This thread will discuss the schedule updates for the Global TV broadcast network from Corus for the 2017-18 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 2016-17 season have been cancelled by the U.S. network:

The Blacklist: Redemption (NBC)
BrainDead (CBS)
Chicago Justice (NBC)
Emerald City (NBC)
The Great Indoors (CBS)
Pitch (FOX)
Pure Genius (CBS)

Note Ransom has been dropped by CBS, but since it is a Canada/France co-production shot in Toronto, Global may continue the series as part of its Canadian content quota.

NBC is moving Chicago Med to mid-season. Newly acquired mid-season series include Instinct and Superior Donuts. Viewers can catch up on Season 1 of Superior Donuts on CMT Canada this fall before Season 2 joins Global’s schedule in 2018. Rounding out Global’s mid-season lineup are additional returning series including Timeless, Man with a Plan, Shades of Blue, and Elementary.

Global's primetime lineup features 6 new dramas and 4 new comedies joining 23 returning primetime series, with 16 hours of weekly simulcast. See the full press release for new series descriptions.

No mention of Ransom, so it's probably not coming back.

Arisa Cox, Host of Big Brother Canada tweeted:
It's been FIVE BRILLIANT SEASONS and now it's official, @BigBrotherCA is on hiatus. MASSIVE LOVE to our BB fam from the bottom of my heart...We CAN and we WILL get through this together! The second we know more I'll share it, so stay tuned. LOVE!
That means it won't be back next spring (maybe never.)

"Saturday Night Live" Rolls Out Season 43 with Star-Studded 3-Week Lineup on Sept. 30, Oct. 7 & 14
This season "Saturday Night Live" will air live simultaneously around the country on NBC, and Global has updated their schedule to simsub NBC.


GLOBAL GREENLIGHTS ORIGINAL SERIES PRIVATE EYES FOR A THIRD SEASON - Corus Entertainment

Global has renewed Private Eyes for a third season of 12 episodes, with production set to begin in Toronto in spring 2018.

I double-checked the press release and there was no mention of season 2 - they renewed season 2 for 18 episodes, but only aired 9 over the summer.

My assumption is Big Brother Canada will be delayed until after Celebrity Big Brother (U.S. from CBS) airs on Global. CBBUS is to be on in February for only a few weeks and will be condensed like CBBUK.

For 2018, the BB schedule for English-language editions looks like:

CBBUS - February? (3-4 weeks)
BBCA - March-May
BBUS - June-September

Updates from https://www.globaltv.com/schedule/

Global will simsub the CBS schedule for Friday, Oct. 27
8 PM ET Michael Jackson’s Halloween (special)
9 PM ET MacGyver (special time)

MacGyver and Hawaii Five-0 will return to their regular times on Nov. 3.

Thursday, Nov. 2
Ontario, Maritimes and B.C.
7 PM Chicago Fire (special time, pre-NBC)
10 PM S.W.A.T. (series premiere, regular time, s-CBS)

Manitoba and Saskatchewan
9 PM S.W.A.T.
11 PM Chicago Fire

Alberta
7 PM Chicago Fire
8 PM S.W.A.T.

NBC takes over Thursday Night Football from Nov. 9 to Dec. 14. Since Global simsubs NBC's entire Thursday primetime schedule, there won't be conflict at 10 PM ET to simsub S.W.A.T. on CBS. I'm not sure what Global is going to do for the other 2 hours. I think they might show an hour of The Wall and reruns of Taken.

RE: Ransom.

Just getting back from three weeks cruising the Aegean and being out of touch with the "real" world so this comment may be a bit late. Ransom deserved a second season. Glad that it is getting it.

And also happy about a third season for Private Eyes. With the end of Bones, Castle, The Mentalist etc., PE remains one of the only "light" drama procedurals still on TV.

Updates from https://www.globaltv.com/schedule/

Global will carry NBC's animated half-hour The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special Saturday, Oct. 28 around 11:30 p.m. local time. The special stars Tom Hanks as his SNL-originated character and will be followed by a one-hour SNL program of Halloween-themed clips. PVR guides carry these as 2 separate shows, so you should check your recording schedule. Local times vary.

CBS will premiere Superior Donuts in a new time slot on Monday, Oct. 30 at 9 PM. Global will adjust their schedule as follows (note: a lot of cable companies use TV Guide data for their on-screen guide and it has not been updated.)
9:00 PM Superior Donuts (Season Premiere, s-CBS)
9:30 PM Superstore (repeats of previous episodes)

When NBC starts airing Thursday Night Football on Nov. 9, Global will show a movie from 8-10 PM (How The Grinch Stole Christmas) in place of the NBC series.

It looks like Global plans to continue showing Christmas movies on Thursdays, with Elf on Nov. 16.

Upcoming events:
NBC will air Chicago Med at 10 p.m. starting Tuesday Nov. 21 after Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders wraps up. We'll see if Global follows the same schedule and leaves CBS' NCIS: New Orleans in pre-release.

NBC will air special holiday episodes of Will & Grace and Superstore on Tuesday, Dec. 5 in the 9-10 p.m. slot, which Global will probably delay a day or 2.

Global is advertising Chicago Med to be on Mondays, at least the first one.

Updates from https://www.globaltv.com/schedule/

Global will air Chicago Med on Mondays as advertised. (Thanks @whitbyterry) It fills the 9 PM ET slot starting Nov. 20, pushing Superior Donuts and 9JKL to Thursday, Nov. 23 at 8:00 and 8:30 PM, respectively. Reruns of Will & Grace and Superstore follow at 9:00 PM. Don't forget NBC has special holiday episodes of Will & Grace and Superstore on Tuesday, Dec. 5, which Global will probably air on Dec. 7.

EDIT: The Brave finale airs on Nov. 20, so Global will air a rerun of NCIS: New Orleans on Nov. 27. There won't be any new CBS episodes on Friday, Nov. 24, so Global will air Polar Express. Holiday themes will also fill the Saturday night movie slot starting Nov. 25.
