  • Jeff Ltd to air following American Idol on Wednesday, March 14 –

CTV will program two of its original comedy series in coveted timeslots that have become available in its schedule next week. An all-new episode of the acclaimed dramatic comedy Robson Arms will air Monday, March 12 at 8:30 p.m. ET on CTV immediately following the Corner Gas season finale. In addition, an all-new episode of the Gemini-nominated series Jeff Ltd will air Wednesday, Mar. 14 at 9:30 p.m. ET on CTV immediately following American Idol. Robson Arms and Jeff Ltd continue to air back-to-back in their regular Saturday night timeslot on CTV from 9 to 10 p.m. ET (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times).

In Monday’s episode of Robson Arms, Carol (Linda Cash) is enjoying the single, unfettered life until her teenaged-daughter, Georgia, shows up one dark and stormy night. Georgia, still smarting after her mother’s abrupt departure and subsequent year of “finding herself” in India, rejects her mother’s attempt at bonding, but seeks attention by wreaking havoc in the building. When Georgia’s latest web movie leaves Carol having to dodge a goodnight kiss from Brent the Shopping Cart Guy, Carol breaks down and asks her husband to take Georgia back. Georgia overhears and plots her most self-destructive prank of all. Can the two ever be on equal footing — or in the same headspace, as the case may be?

Robson Arms will follow the season finale of Canada’s most-watched comedy series, Corner Gas. Last week, Corner Gas attracted a season-high audience of 1.8 million viewers. On Feb. 27, Robson Arms attracted 569,000 viewers in a special timeslot following American Idol, up almost 60 per cent compared to it season average and up 77 per cent among the key A18-49 demo.

In Wednesday’s episode of Jeff Ltd, Jeff (Jeff Seymour) hasn’t given up on being part of the “Fish Donuts” empire and enlists his business associate Gavin to create a robotic donut vending machine – The Auto-Fish 9000. Meanwhile, Jeff tries to dodge the advances of both Nathalie and Dorota when Vladimir invites him to dinner as a gesture of thanks for saving his life. Jeff Ltd will follow American Idol’s first Top 12 results episode.
