One thought on “MasterChef Canada, Spun Out and Motive launch CTV’s midseason”

  1. I still have about 6 episodes of Saving Hope to watch–at this point the only reason I’m still watching is because it’s Canadian although I’m getting bored with it. We all watch the various Masterchef incarnations in our household, great family viewing as me, the husband and kiddos all love cooking. Masterchef is the only reality show I still watch. And new shows Secrets & Lies and American Crime are my top picks for best-looking new midseason shows along with CBC’s book of Negroes, X Company and cable shows Texas Rising and The Outsiders.
