Canadian broadcaster CTV released its fall schedule for the recently acquired A-Channel network, the Hollywood Reporter says. The network will feature newcomers “Eleventh Hour,” The Mentalist” and “Fringe,” as well as returning U.S. series “Pushing Daisies,” “Private Practice,” “Dirty Sexy Money,” “Cold Case” and “Gossip Girl,” the newspaper says. The main CTV Network will feature established returning series “American Idol,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” the “CSI” franchise, “Criminal Minds” and “Desperate Housewives,” plus Canadian dramas “Flashpoint” and “The Listener,” the newspaper notes.

  1. WOW! I’m not liking this. Folks from Onterio have few choices already, for diversity. I personally see Global (CH 22 CIII-TV Windsor, ONT), CBC (CH 9, CBET-TV Windsor, ONT.) and A Channel (CH 16, CHWI, Windsor, ONT). Other than that, there’s not much in independant ENGLISH TV. I’m rather scared that the CRTC is allowing these stations to merge, foregoing quality and ideas, FROM THE CANADIAN PERSPECTIVE.
    Currently, in the US, Duopoly, cross ownership, etc., have rendered the TV scene to be Snowy quality in ratings and Black and white on new ideas, as borrowed content from other countries increases.
    Thanks Rogers/Canwest and CTV for your efforts into normalizing lack of quality. CBS/CW and Fox/My Network. NOTE HOW RATINGS DROPPED on all mentioned. Without American Idol, would fox still be a player???
    I guess its shove this down everyone’s throats and hope they get used to less than glamourous (the extra “U” was intedned) world of modern public entertainment. The public has no say. I find that shameful. Even in other media, the public’s view isn’t looked at, or asked of.
    Granted, A Channel isn’t that big, but the ramifications are HUGE.
