From a media release:

SAVING HOPE (Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning Jan. 2 on CTV and CTV GO):
CTV’s original hit drama SAVING HOPE returns for an emotionally charged new season. Airing in the network’s prestigious GREY’S ANATOMY timeslot, SAVING HOPE returns with a two-part, two week premiere event. With a shocking death and surprise pregnancy revealed in the season premiere, secrets and scandals begin to take hold of Hope Zion Hospital. It’s a tumultuous time for Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance), Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) and Dr. Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies), as new romances and complications emerge unleashing a rollercoaster of emotions in the halls of Hope Zion. And will a major turn of events finally push Charlie to admit his biggest secret to Alex? It’s more sex, lies, ghosts, and surgery on an all new season of SAVING HOPE.

MASTERCHEF CANADA (Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT beginning Jan. 20 on CTV and CTV GO):
The cooking competition series MASTERCHEF CANADA debuts in January, providing an opportunity for Canadian amateur chefs to develop their culinary skills as they compete for the MASTERCHEF CANADA title. In keeping with the MASTERCHEF format, the contestants will face individual and team-based cooking challenges, which result in one or more home cooks being eliminated each week, until finally Canada’s first MASTERCHEF is crowned. The trio of elite Canadians selected to judge the series includes debonair and renowned restaurateur Michael Bonacini, self-proclaimed ‘Demon Chef’ and international culinary superstar Alvin Leung, and charming creative force Claudio Aprile.
