This thread will discuss the schedule updates for the DHX Television Channels for the 2016-17 broadcast year, consisting of Family Channel, Family CHRGD, Family Jr. and Télémagino.

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 in the post.

F2N is the "teen block" on Family Channel. I guess they're trying to copy the Adult Swim programming block on Cartoon Network.

DHX have been resting on their laurels putting in the barest minimum of Cancon, then cancelling the series. Also compounding the hurt by running it in 365 days a year for 3...4... even 5 years straight!!!! Even when Family was owned by Astral Media. No show made it (U.S.) Disney 88 episode (4 season) finishing line. Because DHX & Corus drop the axe when minimum Cancon is met.

Example: Really Me lasted 26 episodes & still airs. Baxter lasted just 12. Overruled! 26. All shows still it airing in 2016.

I hope they replace crap like Fresh Prince Of Bel Air. A 25yo old series *so* old, it now airs on U.S. cable [email protected] (classic TV block on Nickeldeon)! They think THAT'S what today's 'tweens & young teens want to watch?!

I abandoned Family & CHRGD when they lost Disney Channel programming. UK X-Factor & Gilmore Girls seems like a scramble for filler.
