You know the network loves the show when they pull it off the air and then air the final three episodes of the season months later in the dog days of summer. And yes, that is sarcasm.
Why would a Canadian network care about its Canadian programming? (Yes, that’s sarcasm too.)
I would normally agree, but it seems Global cares about Rookie Blue and Combat Hospital which gives me hope. Then again, they are stronger shows with US broadcaster support (at least for now).
Yes, the caveat is a Canadian show with a US broadcaster will be simulcast and get a bigger marketing budget.
