In the news: Canadian fall schedule

Brendan Kelly of Variety reports on the Canadian TV landscape and fall season:

  • CTV tries takeover of rival Chum
    “The big shake-up on the horizon — CTV Globemedia’s takeover of rival broadcaster Chum — has yet to receive approval from Canadian watchdog the CRTC, with the regulator expected to rule on the acquisition at the end of the summer. So for the moment, both CTV and Chum continue to act independently of each other and both bought separately at the recent L.A. Screenings.”
