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.

So City is placing Mom all over the schedule while shows like Chicago Med and Chicago Fire seem to be orphaned on Canadian Networks. Interesting.

I am really shocked about Chicago Fire and Chicago Med did not end up on another Canadian channel. I was wondering would Chicago Fire and Chicago Med air on CTV 2. I will probably watch both shows on NBC anyway.

Having Chicago PD on Global was a minor disaster for crossovers when they aired the same time on both networks. It messed up anyone without a PVR. I wouldn't be surprised if City or Global picked up Chicago Fire and Chicago Med before September. Most of their programming is CTV rejects as it is. City has some obvious spots to air them.

After almost 30 years on Global, I was stunned to hear that City has picked up The Simpsons, since their sister network FX now has the exclusive rerun rights to the iconic animated family.

Simpsons are leaving Global! :(

Guess I won't be able to watch them anymore since City has terrible reception from CNTower. Their transmitter power is set way to low.

Has anyone noticed from the recent announcement about Citytv Now and the promotional material used at the Rogers 2018 Upfronts that it seems like “City” will be rebranding back to “Citytv”?

I overlooked the following info from the press release that includes midseason shows.

Proven hits and fan favourites return as Citytv confirms the renewal of 16 prime-time series. Returning series are Citytv’s #1 show America’s Got Talent, his-and-hers The Bachelor / The Bachelorette franchise, Canadian mob thriller and Citytv original Bad Blood, Black-ish, Bob’s Burgers, fan favourite Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dancing with the Stars, Family Guy, Hell’s Kitchen, Hockey Night in Canada, Lethal Weapon, Life in Pieces, Modern Family, Mom, and last year’s breakout comedy hit The Orville.

I noticed The Blacklist is missing from the Citytv midseason list.

The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco is from Britbox and The Twilight Zone reboot is being developed by CBS All Access.

Has anyone noticed from the recent announcement about Citytv Now and the promotional material used at the Rogers 2018 Upfronts that it seems like “City” will be rebranding back to “Citytv”?
The "Citytv Now" branding makes sense, but I noticed that upfront press release was all "Citytv" and the newswire version even incuded the Citytv logo.

Here's the Citytv fall preview with the prime-time schedule in grid format. The branding there is all "City". :confused:

Since the season premiere of The Bachelor on Monday January 7 will run for 3 hours, City TV will schedule Manifest before or after, depending on the city. (one-time only)

A Million Little Things will return to City TV on Wednesday, January 16 at 10 PM ET, one day before ABC.

City TV moved A Million Little Things to Thursdays at 10 PM ET (post-ABC 9 PM) starting tonight.

The World's Best will premiere after the Super Bowl at approximately 10 PM ET on Sunday, Feb. 3. CBS will show it at 7 PM PT, so we'll see if City does the same. CBS' regular time slot is Wednesdays starting Feb. 6, so City may have to do some juggling.

EDIT: City will simsub the special two-hour The World's Best at 8 PM ET on Feb. 6, followed by 2 episodes of syndicated Mom.

CBS will air The World's Best at 8 PM ET on Feb. 13, before it moves to the regular 9 PM slot on Feb. 20. (Source) City will have a full slate of new episodes for the 13, so we'll have to see what gets priority.

Fox will air a two-hour season finale of Hell's Kitchen on Friday, Feb. 8. I don't have confirmation of City's schedule for that date, but the simsub shouldn't be a problem.
