amy Hill), the unofficial “House Mom” and cultural curator of Robin's Nest. With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case!

    THE MASKED SINGER (Season 4)
    The singing competition series features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head-to-toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity. With each performance, the host, panellists, audience, viewers, and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Ranging from Grammy Award® winners to legendary athletes, and everything in between, the singers may attempt to throw the crowd off their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing his or her true identity.

    THE ROOKIE (Season 3)
    John Nolan (Nathan Fillion), the oldest rookie in the LAPD, has used his life experience, determination, and sense of humor to keep up with rookies 20 years his junior. Nolan is continually put to the test by a host of new challenges, romantic relationships, and deadly criminals, as he looks to figure out what kind of cop he ultimately wants to be. THE ROOKIE stars Fillion along with Mekia Cox as Nyla Harper, Alyssa Diaz as Angela Lopez, Richard T. Jones as Sergeant Wade Grey, Titus Makin as Jackson West, Melissa O’Neil as Lucy Chen, and Eric Winter as Tim Bradford. Alexi Hawley is writer and executive producer. Mark Gordon, Nathan Fillion, Michelle Chapman, Jon Steinberg, Bill Norcross, and Terence Paul Winter are executive producers on the series. THE ROOKIE is a co-production with Entertainment One (eOne) and ABC Studios.

    SHARK TANK (Season 12)
    The Sharks – tough, self-made, multimillionaire and billionaire tycoons – invest in America's best businesses and products. The Sharks will give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the American dream and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires.

    STATION 19 (Season 4)
    Following a group of heroic Seattle firefighters as they put their lives and hearts on the line, the series takes us inside the tough, tight-knit, and sometimes heartbreaking world of the city's bravest first responders.

    STUMPTOWN (Season 2)
    Based on the graphic novel series, STUMPTOWN follows Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders) – a strong, assertive, and sharp-witted veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt, and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great PI, but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police.

    THIS IS US (Season 5)
    Everyone has a family. And every family has a story. THIS IS US chronicles the Pearson family across the decades: from Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) as young parents in the 1980s, to their kids Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz), and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) searching for love and fulfillment in the present day. This grounded, life-affirming dramedy reveals how the tiniest events in our lives impact who we become, and how the connections we share with each other can transcend time, distance and even death.

    Emmy Award-winning host Jimmy Kimmel returns as host and executive producer of WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE 20 years after the prime-time series debuted. The series features celebrity contestants playing for charity, bringing a guest of their choice along to help them answer questions: a relative, a beloved teacher or a famed trivia expert – anyone they want.

    YOUNG SHELDON (Season 4)
    For young Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage), it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn’t always helpful in a land where church and football are king. And while the vulnerable, gifted, and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him.

    Source: Numeris, 2019-20 BYTD (Sept. 16, 2019 – May 10, 2020). Commercial stations only. Primetime Monday-Sunday 7p.m.-11 p.m.

    Very predictable except Thursdays. They think Young Sheldon and B Positive will be more popular than Station 19, which I don't get since last year Station 19 was 2nd to Grey's Anatomy and did better a couple ofm times. But that can change of course if Young Sheldon goes lower again this year as last year and B Positive gets good or bad ratings.

    So we have the 2 L&O at the same time at 10pm. No regards to Canadian viewers as it will be a mess to wacth is you don't record them as it will crossover a few times.

    Of course Tuesday at 10pm is empty probably means they are (still) negociating to get Big Sky. This is a big series with a big producers and for sure they are at least trying to get it to simulcast. Produced 20th TV and A+E. They have a deal with 20th TV/Disney, but I think the series is sold through A+E Studios, thus not an automatic deal in place. And with David E Kelley as producer, maybe they are askign more than CTV wants to pay. I am assumming here, might be somthing else completely.

    They let go neXT to Globla and everything else was as it was predicted by all.

    Of course The Goldberg is gone, Americna Housewives on Saturdays. Maybe those will be simulcast on CTV2, but they are not giving that schedule contrary to what they usally do. I also assume The Voice will be on CTV2. Football on Sundays and Thursdays. Criminal Mids reruns everywhere else ;)

    Transplant premieres Sept 1st on NBC (13 weeks uninterrupted puts the season finale Nov 24), while I'm not even sure production began on ABC's "Big Sky".

    Historically, NBC never treated canadian productions with respect, it also occupies New Amsterdam's timeslot, so as soon as american productions are ready to air, NBC will expedite Transplant to saturday burnoffs, and by that time, ABC will probably premiere Big Sky.
    We had a good run: 2006 to 2020. Thanks for the informations and debates.

    So it seems CTV2 has dissapeared from all the press release and the CTV website. The website has just been redone and is basically a combine website for all the CTV branded channels, but nowhere to be found is CTV2. The new site is basically a copy of the Crave website with the CTV brand instead.

    They do have a CTV2 line of shows on the 'On Air' section. I can understand they want to merge everyhting together, but are they still programming CTV2 after the summer? I would think they are, but why not showing a fall schedule. Maybe because of the pandemic and because the main channel schedule is very tentative to bgin with. Just find it odd they are not mentioning it anywhere, even for NFL nights

    Or maybe they're about to close down the CTV2 stations. That would be sad.

    Fantastic, the "On Air" page defaults to Toronto ("CP24 Live at 5" makes it obvious) and I can't find the region selection. Under Schedule, there's Time Zone (ET), but nobody cares about CP24 outside GTA. Was the redesign idiot thinking "Just Log In with your participating service provider and it's gonna be fine" ? Yeah, well, Vidéotron ain't participating, and antenna users cannot login, so they default to Toronto.

    So Stumptown has been un-renewed by ABC, For Life will replace it on Wednesday at 10pm as ABC is moving it up from Midseason. The Rookie has been pushed to midseason.

    And yes they finally picked up Big Sky after all. Tuesday at 10pm starting November 17th.
