City TV & OMNI 2016-17 schedule

This thread will discuss the schedule updates for City TV and OMNI broadcast networks from Rogers Media for the 2016-17 broadcast year.

I post schedule updates, series premieres and specials based on press releases as well as series renewals and cancellations as they are announced. I don't usually post on-going episode information, repeats, program descriptions or "PR-speak," so if you want more info, you can click on the associated link.

As a reminder, the following shows from the 2015-16 season have been cancelled by the U.S. network:

Bordertown (FOX)
Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life (FOX)
Grandfathered (FOX)
The Grinder (FOX)
Mike & Molly (CBS)
The Muppets (ABC)
Rush Hour (CBS)
Undateable (NBC)

Apparently, Global has decided not to renew Supergirl for season 2, so City picked it up. In the U.S., the show moved from CBS to CW, due to mediocre ratings.

Hmm, no Simpsons on their schedule like rumoured. Maybe wishful thinking, but I wonder if they plan to put it on FXX and make Simpsons World available in Canada?

The Supergirl rumour also turned out to be false.

I believe Global retains The Simpsons as that show is on their Fall Preview site.

Starting Thursday next week, Thursday Night Football will be off CBS. In Canada, it will also be off City and go to SN exclusively. City then partly follows CBS Thursday (Mom and Life in Pieces).

However, TNF will be back OTA on week 11, Nov. 17, all the way to week 16. This time on NBC. What will City / Rogers do in this situation? Will City abandon its mid-Fall schedule and air TNF with simsub or will TNF stay on SN and thus losing simsub opportunity?

Well SportNet can ask for a simsub from all providers, Bell, Cogeco, Rogers et al. The BDU has the option of simsubbing or not for a specialty service. What do you think Rogers Cable will do? Bell simsubs TSN a lot on its Satellite and Fibe services.

Are you talking about Superbowl rule. That CRTC ruling only applies to the Superbowl not the rest of the season. In general if an OTA broadcaster requests a simsub then the BDU must carry it out. If a speciality service like TSN or SN asks then it is up to the BDU's discretion as to whether to carry the simsub out.

Result of Let’s Talk TV hearings - Jan. 29 2015 - Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2015-25
Quote:
...the Commission is of the view that BDUs should no longer be allowed to provide simultaneous substitution for specialty services and will amend the Regulations accordingly. This will contain simultaneous substitution to a narrow area of application, namely over-the-air signals.
Bell had appealed that policy and in Sept. 2016, the court ruled:

I looked earlier today and still couldn't find any evidence that the CRTC actually changed the regulations, almost 2 years later.
