In the news: CTV’s fall schedule

Lee-Anne Goodman of the Canadian Press points out the lack of new Canadian shows:

  • CTV congratulates itself for U.S. shows it’s picked up for fall in glitzy launch
    “The network’s Canadian shows, in fact, weren’t highlighted till midway through the launch, when Brent Butt took to the stage to promote the upcoming season of the beloved hit sitcom, “Corner Gas.” “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” “Whistler” and “Robson Arms” join “Corner Gas” on the slate of returning Canadian shows, but there were no new ones on the schedule.”

Marise Strauss of Playback notes a conspicuous absence:

  • CTV drums up drama
    “Absent from the CTV schedule, however, is the homegrown comedy Jeff Ltd., which aired on Saturdays.”
