I haven't payed attention of late but what happened to the scandal with the owners of CHCH? How are they able to afford this programming or are old shows cheap to buy?

Just trying to remove that damn setup progress bar.

Here is the thread: http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/12-t...ml#post2738529

Basically, the CHCH news operation was actually run by a separate corporation that declared bankruptcy and the employees lost their jobs. A new company hired some of the news staff and continued CHCH news operations. Presumably, the news costs less to operate than it did before and there will also be a new independent local news fund that CHCH is eligible for. The company that owned the CHCH channel wasn't directly affected. You can review the last few pages of that thread and post there if you wish.

Here's a summary of the schedule changes.

First-run prime-time A year ago they lost Nashville when it was cancelled by ABC and later picked up by CMT U.S. and W Network in Canada.
This year Rosewood and Last Man Standing were cancelled by their U.S. networks.
They are picking up Empire, Fresh Off The Boat and To Tell The Truth. They are probably getting a relatively good deal on these shows, since the big 3 didn't want them and the U.S. studios probably had to take whatever they could get.
The newsmagazine shows will be the same as before - 20/20, 48 Hours, 60 Minutes.

Other prime-time
Keeping White Collar
Dropping CSI: NY, NUMB3RS and the original X-Files
Dropping the Monday and Tuesday night movie to make room for more TV series
Adding a Saturday night movie instead of old recycled newsmagazine shows.

Daytime
Justice With Judge Mablean is the only daytime show mentioned, so it looks like they will drop Cheers, Degrassi, Happy Days, Judge Judy and probably The Pinkertons.

CHCH has published their graphic schedule - click on "NEW THIS FALL - COMING SEPTEMBER 2017"
Shows - CHCH

They dropped Inside the Story and will show Degrassi The Next Generation weekdays at 7:30 PM. Bloomberg North will take the weekend slot at 6:30 PM.

Season 1 of Mars from Nat Geo will air at 8 PM Mondays. The series only has 6 episodes, so they may air Genius after that.

I couldn't figure out how CHCH was going to air House of Cards without severe editing in the timeslot anyways. A lot of NSF-OTA content unless they are trying to give 1990's late night CITY-TV some competition.

I gave up on the show in the second season as it was too much adult content for my tastes.

Inglewood your Canadian TV showed The Sopranos so House of Cards is tamer than that!

Because of Kevin Spacey's sexual assault allegations, that's why.

Motion Content Group To Develop Canadian Drama With CHCH Deal | Deadline

This won't affect CHCH's schedule immediately, but it's worth noting that they have original programming in the pipeline, from the same company that co-developed The Pinkertons and Wynonna Earp (which has since moved to Bell's Space Channel.)

(can't see a newer thread - please move if I missed it)

I spotted that CHCH had rejigged their daytime schedule - mostly similar shows, but I see The Monkees there - is that new, or did I just miss it before.

Either way, I thought I'd mention it, as my Rogers PVR said it's the pilot today (11:30 AM) so that might interest someone ... hmm, though Zap2it tells me it's episode 10 ... which probably means they rejigged the schedule on Monday May 27.


... ah, they are both right. NBC aired the pilot as the 10th episode originally in 1966.
